For players, the song they choose for their walk-up or entrance music is often an important decision. What brief part of a song is going to send a message to the fans—and what do I want that message to be? Do I keep the same song that I had last year? What’s the hit that is going to produce the most hits? Is it a superstitious thing, do I want fans to sing along, or do I just use my favorite song right now?
If you’re like me and you’re attuned to the tunes, you probably enjoy seeing this list each year—and updating your iPod playlists accordingly.
DID YOU KNOW? Make sure you download the free Ballpark App! In addition to check-in offers, ballpark maps, game updates and more, one of the really cool features is “Ballpark Music.” Like a song you hear? Check it out on Ballpark–and you can even download it right there! No Shazam necessary!

STAR WARS NIGHT COMING TO MILLER PARK; Fans Encouraged to Arrive in Costume, but Leave Lightsabers back on their Millennium Falcon
In a time in the near future, in a ballpark near you, the Milwaukee Brewers will host Star WarsTM Night Presented by Kohl’s. On Saturday, May 30, join the Brewers as they duel (with bats, not lightsabers) the Arizona Diamondbacks at 3:10 p.m. in an epic battle against the Dark Side at Miller Park.
A number of Star Wars characters will make special appearances throughout the afternoon and evening. Fans are encouraged to dress in costume and are permitted to wear masks, but the Brewers ask all aspiring Jedis to leave their lightsabers at home. Any and all lightsabers, toy guns or weapons will not be permitted in Miller Park. Fans will still be permitted to use the Force, so long as they do not bring in an actual device.
Earlier this month, fans were asked to post an original video to reenact their favorite Star Wars scene and/or deliver their favorite line from the film on Instagram and/or Twitter using the hashtag #PitchFirstIWill. Patrick Ryan has won the contest after submitting this video:
Patrick receives four Loge Infield Box tickets to the game along with four Jedi Luc bobbleheads, as well as the opportunity to throw out the first pitch prior to the game.
For more information about Star Wars Night presented by Kohl’s or other theme nights at Miller Park, please call 414-902-4777 or visit Brewers.com/specialevents.
STAR WARS and related properties are trademarks and/or copyrights, in the United States and other countries, of Lucasfilm Ltd. and/or its affiliates. © & TM Lucasfilm Ltd.
NOTE: Only those fans who purchased the sold-out Star Wars Night ticket package will receive a limited-edition Jonathan Lucroy “Jedi Luc” bobblehead. A valid voucher is required to pick up the bobblehead and fans can retrieve the giveaway at redemption tables located by sections 406, 435 and one on the first base side on the Field Level Concourse.
The much-anticipated Selig Experience will open to the public on Friday, May 29 when the Brewers begin a three-game series against the Diamondbacks. Throughout this week, 15 pairs of tickets to the May 29 game – including the first public screening of the Selig Experience at 5 p.m. – will be given away as prizes via @Brewers on Twitter. Fans have the opportunity to win the tickets by following @Brewers on Twitter beginning today through Friday, May 22. Prizes will be given away via retweet contests and also through Twitter Trivia during Brewers games this week.
(Note: Friday, May 29 is also the date of our first of 2015. That means if you win, you’ll get to see the Selig Experience, the Brewers vs. Diamondbacks game and a Joe Nichols concert!)
Located on Miller Park’s Loge Level in the left-field corner, the Selig Experience will be open to the general public during all Brewers home games, from the time that gates open until the 7th inning. Admission is free for those with tickets to the game, and will be on a first-come, first-served basis. The attraction will also be open to selected tour groups.
A highlight of the attraction is a multimedia presentation that tells the story of Selig’s role in successfully bringing the Brewers to Milwaukee, saving Major League Baseball in the city with his commitment to build Miller Park, and his tireless efforts to promote and grow the game in his hometown.

For those of you scoring at home, this is one of two Uecker Bobbleheads that will be given away this season. The other comes in the form of his character from Major League, Harry Doyle. That is NOT an All-Fan Giveaway, however. To get that limited edition bobblehead (which talks!), you’ll need to purchase the special Major League Night ticket package at brewers.com/specialevents.
On Sunday, July 19, you can join Matt Garza and his fellow teammates for the Brewers Bowl-A-Thon. Enjoy a unique opportunity to pal around on the pins with your favorite Brewers players, all while helping raise money for the Sojourner Family Peace Center, a safe haven for abused women and children.
There are several packages from which to choose for interested participants, from the simple “Dug-Out Ticket,” which includes admission to the event and complimentary appetizers and beverages, to the “Grand Slam Sponsor Package.” The Grand Slam package includes a bowling lane for up to five guests, shoe rental, sponsorship opportunities, T-shirts, a VIP reception and much more. It also includes 10 Field Level tickets to a future Brewers game and an opportunity to watch the Brewers take batting practice on the field. To top it all off, Matt Garza will take a picture with you and your group at your lane.
Other great packages such as the “Brew Crew” and “The Batter” include unique prizes and features, all while helping raise money for a worthy cause.
The goal of the Sojourner Family Peace Center is to ensure the safety of victims of domestic violence and provide a pathway out of violence for victims and abusers, by making positive and lasting changes. The Center is the largest nonprofit provider of domestic violence prevention and intervention in Wisconsin, serving over 9,500 clients each year.

Reviving Baseball in the Inner Cities, or the RBI Program, is a MLB youth baseball initiative and partnership with the Boys & Girls Clubs. The RBI program was developed by former scout and Major Leaguer John Young in Los Angeles in 1989 to provide youth ages 9 to 17 the opportunity to learn and enjoy the game of baseball. Each month, we honor RBI student athletes on the diamond that portray dedication to academics, community involvement, leadership, reliability and monthly performance.
This month’s honoree is Leon Dewitt Finney IV.
Leon is a sophomore at West Allis Central High School and is a hardworking student with a 3.0 GPA. Leon enjoys playing baseball as a pitcher and centerfielder in hopes to one day play for the big leagues. When Leon is not playing baseball, he is volunteering at Beckum-Stapleton Little League and volunteers as a pitching instructor with the younger RBI players. Leon has a great attitude and is considered a leader to his teammates.
Thanks, Leon for your passion for baseball and contributions to the community!
Leon was honored in a pregame ceremony tonight and tossed out a ceremonial first pitch:
Want to help support the RBI Program? It’s as simple as sending a tweet!
When a Brewers pitcher strikes out an opposing batter, make sure to jump on Twitter and tweet: #WHIFF and include our handle, @Brewers.
That’s all you have to do! Each month, if we’re in the top 7 teams, we can win anywhere from $2,500 to $10,000 for our local RBI program. AND the team with the most #Whiff tweets for the season will receive an additional $20,000 donation!
We won $40,000 last season, so keep tweeting to help us support our local program again in 2015! View the current standings at mlb.com/whiff.
