RAY MONTGOMERY NAMED BREWERS VICE PRESIDENT OF AMATEUR SCOUTING/SPECIAL ASSISTANT TO THE GENERAL MANAGER

The Milwaukee Brewers have named Ray Montgomery vice president of amateur scouting/special assistant to the general manager.  Montgomery replaces the late Bruce Seid, who passed away unexpectedly on September 2.  The announcement was made by President of Baseball Operations and General Manager Doug Melvin.

“Ray brings experience, critical leadership and the courage and confidence to make tough decisions,” said Melvin.  “I have confidence that with his recent experience as a director, he will sustain the organization’s success of drafting and development in a highly competitive scouting environment.”

Montgomery, 45, returns for his second stint in the Brewers organization, having started as an area scout for South Texas and Louisiana in December 2002.  He served as an area scout until 2006, Midwest crosschecker from 2007-10 and assistant director of amateur scouting with the Brewers from 2009-10.  Montgomery spent the past four seasons as director of scouting with the Arizona Diamondbacks (2011-14).

Montgomery, who was selected by the Houston Astros in the 13th round of the 1990 First-Year Player Draft, had a 12-year playing career from 1990-2001.  He spent parts of three seasons in the Major Leagues with the Astros (1996-98), batting .241 with 1 HR and 8 RBI in 47 games.  The former outfielder also played in the Pirates (1999-2000) and Mets (2001) organizations.

A First Team All-American at Fordham University in 1990, he was inducted into the school’s Hall of Fame in 1999.

Montgomery currently resides in Simsbury, Connecticut, with his wife, Daniela, and children, Jack and Emma.

Jonathan Lucroy Joins Veterans on Stars and Stripes Honor Flight to Washington, D.C.

Yesterday Jonathan Lucroy joined veterans on the Stars and Stripes Honor Flight from Milwaukee to Washington, D.C.

If you’re not familiar with Stars and Stripes Honor Flight (SSHF), it is a moving cause. According to the National World War II Museum’s website, “approximately every three minutes a memory of World War II – its sights and sounds, its terrors and triumphs – disappears…. [Veterans] are dying quickly – at the rate of approximately 555 a day” and SSHF is in a race against the clock to honor them.

The WWII Memorial in Washington, D.C. did not open until 2004 and many veterans are unable to visit it without assistance. So that’s where SSHF comes in—it is a branch of the National Honor Flight Network that was started in Wisconsin by Port Washington resident Joe Dean. Honor Flight offers trips to Washington, DC free of charge to WWII veterans so that they can get the opportunity to see their memorials. The national program has 123 hubs.

Yesterday, Jonathan was among the dozens of volunteers traveling with 41 World War II and 47 Korean War veterans from Milwaukee to Washington, D.C., for a day of sightseeing. Accompanying Lucroy was his college roommate, John Coker, Jr. who was awarded a Purple Heart after being wounded in Afghanistan in 2011.

Here are some photos from the day, rounded up from the Stars and Stripes Honor Flight’s Twitter and Facebook accounts, as well as Jonathan’s:

Back in 2012, Miller Park hosted the Field of Honor event, which featured the world premiere of the feature length film, “The Story of Stars and Stripes Honor Flight” on Miller Park’s high-definition video board.

Brewers Medical Staff Honored

The Milwaukee Brewers are the 2014 recipient of the Martin-Monaghan Award for Best Medical Staff, which is presented by Rotowire.  The Brewers are the first organization to win the award twice (also 2005).  The award was established in 2004.

“The Brewers are honored to receive this award,” said Director of Medical Operations Roger Caplinger.  “Our entire medical staff, including athletic trainers, strength and conditioning coaches, and physicians, strives to provide our athletes with the most comprehensive medical care in baseball.  We have a passion and focus to be forward-thinking, innovative and progressive in injury prevention.  The support we receive from Brewers ownership and our baseball operations executive team is critical as they consistently commit the resources needed for us to be successful.”

The Martin-Monaghan Award winner is based on several criteria, including days and dollars lost to injury this year and over the past three years.  The award is voted on by a panel of experts.

“This award illustrates a well-deserved recognition of the talents and dedication displayed by our entire medical staff to an extremely important facet of today’s game,” said President of Baseball Operations and General Manager Doug Melvin.  “Under the leadership of (Vice President and Assistant General Manager) Gord Ash and Roger Caplinger, they are the people who not only help a team keep its players on the field, but also contribute to the careers and success of numerous players.”

The 2014 Martin-Monaghan Award for Best Medical Staff will be presented to the Brewers at the Baseball Winter Meetings in San Diego this December.

BREWERS ANNOUNCE NEW TIMELESS TICKET

For the Brewers fan who wants the ultimate gift, today we announced that we are offering a limited edition Timeless Ticket that guarantees a ticket to one future Brewers home game, including any Postseason game.

The Timeless Ticket will consist of a brass ticket personalized with an engraving of the owner’s name.

Timeless Ticket1

Only 1,000 of the items will be produced. Additional facts about the Timeless Ticket:

  • Each ticket is individually numbered, comes complete with a certificate of authenticity and is packaged in a specially-designed gift box.
  • Each ticket is authenticated by Major League Baseball and includes its own registered ID number under the MLB Authentication program.
  • The ticket weighs approximately one pound, is 6.25” by 3.5,” and sits in a wood display base.
  • The cost of the ticket (which includes the brass engraved ticket and the actual ticket to the game of the owner’s choosing) is $1,000.

This unique opportunity allows the owner to redeem their Timeless Ticket for an actual ticket to any single future Brewers game at Miller Park, whether it’s in 2015 or 2050 or whether it is Opening Day or the 7th game of the World Series.

Timeless Ticket2

To redeem the ticket, the owner just needs to contact the Brewers Box Office with their unique Timeless Ticket information as well as a photo ID and the date of the game he or she would like to attend. After redemption, the owner of the Timeless Ticket will keep the personalized brass statue to display. In addition, Timeless Ticket holders may purchase up to three additional companion tickets for the redeemed game at the single game box office price.

All ticket redemptions are subject to availability and owners of the Timeless Ticket are advised to contact the Brewers Box Office with their selected game as early as possible. Redemptions for the Timeless Ticket will be become available once dates for public ticket sales have been announced.

Fans may purchase the Timeless Ticket by calling 414-902-4609 or by sending an email to BrewersTeamStore@Brewers.com.
