#LeahStrong: Going to Bat in the Fight Against Pediatric Cancer

Today, we came across this tweet from the NFL and two things stood out to us.

One, we couldn’t help but notice the Brewers cap sported by Cincinnati Bengals defensive tackle Devon Still.

But much more than that, two, we’ve been touched by the story of his 4-year-old daughter Leah, and her battle with pediatric cancer.

This week on Thursday Night Football, the Bengals will take on the Cleveland Browns and Leah will be in attendance to see her dad play for the first time, as she has been recovering from surgeries.

During a break in the game, the Bengals will make a $1.25 million dollar donation to Cincinnati Childrens’ Hospital for pediatric cancer research. The donation encompasses proceeds from the sale of Still’s jersey and Leah is expected to be part of the ceremony.

Leah, we admire your bravery and love your attitude. We also love your dad’s cap. The Brewers are donating $1000 to the fight against pediatric cancer and we’re encouraging our fans to do the same.

Donations can be funneled through Brewers Community Foundation by clicking here. Be sure to select “In Honor Of” and earmark the donation for Leah Still.

In the fight against cancer–no matter the team, no matter the sport and no matter what–we’re all on the same team.

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.
