CAMP DATES FOR “BREWERS BASEBALL ACADEMY PRESENTED BY KWIK TRIP” ANNOUNCED

Today we announced dates and details for this summer’s “Brewers Baseball Academy presented by Kwik Trip.”  The Academy, now in its third season, is open to youth (ages 6-14) and includes 13 separate weeklong baseball/softball camps that will be held in various cities across Wisconsin this summer.  A complete schedule of camp locations and dates is listed below.

BE-13 BaseballAcadem-Logo-FINAL

The camps will be conducted under the supervision of Tim Rappé, Executive Director of the Brewers Baseball Academy.  Last summer, over 1,000 participants took part in the camps.

“In 2014, the Brewers Baseball Academy saw its attendance nearly double from the previous year,” said Rappé.  “Based upon feedback from parents, our first two seasons were a major success, and this year we’re excited to add three more locations to accommodate the popularity of the Academy.  We expect all of the camps to sell out this summer.”

Each camp runs Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. with instruction provided by experienced youth coaches.  During one of the five camp days, campers are transported by bus to Miller Park for a one-of-a-kind experience as they are treated to a guest appearance from a current Brewers player.  They will also receive instruction from a Brewers coach and have their photos taken.

A unique component of the Brewers Baseball Academy is a video motion analysis of each participant.  Every camper’s swing will be recorded, analyzed and shared with the player and his/her parents.  In addition, all participants will take part in baseball or softball skills competitions.  Upon completion of the last camp, the top scorers will be invited to the Champions Day Finals at Miller Park.  Boys and girls will compete separately in appropriate age groups.

The fee for the weeklong camp is $395 per child, which includes 30 hours of exceptional instruction, a complete Brewers uniform, four Brewers game tickets to one of three select games – compliments of Kwik Trip – and a V.I.P. day at Miller Park.

Registration is currently available at Brewers.com/camps. Registrations received prior to March 31 will receive a $25 discount.  This discount may not be combined with any other discount.  If registering two or more children, each child will receive a $25 discount when booked together.  A limited number of spots are available for each camp location.

As the presenting sponsor of the Brewers Baseball Academy, Kwik Trip will award 240 random participants with $25 gift cards to their locations.  One lucky camper from each host city will also receive a personalized camp jersey, along with a special presentation during the camp graduation ceremony.

Additional information can be found online at Brewers.com/camps. For questions, please contact Brewers Baseball Academy Executive Director Tim Rappé at Tim.Rappe@brewers.com or call (414) 939-8808.

TEDDY HIGUERA TO BE INDUCTED INTO MILLER PARK WALK OF FAME

Today we announced that pitcher Teddy Higuera will be honored this season as he has been voted as the newest member of the Miller Park Walk of Fame.  A total of 32 votes were cast and Higuera received 25 votes (78.1%), exceeding the threshold of 65% needed for election.

Higuera fell just two votes shy of election last year.

A lifetime Brewer, Higuera played nine seasons with the team.  He started his career in 1985 and went 15-8 with a 3.90 ERA with 127 strikeouts, while finishing as the American League runner-up for Rookie of the Year. The following season, Higuera posted a 20 win season, going 20-11 with a 2.79 ERA, with 207 strikeouts and 17 complete games.  He earned All-Star honors and finished second on the Cy Young Award ballot.  Higuera followed his success by setting the franchise record for strikeouts in a season with 240 in 1987, as he went 18-10 with a 3.85 ERA.  He went 94-64 with 3.61 ERA in his career, and currently ranks third among franchise leaders in career wins and strikeouts (1,081).

“We are thrilled to honor Teddy Higuera with a plaque on the Miller Park Walk of Fame,” said Brewers Chief Operating Officer Rick Schlesinger. “Teddy was a lifetime Brewer, and he still ranks among franchise leaders in many pitching statistics. Just as important, though, is that he’s always been an engaging personality and a terrific representative of those who have worn the Brewers uniform. We look forward to his return to Milwaukee and the opportunity to recognize his achievements with a permanent marker at Miller Park.”

Higuera will travel to Milwaukee and be recognized for the honor in a pre-game ceremony on Friday, August 14 as the Brewers face the Phillies at 7:10 pm.

Joe Adcock (20 votes) and Mike Caldwell (17) were the closest to qualifying among eligible former players and coaches.

There were a total of 29 Brewers players and seven Braves players on the ballot. The ballots included on-field personnel who wore a Brewers or Braves uniform for a minimum of three seasons but have been retired from playing/managing roles for at least three seasons. All players and managers receiving votes on at least 5% of the ballots will remain eligible in 2016.

Past inductees include Hank Aaron, Rollie Fingers, Paul Molitor, Robin Yount in 2001; Commissioner Bud Selig and Cecil Cooper in 2002; Bob Uecker and Harry Dalton in 2003; Jim Gantner and Gorman Thomas in 2004; Don Money and Harvey Kuenn in 2005; Eddie Mathews, Warren Spahn and John Quinn in 2007 (the first year that former Braves players appeared on the ballot); Lew Burdette in 2010 and Johnny Logan in 2013.

Each inductee is honored with a granite plaque that is placed into the terrace area walkway that surrounds Miller Park.

Will Smith Poses as “Bill Schmidt,” Goes Undercover at Brewers on Deck

Somehow, in the midst of all the fun and excitement at Brewers On Deck, Brewers reliever Will Smith (not the actor) was able to go undercover, posing as a reporter for fake news channel WILL-13 (we picked Lancaster, Wisconsin because we wanted a town that started with an “L”).

We outfitted him with a jacket, credentials and a microphone and sent him out into the crowd with a videographer to interview some unsuspecting fans.

And it was awesome:

There was so much great material it was hard to pair it all down. There were also a lot of outtakes, including some interviews with his teammates, which we felt merited their own separate video:

“I had a really good time doing it,” Will told me. “It was a fun experience playing around with the fans.”

Did Will trick you? Let us know in the comments below!

Brewers Reveal Winning T-Shirt Fridays Designs Selected through Fan Vote

In an event that concluded just moments ago, we unveiled the seven designs that will be used for the T-Shirt Friday All Fan Giveaways this year. The winners were announced in a special Main Stage event at Brewers On Deck, the team’s official off-season Fanfest.

All fans in attendance during each of the seven Friday home games from June through August will receive a complimentary Brewers–themed T-shirt (available in both medium and extra-large sizes). And for the first time, fans decided the designs for each of the seven T-Shirt Friday giveaways through an online vote.

From January 12 - 19, a dozen possible T-shirt designs were posted at Brewers.com. Fans were able to vote for their favorite designs, ranking their top seven choices in order from one to seven. Their first choice received seven points, their second choice received six, continuing to their seventh and final vote which received one point.

The results are in and the seven winning designs were revealed with Brewers players, alumni, broadcasters and mascots serving as the “stage models” for each design.
