Brewers Walk-Up & Entrance Music: Updated 7/30/15

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!

About TeamSmile

TeamSmile is a non-profit organization that has created partnerships with professional sports teams, local dentists, dental organizations, dental schools, and area volunteers to help promote the importance of dental care. This event is funded by Brewers Community Foundation and Delta Dental.

Off to the Races! Time to Start Training for the Brewers Mini!

This summer, we’ve offered you a plethora of opportunities to run in, around and through Miller Park.

From the Brewers Community Foundation’s Famous Racing Sausages 5k Run/Walk which was held earlier this month to the Brewers Mini-Marathon +10K in September, there’s something for athletes of every level.

And, speaking of the Brewers Mini-Marathon + 10K, you have until this Friday (July 31) to sign up and save on the registration fee.

And, if you’re on the fence and concerned you won’t be ready in time, don’t fear. Thanks to Performance Running Outfitters (PRO), our official training partner of the Brewers Mini-Marathon + 10K, we’ve got training programs designed to help you hit your stride.

Performance Running Outfitters is locally owned by Trae and Jessica Hoepner, who together we have over 20 years of coaching and 30 years of running expertise. Once again, PRO is offering two different training programs, one to help you train for the Brewers Mini-Marathon (13.1) miles and another to help you tackle the 10K distance.

While the Brewers Mini training program is already underway, you still have until this Saturday (August 1) to sign up for the Brewers 10K Training Program, which begin at PRO’s locations in Brookfield and Shorewood.

A Brewers Mini-Marathon poster hangs proudly in Performance Running Outfitters' Brookfield location. PRO is the official training partner of the Brewers Mini + 10K.

Here’s what that entails:

Brewers 10K Training Program

The Get Fit 10k program is geared towards the moderately fit runner, former runner, or beginning runner who has already finished a 5k and wants more of a challenge with weekly motivation. This is a progressive course which will focus on completing a longer distance each week.  Performance Running Outfitters will provide a training program, weekly emails with motivation and necessary information for runners.

It is recommended that you can run a 5k before beginning this program and have an “ok” from a medical professional with a clean bill of health. The program will begin on Monday, August 3 (Shorewood) or Tuesday, August 4 (Brookfield) and meet for 8 weeks. Runners looking for additional group support are encouraged to attend PRO’s Thursday fun runs.

For a $75 fee (which does not include race registration), program participants will receive:

  • Tech Tee and Running Socks
  • Weekly emails with advice from coach
  • PRO Coupon – 20% OFF
  • Video gait analysis with footwear recommendation
  • Seminars on cadence & speed, nutrition & hydration, etc.

This year’s training program is also supported by Turbana. They are providing training tips relating to hydration and nutrition in weekly newsletters as well as coupons for runners to save on bananas at their local Sendik’s store. 

“It’s all about getting knowledge and information to help you become a smart and healthy runner,” said Micaela, one of PRO’s friendly folks who helps run the program.

“Most people are more successful in a group setting. It’s all about camaraderie and having fun while you’re out there. Training by yourself can become mundane, especially in the summer when it’s hot out. Here, we have new topics every week. We cover everything from hydration and nutrition to proper running form to good shoes, etc., so the goal in the end is to prepare them to run the race, so they also have a good mindset of what they’re getting into.”

Michaela says the folks who participate in the program run the gamut from beginners to people who participate every year because they like the camaraderie and accountability.

For more information, or to register for this program, click here. You can also register in person at one of the PRO locations.

Speaking of training… you can now pick up these special “in training” shirts,, along with official Brewers Mini +10k hoodies, new ½ zips and other merchandise at BrewersMini.com.  Items may also be available at packet pick-up on September 24 and 25, while supplies last.

Brewers Community Achievers: Tammy Conforti

The Brewers Community Achievers Program recognizes residents throughout the state of Wisconsin each month during the season for displaying extraordinary efforts in their community.

This month’s honoree is Tammy Conforti. Tammy was recognized on the field prior to tonight’s Brewers vs. Indians game at Miller Park and also threw out a first pitch.

Tammy is the founder and President of The Kenosha Dream Playground Project. Tammy has worked as a teaching assistant for children with special needs in the Kenosha Unified School District for the past 16 years. She became inspired to start this project after seeing a handicap-accessible swing while on vacation in South Dakota. Upon her return from that vacation, she started on her quest  with a mere $300 of her own funds from her craft sales that she was saving for a trip to Hawaii.

Tammy has been advocating and educating for a fully inclusive and handicap-accessible playground in Kenosha for the past three years. She regularly speaks at meetings of the Kenosha Parks Commission and Common Council to share her vision. She formed a committee of area residents to help her spread the word on the need for an accessible inclusive play area and organized a public/private partnership with the City of Kenosha and the Kenosha Achievement Center. Tammy has presented her vision at numerous schools, churches and community service organizations in Southeastern Wisconsin. In just under three years, Tammy has raised over one million dollars and her dream will become a reality this September as the Kenosha Dream Playground will be built by volunteers in a community build.

Thank you, Tammy for your perseverance and hard work in the community!

Do you know someone who is a Community Achiever?

Perhaps they started a neighborhood clean-up program, volunteered to prepare meals for their elderly neighbors or even performed some feat of heroism. Nominate them today by clicking here.

All adults and school-aged children throughout the state of Wisconsin are eligible to participate in the Community Achievers Award program.
