As part of the organization’s community initiative known as “Beyond the Diamond,” Brewers players and coaches participate in a series of community outreach events throughout the season. The program is built around a partnership between Brewers players, coaches, alumni, Brewers Wives and team personnel working hands-on in the community.  The community events are funded in part by Brewers Community Foundation and focus on the areas of health, education, recreation and basic needs.

A favorite in Pittsburgh, this sandwich includes pan-fried spicy capicola and genoa salami piled high and topped with provolone cheese.  It is topped with tomatoes, zesty coleslaw and fresh-cut fries and served on a fresh Italian bread.

This is the first time this sandwich has been featured and it is a classic.  The sandwich is $10.25 and will be sure to fill you up.

Also available is the always popular Spaghetti-in-a-Meatball. That is $9.50.

The Double Clutch stand is on the Loge Level outside section 215 (on the first base side of the press box).

Enjoy!

Brewers Pet Calendars Have Arrived!

If you’ll recall, earlier this season, we were working with the Brewers Wives and the Wisconsin Humane Society to create a Brewers Pet Calendar, featuring photos of the players and coaches with their pets and/or animals from the Wisconsin Humane Society. We also held a contest where one winner and her dog were selected to appear in the calendar (congrats again, Jessica!)

Well, the calendars have arrived and are now available at the Brewers Team Store by Majestic at Miller Park.

Let me just say–they turned out great! All of the photos were taken by our team photographer, Scott Paulus.

Brewers Pet Calendar

 

This is an 18-month calendar, starting with September of 2014, which means you don’t have to wait until the New Year to display it.

They are $14.95 with proceeds benefiting the Wisconsin Humane Society.

Derek’s Day at Miller Park

Brandee and Steve Lendosky‘s son Derek passed away in an accident on August 4, 2013, just three days before his 10th birthday; this was a tremendous tragedy, but they have chosen to turn the experience into a way to both honor Derek’s life and spread his kindness to people they meet.

Random Acts Of Kindness (with no recognition needed) began happening in some of the most creative, inspiring and touching ways imaginable,  spreading the message to “Do it 4 Derek” and  think of others first.

And today is Derek’s Day at Miller Park.

Dereks Day

Steve threw out the ceremonial First Pitch in Derek’s honor prior to the Brewers vs. Blue Jays game and Steve and his family, along with close to 500 others are at today’s game, performing random acts of kindness:

They’re here sporting bright green “Do it 4 Derek” tees and handing out $1000 in concession money and 16 signed baseballs (provided by the Brewers Community Relations department) to random fans.

If you are/were approached by someone in the group, there is no catch. They simply as that you visit their website to learn more (there you can view the Random Acts of Kindness Map and add to it) and, most importantly, that you pay it forward.
