Today at Miller Park, Brewers President of Baseball Operations and General Manager Doug Melvin held his end of season press conference. The 45 minute session touched on a number of topics about the 2013 Brewers and what the off-season and future hold for the team.
In addition, the Brewers Media Relations Department released the annual end-of-season notes packet! Always a popular piece of information to get Brewers media (and now fans) through the off-season, the end-of-season notes has everything you need from a statistical standpoint.

Here are two videos from two videos with some highlights of what Melvin had to say:
There are a lot of signs that the entire organization is looking ahead to 2014. As Cait mentioned earlier, the field renovation is already underway, the baseball ops department is looking ahead and here in media relations, we will soon get started on the 2014 Media Guide!
It’s true, Brewers fans really are the best fans in all of baseball.
Thank you so much for coming out to Miller Park and showing your support this season.

Stay tuned to the blog and our social channels as we wrap up the 2013 season and look forward to 2014–we’ll have more to share.
Fans should plan to bring their appetite for baseball, food and drinks to upcoming games at Miller Park because for the month of August, the Brewers are treating.
Milwaukee Brewers Chairman and Principal Owner Mark Attanasio today announced what could be a first in all of Major League sports – all fans attending any of the 12 Brewers home games in August will receive a $10 voucher for free concessions, merchandise and game tickets at Miller Park.
“This has been a challenging season for all of us, but the one thing that has never wavered has been the tremendous support we have received from fans who love the Brewers,” Attanasio said today. “We wanted to do something meaningful to show our appreciation, and we will strive to provide the best fan experience possible.”
Here are the details: Every ticketed fan coming through the turnstiles in August will receive a voucher good for $10 that can be used for food, beverage, merchandise and tickets sold at nearly every outlet (only excluding Friday’s Front Row, portable merchandise stands, Miller Park Suites, the Johnson Controls Stadium Club and All-Inclusive entertaining areas). Vouchers may be combined (meaning that fans attending with friends and family members, or those attending multiple games, can combine the vouchers for larger purchases) and used at any remaining 2013 home game. The vouchers can also be used toward the purchase of game tickets this season.
“The deadline is the end of the season to use the vouchers,” said Rick Schlesinger, Brewers Chief Operating Officer. “If you get them in August, you can use them at the game you are attending or if you are coming back to another game you can use them at another game, basically all the way to the end of the season. You will get the voucher at the gate and go to a concession stand or merchandise store or ticket window.”
With attendance expected to average over 30,000 per game in August, the Brewers expect to distribute more than $3.6 million worth of vouchers.
“Different teams have done different things for their venues and fan base,” Schlesinger added. “We have not found anyone who has done something this dramatic. This is a lot of money to give back to the fans. It’s a lot of food, beverage, beer, merchandise and ticket discounts absorbed by this voucher. We haven’t seen another team do this for an entire month, let alone a busy month. When Mark first challenged us to come up with something and proposed this concept, my initial reaction was we do something in September because it’s the end of the season and obviously from a financial perspective, its smaller crowds. But Mark said no, and wanted to do something a little more dramatic and with more impact. The best way to do that is do it in August when we have bigger crowds and has the benefit of being immediate.”
This is the first in a series of special fan appreciation initiatives that the Brewers will unveil during the final two months of the season under an umbrella program known as “Fans First.” Additional details of “Fans First” events will be announced throughout August and September.

Brewers Announce Postseason Single-Game Ticketing Opportunity Details; Register Online Beginning Monday at Noon CT
Things have certainly been exciting around here!
Today we announced details for a Postseason Single-Game Ticketing Opportunity that will give fans an opportunity to register for the right to purchase tickets to potential individual 2012 Postseason games held at Miller Park.
Beginning Monday, September 24 at noon CT.,fans interested in registering may go to brewers.com/postseason and look for the link to “Postseason Single-Game Ticketing Opportunity.”
With inventory expected to be very limited, it is likely that only a very small number of fans will be selected to purchase tickets through this registration opportunity.
“In 2011, we had over 200,000 fans register for a similar opportunity and we were only able to accommodate a very small fraction of them,” said Rick Schlesinger, Brewers Chief Operating Officer. “As such, we encourage fans looking for guaranteed Postseason ticket rights to contact our ticket sales office at (414) 902-HITS (4487) and place a deposit on 2013 Season Seats.”
Fans looking to ensure tickets to Postseason games at Miller Park may bypass this single game registration by placing a deposit on a Season Seat Plan for 2013.
Details on all Postseason ticket options follow:
POSTSEASON SINGLE-GAME TICKETING OPPORTUNITY
