Selig Experience Attracts Out-of-Town Visitors

The Selig Experience, a state-of-the-art attraction at Miller Park to honor Commissioner Emeritus and former Brewers Owner Allan H. (Bud) Selig, has been open for just about a month now and fans have been lining up for it at every game.

In addition, over the last few weeks, former Brewers players who have found themselves visiting Milwaukee with opposing Clubs have made it a destination as well.

Last week, former Brewers Ned Yost and Dale Sveum (now manager and hitting coach, respectively) visited the experience when they were in town the Kansas Royals:

And today, Hall-of-Famer and former Brewer Paul Molitor, who is in town as manager of the Minnesota Twins, had the chance to view the Selig Experience with Selig himself.

Selig Experience Unveiled at Miller Park; See it For Yourself Beginning Tomorrow

Tonight, the Selig Experience, a state-of-the-art attraction at Miller Park to honor Commissioner Emeritus and former Brewers Owner Allan H. (Bud) Selig, was unveiled at a private function that included Selig and his family, current MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred, Brewers Owner Mark Attanasio, Manager Craig Counsell, Hank Aaron, Robin Yount, Bob Uecker, Rachel and Sharon RobinsonBarry Alvarez and several Brewers players and coaches, as well as other special guests.

The event kicked off with a program on the field at Miller Park, which included remarks from Uecker, Manfred, Attanasio and Selig, in addition to Brad Shelton, the Creative Director/Project Development at BRC Imagination Arts, the experience design agency that led the design and production of the Selig Experience.

“This is one of those really rare unique times in life where you see a little boy’s dreams come true,” Selig said. “When you look around and you walk Miller Park tonight… you see Henry Aaron sitting there, Robin Yount, Bob Uecker…The last 51 years are filled with really great memories.”

Following the program, guests were invited to view the Experience and enjoy dinner. Here’s your own sneak peek at the Experience:

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Selig’s dedication to baseball has paralleled his love of his hometown of Milwaukee. His first significant move as an executive was to return Major League Baseball to Milwaukee in 1970, when he founded the Milwaukee Brewers.

In its first decade, the Brewers featured some of the great teams of that era, which eventually led to an American League pennant and World Series appearance in 1982.

During his tenure as Brewers owner, Selig earned United Press International’s 1978 Executive of the Year award, and the franchise was honored with seven “Organization of the Year” awards.

In the 1990s, Selig began his efforts to build a new ballpark in Milwaukee to replace the aging County Stadium, and Miller Park opened for its first season of play in 2001.

Hearing some of the reactions from the Brewers players and coaches, it’s easy to see that the Experience resonates with those who grew up in the area as well as those who may not know as much of the history of the city and team.

“It was definitely pretty cool. It was good to learn more about the history behind the team, Bud Selig, and Miller Park, even,” said pitcher Mike Fiers. “It was cool to see his office, the different pictures, the clips from some of the games, to see a lot of coaches now that you didn’t realize were part of Brewers history like that. Great experience. It really makes you appreciate everything we have here.”

“I knew most of the history, growing up just over the border, but it was still really cool to see. I texted Dale Sveum to tell him his home run on Easter Sunday (1987) made it into the Experience,” said Third Base Coach Ed Sedar.

Bullpen Catcher Marcus Hanel is a Wisconsin native, so the Experience was especially meaningful to him: “It was great. Very well done. I came to games at County Stadium when I was young.  I was there for Robin Yount’s 3000th hit. I was in 5th grade in 1982. I remember all of that. Those were my childhood heroes. I love how they integrated the past with the present. Coming out of it, I was pretty pumped up. I thought they did a great job,” said Hanel.

The attraction will debut to the public tomorrow (Friday, May 29) when the gates to Miller Park open (5:40 pm) prior to the Brewers game against the Diamondbacks.

Selig Experience Unveiling Event Set for Tonight; Public Opening Tomorrow

The Selig Experience, a state-of-the-art attraction at Miller Park to honor Commissioner Emeritus and former Brewers Owner Allan H. (Bud) Selig, will be unveiled tonight at a private function.

Stay tuned to the blog and our social media platforms for photos, updates and livestreams from this special unveiling.

Then tomorrow, the attraction will debut to the public when the gates to Miller Park open (5:40 pm) prior to the Brewers game against the Diamondbacks.

Located on Miller Park’s Loge Level in the left field corner, the Selig Experience will be accessible to the general public during all Brewers home games, from the time that gates open until the 7th inning. Admission is free for those with tickets to the game, and the attraction will also be open to selected tour groups.

Fans can register in advance to see the Selig Experience at Miller Park by visiting Brewers.com/SeligExperience. Additional details include the following:

1)     Every game, there will be two “reserved” shows. All other shows will be on a first come, first served basis.   There is no charge for reserving a space in advance.

2)     Fans must have a separate game ticket for entry into Miller Park, but there is no additional charge for admission to the Selig Experience.

3)   Fans may reserve up to four spots for a tour, but may only register for one tour in advance. Registrations for multiple shows in advance will result in cancellation of all reservations.

4)   Each show is limited to no more than 35 guests.

5)     For the first reserved show each game day, fans must report to the Selig Experience no later than 10 minutes prior to the game’s scheduled start time, and the show will be scheduled to start approximately at the time of the game’s first pitch. The second reserved show will begin approximately one hour after the game’s first pitch, and fans will need to arrive 10 minutes prior to that scheduled show time. Late arrivals will not be granted access to the Selig Experience.

A highlight of the attraction is a multimedia presentation that tells the story of Selig’s role in successfully bringing the Brewers to Milwaukee, saving Major League Baseball in the city with his commitment to build Miller Park, and his tireless efforts to promote and grow the game in his hometown.

The exhibition space totals approximately 1,500 square feet, and will include authentic artifacts from Selig’s tenure as the Brewers owner. It celebrates the fans’ love of the game, as told through the story of the Brewers founder.

The main multimedia show builds to a surprising encounter with the Commissioner himself inside an authentic reproduction of Selig’s County Stadium office, using a technology found in only a handful of exhibits around the world. After the show, Milwaukee fans will be delighted to take a sneak peek into Selig’s office for themselves.

The design and production of the Selig Experience is being led by BRC Imagination Arts, an experience design agency that Turns Brands into Destinations™. For more than three decades, its masterful storytellers have been chosen by iconic brands and cultural attractions all over the world to inspire and engage their audiences.

Brewers to Honor Selig by Retiring Uniform #1 at Miller Park

Today, as he visits Miller Park on his farewell tour, we announced that the Club will honor retiring Major League Baseball Commissioner and former Brewers Owner Allan H. (Bud) Selig by retiring uniform #1 in a ceremony that will take place at Miller Park next season.

Selig Retired Number Miller Park

“We are proud to pay tribute to Commissioner Selig with this honor for all of his work on behalf of the Brewers as well as Major League Baseball,” said Brewers Chairman and Principal Owner Mark Attanasio. “The uniform number being retired in the Commissioner’s honor is significant, as the existence of the Milwaukee Brewers and Miller Park are a direct result of the Commissioner’s vision. Without his tireless efforts, neither would be a reality.”

Selig05 copy

This is the first in a series of initiatives that the Brewers have planned to honor Commissioner Selig, who will retire at the end of this year. Additional details will be announced later.

Commissioner Selig said: “I thank Mark Attanasio and his entire organization for this extraordinary honor.  The Brewers are a product of my hometown’s passion for Major League Baseball, and it was a privilege to play a part in restoring the spirit of community and kinship that the National Pastime inspires.  Knowing the great history of this franchise, I am truly humbled to look forward to a memorable day at Miller Park next season.”

Selig’s dedication to baseball has paralleled his love of his hometown of Milwaukee. His first significant move as an executive was to return Major League Baseball to Milwaukee in 1970, when he founded the Milwaukee Brewers. In its first decade, the Brewers featured some of the great teams of that era, which eventually led to an American League pennant and World Series appearance in 1982.

During his tenure as Brewers owner, Selig earned UPI’s 1978 Executive of the Year award, and the franchise was honored with seven “Organization of the Year” awards.

In the 1990s, Selig began his efforts to build a new ballpark in Milwaukee to replace the aging County Stadium, and Miller Park opened for its first season of play in 2001.

More recently, Selig was honored with a statue at Miller Park, which was unveiled on August 24, 2010.

He became the ninth Commissioner of Major League Baseball, and during his tenure the sport has thrived.  As Commissioner, Selig has implemented important changes throughout Major League Baseball. He made popular structural changes in the game, including the Wild Card, the three-division format, Interleague Play and Instant Replay. He put in place the toughest drug-testing program in American professional sports. He also profoundly affected baseball’s economic landscape by instituting meaningful revenue sharing among the clubs as well as successful ventures, such as MLB Advanced Media, MLB Network, and the World Baseball Classic. MLB truly has thrived under Selig’s stewardship: It has enjoyed its longest period of labor peace with its Players Association and has consistently posted records levels of attendance and revenues.

Uecker Statue Unveiled at Miller Park

All month long we’ve been celebrating our very own Mr. Baseball with photos, our favorite “Ueckerisms” and more all leading up to his statue dedication today.

In front of a crowd that included too many notables from the worlds of baseball and entertainment to list, his family, friends, colleagues and fans, Bob Uecker‘s statue was finally unveiled, ‘juuust a bit outside’ Miller Park.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Music was provided by Doc Severinsen and his Big Band. Bob Costas was the emcee. Speakers included Mark Attanasio, Dick Ebersol, Commissioner Selig and Hank Aaron. Robin Yount sent in a taped message from Italy where he was attending a family wedding. The Mr. Belvedere cast was reunited. Hank’s wife, Billye, serenaded Bob with a beautiful rendition of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow.”

And the laughs kept on coming. Oh, the laughs.

“My dad says that every time you make someone laugh, you add 15 minutes to his life,” Brewers Chairman and Principal Owner Mark Attanasio said, calculating that if that’s true, then Bob has personally extended his life by at least one year so far–or over 34,000 laughs.

Well, everyone in attendance and watching on FSWisconsin also extended their lives today as each person who spoke during the hour and a half long ceremony (including Bob himself, of course) had their own funny stories to share.

In his speech, Commissioner Selig called Bob “the best ambassador for this franchise” who “embodies goodwill, not only for the Brewers but for the sport of baseball” and today we were reminded once again just how fortunate we are to have him here in Wisconsin with us, providing the soundtrack of summer for Brewers fans everywhere.

Cheers to Bob Uecker, everyone!

Brewers Set to Unveil Bob Uecker Statue on Friday at Miller Park

We’ve been celebrating Hall-of-Fame Broadcaster Bob Uecker all month with photos, our favorite “Ueckerisms” and more across our various social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest, all leading up to a statue unveiling this Friday juuust a bit outside of Miller Park.

Fans have been inquiring about details for the event and we have them for you here now:

In front of an audience of friends, family and dignitaries, the statue will be revealed at its home near Miller Park’s Home Plate Plaza in a ceremony that is scheduled to start at 1:30p.m. Bob Costas, broadcaster with NBC Sports and the MLB Network, will serve as emcee.

There is a very limited amount of standing room for the general public around the perimeter of the tent, and it is available free of charge on a first come, first served basis. For those at home or work, you can watch the ceremony live on FOX Sports Wisconsin.

If you’re unable to make the ceremony, you can still be one of the first people to see the statue in person at Miller Park as tickets still remain for Friday night’s game vs. the Pittsburgh Pirates at 7:10 p.m. Make sure you get there early, as Uecker will be throwing out a ceremonial first pitch.
Uecker’s statue will join those of Hank Aaron, Robin Yount and Commissioner of Baseball Allan H. “Bud” Selig. The Aaron and Yount statues were unveiled on April 5, 2001, the first year of Miller Park’s existence, and were donated by the Allan H. (Bud) Selig Foundation. On August 24, 2010, Selig became the third honoree when his statue was unveiled in an afternoon program.

The Uecker statue is cast in bronze, measures over seven feet in height not including the base, and was designed and produced by Brian Maughan, who (along with Douglas Kwart) also created the Aaron, Selig and Yount statues.

Watch as preparations are made to get the statue in place for Friday:

We’re Celebrating Mr.Baseball with Our Favorite Ueckerisms & More All Month Long

Back in March, we announced that the legendary “Mr. Baseball,” Bob Uecker, will be honored on Friday, August 31 with a statue placed outside of Miller Park near the Home Plate Plaza.

Well, it is now August and we’re extending our celebration of Mr. Baseball all month long with photos, our favorite “Ueckerisms” and more across our various social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest.

 

We also want to hear from you! On Twitter, post any photos you may have, or share your favorite memories of Uecker, or listening to Uecker, in 140 characters or less using the hashtag: #Uecker. 

Not on Twitter? Share your stories by posting in the comment fields below our various Uecker pictures on Facebook, or email your personal photos to: JohnandCait@brewers.com (Subject line: UECKER).

We’ll compile some of the best fan submissions and share them here on the blog.

An iconic figure for the franchise, Uecker has provided the soundtrack of summer to generations of fans listening to Milwaukee Brewers games on the Brewers Radio Network. His irreverent style and knowledge of the game are unrivaled and his talents have also been known to audiences worldwide for years through his work on television and film projects.

This year marks the 50th Anniversary of Uecker’s first Major League game and, while Uecker’s roots will always be in baseball (including six seasons as a player and 42 years as a Brewers broadcaster), his career includes an incredible base of performing and entertaining all featuring one common thread – he always leaves the audience laughing.

Uecker blasted onto the national scene as an entertainer in 1969. A visit with Al Hirt led to Johnny Carson booking Uecker for an appearance on the “Tonight Show.” The chemistry between Uecker and Carson was immediate, and it led to approximately 100 encore appearances. Uecker soon became one of the most sought-after guests on the Talk Show circuit as appearances followed on the “Mike Douglas” and “Merv Griffin” shows, “Late Night with David Letterman” and even a hosting role on “Saturday Night Live.”

Highly respected in the industry, Uecker was inducted into the Radio Hall of Fame in 2001 and the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) Hall of Fame this past spring.

Uecker’s credits go far beyond guest appearances and play-by-play. In 1985, he launched a television acting career as one of the stars of ABC’s sitcom “Mr. Belvedere,” which put 122 episodes into syndication. He also hosted two syndicated television shows, “Bob Uecker’s Wacky World of Sports” and “Bob Uecker’s War of the Stars.”

One of Uecker’s most memorable roles came as the anchor of arguably the most successful advertising campaign in the history of television – The “Miller Lite All-Stars.” For years, Uecker served as the captain of the crew that acted in spots promoting Lite Beer from Miller.

As a film actor, Uecker starred in what is widely regarded as one of the best baseball movies of all time, serving as a radio announcer in the film “Major League.” He followed that up with a reprised role in the equally popular “Major League II.”

Uecker’s national sports broadcasting experience included serving as color commentator for ABC Sports coverage of Monday Night Baseball, League Championship Series and World Series, and NBC’s Major League Baseball Game of the Week.

A former catcher who spent six seasons in the Major Leagues, Bob authored a book entitled “Catcher In the Wry,” a humorous look back on the years he spent with the Milwaukee/Atlanta Braves, St. Louis Cardinals and Philadelphia Phillies. One of his career highlights as a player came in 1964 when he was a member of the World Champion St. Louis Cardinals.

Despite his national attention and success, Uecker has always worked toward helping others. His charitable efforts benefit many organizations, including the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Uecker will be the fourth person to be honored with a Miller Park statue. Hank Aaron and Robin Yount were the first to be recognized with statues that were unveiled on April 5, 2001, the first year of Miller Park’s existence. The first two statues were donated by the Allan H. (Bud) Selig Foundation. On August 24, 2010, Major League Baseball Commissioner and former Brewers Owner Allan H. (Bud) Selig became the third honoree when his statue was unveiled in an afternoon program.

The statue will be cast in bronze, measure over seven feet in height not including the base, and is being designed and produced by Brian Maughan, who (along with Douglas Kwart) also created the Aaron, Selig and Yount statues.

Specific details related to the statue unveiling & ceremony on August 31 will be announced later this month.

Please join as we celebrate all month long!
