“HANK, THE BALLPARK PUP” CHILDREN’S BOOK DEBUTS AT BREWERS TEAM STORE

On the heels of  our Wisconsin Humane Society Day and BobbleHank Giveaway, a new children’s book was released today, recapping the adventures of Hank, baseball’s most celebrated canine.

“Hank, The Ballpark Pup,” written by Karen Winnick, went on sale on this afternoon with a special kick-off event.  Ms. Winnick and Hank appeared at the Team Store where the first 75 people in line received a free copy of the book, as well as an opportunity to have their book signed by the author and a photo taken with Hank.

Brewers Hank Book Signing

The 40-page, hard-cover book was designed and illustrated by 2-Story Creative and retails in the Brewers Team Store by Majestic for $19.95.

For all Hank-themed items sold by the Brewers, including the new book, 20% of the retail price will be donated to the “Hank Fund.” To date, more than $130,000 has been raised for the fund through Hank merchandise sales.

Ms. Winnick is the author and illustrator of numerous books, including “Mr. Lincoln’s Whiskers,” “Barn Sneeze,” and “Gemina, The Crooked-Neck Giraffe.” Her love of animals extends to her role as a Los Angeles Zoo Commissioner, and her poems have been published in magazines and anthologies.

Our Dog Has His Day: Wisconsin Humane Society Day at Miller Park

It’s Wisconsin Humane Society Day here at Miller Park, all thanks to Hank, the famous Ballpark Pup who first appeared at Brewers Spring Training camp on February 17, the day of the first workout for pitchers and catchers.

Since that day when he immediately captured the hearts of everyone at Maryvale Baseball Park, as well as pet-lovers across the world, we have worked closely with the Wisconsin Humane Society on both the care for and events involving Hank, raising awareness and funds for the organization along the way.

We are pleased to honor this great organization by hosting many special festivities at the ballpark.

Tonight, all fans in attendance at the game received a “BobbleHank,” in partnership with West Bend Mutual Insurance, and a portion of the proceeds from tickets sales for the game were donated to the Wisconsin Humane Society’s “Hank Fund,” a pool that benefits stray animals in their care transferred from the Milwaukee Area Domestic Animal Control Commission, as well as stray animals at the WHS Ozaukee and Racine Campuses. Brewers players have stepped forward and contributed to the fund as well.

Then, Brewers Community Foundation presented a $130,000 check to the Wisconsin Humane Society in an on-field, pre-game ceremony featuring Hank, the “Ballpark Pup.” The donation was raised from sales of Hank merchandise items in the Brewers Team Store by Majestic, as well as donations from fans at Hank’s various appearances. Twenty percent of the retail sales from all Hank-related items benefit the Wisconsin Humane Society’s “Hank Fund.”

Hank Check

During the game, the Wisconsin Humane Society as well as the Milwaukee Area Domestic Animal Control Commission (MADACC) each have an information table located on the Field Level Concourse, and the two organizations also have adoptable dogs for fans to visit in the right field corner (also the Field Level Concourse).

During the entire three game series against the Cincinnati Reds, Brewers Community Foundation invites fans to drop off items for animal shelters during the Foundation’s Drive for Charity. Items that will be collected include canned or dry puppy, dog, cat and kitten food; dog and cat toys (no stuffed toys, please); dog and cat treats; dog harnesses; cat litter; towels; and stainless steel food and water bowls.  While supplies last, fans that donate an item or make a $5 contribution will receive a collectible pin featuring, Hank.  Donation tables and bins will be located at the Hot Corner, the Right Field Gate, and next to the Field Level Guest Relations near the Home Plate Gate. They will be available from gate opening through the second inning.

Also, the newest Brewers mascot, a Hank-themed “walkabout,” made its debut. The mascot is mingling with fans on the concourses tonight and will be at future Brewers home games.

He also made an appearance in the Brewers TV Booth:

Hank the (actual) dog also appeared in the Sausage Race in the middle of the 6th inning:

In addition, the Brewers Team Store introduced the latest Hank item: a Hank watch from Modify Watches. Modify Watches are fun and colorful timepieces featuring mix-and-match faces and straps. Custom combinations mean you can build the perfect “Mods” to match your style, fit your mood and support the Crew.

Earlier this week, we also announced that a new children’s book, “Hank, The Ballpark Pup” will be released on Thursday at the Brewers Team Store.

Thanks to all 45, 205 of you who came out for Wisconsin Humane Society Day at Miller Park!

We’re happy that Hank’s story can brighten everyone’s day, and also greatly benefit other animals who are stray, homeless or have other needs along the way.

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.
