Hank has quietly appeared at several games this year, but his availability to fans at Miller Park was limited to a single event at The Team Store by Majestic in late March.

Hank’s return to the spotlight is scheduled for this Wednesday during the 5th inning of the Brewers vs. Pirates game. For one inning, he will appear on the Field Level Concourse in the right-field corner. Fans are welcome to visit and take photos of Milwaukee’s famous four-legger as he lounges with the recently-debuted “Hank House.”

Fans will have an opportunity to make a voluntary donation to the Wisconsin Humane Society during Hank’s appearance.

The entire series will feature “Spring Madness (414)” deals, with 50% off select tickets, $4 domestic draft, 16-ounce beers, $1 hot dogs and sodas, and $4 nachos.

For more information, please visit brewers.com/madness or call 414-902-4000.

Behind the Scenes at the Brewers Pet Calendar Photo Shoot

Last week, we let the “cat out of the bag” that we’re creating a Brewers Pet Calendar, featuring photos of the players and coaches with their pets and/or animals from the Wisconsin Humane Society, with a portion of the proceeds benefiting the organization.

Today, we held the first photo shoot for the piece, which is due out later this season, and we thought we’d share a few fun photos with you. All photos for the calendar will be taken by Brewers photographer Scott Paulus[Note: All of the dogs at today's photo shoot are dogs that are currently up for adoption at the Wisconsin Humane Society.]

We also held a contest for one lucky fan and his/her dog to be included in the calendar alongside Hank. Stay tuned for more details on the winner and when the finished piece will be for sale.

Cheers!

Everyone Loves Hank: #BallparkPup Transcends Team Allegiances

As Brewers fans, you know the heartwarming “tail” well by now.

Hank, the little stray pup who wandered into Brewers Spring Training Camp in Phoenix, Arizona, on February 17, the day of the first workout for pitchers and catchers, quickly captured the hearts of Brewers fans, as well as pet-lovers across the world.

Hank’s story has blurred the lines of team allegiance, with fans of other teams tuning in for updates on the pup. And his story has even transcended the sport itself. We can’t tell you how many comments and letters we’ve received from people who say they don’t even follow baseball, but they love dogs, or pets in general, and can’t help but follow Hank.

Even players from other teams have fallen for Hank, as Diamondbacks pitcher Brandon McCarthy tweeted this during Spring Training:

And Brandon has continued to follow Hank’s story into the season:

McCarthy Tweet

Brandon and his wife, Amanda, are dog lovers and have a 6-year-old Westie, a small white pup of their own, named Hobbes:

We can see a resemblance to Hank and why his story has caught their attention.

A series of tweets was exchanged between Brandon, Amanda and the Club…

Which led to arranging a meeting between Brandon and Hank today before batting practice at Miller Park:

“This dog is awesome. I get to meet a dog on the road, which is great anytime you have to leave your dog at home. There should be more dogs on the road, more dogs in public to play with, so having one on a baseball field combines some of my favorite things,” Brandon said.

Watch the full interview, here:

Yes, it was clear that Brandon and Hank enjoyed each other’s company, but don’t worry Brewers fans, it is clear where Hank’s allegiance rests.

Home Away From Home: The “Hank House” to Debut at Miller Park Today

Hank, the “Ballpark Pup,” is getting a home at Miller Park.  The “Hank House,” a roomy, one bedroom Cape Cod-style dwelling, debuted today as the Crew opens a six-game homestand against the San Diego Padres at 7:10 p.m.

As you can see, the “Hank House” features a mini-slide and the #BallparkPup hashtag.

It will be positioned at “The Point” in centerfield for tonight’s game and as a mobile home, it will move around the ballpark throughout the season.  When Hank is at Miller Park, it will be his home and used for photo opportunities and appearances.

We think he likes it!

Brew Crew Bracketology: Brewers March Madness Update

Back in Spring Training when the NCAA tournament got underway, we asked some of the Crew to fill out brackets.

Now we’re down to the Final Four (On Wisconsin!), so we thought we’d post the updated brackets here so you can follow along with Brew Crew Bracketology below and see how their picks are “netting” out.

As you can see, even Hank and Bernie Brewer got in on the fun and Bernie has even correctly picked 3 of the Final Four! He’s got Wisconsin in the National Championship game, so let’s hope he’s right!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

If you’ll notice, I filled out a bracket, too. Although I’m a Marquette girl and I’m bummed they aren’t in it,  I am cheering Wisconsin on loudly and I really do love the excitement of this time of year–both on the basketball and baseball fronts.

Bracket busted? Never fear. Brewers season is underway!

Cheers,
