In advance of his June 12 All-Fan Bobblehead giveaway, this morning Hank, “The Ballpark Pup,” has helped distribute thousands of Barking BobbleHank Bobbleheads across the greater Milwaukee area and select other locations in Wisconsin in a scavenger hunt called, “Hank and Seek.” The scavenger hunt will culminate in an appearance by Hank at the Brewers Team Store by Majestic at 10 a.m Friday.
Thousands of Barking BobbleHanks (the Bobblehead has a soundchip that barks) have been placed next to Hank’s favorite locations – fire hydrants and trees – throughout the greater Milwaukee area and select additional locations in Wisconsin. There is a sticker attached to the box instructing those who find the Bobbleheads to share a photo of their newly-acquired Barking Bobblehank on Instagram or Twitter by tagging @Brewers and using #HankandSeekto be eligible for exciting prizes, including pizza for a year, courtesy of Palermo’s Frozen Pizza, game tickets to the June 12 matchup with the New York Mets and a one-on-one meet and greet with Hank himself.
Please note: There is a limit of one Bobblehead per person. The scavenger hunt will continue until all items have been claimed. More details and official rules can be found at brewers.com/hankandseek.

Did you follow along with our Brewers #20in15 All-Fan Giveaways reveal last week?
In case you missed it, in 2015, we have slated a team-record 20 All-Fan Giveaway dates throughout the season.
There are 10 Sundays when every fan in attendance will receive a bobblehead featuring different Brewers personnel, two Sundays when all fans in attendance will receive Brewers gnomes for the first time ever, seven T-Shirt Friday dates (and you get to help choose the designs!) and one date where you will help determine the giveaway.
“Through surveys and various feedback forums, we know that our ‘All Fan Giveaways’ are one of the most popular added values that we offer at Miller Park,” said Brewers Chief Operating Officer Rick Schlesinger. “With that in mind, we are excited to be presenting a team-record 20 of these dates in 2015, which include not only Bobbleheads and t-shirts, but also the new Gnome items.”
In case you missed it, the #20in15 All-Fan Giveaways lineup is as follows:
The All Fan Giveaways start with the Rob Deer Bobblehead presented by Toyota on April 12 when the Brewers host the Pittsburgh Pirates at 1:10 p.m. This is the first Bobblehead for the former Brewers great, who spent five seasons with the Club and hit 137 home runs, while racking up 385 RBI.
All fans in attendance for the April 26, 1:10 p.m. game against the St. Louis Cardinals will receive a Wily Peralta Bobblehead, presented by U.S. Cellular. The Brewers 2014 Most Valuable Pitcher of the Year, this will be the first-ever Bobblehead of Perralta. Peralta notched career-highs with 17 wins and 154 strikeouts, which also led the team.
Helping celebrate Mother’s Day, “Hank the Ballpark Pup” will receive his second Bobblehead on May 10, when the Brewers host the Chicago Cubs at 1:10 p.m. Hank will be adorned in pink in honor of the holiday.
To commemorate his upcoming retirement, Commissioner Bud Selig will be recognized with a Bobblehead on May 31 when Milwaukee takes on the Arizona Diamondbacks at 1:10 p.m. Earlier this year, the team announced that they will retire uniform number one in 2015, in honor of Selig for his commitment to keep Major League Baseball in Milwaukee.
On June 14, all fans who attend the 1:10 p.m. game against the Washington Nationals will receive a Carlos Gomez Bobblehead. Gomez will be dressed in his 2014 National League All-Star jersey, celebrating his second consecutive All-Star nod.
On June 28, former Brewers great Paul Molitor will have his Bobblehead day. The Hall of Famer played 15 seasons in a Brewers uniform and appeared in over 1,800 games.
The next month on July 19, outfielder Khris Davis, who belted 22 homers in 2014, will be recognized with a Bobblehead giveaway as the Brewers host the Pirates
The Brewers will introduce a new promotion for the 1:10 p.m., August 2 game against the Chicago Cubs as all fans in attendance will receive a Matt Garza Gnome. This will mark the first of two gnomes that will be given away in 2015.
To recognize his 60th year in baseball, the Hall of Fame broadcaster Bob Uecker will have a Bobblehead day on August 9 when the Brewers host the St. Louis Cardinals at 1:10 p.m. The Bobblehead will be modeled after the statue that was unveiled last year in Uecker’s favorite spot – the last row of Miller Park.
The Brewers will recognize catcher Jonathan Lucroy and his record-breaking season with a Bobblehead on the August 16, 1:10 p.m. game against the Phillies. Lucroy finished the 2014 season with 53 doubles and 46 as a catcher. His 53 doubles matched a Brewers team record, while his 46 as a catcher set a new Major League record.
The Brewers will once again give away a “Vintage Brewers Bobblehead” on August 30 when the team takes on the Cincinnati Reds at 1:10 p.m. The Bobblehead is a nod to the past as it will be a replica of some of the first items of this kind created nearly 50 years ago. This year’s Vintage Brewer Bobblehead will be donning a Brewers retro jersey.
Scooter Gennett will join Matt Garza as the second player in 2015 to be honored with a Brewers Gnome giveaway. Gennett has hit for a combined .300 average in his first two seasons with the Brewers.
Finally, fans will decide the “All Fan Giveaway” item to be given away at the Sunday, October 4 (1:10 p.m.) season finale against the Chicago Cubs. An online vote will be conducted later to determine the giveaway.
For the second year in a row, “T-shirt Fridays” will return to Miller Park for 2015. On Friday home games during the months of June, July and August (June 12, June 26, July 17, July 31, August 7, August 14 and August 28), all-fans will receive a Brewers T-shirt. New this season, fans will have the opportunity to choose each of the seven T-shirt designs to be given away this season.
Beginning in January, several different T-shirt designs will be displayed at Brewers.com. Fans will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite designs, with the top seven winners being selected for “T-shirt Fridays.” The seven winners will be unveiled at Brewers On Deck on Sunday, January 25.
While individual tickets won’t go on sale until early next year, you can still lock in your favorite giveaways with Season Ticket Packages.
The complete promotional schedule for the 2015 season will be announced at a later date. For more information about All-Fan Giveaways and information on various ticket plans, fans are encouraged to visit Brewers.com/allfans.

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.”
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.
Fans attending tonight’s game can now take Hank to the beach.
Okay, maybe not literally like these gals did, but all fans attending tonight’s game versus the Giants received a full-size Hank Beach Towel, compliments of Meijer.
In addition, Hank (and his Hank House) were available for a photo opportunity for the first 500 fans in line beginning when the gates opened:
And even opposing teams can’t resist Hank’s charms: San Francisco Giants Manager Bruce Bochy also requested to meet our famous Ballpark Pup:
With the September 13 “BobbleHank” game now limited to single seats and standing room only tickets, fans of Hank, “The Ballpark Pup,” can still get in on the fun as today we announced another promotion celebrating the team’s famous four-legger.
On Wednesday, August 6, all fans attending the Brewers versus Giants game at 7:10 pm will receive a full-size Hank Beach Towel, compliments of Meijer.
In addition, Hank (and his Hank House) will be available for a photo opportunity with the first 500 fans in line beginning when gates open that night (90 minutes before first pitch). The photo opportunity will take place on the Field Level concourse near the Right Field Gate entrance.
“Based on the fan response, the BobbleHank giveaway was easily one of our most popular promotions ever, and when the game quickly reached standing room only status, there were a lot of fans who were disappointed,” said Brewers Chief Operating Officer Rick Schlesinger. “We expect that the Beach Towel giveaway will be just as popular, and with Hank appearing at both of these games, it promises to be a fun evening at Miller Park for everyone.”
Tickets for the Hank Beach Towel night and all remaining Brewers games are on sale at the Miller Park Box Office, through brewers.com, or by phone at (414-902-4000).
Have you signed up to run the Brewers Mini-Marathon or 10k this year? If not, there is still time!
If you’ve already committed, we hope your training is going well!
Whether you’re participating in the race, or you’ve thought about it, but don’t have the chance or the stamina this year, you can still participate in another race–the race to wipe out childhood cancer and related blood disorders—one child at a time as the fundraising efforts for the event benefit the MACC Fund (Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Cancer).
Over the past two years, the Brewers Mini + 10K has raised over $145,000 for the MACC Fund by participants in this event. With your help, we can push that number even higher.
And because incentives are helpful not only in racing, but also in fundraising, new for 2014, Brewers Enterprises has a great new one to keep you motivated:
Raise a minimum of $40 and receive a limited edition bobble head of Hank the Ballpark Pup sporting his Brewers Mini-Marathon + 10K gear! Hank is one of the newest and most beloved members of the Brewers team after being found and adopted at Spring Training this year.
Hank first appeared at camp on February 17, the day of the first workout for pitchers and catchers. The Brewers have worked closely with the Arizona and Wisconsin Humane Societies since that first day, and their staff provided counsel on how best to care for Hank’s basic needs as he adjusted to his new surroundings. Hank’s circle of caregivers in Phoenix worked tirelessly to ensure that he had the best care possible until his “forever home” was determined.
Hank made frequent appearances at Spring Training games in a concourse booth, where fans lined up for an opportunity to have their photo taken with Hank in exchange for a voluntary donation to the Humane Society. Through these and other opportunities, Hank has already helped raise thousands of dollars to support the cause.
Hank arrived in Milwaukee in mid-March on a Southwest Airlines charter flight and, although he has been adopted by a staff member at the Club, he has made several appearances at Miller Park and other events. Hank merchandise (sales from which benefit the Wisconsin Humane Society) continues to fly off the shelves and tickets for a Wisconsin Humane Society Day featuring a BobbleHank giveaway are virtually sold out.
That’s one more reason why you’ll want to sign up for the race and help fundraise for this important cause. But you’ll have to act fast. These Hank bobbleheads are limited and available to only the first 2,750 race participants who raise $40 or more. Only one bobble head per race participant, given for raising/donating a minimum of $40. All funds raised benefit the MACC Fund.
Individual fundraisers will also have the chance to get their name entered in a raffle for great prizes. The top three individuals or groups will win a special prize.
Prizes include everything from autographed baseballs and a game-used bat to a trip down Bernie’s slide and a party at Helfaer Field. For a full list of prizes, click here.
If you’re running the race and have already started fundraising, that’s great! Please know your support and efforts are much appreciated We’d also like to hear from you–what’s been working? Have you tried campaign emails or letters? How about a fundraising party, teaming up with others, or getting creative? Garage sales, bake sales and car washes are some easy and fun ideas to help boost your total.
So there you have it. On Saturday, September 20, we all have two common goals–to finish the race strong and to help support this important cause.
You’re already online,so just click here to start your fundraising efforts right away!
In response to overwhelming popular demand, earlier this season we announced that we were adding a 15th all-fan giveaway to the schedule in 2014: a BobbleHank.
Hank, the “Ballpark Pup,” will be featured as a ninth Bobblehead to be given away to all-fans as part of a Wisconsin Humane Society Day on Saturday, September 13 at Miller Park. The Brewers take on the Cincinnati Reds that evening at 6:10 pm.
And, we’ve got a sneak peek at an early rendering of the bobble for you here:
The “Bobblehank” game is essentially sold out. We only have limited standing room and obstructed view tickets available through Brewers.com, at the Miller Park Box Office, and by calling 414-902-4000.
A portion of the proceeds from tickets sales for that game will be donated by the Brewers 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 also will contribute to the fund.
The team, in cooperation with the Wisconsin Humane Society, will sponsor numerous initiatives that evening, including an Adopt-a-Pet event on the Miller Park concourse where fans can meet four-legged friends available for adoption. In addition, all weekend long fans are encouraged by Brewers Community Foundation to bring new pet supplies that will be distributed to area rescue organizations as part of the “Drive for Charity.” Items that will be collected include canned or dry puppy, cat and kitten food; dog and cat toys (no stuffed toys, please); dog and cat treats; dog harnesses; cat litter; stainless steel food and water bowls. Those donating will receive a special commemorative pin with Hank’s likeness to mark the occasion.
