Sunday, September 15: Ben Oglivie Bobblehead Day sponosored by Waukesha Metal Products

And last, but certainly not least….. our tenth and final bobblehead of the 2013 season will be a Ben Oglivie bobblehead on Sunday, September 15 as the Crew takes on the Cincinnati Reds at Miller Park.

Ben Oglivie was a Brewers outfielder from 1978-1986. Like Gorman Thomas (who was also announced as a 2013 bobblehead yesterday), Ben was a member of the 1982 AL Championship team under Manager Harvey Kuenn (another 2013 bobblemate!) and one of Harvey’s Wallbangers.

This is the first full-size Brewers bobblehead of the three-time Brewers All-Star (1980, 1981 & 1982) that we’ve given out at Miller Park.

Individual tickets go on sale in February, but you can secure yours early! The Ben Oglivie bobblehead is included in the following ticket packages:

20-Game Sunday Plus Plan  

4-Pack Double Bobble Plan [Holiday 4-Packs go on sale on Tuesday, November 13! Call (414) 902-HITS (4487) for details!]

And…that’s a wrap! Stay tuned to the blog for more updates—including photos of the bobbleheads–as we get them!

Sunday, September 1: Gorman Thomas Bobblehead Day Presented by the Wisconsin National Guard

Yesterday, we announced Harvey Kuenn as one of the 2013 bobbleheads and today, we’re pleased to announce our ninth bobblehead of 2013, one of Harvey’s Wallbangers…. GORMAN THOMAS!

Yes, you’ll want to make sure to get your tickets to the Sunday, September 1, Brewers vs. Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim as all fans in attendance will receive a bobblehead of “Stormin’ Gorman” himself.

Gorman was the first player selected by the Seattle Pilots in the June 1969 draft and as such, he’ll be featured in a Seattle Pilots uniform.

During his career, the former outfielder played with Milwaukee Brewers (1973–76, 1978–83, 1986), Cleveland Indians (1983) and Seattle Mariners (1984–86).

From 1978-1983, Gorman hit more home runs than any other player in the American League.

This is the second full-size Gorman Thomas Bobblehead given away at Miller Park (the first was in 2004).

Individual tickets will go on sale in February, but you can secure your tickets early as the Gorman Thomas bobblehead is included in the following ticket packages:

20-Game Sunday Plus Plan

On Sunday, August 4, the Brewers take on the Washington Nationals at Miller Park and all fans in attendance will receive a bobblehead of former Brewers manager and Wisconsin native, Harvey Kuenn courtesy of Kapco Metal Stamping.

Kuenn became a Milwaukee Brewers coach in 1972, served as an interim manager in 1975 and, in 1982, was named AL Manager of the Year after managing the team to the World Series.

During his tenure, the hard-hitting Brewers team, filled with legends like Cecil Cooper, Ben Oglivie, Ted Simmons, Gorman Thomas, and future Hall-of-Famers Paul Molitor and Robin Yount, were known as Harvey’s Wallbangers.

Sunday, July 7: Hank Aaron Bobblehead Day presented by U.S. Cellular

Last week, we announced that one of our 2013 bobbleheads is a Ryan Braun 40-30 bobble and this week, we’re following up on that with a bobblehead of the only other 40-30 player in our history—Hank Aaron.

In 1963, as a member of the Milwaukee Braves, Hank became the first MLB player to hit over 40 home runs and steal 30 bases in a single season. He finished that year with 44 home runs and 31 stolen bases.

We’ll be featuring Hank in a Milwaukee Braves uniform for this special 40-30 bobblehead and you’ll want to be in attendance on Sunday, July 7 when the Crew takes on the New York Mets to score yours.

For those keeping score at home, this will be the third Hank Aaron bobblehead that we’ve given away at Miller Park. The first was in 2002 and then in 2010, we celebrated the 40th Anniversary of Brewers Baseball with bobbleheads from various decades and Hank was our honoree from the 1970s. Don’t miss out on the chance to add this one to your collection!

 The Hank Aaron bobblehead is also included in the following ticket packages:

You’ll definitely want to make plans to come out to Miller Park on Sunday, May 26 as the Crew takes on the Pittsburgh Pirates for Ryan Braun bobblehead day presented by the Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board!

This is the third Brewers bobblehead for Ryan Braun. Previously, we gave away a regular bobblehead (2008) and one honoring Ryan’s home run that helped us clinch the Wild Card in 2008 (2009). The 2012 Ryan Braun bobblehead will honor Ryan Braun’s 40/30 season in 2013.

This past season, Ryan followed up his 2011 MVP season by hitting 41 home runs and stealing 30 bases to become just the 9th member of MLB’s 40/30 club.

Ryan has also been honored with bobbleheads from the Helena Brewers (2008), the Huntsville Stars (2008) and the Nashville Sounds (2009).

Sunday, May 5: Corey Hart Bobblehead Day presented by Kwik Trip

The third bobblehead of the 2013 season will come on Sunday, May 5 as the Brewers take on the St. Louis Cardinals. The bobblehead will feature Brewers first baseman Corey Hart in a 1913 Brewers uniform and is presented by Kwik Trip.

Wait a minute, you say, the Brewers, formerly the Seattle Pilots, didn’t come to Milwaukee until 1970….

Yes, that’s correct, but there was a Minor League team called the Milwaukee Brewers who played in the American Association for 50 years, from 1902-1952, the team that became the eventual namesake for our beloved Crew!

The Brewers won their first American Association championship in 1913 and repeated the next year.  All told the American Association Brewers won eight pennants in their fifty-one seasons.

Thus, we’ll honor the 100th anniversary American Association Brewers on May 5 with this Corey Hart bobblehead.

This is the second Brewers bobblehead for Corey Hart; the Nashville Sounds also honored Corey with a bobblehead this past season.

Individual tickets will go on sale in February, but if you want to secure your tickets early, Corey’s bobblehead is included in the following ticket packages:
