Congrats to the #BrewersOnDeck Winners!

Thank you to the nearly 12,000 fans who streamed through the doors of the Wisconsin Center on Sunday, January 31!

From autographs, photographs and interviews to game shows, merchandise and kids activities there was something for everyone and so much going on it was almost dizzying at times.

For me personally, it was a ton of fun working over at the Social Media Stage. I asked you to stop by, check it out and say hello and you did! We had some great crowds and I enjoyed meeting a lot of my Twitter buddies in person.

 

In case you missed my recaps last week, be sure to check out Photobombs with Jimmy Nelson, Martin Maldonado and Taylor Jungmann; the #BrewersPhone with Tyler Thornburg and Gorman Thomas; highlights from the #AskMaverick Twitter Q&A with Brett Phillips; a rundown on Heads Up! with Michael Blazek and Corey Knebel; and of course, the Lip Sync Battle between Will Smith and Jeremy Jeffress.

And thank YOU for submitting your photos on Twitter & Instagram using #BrewersOnDeck! The contest ended yesterday and we’ve selected our winners!

Congrats to Laura and Holly, who won autographed baseballs and Brewers prize packs:

Corey Knebel & Michael Blazek Play Heads Up! With Fans

Fans had the chance to play the game Heads Up! (An app made popular by The Ellen Show) with Brewers pitchers Michael Blazek and Corey Knebel over at the Social Media Stage yesterday.

For those of you who aren’t familiar with the game, it is similar to a charades or Catchphrase. It’s simply a word guessing game where your friends try to get you to say the word on the screen by giving you hints. Only with Heads Up, you hold the phone above your head and it records video of your friend giving hints. You have sixty seconds to guess as many words as you can.

Michael and Corey played against each other for a couple rounds to warm up and get familiar with the game. Corey had never heard of the game before and thought he was going to play the old kid’s game Heads Up 7-Up on stage instead.

“That’s what I’m working with here,” Michael said, playfully jabbing at Corey.

They picked the category Blockbuster Movies and neither of them fared too well, but when the category switched over to Brewers Baseball, a custom category we designed for Brewers On Deck, the guys performed much better.

We invited this pair of fans up on stage to take on the pair.

After that, the guys tried to guess the clues from the crowd:

Corey Knebel

Thanks again to Michael and Corey and all of the fans who participated in this segment at the Social Media Stage! I know it was at the very end of the day, so I appreciate y’all sticking around!

P.S.-This game is a really fun, easy party game and it’s only $.99 to download the basic version! You can then add on different decks and even create your own, like we did for this segment. Personally recommend!

Tyler Thornburg & Gorman Thomas Take Over Fans’ Phones with #BrewersPhone

Another fun addition to the Social Media Stage at Brewers On Deck this year was the #BrewersPhone Wheel.

Fans were invited to come on stage and give the wheel a spin for the chance to have Tyler Thornburg and Gorman Thomas take over their smartphones.

#BrewersPhone at Brewers On Deck

The duo took over fans’ Snapchat and Twitter accounts, made fans change their profile pictures, sent text messages, recorded new voice greetings and even made some phone calls to fans back home while live on stage.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Let’s take a look at some examples.

Here’s a text that Tyler sent:

#BrewersPhone

This fan’s new Twitter profile photo is looking pretty sharp:

Speaking of Twitter, here’s a tweet Tyler sent from this fan’s account:

Here they are re-recording a fan’s outgoing voicemail message:

Thanks for the voicemail greeting, @tylerthornburg37! #BrewersOnDeck #BrewersPhone

A video posted by Amanda Westphal (@awestphal4) on

Looks like the phone call was a hit!

I wish we could have gotten copies of the outgoing voicemail recordings those guys left because they’re hilarious. Maybe the fans reading this will let me call them so I can take another listen-send me a tweet @CMoyer, please, or leave a comment below and I’ll contact ya!

Thanks again to Tyler and Gorman for being such great sports and having fun with the fans at our stage!

Epic Lip Sync Battle Breaks Out at Brewers On Deck

Thank you to the 11,763 fans who came out to Brewers On Deck at the Wisconsin Center in downtown Milwaukee today!

There were so many stages and events going on all day long that it was impossible to cover it all from a social media standpoint–especially considering that we had our hands full at the Social Media Stage.

This year we pulled out all the stops, including Photo Bombs (with Jimmy Nelson and then Martin Maldonado & Taylor Jungmann), a #BrewersPhone takeover with Tyler Thornburg & Gorman Thomas, Twitter Q&A with  Top OF prospect Brett Phillips, a game of Heads Up! with Michael Blazek & Corey Knebel and, last but certainly not least, a much-hyped lip sync battle between Will Smith and Jeremy Jeffress.

This outgoing dynamic duo each chose their songs in advance and performed them in front of the audience at our stage this afternoon.

In round 1, JJ led off with “Where Are U Now” by Justin Bieber and Will followed that up with Whitney Houston’s “I Will Always Love You.” 

In round 2, JJ “sang” “Ain’t Too Proud to Beg” by the Temptations and Will answered with “P.Y.T.” by Michael Jackson.

For the tiebreaker round, we chose the song…. The guys each had to do their best version of Adele’s “Hello.” 

The winner was decided on by the cheers of the crowds. Admittedly it was a VERY close competition. JJ’s got mad dance moves and Will’s humor/”singing” really got the audience riled up.

Alas, we had to choose a winner and Will Smith was dubbed the 2016 #BrewersOnDeck Lip Sync Battle Winner.

For his prize, Will went home with a copy of “I Will Always Love You,” Whitney Houston’s Greatest Hits CD and he also won an Adele shirt. However, he had the choice of wearing it for the rest of the day, or making JJ wear it instead.

Here’s what he chose:

Jeffress

Don’t worry folks, we didn’t leave JJ hangin’. He left with the parting gift of a Justin Bieber plush throw.

For those of you interested in watching a rough previously live streamed version of the full battle, you have until about 2pm CT on Monday to view the Periscope Broadcast here.

Time for me to sign off for tonight, but we’ll have more Brewers On Deck recap coverage, probably all week long. There was just that much great content.

Also: Speaking of content, don’t forget to share yours with us! Be sure to upload your photos from today’s event to Twitter and/or Instagram using the hashtag #BrewersOnDeck. We’ll select some winners to win a trip down Bernie’s slide, tickets and more!

I don’t know about you, but this event really has me pumped up for baseball season. April 4 can’t come soon enough. 64 days!

Cheers!

During the event, the Brewers will unveil a new book – Explore MKE: Your Neighborhood Our City. The Book is published by SHARP Literacy, Inc. and is sponsored by Brewers Community Foundation and Ryan Braun.  It tells the story of two children who share their differing experiences of Milwaukee and are attempting to figure out how they fit in.  It also features informational sections that weave together iconic Milwaukee institutions and neighborhood-based landmarks with important themes in common.

Explore MKE

SHARP Literacy, Inc. is a non-profit organization that enhances future life success by energizing urban children and motivating them to identify themselves as confident, capable scholars and lifelong learners by inspiring engagement in reading, writing and research through hands on interaction and visual arts.

Details regarding autographs include the following:  Recipients of “PREMIER” autographs (players to be announced next week) will be chosen through a random selection process. Each fan in attendance will receive one Premier Entry sheet which may be redeemed at the Random Selection area outside the Main Exhibit Hall of the Wisconsin Center.  The Premier Entry sheet will be exchanged for a numbered coupon to be entered into the random selection process for any one of the select Brewers players.  Coupon distribution will be available at 8 a.m. the day of the event and will continue up to an hour before each designated autograph session.   There is no cost for coupons to enter the random selection process; however, those holding winning coupons must pay $25 at the respective autograph stage to collect their player signature.  There will be 250 winners for each of the autograph sessions.  The winning ticket numbers will be posted at the designated autograph stage no less than 30 minutes prior to each player’s session.

Players and staff not included in the PREMIER autograph list will not use the random selection process. Each of these players will sign 250 autographs at prices ranging from free to $10. A schedule of players, their session times, and distribution info will be posted at a later date.  The autograph opportunities are for signatures on photo cards provided by the team; the Brewers cannot guarantee that any player will sign other memorabilia.  For additional information, visit Brewers.com/ondeck.

Autograph proceeds benefit Brewers Community Foundation.  Please note that cash is the only acceptable form of payment for autographs. The Brewers cannot guarantee that any player will sign other memorabilia, and personalization of items is solely up to the discretion of each player.

A detailed schedule of all Brewers On Deck activities will be released at a later date, so stay tuned!
