Win Tickets to the First Public Screening of the Selig Experience

The much-anticipated Selig Experience will open to the public on Friday, May 29 when the Brewers begin a three-game series against the Diamondbacks. Throughout this week, 15 pairs of tickets to the May 29 game – including the first public screening of the Selig Experience at 5 p.m. – will be given away as prizes via @Brewers on Twitter. Fans have the opportunity to win the tickets by following @Brewers on Twitter beginning today through Friday, May 22. Prizes will be given away via retweet contests and also through Twitter Trivia during Brewers games this week.

(Note: Friday, May 29 is also the date of our first  of 2015. That means if you win, you’ll get to see the Selig Experience, the Brewers vs. Diamondbacks game and a Joe Nichols concert!)

Located on Miller Park’s Loge Level in the left-field corner, the Selig Experience will be open to the general public during all Brewers home games, from the time that gates open until the 7th inning. Admission is free for those with tickets to the game, and will be on a first-come, first-served basis. The attraction will also be open to selected tour groups.

A highlight of the attraction is a multimedia presentation that tells the story of Selig’s role in successfully bringing the Brewers to Milwaukee, saving Major League Baseball in the city with his commitment to build Miller Park, and his tireless efforts to promote and grow the game in his hometown.

Broxton and Smith Visit with Brewers Season Seat Holders

Today was the Brewers Season Seat Holder luncheon, the first of two such events this season where Season Seat Holders with packages of 20+ games have the opportunity to attend.

The event, which took place in the Skyy Lounge, included a plated lunch, a Q &A with Brewers players, and the opportunity to win prizes.

Today, Season Seat Holders were treated to a Q & A with Brewers relievers Jonathan Broxton and Will Smith.

Jonathan Broxton and will Smith were the special guests at today's SSH Luncheon.

Jonathan Broxton and will Smith were the special guests at today’s SSH Luncheon.

Here are some highlights:

When asked what the guys talk about in the bullpen during the game, Will Smith said, “Stuff…. No, we have a pretty good group down there, so for the first five innings, we’ll cut up and goof around and pick on each other, but once the fifth inning rolls around we cut it out.”

When asked how they respond to adversity, Jonathan Broxton responded:

“It’s tough because when you do blow a game, it sits hard on you. It sat hard on me last night, but you have to get the point where you can turn the page before you leave the clubhouse to be able to pitch the next day. That’s the great thing about being a reliever: We get a chance today to go out there and give it our best. “

When asked who the biggest prankster on the team is, Will Smith pointed to Jonathan Broxton and responded:

“This guy! Don’t you EVER turn your back on him.”

Will Smith points to Broxton as the biggest prankster on the team.

When asked what they do for fun outside of baseball, Will Smith said, “During the season I enjoy sleeping. In the offseason, I like to play golf… play video games. I’m a dork.”

As for Jonathan, he said, “During the offseason I like to do a lot of hunting and fishing, playing golf. I love the outdoors so I spend a lot of time in the outdoors. During the season, I’m more laid back….I try to enjoy my family while I can during the season because we are on the road so much. It gets hard on us.”

On the heels of Mother’s Day, Will Smith was asked if he had any stories about his mom and baseball and he said, “My mom is like your standard mom. She was interested in everything, even if you would do real bad. So one day I’m in, I had just been moved to the bullpen while in Triple-A with Kansas City, and I give up a home run and we lose the game and all this stuff. Obviously, I’m mad. I go back to the clubhouse and look at my phone, and I have a text from my mom. She’s like, ‘Good job, just leave your home run pitch at home next time!’ And you can’t be mad at your mom so I just threw my phone in my locker and said ‘I’m outta here!’”

Will Smith talked about his mom, Kay, at the event today.

Thanks to those who came out today, fun was had by all. And special thanks to my intern, Aaron Oberley, for his help on this post!

Cheers,

Davis, Gennett Visit J.F. Cooper School for Anti-Bullying Program; School Attends Game

Last week, we announced that after hundreds of essays were received, Kayla Jimenez of J.F. Cooper School was the winner of  the Brewers inaugural “Strike Out Bullying” contest. Students from all across the greater Milwaukee area were asked to submit a one-page essay about what their school is doing to “Strike Out Bullying.”

Kayla’s essay was selected and today, her school received the grand prize which included a visit from Brewers players Scooter Gennett and Khris Davis, alumni Davey Nelson and Larry Hisle, plus the Klement’s Famous Racing Sausages, as well as tickets and transportation to tonight’s game against the Chicago White Sox.

For her part, Kayla received a jersey and also threw out the ceremonial first pitch tonight:

Scooter promised Kayla he would catch her pitch and he fulfilled the promise.

"You did a lot better than I thought you would," Scooter jokingly told Kayla after her first pitch.

The essay was an open-ended question, “What is your school doing to strike out bullying?”  Kayla, a 12-year-old sixth grader, wrote about the many different approaches that J.F. Cooper School has helped prevent and end bullying.  She described a pledge that was handed out to every class and signed by any student who would not tolerate bullying.  In addition, students at the J.F. Cooper School created black and blue posters, representing the hardships that victims of bullying go through, and displayed them throughout the campus.
