HRI also loans tools to community organizations to do neighborhood clean-ups, beautification or maintenance projects. For more information about HRI and approved tools to donate, visit hri-wi.org. A list of approved tools for donation is provided below.
There will be two donation locations on the Miller Park Plaza – one near the Associated Check In Gate by the pedestrian bridge and one near Home Plate Gate. Donations will be accepted from 4:30 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.
“Because we want to support and empower homeowners to maintain their homes and improve the quality of life in our community, we are proud to partner with Brewers Community Foundation to support the HRI Tool Loan Center,” said Christopher Piotrowski, executive vice president and chief marketing officer at Associated Bank. “We encourage Brewer fans to donate new or gently used tools to this very worthy cause and help make a positive difference in Milwaukee neighborhoods.”

The Milwaukee Brewers and 620 WTMJ have agreed to extend their radio rights agreement and continue their longstanding partnership.
The announcement was made today by Brewers Chief Operating Officer Rick Schlesinger and Steve Wexler, Vice President/Radio, E.W. Scripps Company, which owns and operates WTMJ.
“The Milwaukee Brewers and WTMJ have one of the longest-standing partnerships in Major League Baseball, and today’s announcement continues a great tradition of bringing Milwaukee Brewers games and programming on radio to fans throughout Wisconsin,” Schlesinger said. “WTMJ is a heritage brand in Milwaukee, and they are committed to activating all of their resources to make this a terrific partnership with our organization.”
WTMJ-AM has served as the radio flagship of the Brewers for all but two seasons since the team moved to Milwaukee in 1970. The prior agreement carried through the 2016 season. No other terms of the new contract were disclosed.
“We’re big believers in localism at Scripps, and there are few things more local than Brewers baseball on WTMJ,” said Wexler. “We’re thrilled to continue this strong, mutually beneficial partnership with the Brewers”.
Tom Langmyer, Vice-President and General Manager of WTMJ said “in addition to WTMJ’s incredible footprint, we’re proud to continue operating the Brewers Radio Network so that Brewers baseball is available to fans in several states.”
WTMJ’s history as flagship radio station for the Brewers dates to 1970, when the team relocated from Seattle. This season, Hall-of-Famer Bob Uecker is in his 46th year as voice of the Brewers. He is joined in the booth by Jeff Levering (second year) and Lane Grindle (first season).
The historic Baseball Hall of Fame Tour (We Are Baseball) has made its way to Miller Park and is set to open to the public tomorrow (Friday, July 15) as the first-ever Major League city stop on its multi-year journey to dozens of cities across North America, bringing to fans a one-of-a-kind baseball experience through the illustrious history of the game with cutting-edge technology and digital media. Baseball fans in Milwaukee will be able to visit the one-of-a-kind mobile exhibit galleries in one of Miller Park’s parking lots through the end of the month.
Tickets are available now on the Tour’s official website, HallofFameTour.com.
We Are Baseball was developed with content provided by The National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum and through a partnership with IMAX Corporation, MLBAM, Boston Red Sox chairman Tom Werner, CAA, and United Talent Agency, along with Arny Granat and Grand Slam Productions.
Today I was fortunate enough to get a sneak peek of the Tour, so here are some highlights that Iwas excited to check out.
Central to the fan experience is a mobile IMAX theater showcasing an original IMAX film highlighting the past, present and future of baseball. The 12-minute film is very moving and features never-before-seen new content as well as historical footage.
To celebrate the shared experiences and bonds fans have for the sport, one-of-a-kind historical artifacts were curated by baseball historians and will be exhibited in unprecedented ways through state-of-the-art technology. This dynamic, customizable and sharable traveling exhibit will allow fans to “experience” the stories, traditions and stars covering baseball’s past and present like never before – from the game’s greatest luminaries, ranging from Honus Wagner to Willie Mays, Babe Ruth to Clayton Kershaw, and personalities and moments, like world renowned broadcaster Harry Caray or Bill Mazeroski’s legendary World Series-winning home run, to Fenway Park’s famed “Green Monster.” Examples include:
- History Selfie: Put yourself into some of baseball’s most iconic moments and share with your friends, family and followers via social media
- Hall of Fame Plaques in HD: Scroll through an interactive experience of the Hall of Fame plaques for every inductee
- Video Exhibit Cases: In a first-of-its-kind for baseball artifacts, utilize video screens to get the story behind a specific artifact before the artifact itself is revealed behind the screen.
- Personal Plaques: Using touch screen technology and high resolution cameras, take your own photo to create a personal Hall of Fame replica plaque and craft your own Hall of Fame story
- Interactive Games: An interactive touch screen table will allow you to play fun games against your family, friends and other We Are Baseball visitors
- Mobile: Leveraging MLBAM’s mobile development and technology expertise, the Tour also will integrate iBeacon technology for location awareness into the experiences for fans with the free MLB.com Ballpark app.
The Tour partnered with pioneering virtual reality (VR) company Jaunt to give fans up close and personal experiences of being present next to the game’s brightest stars, on field, in the dugout and even in the clubhouse. Shot over a series of weeks and available only as part of the Tour, Jaunt captured footage at Spring Training camps for the Chicago Cubs, Los Angeles Angels, Los Angeles Dodgers, and Oakland A’s. They were also on field for the Boston Red Sox Fenway Park and Chicago Cubs Wrigley Field home openers and documented the ring ceremony for the 2015 World Series Champion Kansas City Royals.
In partnership with the inaugural Hall of Fame Tour, Fanatics, the global leader in licensed sports apparel and official MLB digital commerce partner, will operate a pop-up retail store and provide a wide range of officially licensed gear and customized products for each city stop. Local fans will have the ability to shop a wide selection of Hall of Fame Tour merchandise and Baseball Hall of Fame throwback designs, while also sifting through city-by-city Cooperstown memorabilia and collectibles. Fans unable to visit in person will be able to showcase their passion and pride by shopping all Hall of Fame Tour merchandise online.
Along with Milwaukee, We Are Baseball will travel to five other cities in its first four months of operation in 2016, providing fans in those communities nearly 1,000 open hours of access to the exhibits, artifacts and immersive experiences provided from the vast collections of The National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in Cooperstown, N.Y. A detailed schedule for 2016 is below:

Fans who purchase the special ‘90s Night ticket package will also receive this limited-edition ‘90s-themed Will Smith player T-shirt, which is inspired by the popular ’90s TV Show, “The Fresh Prince,” which stars the actor Will Smith.
Speaking of which, in case you missed it, recently pitcher Will Smith and his bullpen mates have extended a video invitation to the actor in hopes of getting him to attend the game, but so far, they have not heard back.
And that brings us to the latest effort in support of the #WillMeetsWill campaign–Will Smith and Jeremy Jeffress (with the help of Brewers Team Photographer Scott Paulus) have recreated photos of Will Smith and DJ Jazzy Jeff, who formed the famous hip hop duo that was popular in the late ’80s and the ’90s, producing such hits together as “Summertime,” and “Parents Just Don’t Understand.”
Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you: Will Smith and DJ Jazzy Jeffress:
Will also got in the Fresh Prince spirit:
As you can imagine, these two BFFs had a blast during this shoot. Here’s a look at some behind-the-scenes footage:
Tickets for the event are $19 for Terrace Reserved or $39 for Loge Outfield Box, not including inflation! Get yours at brewers.com/themenights.
