August Bobble of the Month

Last season, the Brewers Team Store released limited edition bobbleheads available for fans to purchase.

These bobbleheads were such a hit that they’re selling them again. The 2015 Mascot Bobble of the Month Series features seven bobbles, with one new bobble being released each month, March – September.

The August Bobble of the Month are available beginning today at the Brewers Team Store at Miller Park.

August BOM

he sixth bobblehead in the series features Italian Sausage taking Hank the Ballpark Pup for a gondola ride and sharing a plateful of spaghetti! It retails for $99 and quantities are limited – only 250 will be produced – so you’ll want to hurry.

I’m also told these will be available at a later date on brewers.com–I’ll do my best to keep you posted!

The MLBPAA formed 30 committees, comprised of Alumni players with established relationships to each team. One player from each Major League team is chosen by the committees based on the passion desire and work ethic demonstrated both on and off the field. As the season draws to a close, fans, all alumni and active players will vote to select the final winner from the 30 team winners. The previous overall winners are David Eckstein (2005), Craig Biggio (2006, 2007), Grady Sizemore (2008), Albert Pujols (2009), Roy Halladay (2010), Torii Hunter (2011), Mike Trout (2012), Dustin Pedroia (2013) and Josh Harrison (2014).

These clinics impact more than 15,000 children each year, allowing them the unique opportunity to interact with and learn from players who have left a lasting impact on the game of baseball.

Brewers Walk-Up & Entrance Music: Updated 8/4/15

For players, the song they choose for their walk-up or entrance music is often an important decision. What brief part of a song is going to send a message to the fans—and what do I want that message to be? Do I keep the same song that I had last year? What’s the hit that is going to produce the most hits? Is it a superstitious thing, do I want fans to sing along, or do I just use my favorite song right now?

If you’re like me and you’re attuned to the tunes, you probably enjoy seeing this list each year—and updating your iPod playlists accordingly.

DID YOU KNOW? Make sure you download the free Ballpark App! In addition to check-in offers, ballpark maps, game updates and more, one of the really cool features is “Ballpark Music.” Like a song you hear? Check it out on Ballpark–and you can even download it right there! No Shazam necessary!

Craig Counsell Visits with Brewers Season Seat Holders

Today was the Brewers Season Seat Holder luncheon, the second 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 manager Craig Counsell.

Craig Counsell addresses Brewers Season Seat Holders at today's luncheon.

Craig Counsell addresses Brewers Season Seat Holders at today’s luncheon.

Here are some highlights:

Craig spoke about how great and supportive the Brewers fan base has been–through thick and thin. “Fans coming to the park means something. We know it means something in the kind of players we are going to eventually get. It does! The more fans that come to the park the better players we are going to get. That’s the cold, hard facts….When there are people in this park it is a great atmosphere and a great experience for everybody to play in.”

In talking about life experiences outside of baseball that have prepared him to be a manager, Craig said: “My life has been working in baseball. Look, to me and I think for a lot of you, one of the most powerful experience you have is parenting. When you’re managing young men there are times when methods that you use in parenting apply to managing young men. Discipline is part of it.”

Brewers SSH Luncheon

One Season Seat Holder asked if Craig had given any thought to giving Segura a day off and filling in at Shortstop himself and Craig replied, “I have given NO thought to that. That is very nice of you to say, but most of you saw me play that last year. You don’t really want me out there; I assure you of that. It wasn’t that pretty. It was time for me to stop playing. I loved it and you wish it could last forever.”

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,

The “Peralta’s High Heat Burger” from AJ Bombers

During each homestand, I’ll sample some of the latest and greatest Miller Park fare and review it here, for you.

One of my favorite spots at Miller Park continues to be AJ Bombers. The popular restaurant and bar-with locations in Milwaukee and Madison- occupies the outside space formerly known as the Plaza Pavilion, along the west side of Miller Park near the right-field gate.

AJ Bombers offers a selection of cheeseburgers, egg rolls, tater tots, shakes, custards, specialty concrete mixers and more. The menu also include homestand specials, such as the city-themed concrete mixers as well as monthly player burger features.

THE PERALTA’S HIGH HEAT BURGER-$9

Making its debut tonight is the “Peralta’s High Heat Burger,” a special burger named after Brewers pitcher Wily Peralta.

Wily’s burger is a concoction with a little heat. It includes a single patty cheeseburger topped with pepper jack cheese, peppadew peppers, banana peppers, lettuce, tomato and mayo. It is available exclusively at Miller Park for the month of August, so you’ll want to be sure to try it out soon.

In addition, AJ Bombers continues to offer special concrete custard concoctions by series. Here’s a look at what’s on deck for August here exclusively at Miller Park:
