82-yr-old World Series Champ Mantilla Takes 10-yr-old Little Leaguers to Puerto Rico

On Thursday, fourteen Milwaukee-based Little Leaguers (ages 9-10) traveled to Puerto Rico to play tournament ball and, more importantly, to engage in educational and cultural experiences (including visits to the rain forest, the ocean, caves, Old San Juan and more.)  They will spend four days on the island, and in 2017, players and chaperones will travel from Puerto Rico to Milwaukee for a similar baseball and educational experiences.

Group at MKE airport

This first-of-its-kind program was conceived by family and friends of Felix Mantilla, one of the MLB’s first Latino players who arrived in the US at age 19 (without speaking English). Mantilla’s 24-year career began with a Puerto Rican police league at age 12 and went on to include a 1957 Milwaukee Braves World Series championship (while roommates with Hank Aaron!) and a selection to the 1965 All-Star Game as a member of the Boston Red Sox.

Now 82, Mantilla resides in Milwaukee where he founded his Little League in 1972 with a vision of helping youth reach their greatest potential not only in athletics, but also in academia, family and community responsibility. It is supported by the Milwaukee Brewers Community Foundation and has served more than 10,000 urban children on the city’s dominantly Latino near south side.  The league is operated by Journey House, a respected community development center serving the underprivileged neighborhood. Mantilla is believed to be today’s only person who has a Little League bearing an MLB player’s name.

Some of these children have not yet traveled just a few miles to Lake Michigan, yet alone flown over an ocean.

What a joy it will be for Mantilla to experience the children play ball in his hometown and learn from people and experiences in his native country.  Who can imagine the lifelong impact this experience might have on these children?

Fundraising for this program started just a few months ago, with more than $60,000 already raised toward the $80,000 goal.

It is catching attention far and wide including a notice by New York Yankees superstar Alex Rodriguez who recently heard about the program and sent a check.

Known as a skilled utility man, Mantilla played for Milwaukee Braves, New York Mets, Boston Red Sox and Houston Astros.

The Milwaukee Brewers, in conjunction with Gold In September (G9), will host the “#growGOLD Game” at Miller Park on Labor Day, Monday, September 5. The event will feature numerous initiatives to raise awareness for research into childhood cancer.

Utilizing a noble model of turning the world gold, G9’s mission is to increasing funding for childhood cancer research and initiatives by growing awareness that inspire action to help every child, everywhere, until cures for cancer are found. The childhood cancer non-profit was founded by Annie Bartosz, a then 11-year old girl from Hartland, Wis., who lost her twin brother, Jack, to cancer in 2012. Gold (G) is the national color for pediatric cancer research, and September (the 9th month) is the recognized National Childhood Cancer Awareness month, together they make G9.

For this game, the Brewers and their opponent, the Chicago Cubs, will sport gold ribbons on their jerseys to promote the cause. In addition, players will be encouraged to wear gold wristbands as part of their uniforms.

Prior to the game, members of G9 will start things off with a ceremonial first pitch and Brewers Community Foundation will present the charity with a special donation in an on-field ceremony. Following the game and throughout the night, the Brewers will light Miller Park gold to call attention for those passing by.

“We are committed to spreading the message of G9’s #growGOLD initiative,” said Brewers Community Foundation Excusive Director Cecelia Gore. “One of our ownership pledges is to be a leader in the community, and we appreciate the opportunity to help support and raise awareness around critical issues that face children and their families.”

“We are proud to have the Milwaukee Brewers and the Brewers Community Foundation join us as we Grow Gold and raise awareness of the need to support efforts to eradicate childhood cancer as a major health concern. Through our partnership with national organizations like the Brewers, we are working to help every child everywhere survive cancer and have a future filled with hope and promise.” says Sarah Bartosz, President of G9.

Trip to Seattle a Homecoming for Davies

Astute fans have probably noticed a tattoo on Brewers pitcher Zach Davies‘ left forearm, but you may not have been able to make out exactly what it is:

Well, turns out that it is the Seattle skyline with the words “Remember Where You Come From.” Davies was kind enough to give us a close-up, as well as to take the time to sit down with me and chat about his tattoo and his love for the Emerald City, where the Brewers will head later this week. There, the Crew will take on the Mariners in Interleague play for the first time since 2013.

The Seattle native shows his love for his hometown on his forearm.

For Davies, Seattle holds strong sentimental value. It is where he was born and formed his earliest memories. And, although his immediate family moved to Arizona when he was 7, much of his extended family still lives there.

“I remember growing up there, not wanting to move,” Davies said. “I love the weather there. It just kind of fits my personality. It’s relaxed and place to just hangout.”

He’s also a big Seattle Seahawks fan:

Davies says he tries to go back and visit at least once a year, but there are times when he gets to go multiple times and fortunately for him, this year is one of them.

He says he has a couple of tattoos on his back, but he got the Seattle tattoo after he signed (with the Orioles) in 2011. Davies worked with the artist who sketched the design from a photo.

What does Davies enjoy most about Seattle that members of the Brewers Road Crew should check out this weekend?

“Downtown is awesome. You’ve got the Space Needle, you’ve got the marketplace (Pike Place Market), right by the water.  Right next to the Space Needle there is a music museum that I’ve always enjoyed going to,” Davies said.

“I also just enjoy taking in the landscape that I don’t get in Arizona,” he added, as the 23-year-old still lives in Arizona in the offseason. “My favorite restaurant is a seafood place right on the water, kind of across to get the city skyline view– Salty’s on Alki Beach.”

Known for his ’90s/grunge-type entrance music, like Nirvana and Bush, Davies admits that the city inspires his choices.

“It does,” he said. “The grunge genre has always been my favorite.”

Davies will face the Cubs today in the series finale at Wrigley, so unfortunately he will just miss pitching in his hometown; however, needless to say, Davies is excited to be going back where he came from this weekend.

Yoga a “Om” Run with Brewers Players This Season

If you’ve been following us on social media, you are probably aware that, leading up to the past two seasons, the Brewers training staff has been incorporating yoga sessions into the players’ various workouts during Spring Training.

Well, this year, that practice extended beyond Spring Training and was added as optional weekly or biweekly workout sessions during each homestand.

“The mental part of baseball is so big. Having these guys experience an opportunity of how to calm their minds when they’re doing active movements is probably the biggest reason,” said Major League Strength and Conditioning Specialist Josh Seligman, who explained why he believes yoga is an important part of the mix.  “Then there’s obviously the secondary reason, which is flexibility when the muscle is under tension. It also kind of mixes it up for them and takes them out of their normal system. So, just the comprehensiveness of it. It’s also low-impact, so over a long season, it provides that recovery as well.”

Although optional, several players have seen and felt such great benefits that they have become devoted to a regular practice led by local yoga expert and studio owner, Pamela Bliss.

Instructor Pamela Bliss leads some members of the Crew through a yoga practice on the field.

Instructor Pamela Bliss leads some members of the Crew through a yoga practice on the field.

Bliss began her yoga practice 17 years ago when she became chronically ill, was in chronic pain, and didn’t know where else to turn.

“Yoga saved my life,” Bliss said. “Everything that was previously wrong has been healed. Honestly, what I can do today is a direct result of the practice. Physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually—I’m a different human being because of yoga. Without my practice, I don’t know how I would manage and balance it all.”

And when Bliss says balance “it all,” she means it. In addition to working with the Crew, she owns  YogAsylum, a premier studio in Brookfield where she not only runs the business, but also teaches classes and runs a yoga teacher training program. Oh, and she recently acquired the Milwaukee School of Massage as well. Bliss’s credentials are impressive. She holds an M.A. in Transpersonal Psychology with concentration studies in Ecopsychology; and degrees in Nursing, Yoga, and Ecology. Bliss is also a meditation CD artist, intuitive medium, and inspirational speaker who presents at conferences internationally.

This week, I was fortunate to attend one of Bliss’s sessions to see what the guys are up to and chat with them and Bliss about the benefits of yoga—particularly as it relates to baseball and the players’ performance on the field.

“To me, the list of benefits is endless, but also measurable, because you do see a clear difference,” Bliss said. “Yoga is very experiential. You have to do it in order to receive its benefits. The more you put into it, the more you get out of it, so consistency is very important.”

In the 45-minute sessions for the Crew, Bliss mixes it up for the players. For example, the session I attended included traditional hatha, along with vinyasa flow, and some yin poses (longer holds) incorporated toward the end.

There is something extra-calming about practicing yoga barefoot in the outfield, as well as gazing up to this view in your poses.

“For the guys, we work on addressing the six directions of the spine, strengthening the core, and really focusing on the hips,” Bliss explained. “By watching their movements, I clearly see the need for and benefit from hip openers, so those are things I make sure we work on every time.”

Bliss works with a wide range of individuals—all walks of life and all abilities—but she says working with baseball players is definitely unique.

“The first time I went down to Spring Training was to get an idea of what the players needed and see how I could help. I have to say it was the first time I had been in a yoga practice where sunflower seeds were being spit and there was all this chatter,” Bliss said with a laugh. “I knew then this was going to be an interesting process!  But everyone has been super receptive, super grateful, and the coaches are really happy about it…I know everyone really appreciates it.”

Pitcher Carlos Torres, who is among the regulars in Bliss’s sessions, is a big proponent of yoga as part of his extensive workout routine.

“There are different types of exercise that every team offers. Some of them will even go as far as ballet for agility and stuff like that, but yoga is one that team-to-team–while not every team is going to provide it–every team recommends it,” Torres said.

“As athletes, we’re taught to lift a lot of weights, we’re taught to be strong, we’re taught to be a lot of things, but you have to have strength within that flexibility and if you don’t, it’s useless strength,” he explained. “What yoga does is it builds that strength within that flexibility to actually translate your power that you’ve been working on the entire time to what it is you’re trying to do. For pitchers, it’s throw a ball. For some guys it’s hit, or steal bags and whatnot…. I hope that all teams provide it because I think it’s very beneficial to everybody.”

Outfielder Kirk Nieuwenhuis agrees; he likes the balance that yoga brings to his routine.

“It’s such a long season. We’re active everyday and, swinging as much as we do, that’s hard on your body. Yoga is really good for recovery and just limbering up and staying healthy,” he said. “If I go a few weeks without going, I can definitely feel it. In the offseason, it’s something that I have been trying to implement a little bit more over the last few years and it’s helped, so I think that it’s definitely a good thing.”

Corey Knebel‘s wife Danielle is a certified yoga instructor, so the pitcher is very familiar with the practice, which he has typically incorporated on his own during the offseason.

“This is the first year we’ve done it during the season. For me, I’m really tight. My hips are always tight, my legs are always tight, so it’s good to feel pretty flexible. I feel a big difference this year with it,” Knebel said.

Bliss helps pitcher Corey Knebel perfect his alignment.

And, while pitcher Matt Garza also says he reaps the benefits of flexibility, he enjoys the meditative side of the practice as well.

“I do yoga because it helps me control my breathing, it helps me get that under grasp. The stretching part is awesome. It really helps you get deep into stretches,” Garza said. “It used to be the stronger you are in the game, the better you are. It’s now how flexible you are. The more flexible you are, the better you can be in position and play your position. But I mainly like it because of the calming nature of the workout.”

Bliss added, “A lot of times people in general say, ‘It’s just physical,’ but it’s so far beyond that. In order to transcend the physical, you have to put in consistent effort — to invest in yourself to be your very best; what could be more important? That’s where these guys really get it and that’s what got them here; they are all in—that’s what makes this a lot of fun for me. It’s also a huge honor for me.”

And, as someone who is personally devoted to yoga, I was honored to share in this practice with Bliss and members of the Crew, if only for a day. Namaste!

Meta House has been blazing new trails in women’s substance abuse treatment since their doors opened in 1963. The agency is noted as one of the first residential treatment facilities in the country designed specifically for women. In 1988, Meta House became one of the first substance abuse treatment centers to include children in the residential setting. Meta House ends the generational cycle of addiction by healing women and strengthening families.

11th-Annual Cerveceros Day at Miller Park

Tonight, as the Brewers take on the Reds at Miller Park, we are honoring Hispanic heritage in baseball with the 11th- annual Cerveceros Day. The Brewers are wearing special ‘Cerveceros’ (Brewers in Spanish) uniforms and the Reds and wearing Los Rojos jerseys.

Prior to the game, the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce held their annual Fiesta Tailgate out at Helfaer Field, where Jonathan Villar, Hernan Perez and first-base coach Carlos Subero made an appearance.

During the pregame ceremonies, Jorge Franco, Chairman, President & CEO of the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of Wisconsin relayed this special message to fans:

“On behalf of the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of Wisconsin, thank you for joining us today’s exciting Cerveceros Day here at Miller Park to celebrate diversity. As you can see, our beloved Milwaukee Brewers are in Spanish language attire in honor of our nation’s wonderful Hispanic culture and high-growth population.

Our special thanks to the Hispanic Chamber members and partners througout the state, including this year’s Fiest Tailgaters who joined us today at Helfaer Field. We greatly appreicate may Tom Barret, who joined us today at Helfaer Field. We greatly appreciate Mayor Tom Barrett who year-after-year joins us for this exciting event and who is an outstanding leader and friend to our entire Milwaukee Community. Our express and deepest gratitude to this year’s 2016  HCCW All-Star Partnership Award Recipient, i.e., Johnson Bank, for their outstanding support of the Hispanic Chamber.

Thank you again con un cariñoso abrazo from your Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of Wisconsin!”

The national anthem was led by Salvador Villanueva and a ceremonial first pitch was thrown by Guz Hernandez representing Cerveceros Day.

As part of the fun tonight, we’re also offering Chorizo Nachos at the concession stand near Section 120. The platter will feature chorizo sausage, tortilla chips, queso blanco, pico de gallo and jalapenos.
