AJ Bombers Concrete Custard Concoctions Return for 2016; Here’s a Look at April’s Menu!

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, which will return in May.

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

I’ll be sure to check in with AJ Bombers often throughout the season to keep you informed on their newest menu items.

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 “Miller Park Eats,” a tab that highlights our featured fare each month and includes an A-to-Z concession guide to where you can find all the yummy grub all season long!

Opening Day Ceremonies at Miller Park

Greetings from Miller Park on every Brewers fan’s favorite day of the year: Opening Day!

The festivities began early this morning with media availability at the ballpark beginning at 5am.

After that, the Brewers Front Office met on the field for the annual staff photo. Afterwards, we split up into departments and took additional pics, like this one with the marketing team:

Then, while hardy Brewers fans tailgated in 30-degree weather,

….it was time for the Crew to take batting practice.

Time for a little BP before the #BrewersOpener! #Brewers #MILvsSF

Boy was it good to see these guys on the field again! They were excited, too:

It was good to see Will Smith, who is currently on the DL with a knee injury, in good spirits. He even told a special Opening Day edition of #MomJokeMonday on Snapchat:

Then it was time to get ready for the game.

The lineups were announced:

And so it begins! #BrewersOpener #Brewers #ItsGoodOutHere

and the national anthem was sung:

and the ceremonial first pitch was tossed:

Now all that’s left to do is….

PLAY BALL!

UPDATED 4/29/16: 2016 Brewers Walk-Up & Entrance Music

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!

Brewers Players & Staff Welcome Fans to Baseball Season

We are now just mere hours from the #BrewersOpener and believe me, we’re all just as excited as all of you.

To share in the excitement for Opening Day, Brewers players and staff took to the streets this morning delivering notes containing tickets, concession vouchers and other surprises to unsuspecting fans.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Fans quickly caught on and took to social media with photos of their notes and enthusiasm for the return of Brewers baseball:

What a fun way to kick off the start of the 2016 season!

And even if you weren’t one of the lucky fans to receive a note from the Crew, you can still join in the excitement of Opening Day!

On Facebook, be sure to add some Brewers flair to your profile photo:

BREWERS TEAM UP WITH MKE FELLOWS

Today we announced a new community partnership with MKE Fellows, an immersive program designed to provide African American college students from Milwaukee with the tools to become leaders in business and all areas of their lives.

MKE Fellows identifies high-potential, African American college student leaders from economically disadvantaged backgrounds and gives them the experience they need in order to compete in an ever-changing global economy. Students who are selected are given the guidance and opportunities to grow as leaders, and as individuals.

“The Milwaukee Brewers place a high value on working with the diverse communities in southeast Wisconsin,” said Brewers Chief Operating Officer Rick Schlesinger. “The MKE Fellows internship program creates an outstanding opportunity for us to build on our goal of identifying and encouraging development of talented, locally-based future business leaders.”

Four MKE Fellows will join the Brewers this summer as interns, gaining valuable experience in the business operations of the organization.

The program began at Morehouse College in 2012 with a goal of improving the life opportunities for a small number of Milwaukee-area students, and it has been successful in all regards. MKE Fellows seeks to groom young men from Milwaukee through quality education, plus develop them as leaders who can be emulated by countless others in the community.

MKE Fellows internships are a significant element in the program, but the approach is immersive and comprehensive. Areas of focus – the “Five Pillars” – include:

  • Leadership and Professional Development
  • Internship Matching/Job Experiences
  • Mentoring
  • Social Support and Networks
  • Scholarship

Morehouse College remains as a key partner, but the program has expanded to include colleges and universities in Wisconsin.

For more information about MKE Fellows, please visit mkefellows.com.
