Need some help playing hooky on Opening Day? We’ve got you covered. Brewers fans can now visit brewers.com/excuses to view and share excuse notes written by our team of ‘experts’ designed to get out of any obligation and make sure you are able to watch Brewers Opening Day on April 6.
For example, Kyle Lohse’s excuse note is the perfect one to use if you’re trying to get out of work:
He even thought to draft a version “for the ladies” to share:
Scooter Gennett’s got one to help you get out of any obligation with a significant other that day…although, now that I think about it, maybe you shouldn’t be sending an excuse note to that person so much as evaluating that relationship. If he/she doesn’t like the Brewers as much as you, that might be a bigger problem!
The other notes you’ll find include one from Mike Fiers to help you get out of chores; one from Will Smith to help you get out of class and one from “Dr. Matt Garza” to get you out of practice.
Here are some photos of the guys working on their notes earlier this Spring:
Visit brewers.com/excuses now to get and share your Brewers Opening Day excuse now to make sure you’re free next Monday when the Crew takes on the Rockies at 1:10pm CT.
And while these excuse notes should do the trick, if they’re still a little salty about you playing hooky, you can butter them up with some Brewers tickets. You’ll get a special offer from us once you share your note!
A couple of weeks ago, Brewers pitcher Will Smith penned a letter to “the other” Will Smith–as in the actor, producer and songwriter, Will Smith….yeah, that guy–inviting him to come visit him in Milwaukee this summer.
Well, it’s been a little while, and despite that video going viral and garnering national media attention for the campaign, our Will has been the first player checking his mailbox in Maryvale each morning, and he still hasn’t heard back.
So, we asked his teammates to pitch in. Check out what Rob Wooten, Jim Henderson, Jeremy Jeffress, Kyle Lohse and Mike Fiers had to say in response to our question: Why should Will meet Will?
Join in the #WillMeetsWill campaign on Twitter and Instagram to see if we can organize our efforts and get Will Smith out to Miller Park this summer to meet his namesake.
Or hey, Will, if you’re reading this… the Brewers play the Dodgers in LA July 10-12 and July 10 just happens to be our Will Smith’s birthday. Just sayin’.

One of the many benefits for fans purchasing a Brewers 10-Pack is the addition of Opening Day as a free 11th game. Due to high demand for the packages, however, the inventory for adding Opening Day as the bonus game is no longer available.
“Sales of our Season Seat plans this year have been very strong, and with that we have exhausted all of our 10-Pack inventory for Opening Day,” said Brewers Chief Operating Officer Rick Schlesinger. “Fans are still able to purchase 10-Packs, and they can select any game other than Opening Day as their free bonus game. Or, they can secure a ticket for Opening Day by purchasing a plan of at least 20 games for the 2015 season.”
Fans can still choose from one of six 10-Pack options, including the popular Fan’s Choice Plan which returns for 2015. All six plans feature 10 home games, plus another game of the fan’s choice as their FREE 11th game.
Each of the six plans offer a unique experience. The Weekend Plan features four giveaways, including the Mother’s Day “BobbleHank” on May 10, June 14’s Carlos Gomez All-Star Bobblehead, a Bobblehead of National League All-Star Jonathan Lucroy on August 16 and an All Fan Giveaway item to be decided by fan vote and distributed on the final day of the regular season, Sunday, October 4. The Premier Plan includes contests against all four division rivals as well as a matchup against NL West Division powers the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Friday Plan includes a string of five “T-Shirt Friday” giveaways starting with the June 12 game against the Washington Nationals and ending on August 14 when the Brewers host the Philadelphia Phillies. To top it off, the Friday Plan includes access to the first ever Brewers Postgame Concert Series when country artist Joe Nichols rocks Miller Park after the May 29 game against the Arizona Diamondbacks.
The popular Fan’s Choice Plan returns for the 2015 season and provides the ultimate flexibility for fans to select 10 games that fit their schedule from a list of 49 Brewers regular season home games. The plan can include several Interleague matchups, a variety of weekday and weekend games, All-Fan Bobblehead dates, T-Shirt Fridays, and more.
Packages start at $160 per seat in the Terrace Reserved ($16 per game) and can also be purchased in the Terrace Box for $250 ($25 per game), the Loge Outfield Box for $340 ($34 per game), the Club Outfield Box for $420 ($42 per game, no wait staff), the Loge Infield Box for $420 ($42 per game), the Field Outfield Box for $420 ($42 per game) and the Loge Diamond Box for $500 ($50 per game).
Brewers 10-Packs offer several benefits, including a free bonus ticket to any home game on the 2015 schedule (excluding Opening Day), guaranteed seat location, a personal account representative and priority access to Postseason tickets. In addition, 10-Pack Ticket Plans offer great savings on ticket prices. Last season, 10-Pack holders saved up to 35% off the demand-based individual game price. Each 10-Pack account will also receive three (3) exchange vouchers that can be used to exchange tickets you cannot or did not use for tickets to another game.
Fans interested in purchasing 10-Packs are encouraged to call (414) 902-HITS (4487) or visit Brewers.com/10packs for more information.
The Milwaukee Brewers have announced that Miller Park will once again play host to a Midwest League game. On Friday, June 19, at 7:10 p.m., the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers, Class-A affiliate of Milwaukee, and the Beloit Snappers, Class-A affiliate of Oakland, will square off at the home of the Brewers.
Ticket prices are set at $10 for Field Diamond Box seats and $5 for all other seat locations. Parking will be $5. Tickets are on sale beginning today at 9am CT and can be purchased by visiting the Miller Park Box Office, online at brewers.com/timberrattlers, or by calling the Brewers Ticket Office at (414) 902-4000.
“The annual game at Miller Park is a great showcase of the prospects with the Timber Rattlers and always a day our fans and players look forward to,” said Timber Rattlers President Rob Zerjav, “As an organization, we appreciate this opportunity the Brewers provide and we thank the Beloit Snappers for their willingness to relocate one of their home games to Miller Park.”
The game will once again be a home game for Beloit, with Wisconsin as the visiting team.
“The Beloit Snappers are pleased to return to Milwaukee to play our in-state rival, Wisconsin Timber Rattlers, once again,” said Dennis Conerton, President of the Beloit Snappers. “Last year was an exciting experience for our fans and our players. It is a great opportunity to showcase our Major League players of tomorrow in a beautiful big league stadium like Miller Park.”
This will mark the fourth time that these two teams will face off at Miller Park. It is the eighth time in team history that the Timber Rattlers will play a game at Miller Park and the fourth for the Snappers. Last season, the Timber Rattlers fell to the Snappers 4-2 and Beloit is 3-0 all-time against Wisconsin at Miller Park. The Timber Rattlers own a 3-4 lifetime record at the current home of the Brewers.
Games in year’s past have featured future Brewers players such as Prince Fielder, Tony Gwynn, Manny Parra, and Rickie Weeks. Other current Brewers who have played in Minor League games at Miller Park include Khris Davis, Scooter Gennett, Jim Henderson and Wily Peralta.

Today we announced that we will auction off Opening Day tickets for the 103 “Uecker Seats” located at Miller Park. The Dutch style auction will be held exclusively online beginning today, Monday, March 23 at 12:00 p.m. until Tuesday, March 31 at 11:59 p.m., with all proceeds benefiting the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
The “Uecker Seats” are 103 obstructed view seats that are located in Sections 421, 422 and 423. The seats were named after Brewers’ legendary announcer Bob Uecker and the famous Miller Lite “All Stars” campaign. The ad campaign featured Uecker’s famous tagline, “I must be in the front row,” despite the fact that Uecker somehow always ended up in the last row. The seats are located near the Last Row Statue of the announcer, which was unveiled last year, in the last row of Terrace Level Section 422.
The Dutch auction will be held exclusively online and there is no limit of the number of seats fans will be able to bid on. There are a total of 103 seats that will be auctioned off, with 42 pairs available and 19 single seats. Each participant can log on to brewers.com/UeckerSeats starting today, Monday, March 23 at 12:00 p.m. From there, fans can chose the pair and/or single seat options, and make their desired bids. Once the auction closes on Tuesday, March 31, the top bidders for each category will be selected. The final price for each seat will be the lowest bid among the top bidders selected.
Auction participants will be contacted by the Brewers Ticket Office if they have the winning bid. All proceeds from the auction will benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
