Brewers Walk-Up & Entrance Music: Updated 8/25/15

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!

Photos from Last Night’s “Evening With Hank Aaron”

The 12th Annual “Evening With Hank Aaron,” presented by the Forest County Potawatomi Foundation, was held last night in the SKYY Lounge on the PNC Club Level at Miller Park. This year’s special guest was Joe Torre, chief baseball officer with Major League Baseball.

The “Evening With Hank Aaron” included a cocktail hour, silent auction and a sit-down dinner program featuring Hank Aaron and Joe Torre.

Here are a few photos from the event:

The event raised funds for the Hank Aaron Chasing the Dream Foundation. The foundation was created by Hank and his wife, Billye, to help children with limited opportunities and financial barriers develop their special talents and pursue their dreams. All proceeds from the evening benefit the fund and are administered locally to help children in the Milwaukee area.

New for 2015, in accordance with MLB-wide policy, all fans will be required to go through metal detector screening via walkthrough and/or handheld detectors, prior to being granted access to Miller Park. To help expedite the process and minimize delays, the Milwaukee Brewers will implement Express lanes for guests that are entering the ballpark without a bag. Fans will be asked to remove cell phones, cameras, and other large metal objects prior to entering, but they will not be required to remove shoes, wallets, coins, or belts. Guests are also encouraged to take prohibited items back to their car. Items left at the gate are not the responsibility of the Milwaukee Brewers.

Anyone who has seats on the floor will need to obtain a wristband to access their seating area.

We recommend allowing yourself extra time to get your wristband and get to your seat in time for the show. Wristbands can be picked up at the booths located outside the Home Plate Gate and the Hot Corner Gate from 4:00 PM until approximately 5:15 PM.  There will also be four booths inside the ballpark that will be available when the gates open (Field Level concourse near section 118, 110, 126 and in the Hot Corner near the Walls of Honor).

#ScooterGnome Photo Op at Miller Park

I’m so excited about Miller Park’s newest photo op, a #ScooterGnome cutout in advance of the All-Fan Giveaway slated for Sunday, September 20.

I had the cutout out at batting practice today so I could show Scooter. He thought it was pretty awesome.

Be sure to take your photo with the new #ScooterGnome cutout at Miller Park! #Brewers

A photo posted by brewers (@brewers) on

However, many of his teammates made the comment that it was “life-size,” so Scooter had to dispel the myth:

Don’t worry, Scoot, they’re just jealous. :)

Next time you’re at Miller Park, be sure to look for the cutout in the kids area in the right-field corner on the Field Level.

Also….I just couldn’t resist!




Say Cheese! It’s Brewers Team Photo Day

Today was Brewers Team Photo Day at Miller Park.

The risers were set up in the infield early this afternoon and Brewers Team Photographer Scott Paulus and his staff were on hand to take the official 2015 photo.

Now, I don’t know about you, but I was never a big fan of “picture day” back in school.

Now imagine that times 100, factoring in getting together all of the players–in uniform–along with coaches and staff….without the added bonus of a free comb. You can only hope everyone is on time and hope that nobody blinks.

Here’s a hyperlapse we took of the “event”:

You may notice a man and his little girl stepping into the shot. That’s Season Seat Holder Bryan Wygert  and his daughter who received the unique opportunity to pose with the Crew:

Far left: Season Seat Holder Bryan Wygert and his daughter got to step in for a special shot.

However, Scott’s the ultimate professional and he’s been doing this for many, many years now. He know what he needs to do to get the guys in, out, and looking great each time.

All fans in attendance on Saturday, September 19 for Fan Appreciation Night will receive a copy of the team photo.




Pink Tie Guy Event Benefits Breast Cancer Research and Prevention

Last night, I was fortunate to be able to attend the “Pink Tie Guy” fundraiser at Blu atop the Pfister Hotel in downtown Milwaukee.

Led by President-Baseball Operations and GM Doug Melvin and his wife, Ellen, Pink Tie Guy is an event benefiting After Breast Cancer Diagnosis (ABCD). Breast cancer research and prevention is a cause near and dear to the Melvins’ hearts, as Ellen lost her mother, Elsie Schultz, to the disease in 1991.

Ginny Finn, Executive Director of ABCD, was on hand to speak about the importance of the cause and how grateful the organization is for support from events such as this.

A pink tie is not just a fashion statement – it’s a commitment to the fight against breast cancer. At the event, the “Pink Tie Guys,” an elite group of individuals who stepped up to the plate to contribute to the fight, were presented with custom pink bow ties from Randa Neckwear.

Attendees from the Brewers included Manager Craig Counsell, Jerry Narron, Ed Sedar, Mike Guerrero, Rick Kranitz, Lee Tunnell, Jimmy Nelson, and Jonathan Lucroy; broadcasters Bill Schroeder and Bob Uecker; and other front office executives.

In addition, this year, Commissioner Emeritus Bud Selig was named the 2015 Honorary Pink Tie Guy. Past Honorary Pink Tie Guys include Hank Aaron and Robin Yount.

Here are a few photos from the event:

Thank you to everyone who came out last night to support this very important cause.

Teddy Higuera Inducted Into Miller Park’s “Walk of Fame”

Today we honored former pitcher Teddy Higuera with induction into the Miller Park Walk of Fame. Teddy took part in a press conference and an on-field ceremony before today’s game. The ceremony was emceed by Bill Schroeder and afterwards, Higuera threw out the ceremonial first pitch.

Higuera received 25 of 32 votes (78.1%), exceeding the threshold of 65% needed for election.  In February, the Brewers announced the results of the Walk of Fame balloting as voted on by members of the media throughout Wisconsin as well as Brewers executives.

A lifetime Brewer, Higuera played nine seasons with the team.  He debuted with the Brewers in 1985 and went 15-8 with a 3.90 ERA and 127 strikeouts, while finishing as the American League runner-up for Rookie of the Year. The following season, Higuera posted a 20-win season, going 20-11 with a 2.79 ERA, including 207 strikeouts and 15 complete games.  He earned All-Star honors and finished second on the Cy Young Award ballot that season.  Higuera followed his success by setting the franchise record for strikeouts in a season with 240 in 1987 (since surpassed by Ben Sheets’ 264 strikeouts in 2004), as he went 18-10 with a 3.85 ERA in a career-high 35 starts.  Overall, he went 94-64 with 3.61 ERA in 213 career games (205 starts).  He currently ranks third among franchise leaders in career wins and strikeouts (1,081).

Past inductees include Hank Aaron, Rollie Fingers, Paul Molitor, Robin Yount in 2001; Commissioner Emeritus Allan H. (Bud) Selig and Cecil Cooper in 2002; Bob Uecker and Harry Dalton in 2003; Jim Gantner and Gorman Thomas in 2004; Don Money and Harvey Kuenn in 2005; Eddie Mathews, Warren Spahn and John Quinn in 2007 (the first year that former Braves players appeared on the ballot); Lew Burdette in 2010 and Johnny Logan in 2013.

Each inductee is honored with a granite plaque that is placed into the terrace area walkway that surrounds Miller Park.  The Higuera plaque is located on the outdoor plaza terrace along the left field side of the ballpark.
