This Friday at 1 p.m., Brewers starter Kyle Lohse will visit the construction site of the new Sojourner Family Peace Center. At the event, which is open to the media, Lohse will tour the site and meet with members of the staff.
Sojourner Family Peace Center, located in Milwaukee, transforms lives impacted by domestic violence. .
In October 2014, Sojourner celebrated the start of construction for a new Family Peace Center. Based on the nationally known and proven Family Justice Center model, the new Center will transform our community’s response to family violence and ultimately make Milwaukee and its surrounding communities a healthier, safer and more peaceful place to live. This model is a best practice for delivering care to families impacted by domestic violence.
The new building is located at 619 West Walnut Street in Milwaukee and is scheduled to open in late 2015. This co-located center will offer coordinated services for those impacted by domestic violence. In addition to moving and expanding our current shelter, Sojourner Truth House, and the 24-hour hotline, Sojourner is joined with Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin, the Milwaukee Police Department, and the Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office, among others at the site.
This year, WaterStone Bank and Brewers Community Foundation are partnering to benefit Sojourner through the “K’s For A Cause” program. WaterStone Bank and BCF will each make a donation to the Sojourner Family Peace Center for every strikeout recorded by a Brewers pitcher at Miller Park during the 2015 season. The strikeout total for each game and the season is displayed on the “strikeout meter” sign at Miller Park, which is located on the right field fascia.
This Friday night, we will host the public opening of the Selig Experience, one of the most unique attractions in sports. And, for a limited time, you can skip the line and reserve your place to be among the first Brewers fans to take it all in.
The attraction will debut that night when gates to Miller Park open at 5:40 pm prior to the Brewers facing the Diamondbacks (7:10 first pitch). The Selig Experience is open to the general public during all Brewers home games, from the time gates open until the 7th inning. Fans must have a separate game ticket for entry into Miller Park, but there is no additional charge for admission to the Selig Experience.
Fans can register in advance for one of two reserved tours during each remaining Brewers home game by visiting brewers.com/SeligExperience.
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!

STAR WARS NIGHT COMING TO MILLER PARK; Fans Encouraged to Arrive in Costume, but Leave Lightsabers back on their Millennium Falcon
In a time in the near future, in a ballpark near you, the Milwaukee Brewers will host Star WarsTM Night Presented by Kohl’s. On Saturday, May 30, join the Brewers as they duel (with bats, not lightsabers) the Arizona Diamondbacks at 3:10 p.m. in an epic battle against the Dark Side at Miller Park.
A number of Star Wars characters will make special appearances throughout the afternoon and evening. Fans are encouraged to dress in costume and are permitted to wear masks, but the Brewers ask all aspiring Jedis to leave their lightsabers at home. Any and all lightsabers, toy guns or weapons will not be permitted in Miller Park. Fans will still be permitted to use the Force, so long as they do not bring in an actual device.
Earlier this month, fans were asked to post an original video to reenact their favorite Star Wars scene and/or deliver their favorite line from the film on Instagram and/or Twitter using the hashtag #PitchFirstIWill. Patrick Ryan has won the contest after submitting this video:
Patrick receives four Loge Infield Box tickets to the game along with four Jedi Luc bobbleheads, as well as the opportunity to throw out the first pitch prior to the game.
For more information about Star Wars Night presented by Kohl’s or other theme nights at Miller Park, please call 414-902-4777 or visit Brewers.com/specialevents.

NOTE: Only those fans who purchased the sold-out Star Wars Night ticket package will receive a limited-edition Jonathan Lucroy “Jedi Luc” bobblehead. A valid voucher is required to pick up the bobblehead and fans can retrieve the giveaway at redemption tables located by sections 406, 435 and one on the first base side on the Field Level Concourse.
The much-anticipated Selig Experience will open to the public on Friday, May 29 when the Brewers begin a three-game series against the Diamondbacks. Throughout this week, 15 pairs of tickets to the May 29 game – including the first public screening of the Selig Experience at 5 p.m. – will be given away as prizes via @Brewers on Twitter. Fans have the opportunity to win the tickets by following @Brewers on Twitter beginning today through Friday, May 22. Prizes will be given away via retweet contests and also through Twitter Trivia during Brewers games this week.
(Note: Friday, May 29 is also the date of our first of 2015. That means if you win, you’ll get to see the Selig Experience, the Brewers vs. Diamondbacks game and a Joe Nichols concert!)
Located on Miller Park’s Loge Level in the left-field corner, the Selig Experience will be open to the general public during all Brewers home games, from the time that gates open until the 7th inning. Admission is free for those with tickets to the game, and will be on a first-come, first-served basis. The attraction will also be open to selected tour groups.
A highlight of the attraction is a multimedia presentation that tells the story of Selig’s role in successfully bringing the Brewers to Milwaukee, saving Major League Baseball in the city with his commitment to build Miller Park, and his tireless efforts to promote and grow the game in his hometown.
