Each year when I travel down to Arizona for Spring Training, one of my favorite things to do is to check out all of the fun apparel and merchandise sold in the Brewers Team Store at Maryvale.
Because the Spring Training logo changes from year to year as does the style, there’s always lots of new and fresh items in fun colors. You can also pick up non-Spring Training Brewers gear at the store, so it’s also fun to get a sneak peek of the 2014 line of Brewers apparel.
In this post, I’m going to focus on Brewers Spring Training gear for women. I’ll have subsequent posts previewing the Spring Training gear for men, the non-Spring Training gear for both men and women, kids and baby apparel and other fun items available in the shop.
Here is a gallery of all of the Women’s Spring Training Tees, Tanks & Pullovers:
Stay tuned for more!
Ever wondered what a 90+ mph fastball looks like from the point of view of a Major League catcher? We were curious, too. So today, we strapped a GoPro camera to the chest of Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy during batting practice as Kyle Lohse took the hill.
Check back in a bit and we’ll have some awesome footage to share!
UPDATE: Here’s a quick glimpse of some of the footage we got today (in slo-mo):
2/25/14 Update: We have more footage from yesterday’s BP:

Bernie, watch your back.
Move over, Brat, Polish, Italian, Hot Dog and Chorizo—there’s a new Top Dog in town.
We’re not sure where he came from, but a little stray pup is quickly becoming not just the Brewers unofficial Spring Training mascot, but a valued member of the team.
The pooch, who has since been named Hank (after who else but Hank Aaron?), wandered into Brewers camp two days ago looking a little grubby but ready for play. In no time, this little dog has stolen more hearts than Tommy Harper stole bases in 1969.
A staff member took Hank to the vet where he received his shots and a bath, but this little scrapper’s jersey will never be spotless. His white uniform looks to be permanently shaded a little on the gray side in places, but when you get to know this little fella’s personality, you see it’s a perfect fit.
Hank spends each day roaming offices and playing fields, visiting with everyone from Doug Melvin, Ron Roenicke, players and coaches to ticket office and concessions staff. Hank is going home with members of the organization each night to a warm bed, and he recently completed a day at the Team Store where he picked out his favorite styles from the latest Brewers pet gear.
So, what’s the next chapter? Stay tuned. Hank is in good hands and we’ll keep you posted on our most devoted “tail”-gater in the coming days.

After our posts yesterday, Hank has become a dog in demand! He spent the morning in the Clubhouse and did three TV interviews. He also took to the field for practice with his mentor, Yovani Gallardo.
Also, many of you are asking what is going to happen to Hank after Spring Training. Rest assured, Hank’s days as a stray are over, one way or another and he’ll continue to be well taken care of.
Here are some more photos from earlier today (How fitting is it that it’s “National Love Your Pet Day“?):

The Brewers marketing department has come up with a fun, unique (and topical) campaign to help entice lapsed Brewers Season Seat Holders to renew their tickets for the 2014 season.
Last week, just in time for Valentine’s Day, select accounts received a small package containing a special gold baseball, along with a card from Brewers outfielder Carlos Gomez, tying in to Valentine’s Day and playing upon Carlos’ Gold Glove winning season in 2013.
So far, the response has been great.
Take a look at some of the photos of the package below:
Sometimes, it’s good to be a follower.
As in, on Friday, February 28, from 12-5pm CT when followers of the @Brewers Twitter Account will have the chance to purchase individual game tickets before they go on sale to the general public on Saturday, March 1 in conjunction with the Brewers Arctic Tailgate event.
Here’s how it works–if you don’t already follow us on Twitter, click here and follow @Brewers. (Not on Twitter? No worries–it’s free and now is the perfect time to sign up! Just don’t blame me when you find yourself addicted to the service. #ILoveTwitter)
Then, just watch our account. Along with all of the news, insider updates and information that we normally share on Twitter, we’ll be tweeting out a special link and password that you’ll need to be able to take advantage of this special pre-sale opportunity.
Once you receive the link/password, you’ll be able to log in on Friday, February 28 from 12pm to 5pm CT, where you’ll have the chance to purchase individual game tickets to 80 home games (sorry guys, no Opening Day through this presale) before the general public gets their shot on Saturday morning. There will be an eight (8) ticket limit per game for this online sale.
So what you need to do between now and February 28:
2. Familiarize yourself with the 2014 schedule so when the time comes, you know exactly which games you want to snag. Are you going for the #Brewers14in14 All-Fan Bobblehead and/or T-Shirt games? Or maybe you’re looking to lock in your 5-County or Spring Madness dates? We’re hosting the Yankees this season and it’s Derek Jeter’s last, so maybe that’s on your wish list. View the full promotional schedule here.
So this year, you may just want to avoid the cold and camp out in front of your computer instead. Or, if you’re still planning to attend Arctic Tailgate for the camaraderie and/or your shot at Opening Day tickets*, you could also still take advantage of this opportunity while you’re waiting in line–yep, shopping online while waiting in line. Thank you, technology.
*Another option to guarantee Opening Day tickets? Go for FREE with a Brewers 10-Pack. Click here for details.

In honor of Valentine’s Day tomorrow (yes, I’ll wait while you click over to another tab and hastily Google “buy flowers Milwaukee”–or better yet, choose a gift that keeps on giving by hopping over to brewers.com and purchasing a Brewers 4-Pack), we’ll be hosting a fun contest across our social media sites.
