Carlos Gomez and LULAC Provide Scholarship Funds

Since 1975, League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) councils have been providing scholarships to Hispanic students in the Milwaukee community. LULAC offers scholarships for high school seniors, undergraduate and graduate college students.

Last year, Brewers outfielder Carlos Gomez partnered with LULAC to create the Carlos Gomez Hispanic Scholarship Fund to provide more scholarships to Hispanic students who are interested in attending college in Wisconsin.

Today, Carlos and Dr. Arturo Martinez, LULAC State Director, Member Council 333, were on hand to present a $4,000 check to Christine McGee, Executive Director of the Milwaukee Area Technical College Foundation. The foundation will match that amount to provide scholarships for Hispanic students who will be attending MATC this fall.

Thanks to @c_gomez27, LULAC & the MATC Foundation for supporting education.

UPDATED 4/13/15: 2015 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!
