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.

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

Fans Treated to “Inside the Brewers” Discussion with Debbie and Mark Attanasio

Tonight I had the pleasure of joining Debbie and Mark Attanasio for an intimate “Inside The Brewers” program at the Rubenstein Pavilion on Prospect Avenue, an event presented by the Jewish Museum Milwaukee in conjunction with their special exhibit Chasing Dreams: Baseball & Becoming American.

The Q and A and discussion was moderated by Brewers broadcaster Brian Anderson, who welcomed Debbie and Mark to the stage by playing special “walk-up” songs–“My Girl” by the Temptations for Debbie and “Superstition” by Stevie Wonder for Mark.

Brian Anderson moderated the "Inside the Brewers" discussion with the Attanasios.

Topics covered including what it was like to buy a Major League Baseball team, how the couple initially bonded over baseball, the importance they place on giving back to the community, and family life.

Brian then took the couple on a stroll down memory lane by showing them a series of photographs and asking them to talk about the time and event depicted–what they remember, how they felt, anecdotes, etc.

For me, this was the most interesting part of the evening as I can’t recall ever seeing an interview done in this style. Photos included “never before seen” pictures of Mark and Debbie as children, family photos and photos from special points in time during their tenure with the Brewers.

Here are just a few of the photos, along with a short description (Click on a photo to start the gallery). Those in attendance were treated to many little side stories along the way, complete with loving banter that had us all in stitches.

The event concluded with questions from the audience. Those topics ranged from “Are you committed to keeping the Brewers in Milwaukee?” (the answer was an emphatic “YES!”) to what they enjoy most and least about the city. They both agree what they love the most is what a welcoming place Milwaukee is, but admit it can be “a touch cold.”

I’m so glad I was able to attend the event. It was a real treat and offered a rare chance for fans to do a deep dive with the owner of a professional sports team. I found it very informative and a lot of fun.

This evening was being presented by the Jewish Museum Milwaukee in connection with the current Jewish Museum Milwaukee exhibit, Chasing Dreams: Baseball & Becoming American, which opened earlier this month. Mark and Debbie, along with Bud and Sue Selig, also serve as Honorary Co-Chairs of the exhibit, which runs through September 7.

The exhibit consists of a core panel developed by and on loan from the National Museum of American Jewish History in Philadelphia. It has been augmented by artifacts on loan from local organizations and individuals and explores how baseball has served as an arena in which values, identity, ethnicity, and race have been projected, contested, and occasionally solidified.

The exhibit celebrates well-known Jewish heroes such as Hank Greenberg and Sandy Koufax, as well as iconic baseball pioneers such as Jackie Robinson, Joe DiMaggio, Roberto Clemente, and Ichiro Suzuki. It also highlights baseball’s extended family of vendors, team owners, minor leaguers, amateur players, scouts, broadcasters, journalists, novelists and fans.

Selig Experience at Miller Park to Open to Public on Friday, May 29

Today we announced that the Selig Experience, a state-of-the-art attraction at Miller Park to honor retired Commissioner Emeritus and former Brewers Owner Allan H. (Bud) Selig, will open to the public on Friday, May 29 when the Brewers face the Diamondbacks.

The Selig Experience is located on Miller Park’s Loge Level in the left field corner. 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.

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, and admission is free for those with tickets to the game. Admission will be on a first-come, first-served basis. The attraction will also be open to selected tour groups.

Miller Park already is known as a premiere destination for baseball fans, and the Selig Experience takes that to the next level. It will serve as a year-round attraction, adding another extraordinary enhancement to the overall fan experience.

The exhibition space totals approximately 1,500 square feet, and will include authentic artifacts from Selig’s tenure as the Brewers owner. It celebrates the fans’ love of the game, as told through the story of the Brewers founder.

The main multimedia show builds to a surprising encounter with the Commissioner himself inside an authentic reproduction of Selig’s County Stadium office, using a technology found in only a handful of exhibits around the world. After the show, Milwaukee fans will be delighted to take a sneak peek into Selig’s office for themselves.

The design and production of the Selig Experience is being led by BRC Imagination Arts, an experience design agency that Turns Brands into Destinations™. For more than three decades, its masterful storytellers have been chosen by iconic brands and cultural attractions all over the world to inspire and engage their audiences.

Selig’s dedication to baseball has paralleled his love of his hometown of Milwaukee. His first significant move as an executive was to return Major League Baseball to Milwaukee in 1970, when he founded the Milwaukee Brewers. In its first decade, the Brewers featured some of the great teams of that era, which eventually led to an American League pennant and World Series appearance in 1982.

During his tenure as Brewers owner, Selig earned United Press International’s 1978 Executive of the Year award, and the franchise was honored with seven “Organization of the Year” awards.

In the 1990s, Selig began his efforts to build a new ballpark in Milwaukee to replace the aging County Stadium, and Miller Park opened for its first season of play in 2001.

Uihlein-Wilson Architects is also contributing to the initial design of the space for the Selig Experience.

BREWERS ANNOUNCE NEW FAN EXPERIENCE HONORING BUD SELIG AT MILLER PARK

Today we announced the construction of a new fan experience at Miller Park, a state-of-the-art attraction to honor retiring Commissioner of Baseball and former Brewers Owner Allan H. (Bud) Selig.

Known as the “Selig Experience,” the exhibit will be located on Miller Park’s Loge Level in the left field corner. A highlight of the attraction will be a multimedia presentation that tells the story of Selig’s role in saving Major League Baseball in Milwaukee, his successful efforts to bring the Brewers to the city, and his tireless efforts to promote and grow the game in his hometown.

Miller Park already is known as a premiere destination for baseball fans, and the Selig Experience will take that to the next level. It will serve as a year-round attraction, adding another extraordinary enhancement to the overall fan experience.

“Commissioner Selig is the one person who ensured that the city of Milwaukee would continue as a Major League city, even when virtually all others had lost hope,” said Brewers Chief Operating Officer Rick Schlesinger. “We want to mark his legacy with much more than a museum, and we believe the Selig Experience will tell his story in one of the most unique fan attractions in all of sports.”

The main multimedia show builds to a surprising 3D encounter with the Commissioner himself inside an authentic reproduction of Selig’s County Stadium office, using a technology found in only a handful of exhibits around the world.

The design and production of the Selig Experience is being led by BRC Imagination Arts, an experience design firm that turns brands into destinations. For more than three decades, its masterful storytellers have been chosen by iconic brands and cultural attractions all over the world to inspire and engage their audiences.

“This exhibit is as much a celebration of the passionate Milwaukee Brewers fans as it is an homage to Commissioner Selig,” said Brad Shelton, Creative Director at BRC Imagination Arts. “We’re telling an emotional story of how the Brewers’ first fan brought professional baseball back to his friends and neighbors. Whether they take a quick tour between innings or spend more time examining every detail, this is an immersive experience that no Brewers fan will forget.”

Selig’s dedication to baseball has paralleled his love of his hometown of Milwaukee. His first significant move as an executive was to return Major League Baseball to Milwaukee in 1970, when he founded the Milwaukee Brewers. In its first decade, the Brewers featured some of the great teams of that era, which eventually led to an American League pennant and World Series appearance in 1982.

In the 1990s, Selig began his efforts to build a new ballpark in Milwaukee to replace the aging County Stadium, and Miller Park opened for its first season of play in 2001.

“I am humbled that the Brewers will chronicle the remarkable journey of the franchise through a fan experience at Miller Park named in my honor,” said Commissioner Selig. “The story of the Brewers revolves around the great sports fans of Milwaukee and Wisconsin, whose passion drove me to work toward bringing the National Pastime back to my hometown.  Given my affinity for history, I believe this exhibit will illustrate the extraordinary sense of community that the Brewers have always inspired.”

Earlier this year, the Brewers also announced that the Club will retire uniform #1 in Selig’s honor, signifying his role as founder of the franchise. The retired number will be displayed in time for Opening Day. Additionally, he was honored with a statue at Miller Park, which was unveiled on August 24, 2010.

Bob Uecker Statue in the “Last Row” Dedicated This Afternoon

This afternoon, we unveiled the new Bob Uecker statue at Miller Park in a ceremony open to special guests. Unlike the statues that surround Miller Park’s Home Plate Plaza, this statue is in the last row—yes, the last row of the Terrace Level at Miller Park.

Among those in attendance at the ceremony, emceed by Bill Schroeder, were Bob’s family, Jerry Augustine, Jim Gantner, Gorman Thomas, Ken Sanders, Rollie Fingers, Robin Yount, current Brewers coaches and players, former broadcasting partners and Brewers front office staff.

Rollie and Robin both spoke at the event and, thanks to Gino Salomone, movie critic from FOX 6, a few of Bob’s friends from Hollywood sent along their well wishes.

Watch messages from Ty Burrell, Morgan Freeman, Don Rickles, Jason Bateman, Kevin Costner, and Arnold Schwarzenegger: 

The statue pays tribute to the popular Miller Lite “All Stars” ad campaign which featured Uecker’s famous tagline, “I must be in the front row.”  In those commercials, Uecker somehow always ended up in the last row—as will this statue.  The statue sits atop the Uecker Seats in Miller Park’s Terrace Level (Section 422).  It features an open seat next to it allowing for a perfect photo opportunity.

Starting with the Brewers vs. Cubs series at Miller Park this weekend, be sure to stop up, take your photo and tweet it and/or Instagram it using #IMustBeInTheFrontRow and we’ll collect & share our favorites across our social media sites.

We must be in the front row!

We must be in the front row!

Prior to tonight’s 7:10 p.m. game against the Chicago Cubs at Miller Park, a presentation will be made on the field honoring Uecker and showcasing the statue.

The statue was designed by Brian Maughan, the artist of the four statues outside Miller Park on the Home Plate Plaza—Hank Aaron, Allan H. “Bud” Selig, Robin Yount and Uecker.
