Scenes from #BrewersSocial: Recapping Brewers Social Media Night

Thank you to all of the fans who came out to Brewers Social Media Night tonight–and thank you to everyone who follows us on all of our social platforms year-round. We love seeing your photos and engaging with you. And, at events like these, it is great meeting you in person, too!

We had a great crowd of over 250 fans for our special event tonight, which started out with fans checking in at Helfaer Field and receiving their special t-shirt featuring the #BrewersTeamSelfie:

Fans Cheering

Fans then had the opportunity to take selfies of their own with the FOX Sports Wisconsin Girls, Bernie Brewer (a #MVT in his own right) and the Klement’s Famous Racing Sausages while waiting for the #BrewersMVT ceremony to begin.

Last month, fans elected Carlos Gomez the 2014 #BrewersMVT…. yes, that’s right…M-V-T. Most valuable tweeter. This is the first year that we’ve bestowed this award and, as you know, since so many of the Brewers players are active on Twitter, there was some stiff competition. But, you voted with your hashtags and your heart and selected Brewers All-Star and Gold Glove Winner Carlos Gomez as your favorite follow.

Perhaps it was the #BrewersTeamSelfie that put him over the edge, his photos of his teammates sleeping on the plane, or his fondness for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, but whatever it was, it’s clear that Carlos Gomez keeps you entertained, not only on the field, but online as well.

We had a special award waiting for Carlos:

Brewers Radio Announcer (and avid tweeter) Joe Block was on hand to emcee the event:

Joe was about to present Carlos with his Golden Hashtag, but instead, Carlos surprised us all by pulling a fan out of the crowd to give it to him. “The fans voted for me, they should present it,” he said.

Ever the “social” butterfly, Carlos pulled out his phone and took a video of the crowd, which he posted to Instagram and Twitter on the spot:

Following the award ceremony, Carlos answered a few questions that had been tweeted in advance from fans. Then, we drew a grand prize: A Carlos Gomez package featuring the opportunity to take a selfie with Carlos on the field. Here’s the result:

Gomez Selfie

Many other fans walked away with prize packages as well:

Other Winners

Following the event, fans went inside Miller Park to watch the Crew take on the Marlins.

Hashtags

Here are some “best-of” tweets and Instagram posts from the fans throughout the night. You can find a comprehensive stream at brewers.com/socialmedianight.

 

Thank you also to FOX Sports Wisconsin for their coverage of our event:

 

Thank you once again to those who were able to join us and  those of you who follow us on social all year long! You make my job fun!

Oh, yes–one more thing.  Just a quick reminder that we’re closing in on one million fans on Facebook. If you’re not already following us there, please do! When we reach that milestone, one lucky fan will win a VIP package.

One of the most fun, new additions to Miller Park this season has been AJ Bombers. The popular restaurant and bar-with locations in Milwaukee and Madison-now occupies the outside space formerly known as the Plaza Pavilion, along the west side of Miller Park near the right-field gate.

AJ Bombers offers a selection of cheeseburgers, egg rolls, tater tots, shakes, custards, specialty concrete mixers and more. The menu also include homestand specials, such as their popular city-themed concrete mixers.

Tonight, to kick off a four-game series against the St. Louis Cardinals, AJ Bombers is serving up the Gooey Butter Cake Concerte Mixer.

gooey-butter-cake

A St. Louis classic, Gooey Butter Cake is a flat and dense cake, typically near an inch tall, and dusted with powdered sugar. While sweet and rich, it is somewhat firm, and is able to be cut into pieces similar to a brownie. 

Add the cake to AJ Bombers custard and you’ve got yourself a very special treat. AND for even more of a treat, be sure to “check-in” via the free MLB.com At The Ballpark App for a special 2-for-1 custard offer this homestand!

Volunteers & Entertainment Needed For The Brewers Mini & 10K!

If you’re interested in participating in the Brewers Mini-Marathon +10K, but not necessarily by running, we’ve got some great options for you!

The 13.1 mile half-marathon and 10K, beginning and ending at Miller Park on Saturday, September 20th will take over 750 volunteers to ensure that all participants have a safe and fun experience.

I talked with Tai Pauls, Manager of Special Events for Brewers Enterprises and she told me that they are in need of volunteers in a variety of locations and would welcome anyone to join them.

There are two ways to volunteer:

EVENT CREW VOLUNTEERS

Brewers Enterprises is looking for people who want to be a part of the Brewers Mini +  10K Event Crew. You can volunteer as an individual or as a group. [Note: Since proceeds from the race go to the MACC Fun, this is also a great opportunity for a community service project!]

Individuals are needed to help out in a variety of areas including at packet pick-up, the full gear check area, at the start & finish line, as course marshals, as part of the bike team leading the race, or at the post-race tailgate party. All individual shifts & jobs can be selected on the volunteer page of the race website.

Volunteer Groups are also extremely important to help man the various Aid Stations along the course and they are still looking for groups to join them. At the Aid Stations, groups will assist in distributing water to the runners and lend some moral support to runners like John and me by cheering us on the way. Tai encourages groups to embrace their stations and make them their own by displaying team/organization/company banners, colors, etc.  Other areas where groups can possibly be utilized are at the finish line, race results tents or packet pick-up the day before the event.

Last year, sororities, charitable groups, school groups and local companies who manned their stations were integral to the race’s success.

ENTERTAINMENT VOLUNTEERS

In addition to keeping things organized and safe for the runners, Tai’s goal is to make sure that we have an extremely fun and enjoyable experience.

To do this, they are seeking a variety of entertainment acts stationed along the course to entertain the runners. We have some great acts lined up already, but we’re always looking for family friendly entertainers, cheer groups, and bands to perform for participants and spectators on the course.

Entertainment groups are considered volunteers as well, but will receive great exposure and promotion as a Brewers Mini +10K entertainment act.  All bands, groups, etc. will be listed with logo and/or name on www.brewersmini.com and will be included in the email correspondence to all runners.

So, what’s in it for you?

In addition to being a part of this unique event, all volunteers and entertainers will receive:

  • An official Event Crew t-shirt
  • A ticket voucher good for a regular season game in April/May of 2015

Depending on the volunteer assignment, the timeframe for race day on Saturday, September 20, is approximately 6am-11:30am (some jobs start later or end earlier). More information can be found on the sites below.

Event Crew Volunteer info – http://www.race-brewers.com/volunteers-2013

Entertainment Volunteer info – http://www.race-brewers.com/entertainment

If you’re running the race and/or can’t volunteer yourself, please pass this along to anyone you know who might be interested in helping out. It is sure to be a fun day for runners and volunteers alike!

Thanks in advance for your assistance, we look forward to seeing you on September 20!

The Brewers Wives Complete the “Ice Bucket Challenge;” YOU Are On Deck!

Today, another  “Ice Bucket Challenge,” an initiative started to raise awareness and funds to help strike out ALS, was completed at Miller Park–this time by the Brewers Wives.

Earlier this week, Jonathan Lucroy’s wife, Sarah, completed the challenge and, in turn, passed it along to the Brewers Wives.

The Brewers Wives and Debbie Attanasio are all making personal donations to the cause and, today, a group of the Wives (along with Mark Reynolds, whose wife already did the challenge and nominated him) also completed the challenge, some with help from their husbands:

They have now passed the baton to the Pittsburgh Pirates Wives (the Brewers kick-off a three-game series against the Pirates tonight at Miller Park), and… you! That’s right, they’ve issued the challenge to ALL BREWERS FANS. So, now it is in your hands…complete the ice bucket challenge and/or donate online at ALSA.org.

Here are some stills:

And a GIF:

The list of people from the Brewers organization who have completed the challenge is growing. Take a look at some of the previous videos:

ALS is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. ALS is also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease after the famed baseball player whose struggle with this disease and death in 1941 brought it national attention.

And recently, the disease has been gaining a LOT of attention from this Ice Bucket Challenge, started by ALS patients Pete Frates and Pat Quinn to help raise money and awareness for the disease. The challenge is quite simple: Fill up a bucket of ice water, as cold as you can get. Have someone record a video while you dump the bucket over your head. Then share on social media, issuing the challenge to three friends.

Along with members of the organization getting cold and wet for a cause, Brewers Community Foundation has also made a donation of $5,000 to ALSA Wisconsin on behalf of the Club and the Ice Bucket Challenge participants. Click here to join us in our support.

Brewers Players & Coaches Attend Military Luncheon

Several Brewers players and coaches joined military families for a private tailgate lunch at the Milwaukee County War Memorial Center this afternoon.  Each branch of the military was represented.

Here are some photos from this special event:

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

As part of the organization’s community initiative known as “Beyond the Diamond,” Brewers players and coaches participate in a series of community outreach events throughout the season. The program is built around a partnership between Brewers players, coaches, alumni, Brewers Wives and team personnel working hands-on in the community.  The community events are funded in part by Brewers Community Foundation and focus on the areas of health, education, recreation and basic needs.

New Fitness Gear at the Brewers Team Store

I’m very excited because the Brewers Team Store just got in new Brewers Fitness Gear, including yoga mats and stability balls from Cirrus Fitness!

I have practiced yoga for many years and I can’t tell you how I excited I was to learn that the store was stocking Brewers yoga mats!

The yoga mat is 24″ x 72″ x 1/5″ and retails for $60.

The stability balls are available in 55″ and 65″ sizes for $55 each.

Stability Balls

 

If you haven’t been to the store in awhile, you should stop in there the next time you’re at Miller Park–they also carry a variety of different fitness clothing from a wide selection of vendors, so you can also wear your support while you workout.

I’m told the store will be getting in even more fitness items moving forward, so check back often. And of course, I’ll try my best to let you know about it here on the blog!

This burger is exclusive to Miller Park (i.e. not served at AJ Bombers’ restaurants) and available for a limited time.

AJ Bombers also offers different custard flavors pertaining to the visiting team/city. For the Blue Jays series, they’ve got Maple Doughnut Hole!
