O.A.R.’s Visit to Miller Park

Today, we were pleased to have rock band O.A.R. out at Miller Park.

In addition to performing our second post-game concert of the 2015 season, the band also took part in our pregame ceremonies, hosted a meet and greet with fans and enjoyed the Brewers vs. Nationals game.

Here are some photos from their day in Milwaukee.

Brewed for Her Event in Full Swing

Today, prior to and during the Brewers vs. Nationals game, we are hosting a special “Brewed For Her” event in the Gehl Club at Miller Park, an event geared toward women showcasing multiple products that are sold in the Brewers Team Stores, along with fashion tips, and interactive beauty stations highlighting new Brewers hair and nail accessories.

The event began at noon today, 1.5 hours  before gates opened to the general public. This allowed attendees to time to shop the stores, visit vendor booths, and take part in additional activities before the game began. Over 30 vendors participated in this event and attendees received a special 20% savings on merchandise purchased during the event.

Brewed for Her Agenda

The event kicked off with a Fashion Show in the Gehl Club emceed by Rick Schlesinger and Sophia Minnaert from FOX Sport Wisconsin.

Gone are the days of wearing men’s t-shirts to games and ill-fitting tank tops. The Brewers Team Store is chock-full of a variety of gear to suit any woman’s taste and almost any occasion such as attending a game, working out, or just being a weekend warrior. Plus, lots of other items for around the home and tailgating.

Here are a just a few photos of some of the offerings on display at Brewed for Her:

Hank the Ballpark Pup was also on hand for a special meet and greet with the fans.

In addition, attendees could enjoy a beer and wine tasting and beauticians were on hand during the event to offer advice and give demonstrations–the station to have your nails painted and/or hair styled with purchased Brewers accessories was very popular.

Attendees also received a Brewers vs. Nationals game ticket in the upscale Gehl Club at Miller Park, which included Hors d’oeuvres, an all-you-can-eat buffet and two complimentary beverages. 

Each attendee also left with a special reusable Brewed for Her swag bag containing a variety of items; items varied in each bag, but here’s a sample:

Attendees also could stick around for the O.A.R. postgame concert–what a fun, full day!

Kudos to Jill Aronoff and all of the staff that helped bring this event together. This was the third year of the event and they really set the bar high for any events like this in the future!

Join Brewers Players & Coaches for a Special “Koos for Kids” Fundraiser on June 14

Brewers bullpen catcher and Racine native Marcus Hanel has always had a desire to help children and so, about 11 years ago, he formed “Koos for Kids,” a charity focusing on helping terminally ill and disadvantaged children in the area.

Why is the organization called Koos for Kids? Koos is Marcus’ nickname, which he says, came from his mother’s German accent.

“I’d be out in the backyard and get called in, so Marcus became Mar-koos,” he said. The name Koos then just stuck.

Over the years, Koos for Kids has been able to help numerous terminally ill children by purchasing them laptops, iPads, zoo passes, airline tickets, animals…whatever it might be that makes their days a little brighter.

They’ve also purchased over 3000 winter coats for disadvantaged children in the local area, as well as organized and run the Challenger Baseball League, where over 60 children with special needs can come and be part of a team and learn the game of baseball.  And there are countless other ways they have helped the local community, thanks to the support of many businesses and caring individuals.

And, on Sunday, June 14, you have the opportunity to help support this terrific cause.

The Brewers take on the Washington Nationals at 1:10 p.m. that day and, following the game, Marcus, along with Brewers players and coaches, will be making their way to the Milwaukee County Zoo for an annual Koos for Kids event.

KOOS

Here’s a photo from last year’s event:

For just $20, you’ll receive a ticket to the zoo (good all day), zoo parking, autographs from Brewers players and the opportunity to participate in auctions and raffles. Of course proceeds from the event go to the Koos for Kids organization, where they are used to give back to the community. 

“Some of our Koos for Kids kids who are terminally get to attend the event. Last year, one of the kids, Colton, got to come on stage and meet the guys. He just recently passed away. So when you look back at the reason why you do things, that’s it. This is why we’re doing this. Just seeing kids being with their favorite Brewers, seeing them light up,” Marcus told me.

Stay tuned. Closer to the event, we’ll be following up  to let you know the anticipated attendees.

Last year’s event raised over $70,000, so the bar has been set. Help raise it: Click here to reserve your ticket today.

Why not make it a doubleheader of Brewers fun? Be sure to get your tickets to the Brewers vs. Nationals series, too.

It’s Shatterproof Day at Miller Park

The Milwaukee Brewers and Brewers Community Foundation (BCF) have once again teamed up with Shatterproof, a national organization committed to protecting our children from addiction to alcohol or other drugs and ending the stigma and suffering of those affected by this disease.

During tonight’s game at Miller Park, when the team takes on the Los Angeles Dodgers, the Brewers will celebrate “Shatterproof Day.” Representatives from Shatterproof will be at Miller Park distributing literature and raising awareness for their cause.

Shatterproof is hosting Shatterproof Challenge Rappel Milwaukee today, a fundraiser where individuals and groups raise money to be able to rappel down the Hilton City Center.

Although I was not as brave as my former co-blogger John Steinmiller was last year, and did not participate in the event, I did attend it today in order to meet with the folks from the organization and to cheer on all of the fearless individuals work to help erase the stigma of addiction and tackle the disease.

Here are a few photos from the event:

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

In addition, Brewers Community Foundation made a $10,000 contribution towards the organization in a ceremony before tonight’s game:

Shatterproof was started by Gary Mendell who lost his son, Brian, to the disease of addiction.  Following the tragic loss of his son, Gary committed himself to ensure others do not have to suffer the loss of a loved one due to the disease of addiction.  Shatterproof is in its second year, and its building a dynamic-national movement to decisively tackle the disease of addiction to alcohol and other drugs and bridge the gap in addiction resources.

MLB Launches “This” Campaign; First Brewers Spots Feature Gomez, Lohse

To kick off the 2015, Major League Baseball has launched a new marketing campaign, which is simply “THIS.”

THIS is shorthand for “This is baseball.” A THIS moment illuminates an aspect of the game in a fresh, insightful and authentic way. It draws attention to those moments that only happen in baseball, those moments that illustrate why baseball is the most entertaining game in the world.

THIS is a social prompt that tells people that there is something that they must see and moments for which there is nothing left to say but simply – look at “THIS”.

The campaign aims to highlight athletic performance of players, the culture of the game, the relationship between the players, the clubs and the fans, and all of the wonderful personalities around baseball.

While the Brew Crew was down in Arizona from Spring Training, a crew from Major League Baseball captured THIS moments with Carlos Gomez, Scooter Gennett, Will Smith and Kyle Lohse.

First, THIS: Carlos Gomez. Foul Pole.

And then, THIS: Kyle Lohse. Scooter!

This was a really fun TV shoot to be a part of. Here are some extra photos from that day:

Also, as a footnote (and because I know he’d probably want me to mention it), each of the guys attempted to hit the foul pole with a baseball during the shoot and Kyle Lohse was actually the first one to do so, something you wouldn’t expect from a pitcher.

He then had fun trying it again…. this time with a golf ball and clubs. That didn’t take long:
