Today, we were proud to honor our 2013 Brewers MLB Fan Cave Fandidates, Peter Gourlie and Kevin Kimmes.
Although they were ultimately not chosen to enter the MLB Fan Cave, Peter and Kevin represented us well in the contestant search this spring and we’re very proud that we have such dedicated Brewers fans.
To honor them and thank them for their hard work and dedication, we brought them out to throw ceremonial first pitches prior to the Brewers vs. Cardinals game today.
Brewers pitcher Brandon Kintzler, who played a role in Pete’s original Fan Cave submission video, was on hand, along with pitcher John Axford, to catch those pitches.
Take a look at the gallery below for some photos from today:
Thanks again, Pete & Kevin! It was a pleasure getting to know you this year and I look forward to staying in touch!
Next Monday, the red-hot Brew Crew returns home for the start of our ever-popular 5-County, 5-Day Celebration.
From Monday, April 29-Friday, May 3, residents of Milwaukee, Ozaukee, Racine, Washington, and Waukesha Counties can purchase half-price tickets for all reserved seats (except the Miller Lite Beerpen, All-Inclusive Areas and the $1 Uecker Seats).
And, I was looking ahead to next week’s weather forecast and what’s that number I see there for Tuesday? 71?!? Perfect weather to get out of your house and into ours!

Wrapping up the rest of the homestand, we’ve got a 3:05pm start vs. the Cardinals on Saturday, May 4 and then Sunday, May 5 is Corey Hart Bobblehead Day, presented by Kwik Trip. You’ll want to get your tickets early to score that, too!
In case you’re wondering about his uniform, this collectible features Hart in a 1913 Brewers uniform, honoring the 100th Anniversary of that team’s first American Association Championship. We’ll be paying tribute to the 1913 Minor League Milwaukee Brewers of the American Association on that day as well. Both the Brewers and Cardinals will wear throwback uniforms from the 1913 season. The American Association Brewers, who played from 1902-52, won their first league championship in 1913. Overall, they won eight pennants during their 51 seasons of existence.
Hope to see you out here next week!
If you didn’t make it out to Miller Park for Games 1 or 2 of the NLCS, you’ll want to make sure you come out to visit the Brewers Team Store by Majestic sometime this week to get all of your NLCS gear!

For all of you pin collectors out there, we also got in a very nice 2011 National League Central Division Champions pin, which retails for $6:
