This week we’re unveiling the Brewers #20in15—20 All-Fan Giveaways during the 2015 season!
If you followed along at brewers.com/allfans and on our social media sites so far this week, then you already know that so far, our Bobblehead lineup includes Rob Deer, Wily Peralta, BobbleHank and Commissioner Selig.
And this morning, we revealed that in 2015, Carlos Gomez will once again be featured as a Brewers Bobblehead, this time in his 2014 All-Star Jersey. You can get yours on Sunday, June 14 as the Crew takes on the Washington Nationals.
If you don’t win, don’t worry. Individual tickets will go on sale in spring. However, if you’d like to secure your tickets for this game early, the Gomez bobblehead is included in select season ticket packages which are on sale now.
Be sure to check back in the coming months as we also unveil the image of the actual bobblehead when we get it!
Stay tuned to the blog, our social channels and brewers.com/allfans all week as we unveil more of the #20in15!
Magician Justin Sight stopped by the Brewers Clubhouse recently, with a few tricks up his sleeve–especially for Carlos Gomez–in this spot from ESPN.
Earlier this season, thanks to Make-A-Wish Wisconsin, we held Zachary Sprader Wish Day at Miller Park. Zachary came out to Miller Park for a game and received the VIP treatment with a behind-the-scenes tour of the clubhouse, the chance to meet with several Brewers players & coaches and the opportunity to meet Bob Uecker in the his radio booth.
A huge fan of the Brewers, that was truly Zachary’s wish come true. And today, he had another cool experience–the chance to interview Carlos Gomez, thanks to Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin. Check it out here:
Great job, Zachary–and thank you for being such a loyal fan. We’re big fans of you, too.
In the latest update for the “We Energies High-Energy Player of the Year” award, Brewers center fielder Carlos Gomez remains in first place with 32 percent of the votes, just ahead of catcher Jonathan Lucroy, who has 31 percent of the votes. Lucroy has significantly closed the gap after trailing Gomez by 12 percent in last month’s voting results. Second baseman Scooter Gennett surpassed outfielder Ryan Braun to sit comfortably in third place with 14 percent of the votes.
Fans currently have the opportunity to vote for the Brewers player who they believe best personifies the characteristics of hard work and an aggressive approach to playing the game. Fans can vote by visiting Brewers.com/WeEnergies until September 7. Additionally, fans may cast their votes via text message at designated Brewers home games, and local media will have the opportunity to participate via an emailed ballot. Votes from fans, media and We Energies will be combined to determine the winner.
Each fan voting online as a part of the “We Energies High-Energy Player of the Year” promotion will be entered to win a Brewers VIP package. The winner will be randomly selected to receive Field Diamond Box tickets for six guests and will participate in a pre-game ceremony on the field when the Brewers take on the Chicago Cubs on Friday, September 26. The winner will also receive an autographed jersey signed by the High-Energy Player of the Year, the opportunity to throw out a ceremonial first pitch and the use of a Club Level suite for a 2015 Brewers home game.
Fans can check results regularly as voting totals will be announced on a monthly basis. Fifty-two lucky fans will also win four Loge Outfield tickets for a Brewers home game between June 1 and September 28.
Carlos Gomez won the award in 2013. Other past winners include Ryan Braun (2008 and 2012) Nyjer Morgan (2011), Rickie Weeks (2010), Craig Counsell (2009), Prince Fielder (2007) and Bill Hall (2006). For more information, please visit Brewers.com/WeEnergies.
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.
As you know, the “Ice Bucket Challenge,” an initiative started to raise awareness and funds to help strike out ALS, has been sweeping the globe and has passed through the Brewers Clubhouse along the way.
Ryan Braun completed the challenge last Saturday and in turn tagged teammates Jonathan Lucroy, Kyle Lohse, and Carlos Gomez. Padres Manager Bud Black issued the challenge to Brewers Manager Ron Roenicke, along with Angels Manager Mike Scioscia, and Rays Manager Joe Maddon and Ron completed the challenge yesterday.
And it continues to spread, not only in the Clubhouse, but throughout the organization.
Last week, we announced that Brewers Community Foundation donated $5000 to ALSA Wisconsin on behalf of the Brewers and today, both Brewers Director of Media Relations, Mike Vassallo, and I completed challenges issued to us personally and issued challenges of our own:
But the biggest challenge we can issue is to simply join us in fighting ALS, whether you get wet or not.
ALS, or Lou Gehrig’s disease, is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. 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.
According to The Wall Street Journal, as of Thursday, the ALS Association had raised $7.6 million in donations in two weeks, compared with $1.4 million raised during the same two-week period last year. In addition, over 145,900 new donors have stepped up to the plate to help strike out ALS.
