Brewers On Deck Wrap-Up

Thank you to the nearly 12,000 fans who streamed through the doors of the Wisconsin Center on Sunday for Brewers On Deck!

From autographs, photographs and interviews to game shows, merchandise and kids activities there was something for everyone and so much going on it was almost dizzying at times.

For me personally, it was a ton of fun working over at the Social Media Stage. I asked you to stop by, check it out and say hello and you did! We had some great crowds and I enjoyed meeting a lot of my Twitter buddies in person.

We’ve put some highlights from that stage up on brewers.com/ondeck.

There, you’ll find:

Photobombs from Carlos Gomez and Gerardo Parra:

Clips from “Heads Up” with Mike Fiers and Jimmy Nelson*:

*Sorry, guys, we had trouble with the video files from Rob Wooten & Tyler Thornburg‘s games.

#MattChat60 with Matt Clark:

and Jim Henderson’s interview of new Brewers pitcher Corey Knebel:

In addition to those activities, we also had pitchers Jeremy Jeffress and Michael Blazek stop by for some social fun and games. There was Twitter Trivia, :15 of Favorites and Selfies in Seconds:

The Social Media Stage sure kept us busy, but we did find time to cover the rest of the event.

Here are some highlights that we posted on social media during the day:

BREWERS ON DECK TO INCLUDE OVER 50 PLAYERS, COACHES, BROADCASTERS & ALUMNI

Nearly 50 Milwaukee Brewers players plus a host of alumni, coaches, front office executives and broadcasters are scheduled to participate in Brewers On Deck, which is set to take place on Sunday, January 25 from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. at the Wisconsin Center.

Advance tickets are $15 for adults and $9 for children 14 and under.  Tickets on the day of the event are $20 for adults and $15 for children 14 and under.  A portion of the proceeds from Brewers On Deck will benefit Brewers Community Foundation. Tickets may be purchased at the Miller Park ticket office, by calling the Brewers ticket office at 414-902-4000, or online at brewers.com/ondeck.

This year the event will feature a community book drive that will help support Next Door’s Books for Kids program. The goal of the Books for Kids campaign is to help all children in Milwaukee’s central city, regardless of their family income or education levels, have books they can call their own. Local author Marla McKenna will help host the event. Fans are encouraged to bring new or gently used children’s books to donate. In appreciation for their contribution, fans who donate a book will receive a free copy of McKenna’s newest publication, “Mom’s Big Catch,” a story based upon events that took place at Miller Park.

Once again food donations will be accepted through Hunger Task Force.  Donations can be dropped off at two main entrances to the Wisconsin Center, located at 4th Street and Wisconsin Avenue, and 4th Street and Wells Street.

Brewers On Deck will feature a number of activities for the entire family.  Autographs and photos from Brewers players, coaches and alumni; interactive games in the Kids Area; Q&A sessions and game shows with Brewers players, coaches and broadcasters; vendor booths with baseball memorabilia; Brewers Community Foundation’s Treasure Hunt, a 50/50 raffle, live auction and many other activities will all be a part of Brewers On Deck.

Details regarding autographs include the following:  Recipients of “PREMIER” autographs (players to be announced next week) will be chosen through a random selection process. Each fan in attendance will receive one Premier Entry sheet which may be redeemed at the Random Selection area outside the Main Exhibit Hall of the Wisconsin Center District.  The Premier Entry sheet will be exchanged for a numbered coupon to be entered into the random selection process for any one of the select Brewers players.  Coupon distribution will be available at 8 a.m. the day of the event and will continue up to an hour before each designated autograph session.   There is no cost for coupons to enter the random selection process; however, those holding winning coupons must pay $10 at the respective autograph stage to collect their player signature.  There will be 250 winners for each of the autograph sessions.  The winning ticket numbers will be posted at the designated autograph stage no less than 30 minutes prior to each player’s session.

Players and staff not included in the PREMIER autograph list will not use the random selection process. Each of these players will sign 250 autographs at prices ranging from free to $10. A schedule of players, their session times, and distribution info will be posted next week.  The autograph opportunities are for signatures on photo cards provided by the team; the Brewers cannot guarantee that any player will sign other memorabilia.  For additional information, visit Brewers.com/ondeck.

Autograph proceeds benefit Brewers Community Foundation.  Please note that cash is the only acceptable form of payment for autographs. The Brewers cannot guarantee that any player will sign other memorabilia, and personalization of items is solely up to the discretion of each player.

A detailed schedule of all Brewers On Deck events will be released next week.

Zachary Sprader Interviews Carlos Gomez

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.

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:

#BrewersSocial

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:

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.

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.

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.

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.
