Brewers fans have the well-earned reputation for filling the ballot boxes with All-Star votes for Milwaukee Brewers players year in and year out. With at least one Brewers player elected to start in five of the last six All-Star Games since 2007, Milwaukee fans demonstrated that it doesn’t take the largest market to be heard as they voted for their favorite Brewers in almost unheard of numbers.
And while it may still be April, it’s time to ramp up and Vote Brewers! Sure it is early, but why can’t we use that time to get ahead in the voting? The Brewers are currently enjoying a nice win streak and this is the time to beat the early rush on voting.
This season, eight Milwaukee Brewers players are featured on the ballot for the 84th Major League Baseball All-Star Game to be held on Tuesday, July 16 at Citi Field in New York City (great All-Star logo again this year by the way, MLB has been knocking it out of the park in recent years with great All-Star logos). Brewers fans will again have the opportunity to show their overwhelming fan support by helping decide which players will be named to the Midsummer Classic through the 2013 MLB In-Stadium All-Star Balloting Program presented by Firestone and the 2013 All-Star Game MLB.com Ballot presented by freecreditscore.com.
Brewers players on this year’s All-Star ballot include C Jonathan Lucroy, 1B Corey Hart, 2B Rickie Weeks, 3B Aramis Ramirez, SS Jean Segura, OF Ryan Braun, OF Carlos Gomez and OF Norichika Aoki.
At Brewers.com, all fans voting 21 or more times for their favorite Brewers will be entered into a drawing to win Ryan Braun’s Miller Park Suite for a night, complete with tickets, food and a personal visit from the 2011 National League MVP. There is a maximum of 25 votes per email address, but new for 2013, fans can cast 10 extra votes by logging in with or registering for an MLB.com account. More information and rules may be found at brewers.com. Additionally, fans voting online will be eligible to purchase Field Outfield, Club Outfield and Terrace Box seats for select Brewers games at a savings of up to 50% (details available after voting at Brewers.com).
Those visiting Miller Park are encouraged to vote early and often via paper ballot at the All-Star Polling District, set up during Brewers home games along the first base concourse. In-park balloting at Miller Park begins on Monday, April 29 and continues through Friday, June 21, comprising 25 home dates. The Vote Brewers! campaign will feature event staff decked out at home games in promotional t-shirts, and signage along the Miller Park fascia and behind the plate. In addition, media partners FS Wisconsin and Newsradio 620 WTMJ will be promoting the initiative on broadcasts, and the World Famous Klement’s Racing Sausages will help distribute voting information around the city. There will also be voting parties staged during the balloting period.
With every 10 ballots turned in to the All-Star Polling District, fans will receive one raffle ticket that will enter them in a drawing for the opportunity to win a collector’s item daily, ranging from game-used memorabilia to player autographs. A drawing will be held during every home game through June 21 and the winning ticket will be announced during the game. Rules will be available at the Polling District.
Ryan Braun narrowly missed being elected a starter for the 2012 MLB All-Star Game after finishing fourth in voting among National League outfielders to Matt Kemp of the Los Angeles Dodgers by just over 100,000 votes. Braun was later named a starter to replace the injured Kemp.
In 2011, Braun led National League outfielders in voting for the fourth straight season and led all NL players in voting for the first time (5,928,004). He is the only Brewers player to ever be elected to start in four consecutive All-Star Games (did not play in 2011 due to injury). Rickie Weeks was selected to his first All-Star Game as the NL’s starting second baseman and Prince Fielder started and made his third All-Star appearance in 2011. In 2010, Braun and Corey Hart started for the Brewers (Hart was named as a starter after an injury to Atlanta’s Jason Heyward).
In 2009, Braun and Fielder joined Trevor Hoffman as All-Stars. In addition to Braun in 2008, Hart was named that year to the National League All-Star team via the Monster All-Star Final Vote. In 2007, Fielder received the second-most votes in the National League en route to his first career All-Star team, becoming the first Brewers player to be voted to the All-Star Game since Paul Molitor was selected at third base in 1988. A complete list of All-Stars in franchise history can be found on page 277 of the 2013 Brewers media guide.
The 2013 American League and National League All-Star Teams will be unveiled on Sunday, July 7 on the 2013 MLB All-Star Game Selection Show on TBS. Both the National League and American League teams will have eight fan-elected starters. The pitchers and reserves for both will be determined through a combination of “Player Ballot” choices and selections made by the two All-Star managers.
Fans can vote for the Major League All-Stars online at brewers.com through Thursday, July 4 at 10:59 p.m. CT.
The Brewers are hot. Seven wins in a row overall including sweeps of the Giants and Cubs at Miller Park last week have the Brewers with an overall record of 9-8 after a 2-8 start.
With this current hot streak, Major League Baseball recognized the personal performance of Carlos Gomez, naming him National League Player of the Week for April 15 – 21. During that six-game stretch, Gomez hit .500 (9-for-18) with two home runs and three RBI. He extended his streak of three-hit games to three as he recorded three hits in games on April 16 and 17 against the Giants. Yesterday, he recorded his 500th career hit with a single off Scott Feldman.
Did we mention that Gomez also defied the laws of physics by somehow getting out of the way of a Ryan Braun water shower? This photo definitely went viral over the week and was a great moment caught by AP photographer Morry Gash.
Overall this season, Gomez is hitting .300 with two home runs and five RBI.
Congratulations to Gomez on being named NL Player of the Week!
How does that song go? Baseball, hot dogs, shaving cream pie…. hmm… I’m not sure that’s it, but this week, the Crew sure has had some fun in the dugout after their victories, celebrating with post-game antics.
With the Crew going for 7 in a row today, they sure have made the game look as easy as, well… pie this week!
Take a look at the gifs and an amazing photo from this homestand.
After last night’s exciting win over the Cubs, Yovani Gallardo, Jonathan Lucroy, Carlos Gomez, Ryan Braun, Dave Nelson, my colleagues and I were all on hand early this morning for a special Brewers Season Seat Holder event for those who paid for their 2013 season tickets in full by the November 15 early renewal deadline.
Here are some photos from this fun event.
It’s always a pleasure to get to meet so many of our most loyal fans; we hope you had a wonderful time!
Brewers fans will have plenty of reason to watch the World Baseball Classic as 14 players from the Brewers organization are scheduled to take part. The full rosters were announced today. Here is a list of Brewers players on WBC rosters:
The Brewers will even be represented behind the scenes during the World Baseball Classic. In addition to the players on the field, Brewers Visiting Clubhouse Manager Phil Rozewicz will serve as clubhouse manager for the Dominican Republic team and Brewers Vice President – Communications Tyler Barnes will serve as a media liaison for games played at Marlins Park in Miami.
KEY DATES IN THE WORLD BASEBALL CLASSIC FOR BREWERS FANS
Tuesday, March 5; Brewers vs. Team Canada – Maryvale Baseball Park, 1:05 p.m. (Arizona Time); 2:05 p.m. (Milwaukee Time)
In an exhibition game during the exhibition season, the Brewers squad will take on the Canadian team at Maryvale Baseball Park. There are a lot of Canadian connections in the Brewers organization. Doug Melvin and Gord Ash are both natives along with a number of players on the Brewers roster. Personally, I’m a fan of “Oh Canada” and can’t wait to hear that prior to the game. It will also be interesting to see John Axford, Taylor Green and Jim Henderson suit up in the visiting clubhouse in Team Canada uniforms against their Brewers teammates (I wonder if they will pop in and say hi!?). Rene Tosoni, a name that might not be familiar with most Brewers fans, was signed to a minor league contract by the Brewers recently. The outfielder played with the Minnesota Twins last season.
Friday, March 8; Spain at Puerto Rico – Hiram Bithorn Stadium, San Juan Puerto Rico, 4:30 p.m. (Milwaukee Time)
Hiram Burgos and Martin Maldonado make their WBC debut for Puerto Rico in their native country.
Friday, March 8, Mexico at United States – Chase Field, Phoenix Arizona, 7:00 p.m. (Arizona Time); 8:00 p.m. (Milwaukee Time)
For Brewers fans in Arizona for Spring Training, this is going to be a great day. Catch the Brewers and Rangers at 1 p.m. in Maryvale and then head downtown to Chase Field to see Ryan Braun, Jonathan Lucroy and Team USA take on Marco Estrada, Yovani Gallardo and Team Mexico.
If you are heading to Arizona for Spring Training to see the Brewers, I would highly recommend fitting in a WBC game into your itinerary. It is a fun atmosphere and a chance to see some players you might not normally see. In addition to Chase Field, games will also be held at Salt River Field at Talking Stick.

Mark your calendars for Sunday, June 9 when the Brewers take on the Philadelphia Phillies at Miller Park—it’s Carlos Gomez bobblehead day, presented by Time Warner Cable!
This will be the first Brewers bobblehead featuring Brewers outfielder Carlos Gomez and he’ll be wearing a Cerveceros uniform. (“Cerveceros” is the Spanish translation for Brewers and the team has worn Cerveceros uniforms during our Cerveceros Day celebration during each of the last seven seasons.)
Individual tickets will go on sale in February, but if you’d like to secure your tickets early, the Carlos Gomez bobblehead is included in the following ticket packages:

Since the 2011 season ended, Mike Vassallo, Ken Spindler and I have worked many long hours on the 2012 Brewers Media Guide. It is quite the process and we are finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel as we officially hand it over to Mario Ziino of Delzer Lithograph on Wednesday morning.
One of the things that really gets people talking about the guide every year is the cover. Normally, we keep the cover under wraps until the first shipment of guides arrives at Spring Training camp in Phoenix, but this year we decided to release it a little early.
The cover is a challenging part of the guide because the guide is with you for the entire season. You want it to symbolize the 2012 season, but in our case, you also want to remember the good things that happened in 2011.
We feel this year’s cover captured a very special moment in Brewers history. After Nyjer Morgan’s game-winning hit in Game 5 of the NLDS, Miller Park was up for grabs. Carlos Gomez, who scored the game-winning run, and Ryan Braun are also featured on the cover as they rushed to congratulate Morgan and celebrate the moment. The photo captures the emotion (and chaos) of that moment, the taste of victory after a long season of hard work and the pride that every Brewers fan can share in their team. Anyone who was at Miller Park that October night will surely be able to revisit that amazing moment when looking at this cover.
We are very pleased with the way the cover turned out and can’t wait to get our hands on the finished product at the end of the month. If you want to get your hands on a Brewers 2012 Media Guide, they will be available at the Brewers Team Store by Majestic at Miller Park for $15. The guides should arrive in mid-March. An online PDF version of the guide will also be available in the next two weeks (I will post a link on the blog for that when available).
What are your thoughts on the cover? Do you like it? Do you not like it (no worries, I won’t take offense!)? Will you buy a media guide this year? Let us know by giving your comments at the end of the blog.
It might seem a little early to start thinking about the All-Star Game with only two weeks of the season behind us, but sure enough, balloting for the 2010 MLB All-Star Game begins online today and at Miller Park on Saturday.
Over the past three seasons, Brewers fans filled the ballot boxes with All-Star votes for their favorite Milwaukee Brewers players.
Last year, Ryan Braun was the top vote-getter among outfielders with 4,138,599 votes making him a starter in the Midsummer Classic for the second consecutive season. The first reader to e-mail me with the last Brewers player to start in consecutive All-Star Games prior to Braun will receive a Vote Brewers! T-shirt.
In 2008, the impact of the “Vote Brewers!” campaign was heard and seen throughout Major League Baseball. Braun was voted to the game with the third-highest vote total of anyone in Major League Baseball with 3,835,890 votes. He also became the first Brewers outfielder to be selected by fan balloting. Additionally, Corey Hart was named to the National League All-Star team via the Monster All-Star Final Vote. Remember the “I Hart NY” campaign? That was a fun couple of days trying to do everything we could to get Corey into the game.
In 2007, Prince Fielder received the second-most votes in the National League en route to his first career All-Star team, becoming the first Brewers player to be voted to the All-Star game since Paul Molitor was selected at third base in 1988.
Not only was it a reflection of the way the Brewers have been performing on the field–all three players deserved their spots on the All-Star team–but it also showed the loyalty Brewers fans have for their players. It’s always great to see the Brewers represented in that way on a national stage like the All-Star Game.
This season, eight Milwaukee Brewers players are featured on the ballot for the 81st Major League Baseball All-Star Game, to be held on Tuesday, July 13 at Angel Stadium of Anaheim in Anaheim, Calif. Joining Braun and Fielder on this year’s ballot are: 2B Rickie Weeks, SS Alcides Escobar, 3B Casey McGehee, C Gregg Zaun, OF Jim Edmonds and OF Carlos Gomez.
Brewers fans will again have the opportunity to show their overwhelming fan support by helping to decide which players will be named to the Midsummer Classic through the 2010 MLB In-Stadium Firestone All-Star Balloting Program and the 2010 All-Star Game MLB.com Ballot Sponsored by Sprint.
The online ballot is now available at brewers.com and beginning Saturday, fans will be able to vote through in-park balloting at Miller Park. Fans can vote for the Major League All-Stars online at brewers.com through Thursday, July 1 at 10:59 CT. In-park balloting at Miller Park will continue through Sunday, June 13, comprising 25 home dates. In-stadium balloting for every Major League team will consist of 25 home games.
At brewers.com, all fans voting 25 times for their favorite Brewers will be entered into a drawing to win Ryan Braun’s Miller Park suite for a night, complete with tickets, food and a personal visit from the young Brewers slugger. More details and rules may be found at brewers.com. Additionally, 25 online votes will unlock a special code that will be good for discounted tickets to select games at Miller Park.
You can use those tickets to come out to the ballpark and fill out paper ballots with a chance to win some pretty great prizes at the All-Star Polling District, set up during Brewers home games along the first base concourse.
With every ten ballots turned in to the All-Star Polling District, fans will receive one raffle ticket that will enter them in a drawing for the opportunity to win a collector’s item daily, ranging from game-used memorabilia to player autographs. A drawing will be held during every home game through June 13 and the winning ticket will be announced during the game. Rules will be available at the Polling District.
The 2010 American League and National League All-Star Teams will be announced on Sunday, July 4th on the 2010 MLB All-Star Game Selection Show on TBS. Both the National League and American League teams will have eight fan-elected starters. The pitchers and reserves for both will be determined through a combination of “Player Ballot” choices and selections made by the two All-Star managers.
Follow the John and Cait blog as we will have special features on all eight Brewers All-Star candidates throughout the Vote Brewers! 2010 Campaign.
The Brewers annual fan fest, Brewers On Deck, will take place this Sunday, January 31, but today, John and Cait have a sneak preview of all the fun that is in store for you! We are going to throw a lot at you in this preview and this map will help you plan your afternoon at the event.
First of all, this year’s Brewers On Deck is bigger and better than ever. The event has taken many forms since it first began at Brookfield Square Mall in 2004. Each year, we learn a little more and try to grow the event to make it bigger and better than even before. Brewers Senior Director of Entertainment and Broadcasting, Aleta Mercer has again been in charge of organizing this event that has really turned into something no Brewers fan will want to miss.
Last year was the first year that the event was held at the Midwest Airlines Center in downtown Milwaukee. This year, we’re returning to the same location, but we have two times the space to work with and more attractions to entertain fans once they get in the door.
Brewers On Deck will feature a number of activities for the entire family. There will be autographs and photos from Brewers players and coaches, interactive games and clinics for kids in the Associated Bank Kids Zone, Q&A sessions and game shows with Brewers players, coaches and broadcasters, the latest Brewers merchandise (including 40th Anniversary items), and much, much, more.
First of all, everybody loves autographs and the chance to rub elbows with players and coaches from the 2010 team.
With 30 players scheduled to sign at the event, you’ll have lots of choices. Welcome back some of your favorites, like Prince Fielder or Ryan Braun. Get a jumpstart on the 40th Anniversary Season by purchasing some of the new merchandise that will be available at the event and getting it signed by Brewers great and Hall of Famer Robin Yount. Or, take the opportunity to add new Brewers like Randy Wolf, Gregg Zaun, LaTroy Hawkins or Carlos Gomez to your autograph collection.
Autograph sessions will be staggered during the event, and autograph tickets–ranging from free to $25 each–will be available on the day of the event only. There will be 250 autograph coupons available for each player at the event, and coupons will be distributed one hour prior to each autograph session, so make sure you get there early!
Dave Bush signs autographs for fans at Brewers On Deck 2009.
The doors to the Midwest Airlines Center open at 10 a.m. and the first autograph sessions begin at 11 a.m. A good tip would be to buy your On Deck tickets in advance if you want to get in an autograph line early. Brewers coaches will be signing free autographs following their Q&A session with fans and select Brewers alumni will also sign free following clinics in the Little League diamond.
It is important to note that cash will be the only form of payment accepted at the pay stations in the autograph area, so make sure you hit up an ATM on your way downtown (there will also be ATMs inside the Midwest Airlines Center). Proceeds from the autographs will go to Brewers Charities and other charitable causes. A full autograph schedule can be found here.
The photo sessions made available to fans are also a great way to capture a great memory with your favorite Brewer. A group of 33 Brewers players, alumni and coaches will appear at three photo stations scattered throughout the afternoon in half hour segments. The photos are free of charge. We would recommend bringing your own camera to take pictures. The first session will start at 11 a.m. and the last session will start at 3:30 p.m.
Mitch Stetter poses with fans at Brewers On Deck 2009 in the Photo Area.
Three stages will be set up throughout the convention hall, featuring programming and other activities for fans throughout the day.
The Brewers Main Stage will feature various question and answer sessions with top Brewers baseball executives, a pair of game shows featuring players and alumni (“Who Wants to Be A Brewer?” and “Brewers vs. Alumni Feud”), a fashion show showcasing the latest Brewers gear and a roundtable discussion with members of the Milwaukee media who cover the team on a regular basis. The game shows were definitely hits at last year’s “Bob Uecker’s Winter Warm Up” and there are some new surprises in store for 2010.
Fans and local media will be introduced to Brewers outfielder Carlos Gomez and reintroduced to newly acquired lefty Doug Davis at a press conference scheduled for 1:30 p.m. on the Main Stage.
The Brewers Interactive Stage will feature the Brewers Anthem Challenge with fans vying for an opportunity to sing the National Anthem at Miller Park, so start practicing hitting those high notes! Also scheduled for the Brewers Interactive Stage is a Q&A session with the Brewers Player Development and Scouting staff as well as a live web chat on brewers.com with Gregg Zaun, Manny Parra and Carlos Villanueva.
The Newsradio 620 WTMJ stage will broadcast live from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. and will feature interviews with Brewers players and coaches. If you are a Brewers fan who cannot make Sunday’s event, the web chat and radio broadcast are two fantastic ways to interact and participate from home.
All proceeds from the event benefit Brewers Charities and other charitable causes, so make sure you stop by the Brewers Charities area at On Deck. This year, they’re hosting a Treasure Hunt, which will feature some hard to find Brewers items for sale. Additionally, Brewers Charities will be collecting food to be donated to the Hunger Task Force of Milwaukee. Collection barrels will be set up at the Brewers Charities area in the Midwest Airlines Center, so don’t forget to bring your non-perishable food items with you to On Deck.
Fans will also be able to take part in the Brewers On Deck Scavenger Hunt. If you can locate the four player photos placed strategically around the venue at different attractions, you will uncover a special promotional code that will allow you to purchase tickets online for select Brewers games at a special 50% savings.
To help celebrate the 40th Anniversary season in 2010, fans can visit the Brewers Museum at On Deck to relive some Brewers moments of the past. Watch some of the best plays in team history, check out every team photo in team history, read newspapers from some of the most historic moments in team history and check out some pretty neat artifacts from 1970 through today.
In addition to all of these activities, kids will also have a great time at the batting cages or speed pitch and will be able to stay active in the Home Run Fitness area. Fans can also visit with Brewers sponsors, check out sports memorabilia from collectors in the memorabilia area, purchase a Brewers Kids Club Membership Kit ($25), and pick up Season and Group Ticket information.
There will be so much to do on Sunday, it is hard to list everything. Some other interesting attractions that we want you to check out are displays from four of the Brewers minor league affiliates and the FS Wisconsin stage where fans are offered a chance to be a sports announcer at the FS Wisconsin Sports Desk.
We’re excited that the event is coming up so soon, not only because a great time will be had by all, but also because it means that the start of the baseball season is that much closer. Something comforting to think about on a cold, January day. If you cannot make the event, we will have a full review here and on brewers.com.
