On Thursday, the Milwaukee Bucks selected Duke forward Jabari Parker with the No. 2 pick in the 2014 NBA Draft; yesterday he made his first public appearance, greeting fans at the Milwaukee Public Market and then at Summerfest; and today, he visited Miller Park, where threw out the ceremonial first pitch prior to today’s game vs. the Colorado Rockies.
He’s certainly wasted no time immersing himself in the Milwaukee culture and he seems to be having a lot of fun along the way. Here are some photos and videos of Jabari’s afternoon here at the ballpark:
Welcome to Milwaukee, Jabari!
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!
