Brewers Pet Calendars Have Arrived!

If you’ll recall, earlier this season, we were working with the Brewers Wives and the Wisconsin Humane Society to create a Brewers Pet Calendar, featuring photos of the players and coaches with their pets and/or animals from the Wisconsin Humane Society. We also held a contest where one winner and her dog were selected to appear in the calendar (congrats again, Jessica!)

Well, the calendars have arrived and are now available at the Brewers Team Store by Majestic at Miller Park.

Let me just say–they turned out great! All of the photos were taken by our team photographer, Scott Paulus.

Brewers Pet Calendar

 

This is an 18-month calendar, starting with September of 2014, which means you don’t have to wait until the New Year to display it.

They are $14.95 with proceeds benefiting the Wisconsin Humane Society.

Brewers Pay Visit to Wisconsin Humane Society; Participate in PAL Graduation

This afternoon, Brandon and Melissa Kintzler, Tom Gorzelanny (and his son Gavin), Ed Sedar, the Klement’s Famous Racing Sausages, and Hank the Ballpark Pup participated in the Wisconsin Humane Society PAL Graduation.

PAL stands for People and Animals Learning and is a two-week summer camp for Milwaukee children, ages 10-13. The kids are paired up to train a shelter dogs over the course of the camp and take part in other confidence-building and violence prevention activities. Since the program began in 1993, there have been over 750 graduates from the program. (For more information, click here.)

At today’s graduation, the kids demonstrated their new dog-handling skills and received their diplomas.

Here are a few fun photos from the day:

Following the graduation, the Brewers contingent was given a behind-the-scenes tour of the facility by Anne Reed, President & CEO of the Wisconsin Humane Society. Here are a few more photos from that tour, including the Wildlife Rehabilitation Center:

Congratulations once again to the PAL graduates and thank you to the Wisconsin Humane Society for all of the good you do in the community!

Hank the #BallparkPup to Make Meet & Greet Appearance at Next Tuesday’s Game

By popular demand, America’s favorite Ballpark Pup is making an encore appearance at Miller Park.

After meeting more than 700 fans for photos in a public appearance during the May 14 game, Hank, the Ballpark Pup, returns to the stage on Tuesday, June 24 as the Brewers take on the Washington Nationals at 7:10 pm.

Hank has quietly appeared at several games this year, but he has only made two public appearances at Miller Park since arriving in Milwaukee in March.

Hank’s return will come in the bottom of the 5th inning of the Brewers vs. Nationals game. For one inning, he will appear on the Field Level Concourse in the right field corner. Fans are welcome to visit and take photos of Milwaukee’s most famous pup with his very own “Hank House.”

Fans will have an opportunity to make a voluntary donation to the Wisconsin Humane Society during Hank’s appearance.

 

6/24 Update: Hundreds of fans lined up to see Hank tonight, it seems he is just as “pup”ular as ever!

Behind the Scenes at the Brewers Pet Calendar Photo Shoot

Last week, we let the “cat out of the bag” that we’re creating a Brewers Pet Calendar, featuring photos of the players and coaches with their pets and/or animals from the Wisconsin Humane Society, with a portion of the proceeds benefiting the organization.

Today, we held the first photo shoot for the piece, which is due out later this season, and we thought we’d share a few fun photos with you. All photos for the calendar will be taken by Brewers photographer Scott Paulus[Note: All of the dogs at today's photo shoot are dogs that are currently up for adoption at the Wisconsin Humane Society.]

We also held a contest for one lucky fan and his/her dog to be included in the calendar alongside Hank. Stay tuned for more details on the winner and when the finished piece will be for sale.

Cheers!

Everyone Loves Hank: #BallparkPup Transcends Team Allegiances

As Brewers fans, you know the heartwarming “tail” well by now.

Hank, the little stray pup who wandered into Brewers Spring Training Camp in Phoenix, Arizona, on February 17, the day of the first workout for pitchers and catchers, quickly captured the hearts of Brewers fans, as well as pet-lovers across the world.

Hank’s story has blurred the lines of team allegiance, with fans of other teams tuning in for updates on the pup. And his story has even transcended the sport itself. We can’t tell you how many comments and letters we’ve received from people who say they don’t even follow baseball, but they love dogs, or pets in general, and can’t help but follow Hank.

Even players from other teams have fallen for Hank, as Diamondbacks pitcher Brandon McCarthy tweeted this during Spring Training:

And Brandon has continued to follow Hank’s story into the season:

McCarthy Tweet

Brandon and his wife, Amanda, are dog lovers and have a 6-year-old Westie, a small white pup of their own, named Hobbes:

We can see a resemblance to Hank and why his story has caught their attention.

A series of tweets was exchanged between Brandon, Amanda and the Club…

Which led to arranging a meeting between Brandon and Hank today before batting practice at Miller Park:

“This dog is awesome. I get to meet a dog on the road, which is great anytime you have to leave your dog at home. There should be more dogs on the road, more dogs in public to play with, so having one on a baseball field combines some of my favorite things,” Brandon said.

Watch the full interview, here:

Yes, it was clear that Brandon and Hank enjoyed each other’s company, but don’t worry Brewers fans, it is clear where Hank’s allegiance rests.

Home Away From Home: The “Hank House” to Debut at Miller Park Today

Hank, the “Ballpark Pup,” is getting a home at Miller Park.  The “Hank House,” a roomy, one bedroom Cape Cod-style dwelling, debuted today as the Crew opens a six-game homestand against the San Diego Padres at 7:10 p.m.

As you can see, the “Hank House” features a mini-slide and the #BallparkPup hashtag.

It will be positioned at “The Point” in centerfield for tonight’s game and as a mobile home, it will move around the ballpark throughout the season.  When Hank is at Miller Park, it will be his home and used for photo opportunities and appearances.

We think he likes it!
