Brewers Sign Jerry DeQuardo to Contract

In January, the Brewers began their “Fan-Tastic Forty” promotion and awarded prizes for 40 consecutive days to various Season Seat Holders who renewed their ticket packages. For the third consecutive year, the team offered a variety of unique prizes and experiences during a 40-day period, including the Welcome to the Big Leagues prize. For this experience, the winner signs a one-day Major League contract which comes with a full uniform plus one day’s pay at the MLB minimum salary ($2,677.60).

Jerry DeQuardo, a Brewers Season Seat Holder since 1978, won the Welcome to the Big Leagues prize and was introduced to the media today.

“This has been a wonderful experience,” DeQuardo said.  “I think this might be one of the best days of my life.  I keep wanting to pinch myself it has been so great.”

He grew up in Milwaukee and currently resides in Brookfield. Jerry played second base for the Messmer High School baseball team and served as a bat boy and clubhouse staffer for the Milwaukee Braves from 1958 – 1960.  His all-time favorite players are Eddie Matthews and Stan Musial. Currently, he owns his own insurance firm, DeQuardo Insurance in Brookfield.

“I’ve been to hundreds and hundreds of games, I’ve even caught a few foul balls,” DeQuardo said.

In addition to the salary and uniform, DeQuardo will be able to park in the VIP lot before tonight’s game vs. the Oakland Athletics, receive fifty baseball cards with his likeness, a DVD of the highlight video shown at the press conference, a framed last page of his contract and throw out the first pitch before the game.

“I measured 60 feet, 6 inches out in my driveway.  I have practiced, I hope I don’t throw my arm out!” he said.

DeQuardo also was interviewed for MLB Network’s popular afternoon show “Intentional Talk” hosted by Chris Rose and Kevin Millar.  During the interview, Brewers relievers Brandon Kintzler and Donovan Hand walked over and congratulated DeQuardo on joining the team.

“This definitely makes being a Brewers season seatholder worthwhile,” DeQuardo said.
