If you’ll notice, the Majestic player name and number tees have been updated for 2014. Look closely and you’ll see that the lettering/numbering on the front and back has a real “jersey” look and feel to it:
This new style of the tees was available beginning at Brewers On Deck; the Team Store currently has players such as Ryan Braun, Khris Davis, Carlos Gomez, Jonathan Lucroy and Jean Segura in stock with new additions (such as Garza, which came today) arriving over the next few weeks leading up to Opening Day.

The day the All-Star Teams are selected is always an exciting day around the ballpark. There is always a buzz knowing at least one player from your team will receive the honor of representing their team in the Midsummer Classic.
Today was no different at Miller Park as two Milwaukee Brewers were named to their very first MLB All-Star Team. Carlos Gomez and Jean Segura will represent the Brewers at Citi Field in New York on July 16 in the MLB All-Star Game. They were named reserves on the National League squad during the selection special on FOX.
Gomez is hitting .319 (7th in NL) with 13 home runs and 41 RBI this season. He also has 18 stolen bases (T5th in NL), 20 doubles and a National League-leading nine triples. He is also third in the National League in both slugging percentage (.572) and extra-base hits (42). He has picked up National League Player of the Week for the week of April 15 – 21 after batting .500 (9-for-18) with five runs, two home runs and three RBI in six games.
Not only have the offensive numbers of Gomez been impressive, but how about his defense?! Last night, he robbed a home run as he scaled the wall. Those plays have been routine for Gomez.
Segura is hitting .322 with 11 home runs and 33 RBI this season. Although he is not considered a rookie, it is Segura’s first full season in the Major Leagues and he was named to his first Opening Day roster out of Spring Training. A key piece in last year’s Zack Greinke trade with Los Angeles of Anaheim, Segura leads the Brewers with 26 stolen bases (2nd in the NL) and is the only player in the Major Leagues this season with ten or more home runs and 25 or more stolen bases.
Segura’s eight triples are tied for second in the National League and his 31 multi-hit games rank fourth in the NL. He also enjoyed two double-digit hitting streaks during the month of June (10g and 12g).
Like Gomez, Segura’s defense has also been impressive all season as he has been very solid at shortstop.
Between the two of them, they have combined for 206 hits this season (Segura 109, tops in the National League, Gomez 97). That ranks second among National League teammates, trailing only Yadier Molina (106) and Matt Carpenter (105) of St. Louis (211).
This is the first time since 2011 that the Brewers had more than one All-Star. Last year was the first year the Brewers were represented with only one player since 2005. This is also the first year since 2006 that the Brewers do not have a starter in the game. Segura is the first Brewers shortstop selected to an All-Star team since J.J. Hardy was selected in 2007.
Make sure to support Gomez and Segura by tuning in to the game on Tuesday, July 16 on FOX. It is always a great event and is a great showcase for the game.
There are just about two weeks left in the VOTE Brewers campaign. While the last day to vote at Miller Park is Friday, you still have until July 4 to vote online.
The most recent voting returns announced on Sunday had four Brewers among the leaders. Ryan Braun, Jean Segura, Carlos Gomez and Jonathan Lucroy are all within striking distance and all in need of Brewers fans help.
Baseball is a game of numbers, so lets talk numbers why these guys should be All-Stars. All four players have some pretty incredible numbers.
- Gomez (12 hr/13 sb) and Segura (10 hr/20sb) are two of seven players in MLB that have double figures in both home runs and stolen bases this season.
- Gomez also is one of six players in MLB that have double figures in home runs, stolen bases and doubles (17).
- Gomez and Segura are on pace to possibly record 20 doubles, 20 triples, 20 home runs and 20 stolen bases in the same season. This is something that has only been accomplished seven times in MLB history! Willie Mays in 1957, Jim Bottomley in 1928, Jimmy Rollins in 2007, Jeff Heath in 1941, George Brett in 1979, Curtis Granderson in 2007 and good ole’ Wildfire Schulte in 1911 all have accomplished that feat. This will be exciting to watch in the second half of 2013.
- Segura is the only player in MLB to have 10 hr and 20 stolen bases this season.
- Lucroy has been on a tear over the last few weeks, as he is tied for third in MLB in RBI since 5/31 with 17 and hitting .389 over those previous 15 games with 3 hr. Since the beginning of 2012, only Posey (.919) and Yadier Molina (.885) have a higher OPS than Lucroy (.822) among N.L. catchers.
- While Braun is on the Disabled List, he too has been one of the best hitters in baseball, posting the highest OPS among all MLB outfielders at .963 since the beginning of last season.
- WAR. What is it good for, you ask? It is a pretty popular stat these days that stands for “Wins Above Replacement.” It is used to measure the overall value of a player’s contribution to their team. FanGraphs’ WAR has Gomez leading the National League and second in MLB and Segura ranked ninth in the N.L.
Braun trails the third and final outfield spot by just over 300,000 votes. Gomez is 11th among N.L. outfielders, just over 900,000 votes shy of jumping into the top three. Segura is just over 1.2 million votes behind Troy Tulowitzki and Lucroy is nearly 2 million votes shy of Buster Posey at catcher. Now you might think I’m nuts because of those numbers and the amount of time.
But hang with me and take a look at some simple math here. This blog post will be sent via social media to Brewers Facebook fans and Twitter followers which we can estimate is just over 750,000 possible people. Now, for argument sake, say our Twitter followers also are Facebook fans, so let’s bring that estimate to 500,000 Brewers social media gurus who follow the team. If each of you votes the maximum of 35 times on Brewers.com, that will total 17.5 million votes. Certainly enough to get those four voted in (and the rest of the Brewers!).
Don’t forget to campaign for your favorite Brewers players on social media:
The 2013 MLB All-Star Game will take place at CitiField in New York on Tuesday, July 16. Tune in to the game on FOX.
