Enter our #BrewCrewLove Contest on Twitter for Your Chance to Win a Valentine’s Day Card

This Valentine’s Day, we’re asking you to share your love for the Crew for your chance to win a Valentine’s Day card signed by a current Brewers player.

MB-16 Secret Admirer Graphics-MAIN-Social

Here’s how it works:

Log in to Twitter and tell us who your favorite Brewers player of all time is and  why using the hashtag #BrewCrewLove and we’ll randomly pick fans to receive a Valentine’s Day card from a member of the current team, such as Jonathan Lucroy, Jimmy Nelson, Will Smith and more!

Past, present, mascot, All-Star or here for a cup of coffee–there is no wrong answer as long as you have a good reason for your love!

For example, for me, my first true #BrewCrewLove was Jamey Wright. Jamey was a pitcher for us right around the time I really started seriously following baseball. I had the chance to meet him during an autograph session and he was really nice, too!

So who was your first #BrewCrewLove? Maybe it was Paul Molitor or Robin Yount. Or maybe you have a current #BrewCrewLove you want to share. Just tell us in 140 characters or less (and attach a photo if you have one!) and you might be randomly selected to get a Valentine’s Day card from the Crew.

My current #BrewCrewLove? You–the fans! We truly do have the best fans in all of baseball.

Happy Valentine’s Day, readers! I love you all!

The Milwaukee Brewers have joined The Resistance to fight the newly-minted members of The First Order, the New York Mets, in what is sure to be an epic battle for the galaxy. This all comes in a not-too-distant future, in a ballpark very, very close to you.

Cait’s 2015 Clubhouse Sale Preview

I hope you didn’t blow your holiday shopping budget on Black Friday and Cyber Monday because the Brewers Clubhouse Sale is coming up this weekend and they’ve got some great deals for every fan on your list.

The popular shopping event is held in the Visitors Clubhouse and will be open to the public Friday and Saturday from 8 a.m. – 8 p.m. New this year, the sale will also be open on Sunday from 10 a.m.-2 p.m.

MB-15_Clubhouse-Sale-Social-720X720

Today, I got a sneak peek and I’m going to share my finds with you. Think of me like your advance scout for the sale.

Two things you’ll want to take note of right off the bat:

  • This year, the sale is organized primarily by SIZE, making it easier than ever before to scour the racks for the best bargains.
  • There is also a new pricing system in place at the sale. Instead of items being marked with special sale stickers, instead you will see a color code on the item. These colors indicate the new discounted price. Don’t worry, it will be easy to figure out, as the color codes will be posted all around the space. The best part? This pricing starts at just $.99 for some novelty items. Yep, that’s right. There are some really great bargains this year!

Okay, let’s get to the fun stuff.

One thing you won’t be able to miss when you walk through the Visitors Clubhouse is the big table full of Player Name + Number tees (or “shirseys” as folks sometimes like to call them).

We’ve had a few roster moves over the last couple of months and the Team Store is looking to move the extra inventory. Tees featuring former players, like Carlos Gomez pictured below, are just $4.99.

Player Tees start at just $4.99.

Player Tees start at just $4.99.

 

But it’s not just former Brewers players tees that are discounted–you’ll also save on older style tees of current players, meaning you can score a Ryan Braun or Jean Segura tee for just $9.99.

Similarly, Sausage Name + Number tees are just $9.99 as well.

 

If real jerseys are more your style, then you’re also in luck!

We’ve got blank replica jerseys starting at $39.99, blank authentic jerseys starting at $75 and game-used player jerseys starting at $100. You’ll find a mix of styles, including specialty jerseys such as those worn on St. Patrick’s Day, Cerveceros Day and our Negro Leagues Tribute Game.

One cool offering at the sale this year is the ability to purchase a game-used baseball for just $15. Fans can go online and type in the authentication number and find out the story behind the baseball. I’m told that mixed in among foul balls are balls that were hit by guys like Ryan Braun and Jonathan Lucroy.

Fans can purchase "mystery baseballs" at the Sale and go online to find out the story behind the ball.

Fans can purchase “mystery baseballs” at the Sale and go online to find out the story behind the ball.

Speaking of authentic, game-used items, the Authentics section is always one of the most popular spots at the Clubhouse Sale. They’ve got everything from balls, plaques and bats to locker nameplates, bases and hats. These items are extremely limited, so I recommend getting there as early as possible to get the best selection on these items.

Perhaps you have a fan cave at home and want to dress it up with some unique decor? We’ve got signs that have been used in the Team Store and around the ballpark available starting at $5.

There truly is something for everyone at the Brewers Clubhouse Sale, from infants to adults.

There is a large selection of infant and toddler gear at the sale again this year. Items start at $9.99.

Jonathan Lucroy in Washington, D.C. to Receive 2015 Bob Feller Act of Valor Award

Tonight Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy is in Washington, D.C. to receive the Bob Feller Act of Valor Award in a ceremony held at the U.S. Navy Memorial.

Also receiving the award will be Hall-of-Famer George Brett; Chief Petty Officer Genell Cody of the United States Navy; Staff Sergeant Rene Segura of the United States Marine Corps; USS Carl Vinson (CVN-70), and HOPPER Information Services Center.

In addition to the recipients, the ceremony will include a special gathering of special guests and baseball luminaries including Tommy Lasorda, former Secretary of the Navy John Dalton, Navy Reserve Force Master Chief Clarence “CJ” Mitchell, and Sergeant Major of the Marine Corps, Ronald Green.

Jonathan Lucroy has supported our troops for many years. From his work with Fisher House Wisconsin, inviting wounded heroes to home games each month as his guest, to giving more than $20,000 in scholarships to military families, his unwavering support of the men and women in uniform is commendable. During the 2014 offseason, Lucroy also joined veterans on the Honor Flight, traveling with 41 WWII and Korean War Veterans to Washington D.C.

“I’m very grateful, honored and humbled to be recognized for my support. I appreciate the men and women who sacrifice their lives for our country,” Lucroy said.

The Bob Feller Act of Valor Award is an award named after the Hall of Fame pitcher who was the first Major League Baseball player to enlist in the United States Navy after the attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941. Feller served on missions in both the Pacific and the North Atlantic, and earned the rank of Chief Petty Officer along with six campaign ribbons and eight battle stars. When asked about the most important victory he had won, Feller famously replied without hesitation, “World War II.”

Lucroy was recognized as one of 15 finalists across Major League Baseball for the award, created by Peter Fertig, with the support of the U.S. Navy, U.S. Marine Corps, the USS Alabama Battleship Memorial, the Cleveland Indians, the Baseball Hall of Fame, the Major League Baseball Players Alumni Association, and the gracious consent of Mrs. Anne Feller, the San Diego Padres, and the family of Jerry Coleman. He was announced as a winner of the award in September.

“It is truly inspiring to watch these players within Major League Baseball honor our U.S. Military and those who serve proudly today,” said Fertig.

Our thanks to Jonathan and all who support the actions, values and dedication of our servicemen and women.

Francisco Rodriguez was voted Brewers Most Valuable Pitcher, earning all seven first-place votes (35 points).  Rodriguez went 1-3 with a 2.21 ERA and 38 saves in 60 appearances.  His 38 saves tied for fifth in the National League.  He was selected to his sixth All-Star Game.  Rodriguez, who produced his seventh season of 35+ saves (also 2005-09 and 2014), now ranks seventh on the all-time Major League saves list (386).  Jeremy Jeffress (14 points) and Jimmy Nelson (11) finished second and third, respectively.

Adam Lind (31 points) earned Brewers Top Newcomer ahead of pitcher Taylor Jungmann (22).  Lind received five first-place votes and two second-place votes.  Acquired from Toronto last November 1 in exchange for pitcher Marco Estrada, he batted .277 with 20 HR and a team-leading 87 RBI in 149 games.  Lind earned Brewers Player of the Month honors for both April (21g, .333, 4hr, 13rbi) and June (26g, .326, 3hr, 19rbi).

Jeremy Jeffress (24 points) took home Brewers Unsung Hero honors ahead of fellow reliever Will Smith (15).  Jeffress received four first-place votes, a second-place vote and a third-place vote.  He went 5-0 with a 2.65 ERA in 72 appearances this season, posting a sterling 1.40 ERA over his last 25 outings (25.2ip, 4er).

Jonathan Lucroy received all seven first-place votes (35 points) to capture his third consecutive Good Guy Award.  Three players received votes with pitcher Kyle Lohse (14 points) and second baseman Scooter Gennett (12) finishing second and third, respectively.

Brewers Walk-Up & Entrance Music: Updated 9/8/15

For players, the song they choose for their walk-up or entrance music is often an important decision. What brief part of a song is going to send a message to the fans—and what do I want that message to be? Do I keep the same song that I had last year? What’s the hit that is going to produce the most hits? Is it a superstitious thing, do I want fans to sing along, or do I just use my favorite song right now?

If you’re like me and you’re attuned to the tunes, you probably enjoy seeing this list each year—and updating your iPod playlists accordingly.

Lucroy Recognized as Bob Feller Act of Valor Award Finalist

Tonight, prior to the Brewers vs. Pirates game, Jonathan Lucroy was recognized on the field as one of 15 finalists across Major League Baseball for the 2015 Bob Feller Act of Valor Award, an award named after the Hall of Fame pitcher who was the first Major League Baseball player to enlist in the United States Navy after the attack on Pearl Harbor.

Jonathan is recognized for his efforts in support of our servicemen and women. He’s been a consistent supporter of military initiatives, primarily Fisher House Wisconsin, a facility for military veterans and their families receiving treatment at the Milwaukee VA hospital. Jonathan invites wounded heroes to games each month and meets with them prior to first pitch. He also regularly visits veterans’ hospitals in Milwaukee, his hometown in Louisiana, and when the team is on the road.

During the offseason, Jonathan joined the Honor flight, traveling to Washington, D.C. with 41 World War II and 47 Korean War Veterans, and for each of the past three years, he has contributed $5,000 scholarships to military families.

Pink Tie Guy Event Benefits Breast Cancer Research and Prevention

Last night, I was fortunate to be able to attend the “Pink Tie Guy” fundraiser at Blu atop the Pfister Hotel in downtown Milwaukee.

Led by President-Baseball Operations and GM Doug Melvin and his wife, Ellen, Pink Tie Guy is an event benefiting After Breast Cancer Diagnosis (ABCD). Breast cancer research and prevention is a cause near and dear to the Melvins’ hearts, as Ellen lost her mother, Elsie Schultz, to the disease in 1991.

Ginny Finn, Executive Director of ABCD, was on hand to speak about the importance of the cause and how grateful the organization is for support from events such as this.

A pink tie is not just a fashion statement – it’s a commitment to the fight against breast cancer. At the event, the “Pink Tie Guys,” an elite group of individuals who stepped up to the plate to contribute to the fight, were presented with custom pink bow ties from Randa Neckwear.

Attendees from the Brewers included Manager Craig Counsell, Jerry Narron, Ed Sedar, Mike Guerrero, Rick Kranitz, Lee Tunnell, Jimmy Nelson, and Jonathan Lucroy; broadcasters Bill Schroeder and Bob Uecker; and other front office executives.

In addition, this year, Commissioner Emeritus Bud Selig was named the 2015 Honorary Pink Tie Guy. Past Honorary Pink Tie Guys include Hank Aaron and Robin Yount.

Here are a few photos from the event:

Thank you to everyone who came out last night to support this very important cause.
