Get Your Authentics Grab Bag This Weekend

This weekend, as the Crew returns home to take on the Los Angeles Angels, you will have your chance to purchase a Brewers Authentics Grab Bag.

Priced at $50.00, these grab bags will contain either a 2012 game-used baseball and game-used cap, OR a 2012 game-used baseball and an authenticated player jersey. The items will be completely random–and that’s part of the fun!  (Sorry, no returns or exchanges.)

Game-used baseball & cap or game-used baseball & jersey? That's part of the fun!

Game-used baseball & cap or game-used baseball & jersey? That’s part of the fun!

There will be just 100 bags available, so you’ll have to hurry to the Authentics Kiosk located on the Field Level down the first-base line to get yours!

Sunday, September 1: Gorman Thomas Bobblehead Day Presented by the Wisconsin National Guard

Yesterday, we announced Harvey Kuenn as one of the 2013 bobbleheads and today, we’re pleased to announce our ninth bobblehead of 2013, one of Harvey’s Wallbangers…. GORMAN THOMAS!

Yes, you’ll want to make sure to get your tickets to the Sunday, September 1, Brewers vs. Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim as all fans in attendance will receive a bobblehead of “Stormin’ Gorman” himself.

Gorman was the first player selected by the Seattle Pilots in the June 1969 draft and as such, he’ll be featured in a Seattle Pilots uniform.

During his career, the former outfielder played with Milwaukee Brewers (1973–76, 1978–83, 1986), Cleveland Indians (1983) and Seattle Mariners (1984–86).

From 1978-1983, Gorman hit more home runs than any other player in the American League.

This is the second full-size Gorman Thomas Bobblehead given away at Miller Park (the first was in 2004).

Individual tickets will go on sale in February, but you can secure your tickets early as the Gorman Thomas bobblehead is included in the following ticket packages:

20-Game Sunday Plus Plan

4-Pack Interleague Plus Plan [Holiday 4-Packs go on sale on Tuesday, November 13!  Call (414) 902-HITS (4487) for details!]

6/13/13 Update: The Gorman Thomas Bobblehead Design is in! What do you think?

Miller Makes the Trip to Miller Park

In case you’re wondering, yes, that was current TNT game analyst and retired five-time All-Star NBA player, Reggie Miller, in attendance at the Brewers vs. Cardinals game last night and again, in the crowd today.

Miller was in Milwaukee to support his friends, Ryan Braun and Prince Fielder and tweeted about the game from his Twitter account @ReggieMillerTNT:

And, although he was cheering for the Crew last night, the California native (and neighbor of Ryan’s in the offseason) also made sure to add this disclaimer:

Miller played his entire 18-year career with the Indiana Pacers from the time he was selected by the team with the 11th pick of the 1st round of the NBA draft in 1987 to his retirement in 2005 and is one of four Pacers to have his jersey retired by the team.

Milwaukee sports fans might remember Miller as he often broke the hearts of Milwaukee Bucks fans. The Pacers and Bucks met in heated match ups in both the 1999 and 2000 NBA Playoffs.  His 41 points in Game 5 of the Bucks-Pacers first round series help the Pacers survive an upset attempt by the Bucks.

During his career, Miller played more games with the same team than all but two players in NBA history (John Stockton and Karl Malone of the Utah Jazz) and was a member of the gold medal-winning Olympic men’s basketball team in 1996 and of Team USA for the 1994 and 2002 World Championships. Following his retirement, Miller joined Turner Sports in 2005 as a basketball analyst and provides features throughout the year on the network’s studio show, Inside the NBA as well as game-site analysis.
