Your 2014 Brewers Walk-Up & Entrance Music

If you were at any of the Exhibition Games this weekend, along with taking in the new changes around the ballpark, you might have found yourself taking in some new music as well, especially as our players walked up to the plate, or our pitchers entered the games.

For players, this 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?

And, it’s a big deal because sometimes, fans might not remember your exact career batting average or ERA with the team, but they just might remember your at-bat song.

Take these blasts from the past, for instance, which were very distinctive and will probably always stick out–in my mind, at least–as being associated with a certain player at a certain time: Tyler Houston using Baha Men’s “Who Let the Dogs Out” (2001);  Frank Catalanotto and Mark Kotsay using The Outfield’s “Your Love” (2009; 2011—”Josie’s on a vacation far away….”); or Brooks Kieschnick entering the game to George Strait’s “Cowboys Like Us” (2004).

So, if you’re like me and you’re attuned to the tunes, you’ll probably enjoy seeing this list—and updating your iPod playlists accordingly.

DID YOU KNOW? Make sure you download the free MLB At The Ballpark App! In addition to check-in offers, ballpark maps, game updates and more, one of the really cool features is “Ballpark Music.” Like a song you hear? Check it out on At The Ballpark–and you can even download it right there! No Shazam necessary!

“Fetcher” Reports to Spring Training; Tries to Walk On As Member of 2014 Brewers

Bernie, watch your back.

Move over, Brat, Polish, Italian, Hot Dog and Chorizo—there’s a new Top Dog in town.

We’re not sure where he came from, but a little stray pup is quickly becoming not just the Brewers unofficial Spring Training mascot, but a valued member of the team.

The pooch, who has since been named Hank (after who else but Hank Aaron?), wandered into Brewers camp two days ago looking a little grubby but ready for play. In no time, this little dog has stolen more hearts than Tommy Harper stole bases in 1969.

A staff member took Hank to the vet where he received his shots and a bath, but this little scrapper’s jersey will never be spotless. His white uniform looks to be permanently shaded a little on the gray side in places, but when you get to know this little fella’s personality, you see it’s a perfect fit.

Hank spends each day roaming offices and playing fields, visiting with everyone from Doug Melvin, Ron Roenicke, players and coaches to ticket office and concessions staff. Hank is going home with members of the organization each night to a warm bed, and he recently completed a day at the Team Store where he picked out his favorite styles from the latest Brewers pet gear.

So, what’s the next chapter? Stay tuned. Hank is in good hands and we’ll keep you posted on our most devoted “tail”-gater in the coming days.

For more updates from Brewers Spring Training in Phoenix, Arizona, be sure to follow the #CactusCrew hashtag on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.

2/20/14 “#BallparkPup”date:

After our posts yesterday, Hank has become a dog in demand! He spent the morning in the Clubhouse and did three TV interviews. He also took to the field for practice with his mentor, Yovani Gallardo.

Also, many of you are asking what is going to happen to Hank after Spring Training. Rest assured, Hank’s days as a stray are over, one way or another and he’ll continue to be well taken care of.

Here are some more photos from earlier today (How fitting is it that it’s “National Love Your Pet Day“?):

We just wanted to remind you about the many options you have to help as we approach Thanksgiving.

Brewers Community Foundation, Hunger Task Force and CBS 58 will host a food drive at Miller Park on Wednesday, November 27.  Food can be dropped off at Helfaer Field at Miller Park on November 27 between 4:30 a.m. and 6 p.m.

In a unique twist for fans and “art collectors” alike, Brewers Community Foundation is helping raise money for the Hunger Task Force through an online auction of player-designed “turkey hands, which we revealed via our social channels earlier this week.

Lucroy Named Brewers Nominee for the 2013 Roberto Clemente Award Presented by Chevrolet–VOTE NOW

Yesterday, Major League Baseball and Chevrolet, the official vehicle of Major League Baseball, announced that Jonathan Lucroy was named the Milwaukee Brewers 2013 nominee for the prestigious Roberto Clemente Award presented by Chevrolet.

MB-13 Vote for Lucroy Graphic

Today marks the 12th annual Roberto Clemente Day, which was established by Major League Baseball to honor Clemente’s legacy and to officially recognize local Club nominees of the Roberto Clemente Award presented by Chevrolet. Lucroy is one of the 30 Club finalists for the annual award, which recognizes a Major League Baseball player who best represents the game of baseball through positive contributions on and off the field, including sportsmanship and community involvement.

RC Day

The Roberto Clemente Award presented by Chevrolet pays tribute to Clemente’s achievements and character by recognizing current players who truly understand the value of helping others. The 15-time MLB All-Star and Hall of Famer who died in a plane crash on New Year’s Eve 1972 while attempting to deliver supplies to earthquake victims in Nicaragua.

RC Award

Lucroy has been a consistent supporter of military initiatives, primarily Fisher House Wisconsin, which is a facility for military veterans and their families receiving treatment at the Milwaukee VA Hospital.  Each month, he invites wounded heroes to Brewers games and meets with them.  He often visits veterans’ hospitals in Milwaukee, on road trips and near his home in Louisiana. Lucroy also provided in-kind support and recorded a PSA for the city-wide initiative to hire veterans. For the past three years, he has provided $5,000 scholarships to military families.

Lucroy is active with the Make-A-Wish Foundation, granting wishes and visiting hospitals. He created a PSA for Fisher House as well as the Brewers Community Foundation’s 5K Sausage Run/Walk in support of Fisher House and served as a spokesperson for the MDA Team Muscle Walk and BCF’s Drive for Charity. He also participates in the Brewers’ youth clinics. Additionally, Lucroy supports the Miracle League, which allows all children to play organized baseball regardless of ability. Along with his military support, he has been very supportive of Brewers Community Foundation, which focuses on health, education, recreation and basic needs.

MiracleLeaguePC13RS042

Lucroy will be recognized as the Brewers’ nominee for the 2013 Roberto Clemente Award presented by Chevrolet in a pre-game ceremony at Miller Park prior to tonight’s  game. As part of the league-wide celebration, the Roberto Clemente Day logo will also appear on the bases and the official dugout lineup cards.

The distinguished list of past national Roberto Clemente Award recipients includes 14 members of the National Baseball Hall of Fame:

Beginning today, on Roberto Clemente Day, fans are encouraged to participate in the process of selecting the national Roberto Clemente Award presented by Chevrolet recipient by visiting ChevyBaseball.com, which is powered by MLB Advanced Media, to vote for one of the 30 Club nominees. Voting ends on Sunday, October 6 and participating fans will be automatically registered for a chance to win a trip to the 2013 World Series, where the national winner of the Roberto Clemente Award presented by Chevrolet will be announced. The winner of the fan vote will receive one vote among those cast by the selection panel.

Give Yourself a Virtual Moustache in Celebration of “Birthday Weekend at Bernie’s,” presented by Southwest Airlines

As I’ve noted over the past few weeks, this season marks the 40th Anniversary since Bernie Brewer was introduced as the mascot of the Milwaukee Brewers and to celebrate, we’ll be hosting “Birthday Weekend at Bernie’s” presented by Southwest Airlines from Friday, August 16 through Sunday, August 18 as the Crew takes on the Cincinnati Reds. A variety of activities are scheduled for this entire weekend at Miller Park, including giveaways, prizes, sing-a-longs and much more.

Birthday Weekend at Bernie's

And, as the most popular Major League mascot on Twitter, Bernie is very tech-savvy so we have several ways fans can join in the celebration online.

The most fun is a new virtual moustache photo app that we launched today:

Visit the photo app by clicking here. Upload your photo, add a ‘stache and/or the logo, then share it with your friends! If you Tweet it, post it to Facebook and/or Instagram, be sure to use the hashtag #LUVBernie and include a special birthday greeting for Bernie as we’ll be compiling the greetings for him to view at brewers.com/luvbernie.

Here’s some more fun I had with the app today…

My cats, Cowbell & Crash. Whiskers are overrated.

My cats, Cowbell & Crash. Whiskers are overrated.

I took the liberty of giving Luc a facial hair upgrade. What do you think?

I took the liberty of giving Luc a facial hair upgrade. What do you think?

I hope you have as fun as I did, playing with the app and sending Bernie your best!

For more information and tickets to “Birthday Weekend at Bernie’s,” please visit Brewers.com/bernie40.  A historical timeline of Bernie Brewer is included below.

Cheers!
