Meet Reagan Imhoff, National Goodwill Ambassador for MDA

Today, we were pleased to host 9-year-old Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) National Goodwill Ambassador Reagan Imhoff and her parents, Jenny and Joe, here at Miller Park.

The Imhoff family resides in New Berlin where Reagan is a charming, happy and outgoing fourth-grader who enjoys art, social studies and recess.

In her free time, she told me she enjoys drawing, dancing and playing with her dolls-especially her American Girl collection.

Reagan works on a special drawing for Jonathan Lucroy.

Reagan works on a special drawing for Jonathan Lucroy.

She is also a long-time Brewers fan (“Ever since I was six!” she told me, proudly).

However, one thing that sets Reagan apart from her classmates is that she has spinal muscular atrophy (SMA, type 2), a genetic disease affecting the part of the nervous system that controls voluntary muscle movement. Because of this progressive neuromuscular disease which is most commonly diagnosed in infancy, Reagan has never been able to crawl or walk. In addition  SMA has led to difficulty eating enough food by mouth to maintain her weight and grow, so Reagan is mainly fed through a g-j tube. Her respiratory muscles are also very weak, which makes coughing and taking deep breaths while sleeping difficulty, leading to an increased tendency for pneumonia and other problems. Scoliosis also presented complications early on for Reagan which resulted in the need for spinal surgery when she was just 4. Leg and hip pain have also been an increasing problem for her.

Despite all of these challenges, Reagan remains positive and upbeat, choosing to tell her personal story as a National Goodwill Ambassador for MDA. In this capacity, Reagan is working to help raise awareness and understanding of muscle disease and inspire support of the organization.

Beginning in 1952, when public awareness and understanding of muscle disease were almost non-existent, MDA put a human face on its mission by calling upon young people affected by these diseases to serve as National Goodwill Ambassadors. To date, the program has had 39 such ambassadors, boys and girls affected by a variety of neuromuscular disorders, who have traveled the nation to meet with sponsors, supporters and luminaries, playing an essential role in motivating millions to help MDA through donations or volunteer action.

Reagan had served as a Wisconsin Ambassador for three years before being tapped for the National spotlight. Reagan’s mom, Jenny, told me that they’ve been all over the county this year, including Arizona, Nashville, Las Vegas, Chicago, Daytona, San Antonio, Houston, Los Angeles and San Diego.

Of her travels, Reagan tells me that Nashville is her favorite place, “because it was really fun and the people are really nice,” she said.

But today, Reagan got an experience that ranks right up at the top–she got to meet her favorite player, catcher Jonathan Lucroy, along with Brewers pitchers Matt Garza and Kyle Lohse and bullpen catcher Marcus Hanel, during BP.

Reagan also threw out the first pitch before tonight’s Brewers vs. Cardinals game:

Reagan 1

 

It was a pleasure to meet Reagan and her family; they are lovely people and I can see why this charismatic youngster was chosen to be an ambassador at the national level.

You can meet Reagan and mingle with current and former professional athletes at the annual MDA Muscle Team Gala on Thursday, November 13 at SURG Restaurant Group’s new event space on Milwaukee Street.  For more information call 262-432-7992 or visit www.mdamuscleteamwisconsin.com.

Wounded Warriors Join the Brewers in Washington, D.C. This Weekend

Last week, we told you that combat veterans Brian Schultz of Wisconsin Dells & Shane Kruchten of Oshkosh were joining the Brewers on the team’s road trip to Washington, D.C.  as special guests of Brewers President of Baseball Operations and General Manager Doug Melvin and his wife, Ellen, who are big supporters of the Wounded Warrior Project, an organization dedicated to raising awareness and enlisting the public’s aid for the needs of injured service members. It helps injured servicemen and women aid and assist each other and  provides unique, direct programs and services to meet their needs.

Clubhouse Assistant Matt Smith was the liaison for the two VIPs and their guests this weekend and he documented their trip from start to finish.

“I told them not to worry about trying to take photos of everything, that they should just relax and enjoy the experience, that I would capture it,” Matt told me.

And capture it, he did. Read on for their experience, peppered with some Tweets & Instagram posts from Shane.

Thursday, July 17:

Each veteran was permitted to bring one guest along on the trip, so on Thursday, Shane and his brother-in-law, Michael; and Brian and his friend, Marcel (another former Marine), reported to Miller Park. There, Shane and Brian found lockers waiting for them, set up with everything that the Brewers players have from BP uniforms to personalized equipment.

They took the field as part of the team’s optional workout and met with the local media before boarding the team charter to Washington, D.C.

Friday, July 18:

In the morning, Brian and Marcel visited Arlington National Cemetery and later, all four met up to tour the National Mall.  They then reported to Nationals Park, where they found their visiting lockers waiting for them. They took part in batting practice and dined with the players. They were then formally introduced in a team meeting by Manager Ron Roenicke, where they gave a little bit of a personal background, before having the honor of helping Ron exchange lineup cards at home plate. They then took in the game from seats behind the Brewers dugout.

Saturday, July 19:

The group joined front office staff, players and personnel on a tour of the White House in the morning. Then they watched guys hit in the cages before joining the starting pitchers to watch Jimmy Nelson throw his bullpen session. As a thank you to each of  the players for letting them wear the Brewers jersey, the pair handed out Wounded Warrior t-shirts to the team. They then stood on the front line for the national anthem and took in the game again from seats behind the Brewers dugout.

Sunday, July 20:

The pair joined the starting pitchers again, this time for Kyle Lohse’s bullpen session, before assuming the roles of bat boys for that day’s game. Following the game, they presented the team with a signed flag which will hang in the batting cages at Miller Park.  The team donned their new Wounded Warriors t-shirt for the flight home, a whirlwind, fun-filled weekend for Brian and Shane.

In addition to sponsoring this special trip for Brian and Shane, Doug and Ellen Melvin and their family support the Wounded Warrior Project all season long at Miller Park. Through a donation to Brewers Community Foundation, the Melvins also welcome a wounded service member from Wounded Warrior Project to one Brewers game each month. The special guest receives four field level seats to a Saturday Brewers home game and is recognized on the scoreboard at Miller Park for their service to our country.

“This is a cause that we can all get behind, and I am happy to support,” said Doug Melvin. “These young men and women make enormous sacrifices for all of us and Wounded Warrior Project helps them adjust to life back home after serving our country.”

For more on Brian and Shane, check out Adam McCalvy’s story on brewers.com.

Brewers Team Up With KaBoom for Playground Build

Today, more than 250 volunteers from the Milwaukee Brewers (including players, coaches, Brewers Wives and front office staff), Brewers Community Foundation, Inc., Our Next Generation, organizers from KaBOOM!, and residents of the Milwaukee community joined forces to give area kids the childhood they deserve by building a new playground at Our Next Generation. The design is based on children’s drawings created at a special design event in April.

Brewers Community Foundation was the lead sponsor of this events as part of its Beyond the Diamond initiative, a series of community outreach events that take place during the season. These events involve partnering with Brewers Community Foundation, players/coaches, Brewers Wives, alumni and team staff, working hands-on in the community. The community events will be funded in part by Brewers Community Foundation and focus on the areas of health, education, recreation and basic needs. Today, the focus was recreation. 

The Brewers will take on the Colorado Rockies tonight in the first game of a four-game set, but that didn’t stop members of the team including manager Ron Roenicke, Khris Davis, Yovani Gallardo, Will Smith and bullpen catcher Marcus Hanel from joining the rest of the group at the build site. Here are some photos I captured at today’s event:

A playground is more than a playground. It’s a brain-expander, friend-maker, and muscle-builder. Play is central to a child’s ability to grow into a productive adult. It can transform children from sedentary, bored and solitary to physically, mentally and socially active. Since 1996, KaBOOM! has been dedicated to the bold goal of ensuring that all children get the balance of active play they need to become healthy and successful adults because #playmatters.

In central Milwaukee, where roughly 3 out of 4 children live below the poverty line, kids often lack safe and carefree environments to explore, learn, and grow. The new playground will bring more than 850 kids in Milwaukee one step closer to having the childhood they deserve.

The playground is the second build by the Brewers Community Foundation, Inc. and KaBOOM!. Through this partnership, more children will have the joyful childhood they deserve. The Brewers Community Foundation, Inc. supports KaBOOM! in promoting and protecting a child’s right to active play at home, at school and in the community.

About KaBOOM!

KaBOOM! is the national non-profit dedicated to giving kids the childhood they deserve by bringing play to those who need it most. Children today spend less time playing outdoors than any previous generation, a fact that is having disastrous consequences on their health, achievement levels, and overall well-being. Social entrepreneur Darell Hammond founded non-profit KaBOOM! in 1996 in Washington, D.C. with a vision of creating a great place to play within walking distance of every child in America because children need to play actively every day at home, in school and in their communities. Since then, KaBOOM! has mapped over 90,000 places to play, built more than 2,300 playgrounds, and successfully advocated for play policies in hundreds of cities across the country. KaBOOM! also provides communities with online tools to self-organize and take action to support play on both a local and national level.  For more information, visit www.kaboom.org.

Brewers Bullpen Gets Jiggy Wit It at the MLB Fan Cave; Produces Rap Video Featuring Will Smith, Inspired by Will Smith

Earlier this month when the Crew visited NYC to take on the Mets, many members of the Brewers bullpen paid a visit to the MLB Fan Cave where they filmed a special video.

We teased it for you a bit on social media at the time….

…but now we’re excited to share the special video–starring Will Smith, Zach Duke, Mike Fiers, Wei-Chung Wang, and Rob Wooten– with you here:

When your name is Will Smith, you have to have a good sense of humor. And, since the Brewers bullpen seems to be the most music video-friendly group in Major League Baseball right now, the Crew took this opportunity to  channel the 1990s rap scene with a montage/parody of some songs inspired by the “other” Will Smith:

“Here Come The Men in Blue”

“The Wild Midwest”

“The Fresh Prince of Brew City”

“Welcome to Milwaukee”

It was a great day hanging out at the Cave and in addition to the video, I also got a lot of fantastic behind-the-scenes photos to share with you here. Enjoy!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.


A huge thank you to the folks at MLB Fan Cave for putting this together; it turned out fantastic! Also, thank you to the guys for taking the time to do this; I know I had fun and I think they may have had a little, too. ;)

Wei-Chung Wang Wednesday is Back! #WCWW

Good morning and happy “Wei-Chung Wang Wednesday” (#WCWW)!

After a brief hiatus, the Brewers bullpen is back with a new Wei-Chung Wang Wednesday video.

This one involves…a trip to the zoo? Well, a cage anyway. They must have been inspired by Sunday’s Koos for Kids event.

The WCWW trend started back in Ape-ril.

These guys are simply bananas.

They love to have fun off the field, but once they’re on the field, they stop monkeying around and it’s all business.

Okay, I’ll stop now.

Enjoy!

Join Brewers Players & Coaches for a Special Koos for Kids Fundraiser Next Sunday

Brewers bullpen catcher and Racine native Marcus Hanel (otherwise known as “Koos”) has always had a desire to help children and so, about 10 years ago, he formed “Koos for Kids,” a charity focusing on helping terminally ill and disadvantaged children in the area.

Over the years, Koos for Kids has been able to help numerous terminally ill children by purchasing them laptops, iPads, zoo passes, airline tickets, animals…whatever it might be that makes their days a little brighter.

They’ve also purchased over 3000 winter coats for disadvantaged children in the local area, as well as organized and run the Challenger Baseball League, where over 60 children with special needs can come and be part of a team and learn the game of baseball.  And there are countless other ways they have helped the local community, thanks to the support of many businesses and caring individuals.

This coming Sunday, June 1, you have the opportunity to help support this terrific cause.

The Brewers take on the Chicago Cubs at 1p.m. that day and, following the game, Marcus, along with Brewers players and coaches, will be making their way to the Milwaukee County Zoo for a Koos for Kids event.

Koos for Kids Fundraiser

 

For just $25, you’ll receive a ticket to the zoo (good all day), zoo parking, dinner, a special Q&A with Brewers coaches emceed by Bill Schroeder and Sophia Minnaert, autographs from Brewers players and the opportunity to participate in auctions and raffles. Of course proceeds from the event go to the Koos for Kids organization, where they are used to give back to the community. 

Marcus recently tweeted out a list of players scheduled to appear at the event:

And, I spoke with Marcus the other day and he told me that sales for this annual event are strong, but if you hurry, you can still get in on the fun. Click here to reserve your ticket today!

Why not make it a doubleheader of Brewers fun? Be sure to get your tickets to the Brewers vs. Cubs series, too!
