This is a new tradition we started last year in the Media Relations Department, giving fans a sneak peek at the cover of the media guide before the guide is actually released. Senior Director – Media Relations, Mike Vassallo, Coordinator – Media Relations, Ken Spindler and I have worked very hard on the guide since last October and now see the light at the end of the tunnel with the project. The guide is officially in the hands of Mario Ziino from Delzer Lithograph in hopes of getting it back in time for the first Spring Training game in a few weeks.
The 2013 Brewers Media Guide cover was created by Brewers Senior Graphic Designer, Jeff Harding. Last year, the Brewers had one of the most powerful offenses in Major League Baseball–leading the National League in runs scored (776), home runs (202) and stolen bases (158). It was the fifth time in franchise history that the team hit 200 home runs in a season. We focused on the offense as an inspiration and Harding and his crew in the Consumer Marketing Department really captured what we were looking for on the cover.
The 2013 Brewers Media Guide will sell for $15 in the Brewers Team Store by Majestic at Miller Park by mid-March. We will also have copies available at the Brewers Team Store at Maryvale Baseball Park in Phoenix at Spring Training. The guide will also be available in .PDF form sometime in the next ten days. When that happens, I will certainly offer a link for everyone.

Brewers fans have been fortunate enough to be able to watch Ryan Braun on a daily basis. The reigning National League MVP has had another tremendous season and is putting up incredible numbers–especially down the stretch to help the Brewers jump back in the postseason race. Voting for league MVP will take place soon by members of the Baseball Writers Association of America and we want to make sure all the voters know how special of a season Braun is having.
Brewers Media Relations Director Mike Vassallo put together this “résumé” for Braun as the MVP voters get ready to cast their ballot. It was sent to voters this afternoon. I’m guessing most of you don’t get a vote, but it is still great to get the word out for Ryan!
