RBI Championship Game Played at Miller Park

Reviving Baseball in the Inner Cities, or the RBI Program, is a MLB youth baseball initiative and partnership with the Boys & Girls Clubs. The RBI program was developed by former scout and Major Leaguer John Young in Los Angeles in 1989 to provide youth ages 9 to 17 the opportunity to learn and enjoy the game of baseball.

This weekend, we were proud to host the 2014 RBI Central Regional Tournament in Milwaukee! Seven leagues competed in the junior, senior and softball divisions over the weekend, with the championship game played at Miller Park today.

Congratulations to these three teams who will advance to the RBI World Series game in Texas!

JOIN THE MILWAUKEE BREWERS AND THE 2015 PGA CHAMPIONSHIP FOR ‘GOLF NIGHT AT MILLER PARK’ ON AUGUST 9  

My worlds are colliding! We’re hosting GOLF NIGHT AT MILLER PARK!

Today, we, along with the PGA of America and Kohler Co., are pleased to announce that “Golf Night at Miller Park” will take place when the Brewers host the Los Angeles Dodgers at 6:10 p.m. CT on Saturday, August 9.

The game falls just prior to the year-out mark of the 2015 PGA Championship, which is preparing to make its third visit to Whistling Straits in nearby Kohler, Wis., August 10-16, 2015. Fans hoping to attend the 2015 PGA Championship should complete the free and required online ticket pre-registration by August 10 at www.PGAChampionship.com in order to be eligible to purchase tickets during the public sale, which will run August 11-30, 2014.

“Baseball and golf are two of Wisconsin’s most beloved games, and we’re thrilled to celebrate ‘Golf Night at Miller Park’ with the Milwaukee Brewers and the team’s great fans as we continue the countdown to Whistling Straits,” said 2015 PGA Championship Director Jason Mengel. “We’re also very excited to be tracking near record levels of ticket pre-registration for the 2015 PGA Championship, and would encourage everyone to pre-register at www.PGAChampionship.com by the quickly approaching August 10 deadline.”

The Milwaukee Brewers assisted the 2015 PGA Championship in kicking off its ticket pre-registration period in late April by hosting defending PGA Champion Jason Dufner at Miller Park.

As you may recall, during his visit, Dufner had a little fun with Brewers pitcher Kyle Lohse, who ended up losing a bet to the golfer.

“Golf Night at Miller Park” on August 9 will include a variety of opportunities and activities for fans:

  • The first 25,000 adults who enter the stadium will receive a Brewers Coupon book; inside the book will be a coupon with instructions on how to pre-register for 2015 PGA Championship tickets. All Brewers fans who pre-register using the coupon will be entered for a chance to win a pin flag signed by Jason Dufner and Kyle Lohse.

  • Prior to the game, fans can participate in contests with the Kohler Golf Academy and receive quick tips and lessons from local Wisconsin PGA Professionals outside Miller Park on the 3rd Base Plaza.
  • One lucky fan will be chosen to participate in a putting contest on top of the Brewers dugout and have the chance to win 2015 PGA Championship tickets, as well as a one-night stay at The American Club and golf on one of Kohler’s award-winning courses.

Tickets for “Golf Night at Miller Park” are available at  Brewers.com or by calling 414-902-GAME.

Rainbow Loom Night at Miller Park

Hundreds of youngsters and their families came out to Miller Park tonight to take part in a special event pertaining to the 2014 Toy of the Year, the Rainbow Loom.

In case you’re not aware, Rainbow Looms are plastic toy looms used to weave colorful rubber bands into bracelets and charms. Rainbow Looms have become quite the phenomenon among children, roughly ages 8-14.

It’s a popular pastime in summer camps and the like and children make and swap their rubber-band bracelets much the same way I did with “friendship bracelets” as a kid.

Rainbow Loom Equipment Hank

The Rainbow Loom has become somewhat of a pop culture icon, as Jimmy Kimmel featured a #SuitOfTheLoom on his show back in February:

The Rainbow Loom was invented in 2011 by Cheong Choon Ng of Novi, Michigan and we were pleased to have him here at the ballpark tonight to  highlight the evolution of the loom, unveil a new finger loom, and sign autographs.

Rainbow Loom staff and Learning Express Toys were also onsite to teach new bracelet designs.

Plus, all children were able to create their own Monster Tail Rainbow Loom with Brewers-color rubber bands and the first 500 children received a special Hank charm.

Looks like fun was had by all!

Happy National Hot Dog Day!

Happy National Hot Dog Day!

This isn’t an official “What Cait Ate” food review since sadly, I have not had a chance to sample these items, but nonetheless, I thought we could celebrate with two specialty foot-long hot dogs that we sell here at Miller Park: The Chicago-Style Dog and the Milwaukee Dog.

Hot Dog 2

The Chicago-Style Dog (left) comes in a poppy seed bun and is topped with diced tomato, onion, sport pepper pickle, neon relish and celery salt.

The Milwaukee Dog (right) comes on a cheddar onion bun and is topped with bacon strips and bits, Barrel Man Ale Cheese Sauce and fried cheese curds.

Each of these specialty dogs can be found at the Southpaw Sausages Stand on the Loge Level near the top of  the escalator near the third base side of home plate. They are $13 each.

Fans of The Beast (our brat stuffed with a hot dog and wrapped in bacon, served on a pretzel bun) should also note that it has moved here from the Plaza Grill (now AJ Bombers).
