Bob Uecker Statue to be Dedicated Friday in the “Last Row”

Today we announced details for Friday’s unveiling of the new Bob Uecker statue at Miller Park.  Unlike the statues that surround Miller Park’s Home Plate Plaza, this statue will be in the last row—yes, the last row of the Terrace Level at Miller Park.

The statue will pay tribute to the popular Miller Lite “All Stars” ad campaign which featured Uecker’s famous tagline, “I must be in the front row.”  In those commercials, Uecker somehow always ended up in the last row—as will this statue.  The statue will sit atop the Uecker Seats in Miller Park’s Terrace Level (Section 422).  It will feature an open seat next to it allowing for a perfect photo opportunity.

Starting with the Brewers vs. Cubs series at Miller Park this weekend, be sure to stop up, take your photo and tweet it and/or Instagram it using #IMustBeInTheFrontRow and we’ll collect & share our favorites across our social media sites.

The statue will be unveiled for the first time in a ceremony open to special guests and media Friday afternoon (the unveiling ceremony is not open to the public).  Prior to that night’s 7:10 p.m. game against the Chicago Cubs at Miller Park, a presentation will be made on the field honoring Uecker and showcasing the statue.

The statue was designed by Brian Maughan, the artist of the four statues outside Miller Park on the Home Plate Plaza—Hank Aaron, Allan H. “Bud” Selig, Robin Yount and Uecker.  The statue will be made of bronze, but will also have color effects.

Home Away From Home: The “Hank House” to Debut at Miller Park Today

Hank, the “Ballpark Pup,” is getting a home at Miller Park.  The “Hank House,” a roomy, one bedroom Cape Cod-style dwelling, debuted today as the Crew opens a six-game homestand against the San Diego Padres at 7:10 p.m.

As you can see, the “Hank House” features a mini-slide and the #BallparkPup hashtag.

It will be positioned at “The Point” in centerfield for tonight’s game and as a mobile home, it will move around the ballpark throughout the season.  When Hank is at Miller Park, it will be his home and used for photo opportunities and appearances.

We think he likes it!

The “Thornburger” from AJ Bombers

During each homestand, we’ll sample some of the latest and greatest Miller Park fare and review it here, for you.

One of the most fun, new additions to Miller Park this season has been AJ Bombers. The popular restaurant and bar-with locations in Milwaukee and Madison-now occupies the outside space formerly known as the Plaza Pavilion, along the west side of Miller Park near the right-field gate.

AJ Bombers offers a selection of cheeseburgers, egg rolls, tater tots, shakes, custards, specialty concrete mixers and more. The menu also include homestand specials, such as the city-themed concrete mixers and the newest addition: The “Thornburger.”

THE THORNBURGER-$9

Starting tonight for a limited time, AJ Bombers is offering The "Thornburger," a special burger named after Brewers pitcher Tyler Thornburg

Brewers pitcher Tyler Thornburg now has a burger named after him--the Thornburger!

It’s a 1/4 lb patty topped with pepperoni, sautéed onions, lettuce, Texas BBQ sauce, Ranch dressing and pepper jack cheese. The appropriately named sandwich is the first of several city and/or player-themed burgers that AJ Bombers plans to offer this season.

He likes it! Hey Tyler!

He likes it! Hey Tyler!

“This may not be the last time I eat one of these,” Tyler said with a grin, as he tucked into the burger, which is exclusive to Miller Park (i.e. not served at AJ Bombers’ restaurants) and available for a limited time.

Last homestand, AJ Bombers featured the Malted Whoopie Pie Concrete Mixer (for the Pittsburgh Pirates Series) and the Gooey Butter Cake Concrete Mixer (St. Louis Cardinals Series) and they are currently featuring a Chili Chocolate Brownie Custard for the San Diego Padres Series.

We’ll be sure to check in with AJ Bombers often throughout the season to keep you informed on their newest menu items, just like we have been with the ever-popular Double Clutch!

The Double Clutch stand is on the Loge Level outside section 215 (on the first base side of the press box).

On the other side of the press box (just outside section 222) is the new and improved “Smokehouse.”  Featuring various meats smoked in one of Miller Park’s three smokers, staples at this stand include BBQ Beef Brisket, Italian Pork and smoked chicken.  These sandwiches are all priced at $10.50.

Each homestand, a different specialty meat will be featured.  Beginning tonight, the Smokehouse will feature a Chopped Ham Sandwich.  Bone-in ham, rubbed with BBQ spice is thinly shaved and dipped in a sweet BBQ sauce (also made in-house) and served on a cord dusted roll.  Served with a side of coleslaw, this is also $10.50.  This was a delicious sandwich that was sweet, while at the same time, maintained that smokehouse flavor.

Enjoy the homestand!

Celebrating the 40th Anniversary of Hank Aaron’s Historic Home Run

On April 8, 1974, 40 years ago today,  as a member of the Atlanta Braves, Henry “Hammerin’ Hank” Aaron, considered by many to be the greatest baseball player ever, hit his historic 715th home run off of Dodgers veteran Al Downing at Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium, a home run that broke Babe Ruth’s all-time record.

Here’s a great look back from Lyle Spencer. 

Aaron retired as all-time Home Run King with 755 career round-trippers, the last of which he hit on  July 20, 1976, while playing for the Milwaukee Brewers at County Stadium. For over 30 years, that home run has represented one of the most historic moments in Milwaukee Brewers history and all of Major League Baseball and there is a plaque situated in Brewers Lot 1, a preferred parking area located east of Helfaer Field, marking the landing spot of that final moon shot.
