Aaron spoke to guests at the event, answered questions and took photos; a great time was had by all in the presence of baseball greatness.

The special event raised funds for the Hank Aaron Chasing the Dream Foundation. The foundation was created by Hank and his wife, Billye, to help children with limited opportunities and financial barriers develop their special talents and pursue their dreams. All proceeds from the evening benefit the fund and are administered locally to help children in the Milwaukee area.

Kip Moore Rocked Miller Park on Country Night

On Saturday night, country music star Kip Moore was in the house for a postgame concert following the Brewers vs. Pirates game, presented by 94.5 KTI Country.

Kip dropped by the Fox Sports Wisconsin booth where he chatted with Matt Lepay and Bill Schroeder about a number of topics, including, of course, baseball.

Kip, who grew up rooting for the Braves, said he’s always loved baseball and it runs in his family–his grandfather played minor league baseball for the St. Louis Cardinals alongside the likes of Stan Musial.

Following his time on TV, Kip attended a meet and greet with fans in the 2011 Brewers Suite before returning to his green room to finish watching the game and prepare for his set.

After the game, fans who had purchased on-field passes streamed on to the base path between first and third to take in the show from a very cool vantage point. Approximately 30 minutes later, Kip took the stage, where he put on an amazing show. He even ran from his stage behind second base all the way to the Visitors’ dugout, where he hopped on top for some hugs and dancing with fans in the stands during his Double Platinum breakout hit, “Somethin’ ‘Bout A Truck.”

Here are some photos from the show:

Thanks to Kip for coming out to Miller Park and putting on such a great show!

Singer/songwriter Kip Moore quickly established himself as one of country music’s premier rising stars when he shot out of the gate with his debut album Up All Night spawning three number one smash hits including “Beer Money,” the Platinum certified “Hey Pretty Girl,” and Moore’s Double Platinum breakout hit “Somethin’ ‘Bout A Truck.”

A relentless road warrior, multi-Platinum singer/songwriter Kip Moore recently kicked off the second leg of his Wild Ones Tour that will include a string of headlining dates in the UK and Ireland as well as shows scheduled in Australia for the first time.  Moore’s new single “Running For You” was heralded by Billboard as “a career song from the album” and was the most added song in country radio in its debut week.  The single is taken from Moore’s critically-acclaimed second album Wild Ones – declared by Huffington Post as “one heck of an album… set to produce hit after hit after hit” while Entertainment Weekly proclaims it “reaches for the stadium’s nosebleeds.”

All fans who purchase tickets to the game will automatically have access to the free postgame concert. However, on-field passes are for the show are limited and available for $45 at brewers.com/concerts.

9-Year-Old Luka Receives VIP Treatment at Miller Park

As part of FOX Sports Wisconsin’s “Art of Hitting” telecast Tuesday, they taped a segment with 9-year-old Luka Braovac, who got a hitting lesson from Brewers Coach and former Major Leaguer Jason Lane.

9-year-old Luka Braovac gets a hitting lesson as Villar and Gennett look on.

Luka has brain cancer. He was diagnosed at age 7 and has endured numerous treatments over the last two years. His condition is improving. He watches Brewers games regularly and his favorite players are Jonathan Villar and Scooter Gennett.

Those two surprised Luka during the lesson and had some fun with him before BP yesterday. Manager Craig Counsell even invited Luka to sit in during his pre-game media session. The family then watched BP, went to TGI Friday’s for dinner, and made a booth visit during the game. Jonathan Villar promised Luka a win and delivered, notching his 50th stolen base on the season in the process.

Luka met with his two favorite players, Jonathan Villar and Scooter Gennett.
