RBI Athlete of the Month: Dylan Mercer

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. Each month, we honor RBI student athletes on the diamond that portray dedication to academics, community involvement, leadership, reliability and monthly performance.

This month’s honoree is Dylan Mercer.

Dylan Mercer 2

Dylan plays many positions, catcher, third base and outfield. He is an overall outstanding athlete. Dylan is coachable, respectful, hardworking and humble. He understands the importance of teamwork and interacts positively with his teammates as well as players on the opposing team. Not only is Dylan an incredible baseball player, he prides himself on excelling academically. He maintains a 3.6 GPA at Milwaukee School of Languages.

Dylan Mercer

Thanks, Dylan, for your passion for baseball!

Want to help support the RBI Program? It’s as simple as sending a tweet!

When a Brewers pitcher strikes out an opposing batter, make sure to jump on Twitter and tweet: #WHIFF  and include our handle, @Brewers.

That’s all you have to do! Each month, if we’re in the top 7 teams, we can win anywhere from $2,500 to $10,000 for our local RBI program. AND the team with the most #Whiff tweets for the season will receive an additional $20,000 donation! 

We won $7500 the first four months of the season, so keep tweeting as our chances to help the local program are looking good! View the current standings at mlb.com/whiff.

NEW SECURITY PROCEDURES TO BE INSTALLED AT MILLER PARK

In coordination with new procedures established by Major League Baseball, today we announced that all fans will be screened by metal detectors on Thursday, September 11 against the Miami Marlins and again on Saturday, September 13 against the Cincinnati Reds.

Fans are encouraged to arrive early on those dates to accommodate the screenings.

The Brewers have screened fans at select gates this year for multiple games, but this will mark the first full-screening of all fans attending games. For other remaining regular season home games, the Brewers will continue to scan at select gates.

Fans will need to remove all metal from their pockets before walking through the metal detectors. This includes items such as phones and keys; however, wallets, shoes and belts will not need to be removed. Bags will continue to be checked at the gates. The list of prohibited items at Miller Park has not altered, but fans are reminded that the Brewers will not hold any prohibited items. Fans will have the option of taking the item back to their vehicle or the team will dispose of it for them.

The new protocols are part of a broader security program initiated this season by Major League Baseball. The process of screening all fans at all games will be fully implemented for the Postseason and for all Major League Baseball games in 2015.

Scenes from #BrewersSocial: Recapping Brewers Social Media Night

Thank you to all of the fans who came out to Brewers Social Media Night tonight–and thank you to everyone who follows us on all of our social platforms year-round. We love seeing your photos and engaging with you. And, at events like these, it is great meeting you in person, too!

We had a great crowd of over 250 fans for our special event tonight, which started out with fans checking in at Helfaer Field and receiving their special t-shirt featuring the #BrewersTeamSelfie:

Fans Cheering

Fans then had the opportunity to take selfies of their own with the FOX Sports Wisconsin Girls, Bernie Brewer (a #MVT in his own right) and the Klement’s Famous Racing Sausages while waiting for the #BrewersMVT ceremony to begin.

Last month, fans elected Carlos Gomez the 2014 #BrewersMVT…. yes, that’s right…M-V-T. Most valuable tweeter. This is the first year that we’ve bestowed this award and, as you know, since so many of the Brewers players are active on Twitter, there was some stiff competition. But, you voted with your hashtags and your heart and selected Brewers All-Star and Gold Glove Winner Carlos Gomez as your favorite follow.

Perhaps it was the #BrewersTeamSelfie that put him over the edge, his photos of his teammates sleeping on the plane, or his fondness for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, but whatever it was, it’s clear that Carlos Gomez keeps you entertained, not only on the field, but online as well.

We had a special award waiting for Carlos:

Brewers Radio Announcer (and avid tweeter) Joe Block was on hand to emcee the event:

Joe was about to present Carlos with his Golden Hashtag, but instead, Carlos surprised us all by pulling a fan out of the crowd to give it to him. “The fans voted for me, they should present it,” he said.

Ever the “social” butterfly, Carlos pulled out his phone and took a video of the crowd, which he posted to Instagram and Twitter on the spot:

Following the award ceremony, Carlos answered a few questions that had been tweeted in advance from fans. Then, we drew a grand prize: A Carlos Gomez package featuring the opportunity to take a selfie with Carlos on the field. Here’s the result:

Gomez Selfie

Many other fans walked away with prize packages as well:

Other Winners

Following the event, fans went inside Miller Park to watch the Crew take on the Marlins.

Hashtags

Here are some “best-of” tweets and Instagram posts from the fans throughout the night. You can find a comprehensive stream at brewers.com/socialmedianight.

 

Thank you also to FOX Sports Wisconsin for their coverage of our event:

 

Thank you once again to those who were able to join us and  those of you who follow us on social all year long! You make my job fun!

Oh, yes–one more thing.  Just a quick reminder that we’re closing in on one million fans on Facebook. If you’re not already following us there, please do! When we reach that milestone, one lucky fan will win a VIP package.

Fans Come Together to “Pink Out Miller Park”

To raise awareness and funding for breast cancer research and prevention, last night, the Milwaukee Brewers, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel and thousands of Brewers fans joined forces to “Pink Out Miller Park.”

Each fan attending the game had  a specially-designed card affixed to their seat, and at the end of the 4th inning, they held them up to form this image, turning the ballpark into a sea of pink and white, including ribbons that have become synonymous with efforts related to breast cancer research and awareness.

Pink Out Miller Park

“The Journal Sentinel approached us with this concept recently, and we recognized immediately that it would be a great way to cap our many efforts related to breast cancer research, prevention and treatment,” said Milwaukee Brewers Chief Operating Officer Rick Schlesinger. “Nearly everyone has been impacted by this disease, and we are grateful to be involved in what we know will be a memorable and impactful event.”

“Pink Out Miller Park” was presented by Boston Store. Froedtert and Medical College of Wisconsin was the supporting sponsor.

 

Prior to the game, there were many other related events occurring, including the following:

  • Brewers President – Baseball Operations and General Manager Doug Melvin and his wife, Ellen, did a check presentation for $57,500, funds that were raised through their donations and a personal campaign. Over the past 9 seasons, the Melvins have raised $520,000 for breast cancer. Proceeds benefit After Breast Cancer Diagnosis – ABCD, Wisconsin Breast Cancer Showhouse, and the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure.
  • There was an on-field presentation recognizing Froedtert and Medical College of Wisconsin for their efforts to defeat breast cancer.
  • The Ceremonial 1st Pitch was tossed by Milwaukee Journal Sentinel Publisher Betsy Brenner, a breast cancer survivor.
  • Eleven breast cancer survivors took the field with our starting lineup and stood with the players for the national anthem.

Pink Out Survivors

In addition, fans could contribute to the cause through several on-site fundraising opportunities. Proceeds from the following initiatives will all go toward After Breast Cancer Diagnosis – ABCD and the Medical College of Wisconsin Cancer Center:

  • A raffle was held on the Field Level Concourse. Prizes featured a ceremonial first pitch before a 2015 Brewers game, a spot in a Mini Famous Racing Sausages race, an opportunity to watch batting practice from the field, and more.
  • Pink hankies were sold outside of Miller Park.

Fans were also encouraged to help raise awareness through social media, using the hashtag #PinkOutMillerPark Here are a few moments captured by fans last night:

 

Thank you to those who participated in this very special night at Miller Park.
