Get Your 2014 Brewers Specialty Player Tees; Plus, Save with the Brand New “Moon Shot” Markdown Promotion!

Expand your collection of Brewers player tees by purchasing any of our new 2014 specialty designs, exclusive to Miller Park!

Choose from styles featuring:

Scooter Gennett

Scooter Gennett Tee

Scooter asked for a universe/stars-type “out there” theme. The front is an eclipse and his name/number are “moon texture.”

Carlos Gomez

Carlos Gomez Tee

The front of this tee is “dirty” because Gomez plays hard, making great catches and sliding into the plate. The back is Go Go catching a fly ball as a tribute to his Gold Glove award from 2013.

Jean Segura

Chef Segura Tee

Segura likes to cook and is known by some as “Chef Segura,” so we combined a tailgate theme with Segura cooking.

Jonathan Lucroy

This one doesn’t need a lot of explanation, it’s just pretty cool.

and Bob Uecker!

photo 2

The Uecker tee plays off of his iconic plaid sport coats and, of course, the fact that he’s a broadcaster.

These specialty player tees are exclusive to Miller Park and are available in men’s sizes SM-XXL (sorry, no women’s or youth tees in these styles).

Both regular and specialty player tees retail for $32 each at the Brewers Team Stores at Miller Park, but fans may find the prices reduced as part of the brand new Moon Shot Markdown promotion.

MB-14 Moon Shot Markdown-Facebook

The Moonshot Markdown promotion replaces the Walk-0ff Wednesdays promotion we’ve had in the past, giving fans more opportunities for greater savings.

With the Moon Shot Markdown, during each home game at Miller Park, each time a Brewers player hits a home run, fans are eligible to receive $5 off that player’s name and number tee (including the specialty tees shown here–sorry, guys, doesn’t look like the Uecker tee will be included).

So for example, if Jonathan Lucroy hits a home run, his t-shirt goes from $32 to $27… if he hits two dingers in the game, you’re down to $22 and so on and so forth.

Just another thing to look forward to this season at Miller Park, but you might want to snap up one of these player tees before the season starts as I’m sure they’ll fly off the shelves faster than a Go Go moon shot flies out of Miller Park!

Can’t make it out to Miller Park anytime soon? Never fear–there’s also a large selection of player tees available on brewers.com. (Note: Product purchased online does not qualify for Moon Shot Markdown.)

Happy shopping!

TGI Fridays at Miller Park Gets a Facelift

Earlier this month, we informed you that the TGI Fridays at Miller Park was undergoing renovations as part of a new contemporary design being implemented at Fridays restaurants throughout the country.

Now, we’ve got photos of the finished project here for you!

The newly-redesigned Fridays has a fun, energetic vibe with a dramatically redesigned bar as the focal point of the restaurant, complemented with favorite Fridays menu items.

The project included interior modifications and upgrades, new brick wall surfaces, updated finishes and décor and lighting improvements.  The modernized bar features a new granite surface with stainless steel rails, LED accent lighting, custom wood paneling at the bar back (accented by multi-color LED lighting), columns wrapped with subway tile and new seating.  The project also included exterior façade enhancements at the entrances located on the field level concourse.

The new redesign is tailored to the Milwaukee community and location, and is part of a larger re-imaging campaign that Fridays will roll out over the next three years.

Other Miller Park improvement projects underway for 2014 include a redeveloped Toyota Territory, Brewers Team Store by Majestic expansion, a new Authentics Kiosk, the addition of an AJ Bombers facility, the new Brewers Wall of Honor, a Bob Uecker “Last Row” statue, refurbishment of the East Lot Tailgate Pavilions and new flat-panel televisions on the concourses.

Glowing & Growing at Miller Park

We were so happy to see that the tarp had come off of the field last week; seeing that lush, green grass at Miller Park reminds us that baseball (and spring!) is just around the corner.

This year, Brewers Director of Grounds Michael Boettcher and his staff have taken new measures to ensure that the grass is ready for Opening Day and stays extra-healthy all season, assisting their quality field maintenance program.

Last Monday, March 10, they started treating the field with grow lights. The lights run almost 24/7 on the infield and sidelines, giving the grass a reduced level of synthetic sunlight.

The Grounds Crew will treat everyday until the Exhibition Games next Friday and Saturday and then throughout the entire growing season (both at night and during the day when the team is out of town).

So, next time you drive by Miller Park at night and see that glow, you’ll be reminded of lush green grass and all of the fun, exciting Brewers Baseball you have to look forward to being played on it all season long!

Collection Drive Added to Tomorrow’s “Ballpark Pup” Public Appearance at Miller Park

For tomorrow morning’s event featuring Hank the Dog at Miller Park, the Brewers are encouraging fans to bring new pet items with them to donate. A “Wish List” is below, and the items collected will be distributed to area animal rescue organizations.

 The Brewers also ask that fans leave their pets at home tomorrow as they will not be able to come into Miller Park or the store.

As a reminder, fans will be allowed entry into the Miller Park Hot Corner entrance at 6 am tomorrow, and the Team Store by Majestic will open at 7 am. Hank t-shirts and other memorabilia will be available for the first time to area fans and with the purchase of any Hank item, 20% of the retail price will be donated to the Wisconsin Humane Society. Plus, fans will have an opportunity to meet Hank that morning at Miller Park. (Note: As of 11am CT on 3/18/14, Hank merchandise is now available online as well.)

Hank first appeared at camp on February 17, the day of the first workout for pitchers and catchers. The Brewers have worked closely with the Arizona and Wisconsin Humane Societies since that first day, and their staff provided counsel on how best to care for Hank’s basic needs as he adjusted to his new surroundings. Hank’s circle of caregivers in Phoenix worked tirelessly to make sure that he had the best care possible until his “forever home” was determined.

Assorted additional Hank gear like pennants, locker name plates, buttons and kids gear will also be available.

Hank made frequent appearances at Spring Training games in a concourse booth, where fans lined up for an opportunity to have their photo taken with Hank in exchange for a voluntary donation to the Humane Society. Through these and other opportunities, Hank has already helped raise thousands of dollars to support the cause.

Hank arrived in Milwaukee last night on a Southwest Airlines charter flight.

Red Carpet Rolled Out For Hank’s Arrival in Wisconsin

Hank is officially a resident of Wisconsin.

It was quite a scene at Milwaukee’s General Mitchell International Airport this evening as dignitaries, media and friends were all on hand to welcome Hank to his new home. Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele, Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett and Anne Reed, President & CEO of the Wisconsin Humane Society were on hand to give an official welcome.

The Southwest Airlines charter plane from Phoenix that carried Hank was full of Brewers sponsors and employees landed around 6:25 p.m.  The media lined up for the first shot of Hank and those on hand clapped and cheered as Brewers Chief Operating Officer Rick Schlesinger walked Hank up the jetway to the gate.  Hank and the dignitaries did a number of interviews for the media before heading home.

As Hank and the group proceeded from the gate to the main concourse at the airport, everyone was greeted with another surprise.  Several hundred people were gathered behind the security checkpoints to greet Hank.  Fans of all types had their cameras ready and cheered as Hank came up and greeted the public.  The city has really caught on to Hank and that was clear by the crowd on hand at the airport tonight.

The public will get a chance to meet Hank at Miller Park on Tuesday when the official Hank shirts and other items go on sale at the Brewers Team Store by Majestic.  The gear will go on sale at Miller Park at 7 a.m. and fans will be permitted to line up beginning at 6 a.m. that day.  There will be a limit of four t-shirts per person (no limits on other items).  Hank will make his first Wisconsin public appearance at the Brewers Team Store by Majestic from about 7 – 8 a.m. on Tuesday for fans who purchased the shirts to get a photo with the “ballpark pup.”

Hank to Make Guest Appearance at Miller Park to Raise Funds for Humane Society; By Popular Demand, Hank Gear to Be Available Tuesday at 7am CT

Hank “The Ballpark Pup” will make a grand arrival in Milwaukee tonight via Southwest Airlines charter flight, setting foot/paw on the grounds that he can now call his “forever home.”  The once-homeless dog who has taken the hearts of Brewers fans, players employees, and pet lovers everywhere will arrive at Milwaukee’s General Mitchell International Airport at 6:25 pm.

Brewers fans will be able to take part in the excitement and contribute to a great cause starting on Tuesday when Hank t-shirts and other memorabilia will arrive and be available to the public at the Brewers Team Store by Majestic at Miller Park.  With the purchase of any Hank item, 20% of the retail price will be donated to the Wisconsin Humane Society. Plus, fans will have an opportunity to meet Hank that morning at Miller Park.

Hank gear is also available at the Brewers Team Store at Maryvale Baseball Park in Phoenix with 20% of the sales of those shirts being donated back to the Arizona Humane Society.

A small advance shipment of items hit the shelves in Maryvale this weekend, and supplies were quickly exhausted.

“There are two questions that everyone has asked from the very first days of Hank’s arrival: ‘Where will he live?,’ and ‘Will there be Hank-themed apparel?,’ said Brewers Chief Operating Officer Rick Schlesinger. “We’re thrilled to be partnering with the Wisconsin and Arizona Humane Societies in helping not only raise funds to benefit the cause, but also elevate awareness for the problem of stray animals in Wisconsin, Arizona and beyond.”

The gear will go on sale at Miller Park at 7 a.m. on Tuesday and fans will be permitted to line up beginning at 6 a.m. that day.  There will be a limit of four t-shirts per person (no limits on other items).

Hank will make his first Wisconsin public appearance at the Brewers Team Store by Majestic from approximately 7 – 8 a.m. on Tuesday for fans who purchased the shirts to get a photo with the “ballpark pup.”

“We couldn’t be more grateful to the Brewers for this generous and unexpected gift,” said Anne Reed, President & CEO of the Wisconsin Humane Society. “We depend upon community support to help more than 25,000 companion and wild animals every year, and it is astounding and inspiring to us that little Hank will help save the lives of so many homeless animals.”

Hank first appeared at camp on February 17, the day of the first workout for pitchers and catchers.

3/17/14 Update: For those of you asking if you can purchase Hank gear online–we hope that the items will be available online soon, but unfortunately, they are currently not; however, you can call the Brewers Team Store at (414) 902-4750 and they will take your order over the phone and ship it to you!

Kyle Lohse Bobblehead Revealed

As you know, this year, we’ve got our #Brewers14in14… 14 All-Fan Giveaways–8 bobbleheads and 6 t-shirts–during the 2014 season!

As we get images of the bobbles, we’ll unveil them here and across our social media channels.

So far, we’ve revealed the first bobblehead of the season, the Carlos Gomez Gold Glove bobblehead on Sunday, April 27 vs. the Chicago Cubs.

Now, we’ve got the second bobblehead here for you–the Kyle Lohse bobblehead, presented by Toyota, on Sunday, May 11 vs. the New York Yankees.

MB-14-Lohse-Bobble-social

The bobblehead is posed in his windup and features Lohse’s signature goatee.

I caught up with Kyle to get his thoughts on the bobblehead. “It looks pretty cool,” he said…  and then he informed me that he’s never had a bobblehead before. I was incredulous. This is a World Series Champion who was drafted in 1996,  made his Major League debut in 2001, has played in six Major League organizations…and he’s never been immortalized in bobble form?!?

“I guess I finally made it,” he said with a smile.

Individual tickets  are on sale now and the May 11 game is sure to be a hot ticket. Not only is it Kyle Lohse Bobblehead Day, but it is also Mother’s Day, plus we’re playing the Yankees and it’s Brewers fans last chance to see Derek Jeter play at Miller Park before he retires.

In short, you’ll want to visit brewers.com or call (414) 902-4000 to secure yours today!

Miller Park TGI Fridays Set for Remodel Project This Spring

Along with the many other enhancements this winter at Miller Park, fans will be able to enjoy year-round dining in a renovated TGI Fridays as the space is scheduled for upgrades this month, as part of a new contemporary design being implemented at Fridays restaurants throughout the country.

“Fridays is a popular dining destination for our fans year-round,” said Milwaukee Brewers Chief Operating Officer Rick Schlesinger. “We look forward to enhancing the facility as it contributes to the best fan experience in a Major League Baseball ballpark.”

“The new design of Fridays’ reimaged restaurants, coupled with our fresh, hand crafted food and drinks, has been extremely well-received in other markets.  We are excited to be bringing these changes to Milwaukee where they will be complemented by the contagious energy and personality of the Fridays’ team members who love providing a great experience to every guest,” said Ricky Richardson, President, TGI Fridays USA. “Brewers fans are upbeat, friendly and fun – just like Fridays – and we look forward to continuing to be a central place where Brewers fans gather and celebrate for many more years to come.”

The new redesign is tailored to the Milwaukee community and location, and is part of a larger re-imaging campaign that Fridays will roll out over the next three years.
