“PINK OUT MILLER PARK” SET FOR SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 6

To raise awareness and funding for breast cancer research and prevention, the Milwaukee Brewers, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel and thousands of Brewers fans are joining forces for a placard display that will “Pink Out Miller Park.”

On Saturday, September 6, the Milwaukee Brewers will face the St. Louis Cardinals at Miller Park at 6:10 p.m. Each fan attending the game will have a specially-designed card affixed to their seat, and at the end of the 4th inning, they will hold them up to form a giant image in the ballpark. The image (rendering attached) will turn the ballpark into a sea of pink and white, including ribbons that have become synonymous with efforts related to breast cancer research and awareness.

Join us on Saturday, September 6 as we support breast cancer research and #PinkOutMillerPark!

 “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” is presented by Boston Store. Froedtert and Medical College of Wisconsin is the supporting sponsor.

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

  • Brewers President – Baseball Operations and General Manager Doug Melvin and his wife, Ellen, will do a check presentation of funds that were raised through their donations and a personal campaign. Proceeds benefit After Breast Cancer Diagnosis – ABCD, Wisconsin Breast Cancer Showhouse, and the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure.
  • There will be an on-field presentation recognizing Froedtert and Medical College of Wisconsin for their efforts to defeat breast cancer.
  • The Ceremonial 1st Pitch will be tossed by Milwaukee Journal Sentinel Publisher Betsy Brenner, a breast cancer survivor.
  • Breast cancer survivors will take the field with our starting lineup and stand with the players for the national anthem.
  • A donation from Brewers Community Foundation will be made to support related charities.

“Journal Sentinel is proud to partner with the Milwaukee Brewers, Boston Store, Froedtert and Medical College of Wisconsin Cancer Center and After Breast Cancer Diagnosis to bring this historic ‘Pink Out’ to Miller Park and to Milwaukee,” Brenner said. “It’s a very visible demonstration of our shared commitment to end breast cancer in our lifetimes – and our support of the women and families who battle this disease every day.”

In addition, fans can 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 will be held on the Field Level Concourse. Prizes will feature 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 will be sold outside of Miller Park.

Fans will be encouraged to help raise awareness through social media, using the hashtag #PinkOutMillerPark.

Aaron Rodgers, Sophia Minnaert Respond to Brewers “Ice Bucket Challenge”

Over the weekend, the Ice Bucket Challenge made its way through the Brewers Clubhouse, starting with Ryan Braun on Saturday and culminating with Kyle Lohse, Jonathan Lucroy and Carlos Gomez on Sunday.

Brewers Ice Bucket Challenge

Designed to help raise money and awareness for ALS, the Ice Bucket Challenge is quite simple: Fill up a bucket of ice water, as cold as you can get. Have someone record a video while you dump the bucket over your head. Then share on social media, issuing the challenge to three friends.

Yesterday, Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (via Jonathan Lucroy);PGA golfer Jason Dufner (via Kyle Lohse, likely as payback for the Stadium Shootout Golf Challenge); and FOX Sports Wisconsin’s Sophia Minnaert (via Carlos Gomez) were tapped for the challenge and so far, two of the three complied.

Aaron Rodgers:

 

Sophia Minnaert:

 

No word yet from Jason Dufner, but we’ll give him an extension on the 24-hour window commonly given for the challenge, as the golfer was forced to withdraw from the 2014 PGA Championship after nine holes on Thursday due to bulging discs in his neck.

Thanks to each of these Ice Bucket Challenge participants for being such good sports and helping to raise awareness and funds for ALS. To learn more about how you can help, click here.

Word to Your Mother! Vanilla Ice Visits Miller Park

Vanilla Ice, the American rapper, actor and television host best known for hit single, “Ice Ice Baby”  stopped by Miller Park on his way to a gig at the Wisconsin State Fair.

If you’ll recall, earlier this season, the Brew Crew had a “Rappers and Wranglers” Road Trip, which resulted in Lyle Overbay dressing up like Mr. Ice himself:

So, it was great to see them meet in the dugout, along with other Brewers players and coaches before tonight’s Brewers vs. Dodgers game:

It’s Golf Night at Miller Park!

Tonight, along with the PGA of America and Kohler Co., we’re celebrating “Golf Night at Miller Park”!

We’re just about one year-out from the 2015 PGA Championship, which is preparing to make its third visit to Whistling Straits in nearby Kohler, Wis., August 10-16, 2015.

We 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.

And tonight, we’ve got a variety of opportunities and activities for fans:

  • The first 25,000 adults who entered the stadium received a Brewers Coupon book; inside the book is 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 this pin flag signed by Jason Dufner and Kyle Lohse:

Lohse Dufner Flag

 

If you didn’t receive the coupon book, you can still pre-register by completing the free and required online ticket pre-registration by tomorrow at www.PGAChampionship.com in order to be eligible to purchase tickets during the public sale, which will run August 11-30, 2014.

  • Prior to the game, fans were able to 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 also be chosen to participate in a putting contest on top of the Brewers dugout and had 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.
