Brewers Walk-Up & Entrance Music: Updated 7/30/15

For players, the song they choose for their walk-up or entrance music is often an important decision. What brief part of a song is going to send a message to the fans—and what do I want that message to be? Do I keep the same song that I had last year? What’s the hit that is going to produce the most hits? Is it a superstitious thing, do I want fans to sing along, or do I just use my favorite song right now?

If you’re like me and you’re attuned to the tunes, you probably enjoy seeing this list each year—and updating your iPod playlists accordingly.

DID YOU KNOW? Make sure you download the free Ballpark App! In addition to check-in offers, ballpark maps, game updates and more, one of the really cool features is “Ballpark Music.” Like a song you hear? Check it out on Ballpark–and you can even download it right there! No Shazam necessary!

About TeamSmile

TeamSmile is a non-profit organization that has created partnerships with professional sports teams, local dentists, dental organizations, dental schools, and area volunteers to help promote the importance of dental care. This event is funded by Brewers Community Foundation and Delta Dental.

Off to the Races! Time to Start Training for the Brewers Mini!

This summer, we’ve offered you a plethora of opportunities to run in, around and through Miller Park.

From the Brewers Community Foundation’s Famous Racing Sausages 5k Run/Walk which was held earlier this month to the Brewers Mini-Marathon +10K in September, there’s something for athletes of every level.

And, speaking of the Brewers Mini-Marathon + 10K, you have until this Friday (July 31) to sign up and save on the registration fee.

And, if you’re on the fence and concerned you won’t be ready in time, don’t fear. Thanks to Performance Running Outfitters (PRO), our official training partner of the Brewers Mini-Marathon + 10K, we’ve got training programs designed to help you hit your stride.

Performance Running Outfitters is locally owned by Trae and Jessica Hoepner, who together we have over 20 years of coaching and 30 years of running expertise. Once again, PRO is offering two different training programs, one to help you train for the Brewers Mini-Marathon (13.1) miles and another to help you tackle the 10K distance.

While the Brewers Mini training program is already underway, you still have until this Saturday (August 1) to sign up for the Brewers 10K Training Program, which begin at PRO’s locations in Brookfield and Shorewood.

A Brewers Mini-Marathon poster hangs proudly in Performance Running Outfitters' Brookfield location. PRO is the official training partner of the Brewers Mini + 10K.

Here’s what that entails:

Brewers 10K Training Program

The Get Fit 10k program is geared towards the moderately fit runner, former runner, or beginning runner who has already finished a 5k and wants more of a challenge with weekly motivation. This is a progressive course which will focus on completing a longer distance each week.  Performance Running Outfitters will provide a training program, weekly emails with motivation and necessary information for runners.

It is recommended that you can run a 5k before beginning this program and have an “ok” from a medical professional with a clean bill of health. The program will begin on Monday, August 3 (Shorewood) or Tuesday, August 4 (Brookfield) and meet for 8 weeks. Runners looking for additional group support are encouraged to attend PRO’s Thursday fun runs.

For a $75 fee (which does not include race registration), program participants will receive:

  • Tech Tee and Running Socks
  • Weekly emails with advice from coach
  • PRO Coupon – 20% OFF
  • Video gait analysis with footwear recommendation
  • Seminars on cadence & speed, nutrition & hydration, etc.

This year’s training program is also supported by Turbana. They are providing training tips relating to hydration and nutrition in weekly newsletters as well as coupons for runners to save on bananas at their local Sendik’s store. 

“It’s all about getting knowledge and information to help you become a smart and healthy runner,” said Micaela, one of PRO’s friendly folks who helps run the program.

“Most people are more successful in a group setting. It’s all about camaraderie and having fun while you’re out there. Training by yourself can become mundane, especially in the summer when it’s hot out. Here, we have new topics every week. We cover everything from hydration and nutrition to proper running form to good shoes, etc., so the goal in the end is to prepare them to run the race, so they also have a good mindset of what they’re getting into.”

Michaela says the folks who participate in the program run the gamut from beginners to people who participate every year because they like the camaraderie and accountability.

For more information, or to register for this program, click here. You can also register in person at one of the PRO locations.

Speaking of training… you can now pick up these special “in training” shirts,, along with official Brewers Mini +10k hoodies, new ½ zips and other merchandise at BrewersMini.com.  Items may also be available at packet pick-up on September 24 and 25, while supplies last.

In Training Shirts

Running not your thing? Don’t forget we’ve got our “Hitting 4 the Cycle” Bike to Miller Park event coming up in less than two weeks!

Good luck!

Bill Schroeder Enshrined on “Brewers Wall of Honor”

Former player and current TV analyst Bill Schroeder was enshrined on the “Brewers Wall of Honor” at Miller Park in a pregame ceremony tonight.

The “Wall of Honor,” which was unveiled in 2014, commemorates Milwaukee Brewers players and broadcasters that meet a set criteria based on service to the Club.

Before the Brewers vs. Pirates game, the long-time broadcaster was surrounded by friends and family on the field as he received a replica of his plaque and threw out the ceremonial first pitch.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Schroeder returned for his 21st season in the Brewers broadcast booth this year. He began his career behind the mic as the Brewers’ color man after a distinguished playing career. Schroeder spent eight seasons in the big leagues with the Brewers and California Angels, posting a career-best .332 batting average in 1987. He caught Juan Nieves’ no-hitter on April 15, 1987 at Baltimore in the midst of the team’s Major League record-tying 13-0 start. In addition, he clubbed a career-high 14 home runs and had 42 RBI that season.

The “Wall of Honor” is a permanent display outside of Miller Park on the North side of the stadium adjacent to the Hot Corner entrance. Honorees on the wall each have a plaque with their photo and a brief synopsis of their career. The plaques are designed by Matthews International, designers of the plaques for the National Baseball Hall of Fame as well as the plaques on the Milwaukee Braves Wall of Honor at Miller Park.

Members who meet any of the following criteria while wearing a Brewers uniform will be inducted into the Wall of Honor:

  • 2,000 or more plate appearances
  • 1,000 or more innings pitched
  • 250 appearances as a pitcher
  • Winner of a major award (MVP, Cy Young, Rookie of the Year, or Fireman of the Year)
  • Manager of a pennant-winner
  • Individuals memorialized as a statue on the Miller Park plaza
  • Members of the National Baseball Hall of Fame who have played for the Brewers

In addition, the above criteria has been updated to allow the team to honor longtime broadcasters who played for the team. Any alum who donned a Brewers uniform for any length of time and served as a primary broadcaster for at least 20 seasons with the team will be eligible for the “Wall of Honor.”

Last year’s inaugural class included 58 members enshrined on the Brewers Wall of Honor. John Axford, Ryan Braun, Prince Fielder, Yovani Gallardo, Carlos Gomez, J.J. Hardy, Corey Hart, Jonathan Lucroy and Rickie Weeks are the nine active players that, as of today, qualify for induction into the Wall of Honor following their retirement.

Wear Your Player Gear to Miller Park This Homestand and Save!

You probably were already planning on it, but you’ll want to be sure to wear your Brewers player apparel to Miller Park this homestand (July 17-22).

When you wear your player gear (past or present) at the Brewers Team Store, you will receive a coupon for an immediate $5 discount off of your purchase of player product, including player name and number t-shirts, player fashion tees, player-designed caps, bobbles, pennants, jerseys, photos, etc. (Sorry– game-used memorabilia is not included.)

MB-15-Player-Product-Social-720x720

Your savings will be valid that day only at the following Miller Park locations: any of the four Brewers Team Store locations, Hank’s Hangout and Bernie’s Chalet.

In case you haven’t already seen some of the awesome new player-designed caps and fashion tees, I’ve got a look at some of them here for you.

First, player-designed caps.

Back in January at Brewers On Deck, some of the guys were excited about the opportunity to design their own New Era caps.

Davis Caps
Khri wanted to change things up a bit. Davis choose to mix in some different designs and fashions for his two caps and loved the experience, as well as the finished product. “I could design caps all day!” he exclaimed.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Gennett Caps 
Scooter really wanted to base his caps on designs that are different and not typically seen in stores. Scooter actually designed his own “SG2” logo, which is featured on all three of his caps. Upon seeing the finished product, Scooter thought that each cap turned out looking “sick.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Gomez Caps
Carlos loves gold and so it’s no surprise that the Gold Glove centerfielder made sure to incorporate gold in each of his cap designs.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Lucroy Caps
Essentially, Luc wanted something that he could wear while duck hunting… so camo it is!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Peralta Caps
Wily also had a lot of fun designing his caps and stuck with the trendy camo look for one of his designs. He also made sure that one of his caps would have his nickname, “Big Wily,” on the back.  After picking up 17 wins last year, he can put whatever he wants on his cap design!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Next, the players weighed in on their unique t-shirt designs.

Gennett T-Shirt
Scooter was also very hands on with his t-shirt design and sent in multiple sketches and drafts of what he was looking for. He loves outer space and astronomy, so he wanted his shirt to depict himself hitting a baseball, while on the moon, out into space.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Gomez T-Shirt
Carlos liked his New Era caps so much that he decided he wanted to have his shirt design match, bringing in highlights of the same unique camo and coloring.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Lucroy T-Shirt
Luc couldn’t help but copy Gomez, as he also choose to have one of his cap designs be used for his t-shirt design.

Bill Schroeder to be Placed on “Brewers Wall of Honor”

Former player and current TV analyst Bill Schroeder will be enshrined on the “Brewers Wall of Honor” at Miller Park in a pregame ceremony this Friday, July 17. The “Wall of Honor,” which was unveiled in 2014, commemorates Milwaukee Brewers players and broadcasters that meet a set criteria based on service to the Club.

The “Wall of Honor” is a permanent display outside of Miller Park on the North side of the stadium adjacent to the Hot Corner entrance.

The plaques are designed by Matthews International, designers of the plaques for the National Baseball Hall of Fame as well as the plaques on the Milwaukee Braves Wall of Honor at Miller Park.

A pre-game ceremony to honor Schroeder will be held on Friday, July 17 when the Brewers face the Pirates at Miller Park.  The long-time broadcaster will be surrounded by friends and family on the field and will throw out the ceremonial first pitch.

Getting Set for Tomorrow’s Miller Park Soccer Match

 

 

On the heels of the U.S. Women’s National Team’s World Cup victory, we’re pretty pumped up for tomorrow’s soccer match at Miller Park.

Last night, both Atlas F.C. and Newcastle United F.C. arrived in Milwaukee:

and both teams took part in practices today at Marquette’s Valley Fields.

In addition, to preview this event, we held a press conference at Miller Park today.  Newcastle Coach Steve McClaren, Jack Colback, a central midfielder from Newcastle United, Atlas Coach Gustavo Matosas and Aldo Leao Ramirez, a central midfielder from Club Atlas were on hand for the event.

Each of the participants expressed how excited they are to be playing the match at Miller Park–and that they’ve already been impressed by the fan support in Wisconsin as many showed up for this morning’s practices.

“I think the atmosphere will be good. I think there is going to be at least 25,000 here, which is a great turnout. We all know how enthusiastic American fans are,” said Colback.

Newcastle Coach McClaren said,  “It’s great! It was strange because they are in the Newcastle shirts and they have American accents, so that’s a little unusual. Also as Jack was saying, tomorrow’s game with 25-30,000 people will be a great atmosphere against a very good team. Again I reiterate that Milwaukee, we’ve only been here a day but it’s very nice. The weather is good; far better than back home so we will enjoy the preparation and then the game.”

Atlas Coach Matosas echoed Coach McClaren’s sentiment saying, “Milwaukee is beautiful. I don’t know Milwaukee, but Milwaukee is really beautiful. Beautiful city.”

Following the press conference, the media also had the chance to take the field for a match.

The media had a chance to test out the soccer pitch at Miller park this afternoon.

Tickets are still available for tomorrow’s match. Prices range from $25 – $70. Parking is $20 in advance and $25 on the day of the match. Fans can purchase tickets online at Brewers.com/soccer, in person at the Miller Park Box Office, or by phone at 414-902-4000.

In addition, all fans who attend the match will receive a voucher at the gate that will allow them to receive $15 off a future Brewers home game in the month of August. The voucher is valid for 14 games in the month, excluding August 1, 2, 8 and 15And the first 10,000 adults 18 and over will receive a reversible soccer scarf featuring the logos and colors of the Newcastle and Atlas Clubs, courtesy of Potawatomi Hotel and Casino.
