Joe Adcock Inducted Into Miller Park “Walk of Fame”

The Milwaukee Brewers honored former Milwaukee Braves first basemen, the late Joe Adcock, with an induction into the Miller Park Walk of Fame this afternoon.

Joe's wife, Joan, stands near his spot on the Walk of Fame.

Joe’s wife, Joan, stands near his spot on the Walk of Fame.

After his family visited his spot on the Walk of Fame, Joe’s son, Jay, spoke to the media at a special press conference. There, Jay relayed the story of how his father and mother met, when Joe was injured and Joan was his nurse, as well as a funny anecdote about his mother’s first time coming to a game to watch his father play.

Following the press conference, there was an on-field ceremony, emceed by Bill Schroeder.

Adcock received 23 of 34 votes (67.61%), exceeding the threshold of 65% needed for election. Adcock fell one vote shy of election in 2015.

Adcock spent 17 seasons in the Major Leagues, including 10 with the Braves.  His tenure in Milwaukee spanned from 1953 to 1962, as he batted .285 with 239 HR and 760 RBI in 1207 games.  Adcock notched a number of memorable feats while playing for the Braves.  On April 14, 1953, he recorded the first base hit and scored the first run in County Stadium history. The following year, on July 31, 1954, he belted four home runs with a double at Brooklyn’s Ebbets Field, setting a single-game record of 18 total bases, which lasted 48 years.

Adcock was also a member of the Braves 1957 World Championship team. He drove in the lone run in a 1-0 Game 5 World Series win vs. the New York Yankees. The Braves went on to defeat the Yankees, four games to three. On May 26, 1959, Adcock broke up Harvey Haddix’s 12-inning no-hitter with a walk-off double at County Stadium. Adcock ranks third in Milwaukee Braves history in hits (1206), home runs, RBI and total bases (2164).

Past inductees to the Walk of Fame include Hank Aaron, Rollie Fingers, Paul Molitor and Robin Yount in 2001; Commissioner Bud Selig and Cecil Cooper in 2002; Bob Uecker and Harry Dalton in 2003; Jim Gantner and Gorman Thomas in 2004; Don Money and Harvey Kuenn in 2005; Eddie Mathews, Warren Spahn and John Quinn in 2007 (the first year that former Braves players appeared on the ballot); Lew Burdette in 2010, Johnny Logan in 2013 and Teddy Higuera in 2015.

Each inductee is honored with a granite plaque that is placed into the terrace area walkway that surrounds Miller Park.  The Adcock plaque, which will be located on the outdoor plaza terrace along the left field side of the ballpark, will be available for photo opportunities as well.

Family Day Fun at Miller Park

Today was the annual “Family Day” at Miller Park, a fun-filled event where the family members of players and coaches get to come on the field and play baseball, visit with the mascots, take photos and participate in other fun activities before the game.

As expected, much cuteness ensued.

There was new dad Andy Wilkins:

And that's what it's all about. #Brewers #FamilyDay

7-Year-Old Liamani Segura Wows Crowd with Rendition of National Anthem

Last year, young Liamani Segura wowed the crowd with a beautiful rendition of the national anthem at just 6 years old.

Tonight, the now 7-year-old Liamani blew the crowd away once again before a crowd of 44,000 plus, so we just had to share the video here with you.

She received a big ovation from the crowd and rave reviews among the players and coaches as well, as they gathered to congratulate her on her performance on her way off the field:

ALS Awareness Day at Miller Park

Tonight the ALS Association Wisconsin Chapter is hosting its 5th annual “Chasin’ A Cure Tailgate Event” at Miller Park. The tailgate included great food and drinks, a collectible T-shirt, a performance by local country band Chasin’ Mason, and appearance by Brewers first baseman Chris “Sleepy” Carter.

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, is a motor neuron disease. Lou Gehrig brought worldwide attention to the disease in 1939, when he abruptly retired from baseball after his ALS diagnosis. The ALS Association Wisconsin Chapter provides education, guidance, services and support to ALS patients, their families and caregivers, promotes public awareness and raises funds for ALS research. Supporter TJ Kammien also threw out the ceremonial first pitch.

Pokémania at Miller Park

The Milwaukee Brewers are excited to announce Pokémania at Miller Park. Intrepid Pokémon trainers should stock up on Poké Balls as they will have the opportunity to Catch ‘Em All at Miller Park prior to Tuesday’s battle against the Arizona Arboks.

On Tuesday, July 26th, Gym Leader Bernie Brewer will be placing Lures at all of the Pokéstops inside of Miller Park starting when the gates open (5:40pm) and concluding at the start of the game (7:10pm). Whether you are searching for a rare Mewtwo or simply catching every Rattata and Pidgey you can find, trainers will have 90 minutes to fill their Pokédex with an onslaught of Pocket Monsters at Miller Park.

Don't disturb a wild Pokemon in its natural habitat. #GottaCatchEmAll #PokemonGo

BASEBALL HALL OF FAME TOUR OPENS TOMORROW AT MILLER PARK

The historic Baseball Hall of Fame Tour (We Are Baseball) has made its way to Miller Park and is set to open to the public tomorrow (Friday, July 15) as the first-ever Major League city stop on its multi-year journey to dozens of cities across North America, bringing to fans a one-of-a-kind baseball experience through the illustrious history of the game with cutting-edge technology and digital media. Baseball fans in Milwaukee will be able to visit the one-of-a-kind mobile exhibit galleries in one of Miller Park’s parking lots through the end of the month.

Tickets are available now on the Tour’s official website, HallofFameTour.com.

We Are Baseball was developed with content provided by The National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum and through a partnership with IMAX Corporation, MLBAM, Boston Red Sox chairman Tom Werner, CAA, and United Talent Agency, along with Arny Granat and Grand Slam Productions.

Today I was fortunate enough to get a sneak peek of the Tour, so here are some highlights that Iwas excited to check out.

IMAX MOVIE

Central to the fan experience is a mobile IMAX theater showcasing an original IMAX film highlighting the past, present and future of baseball. The 12-minute film is very moving and features never-before-seen new content as well as historical footage.

TECHNOLOGY

To celebrate the shared experiences and bonds fans have for the sport, one-of-a-kind historical artifacts were curated by baseball historians and will be exhibited in unprecedented ways through state-of-the-art technology. This dynamic, customizable and sharable traveling exhibit will allow fans to “experience” the stories, traditions and stars covering baseball’s past and present like never before – from the game’s greatest luminaries, ranging from Honus Wagner to Willie Mays, Babe Ruth to Clayton Kershaw, and personalities and moments, like world renowned broadcaster Harry Caray or Bill Mazeroski’s legendary World Series-winning home run, to Fenway Park’s famed “Green Monster.” Examples include:

  • History Selfie: Put yourself into some of baseball’s most iconic moments and share with your friends, family and followers via social media

  • Hall of Fame Plaques in HD: Scroll through an interactive experience of the Hall of Fame plaques for every inductee

Hall of Fame Tour

  • Video Exhibit Cases: In a first-of-its-kind for baseball artifacts, utilize video screens to get the story behind a specific artifact before the artifact itself is revealed behind the screen.

  • Personal Plaques: Using touch screen technology and high resolution cameras, take your own photo to create a personal Hall of Fame replica plaque and craft your own Hall of Fame story

Take your photo and insert your own bio Mad Libs-style…create a plaque and email it to yourself to share online.

  • Interactive Games: An interactive touch screen table will allow you to play fun games against your family, friends and other We Are Baseball visitors

Hall of Fame Tour

  • Mobile: Leveraging MLBAM’s mobile development and technology expertise, the Tour also will integrate iBeacon technology for location awareness into the experiences for fans with the free MLB.com Ballpark app.

JAUNT VR

The Tour partnered with pioneering virtual reality (VR) company Jaunt to give fans up close and personal experiences of being present next to the game’s brightest stars, on field, in the dugout and even in the clubhouse. Shot over a series of weeks and available only as part of the Tour, Jaunt captured footage at Spring Training camps for the Chicago Cubs, Los Angeles Angels, Los Angeles Dodgers, and Oakland A’s. They were also on field for the Boston Red Sox Fenway Park and Chicago Cubs Wrigley Field home openers and documented the ring ceremony for the 2015 World Series Champion Kansas City Royals.

Hall of Fame Tour

The VR experience was very cool. If you haven’t tried VR anywhere, you definitely need to check this out. You’ll get up close and personal with players on the field.

FANATICS

In partnership with the inaugural Hall of Fame Tour, Fanatics, the global leader in licensed sports apparel and official MLB digital commerce partner, will operate a pop-up retail store and provide a wide range of officially licensed gear and customized products for each city stop. Local fans will have the ability to shop a wide selection of Hall of Fame Tour merchandise and Baseball Hall of Fame throwback designs, while also sifting through city-by-city Cooperstown memorabilia and collectibles. Fans unable to visit in person will be able to showcase their passion and pride by shopping all Hall of Fame Tour merchandise online.
