Last minute runners can register at packet distribution at Miller Park from 12:00 – 6:00 p.m. on Wednesday, November 25, and on race morning from 7:00 – 8:15 a.m.. Food and monetary donations will also be accepted at this time. Donors will have the opportunity to win prizes provided by Sendik’s Food Market.

Runners and walkers are invited to Miller Park on Thanksgiving for a tradition filled with fun for the whole family. Participants are encouraged to dress up in their best Thanksgiving Day costume, and each registered runner will receive an official long-sleeved Drumstick Dash T-shirt.  The Drumstick Dash mascot, “Dash” the turkey, will be in attendance and the top five finishers who out-run “Dash” will win prizes from Performance Running Outfitters.

In the last four years, the Drumstick Dash 5K has donated over 100,000 meals for families in eastern Wisconsin over the holiday season.

“We are proud to be partnered with Sendik’s Food Market, the Milwaukee Brewers, Fox6, FM102.1, Performance Running Outfitters and our benefiting partner, Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin again for the 4th annual Drumstick Dash, who we have helped raise over 100,000 meals in the previous three years for those facing hunger in Eastern Wisconsin communities,” stated Jeff Graves, president of Vision Event Management. Graves added, “It is really inspiring to see the local community coming together to help their neighbors in need, especially as the holiday season is upon us.”

Registration is open online now.  Registration price is $30 for adults and $20 for kids ages 5 to 12.  Adult price increases on November 6.  Children ages 4 and under are free but must still register.  Registration prices increase to $40 for adults and $25 for kids at packet distribution at Miller Park on Wednesday, November 25.

Kenny Chesney to Return to Miller Park on Saturday, June 18

This morning, we announced that Miller Park has been named as a stop on Kenny Chesney’s “Spread the Love” 2016 Tour, which will rock Miller Park on Saturday, June 18. This is the second time that the country music star will headline at the home of the Brewers, as he entertained fans at the stadium during his “No Shoes Nation” tour in 2013. Chesney also visited Miller Park in 2010 as part of Farm Aid’s “25th Anniversary Tour.”

Chesney's "Spread the Love" Tour features a return to Miller Park next June.

Chesney’s “Spread the Love” Tour features a return to Miller Park next June.

The concert will feature other top country stars including Miranda Lambert, Old Dominion and a third artist to be announced later (the third artist will perform between Lambert and Old Dominion).

Kenny Chesney at Miller Park

The Knoxville, Tennessee-born country star has recorded numerous studio albums, including 11 that have been certified platinum. He has produced countless chart-topping singles such as “Anything But Mine,” “How Forever Feels,” “Live A Little,” “When The Sun Goes Down,” “Somewhere With You,” and “Never Wanted Nothing More.” Chesney was honored by the industry when he received the Country Music Association’s Entertainer of the Year Award four times (2004, 2006, 2007 and 2008) and is once again up for the prestigious award which will be announced during the Country Music Association Awards on November 4.  Last year, Chesney released his 16th studio album, The Big Revival. The album, which debuted at #1 on Billboard Country Airplay chart, includes smash hits “American Kids,” “Till It’s Gone” and “Wild Child.”

“Kenny Chesney is one of the industry’s most popular artists, and we’re excited that he will be returning to Miller Park again after his sold-out show here in 2013,” said Milwaukee Brewers Chief Operating Officer Rick Schlesinger. “With a number of major concerts in recent years, Miller Park is now a destination for music’s top touring artists, and fans love seeing shows in this world-class venue. We know this will be an exciting evening with a legendary entertainer and one of the most anticipated concerts of the summer.”

“People always want to know about the stadiums because it’s a big show… a lot of music… and the kind of day people come together and celebrate friendship,” said Chesney. “We know a lot of people travel to these dates from all over, so to give them as much time as possible to get ready, I figured it’d be nice to get these out in front of our other shows!”

Lambert, the five-time reigning CMA Female Vocalist of the Year, is one of five nominees for Entertainer of the Year – along with Chesney – at this year’s Country Music Association Awards.  Earlier this year, Lambert was named Top Female Vocalist of the Year by the Academy of Country Music Awards for the sixth consecutive year (2010-15).  The country music star and singer/songwriter earned Best Female Country Vocal Performance honors for her single “The House That Built Me” at the 53rd Annual GRAMMY Awards and won Best Country Album for Platinum at the 57th Annual GRAMMY Awards this year.

Old Dominion is a five-member band which consists of Matthew Ramsey (lead singer), Trevor Rosen (acoustic guitar, keyboards), Whit Sellers (drums), Geoff Sprung (bass guitar) and Brad Tursi (lead guitar).  Their debut single, “Break Up With Him,” reached the Top 10 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart.

Miller Park has played host to multiple concerts, including George Strait’s Country Music Festival (2001), N’Sync (2001), Bruce Springsteen (2003), Randy Travis (2004), Bon Jovi (2005), Kid Rock/Sugarland (2008), Farm Aid’s 25th Anniversary Concert (2010), Paul McCartney (2013), Kenny Chesney (2013) and One Direction (2015).  It has also hosted numerous other non-baseball events, including international soccer matches in 2014 and 2015.

Tickets will go on sale Friday, December 4 at 9 a.m. at brewers.com, by phone at 414-902-4000 and at the Miller Park Box Office. Ticket prices will be announced at a later date.

RBI Athlete of the Month: Tyrese Mitchell

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 Tyrese “Bubba” Mitchell.

Tyrese is a junior at Riverside University High School. As a catcher on the RBI Select League and Travel Team, Bubba is not just a great player, he’s also a good student. He maintains over a 3.0 GPA. He is a very dedicated player and a team leader who helps when anything is needed on or off the field. Bubba continues to grow as a young man and as a baseball player. Keep up the good work Bubba!

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 $40,000 last season, so keep tweeting to help us support our local program again in 2015! View the current standings at mlb.com/whiff.

The “Chili Cheese Davis Burger” from AJ Bombers

During each homestand, I’ll sample some of the latest and greatest Miller Park fare and review it here, for you.

One of my favorite spots at Miller Park continues to be AJ Bombers. The popular restaurant and bar-with locations in Milwaukee and Madison- occupies the outside space formerly known as the Plaza Pavilion, along the west side of Miller Park near the right-field gate.

AJ Bombers offers a selection of cheeseburgers, egg rolls, tater tots, shakes, custards, specialty concrete mixers and more. The menu also include homestand specials, such as the city-themed concrete mixers as well as monthly player burger features.

THE CHILI CHEESE DAVIS BURGER-$9

The AJ Bombers Player Burger of the Month is the Chili Cheese Davis Burger.

The AJ Bombers Player Burger of the Month is the Chili Cheese Davis Burger.

Back by popular demand for September is the “Chili Cheese Davis Burger,” a special burger named after Brewers outfielder Khris Davis.

“The Chili Cheese Davis” includes a single patty cheeseburger topped with housemade chili, jalapeños and avocado. It is available exclusively at Miller Park for the rest of the season, so you’ll want to be sure to try it out, or get it one more time.

After one bite Khris declared his burger, "Awesome."

I’ll be sure to check in with AJ Bombers often throughout the season to keep you informed on their newest menu items.

Don’t forget that you can always access our featured menu items via MLB.com’s Ballpark app to check out what’s new and exciting.

Where To Satisfy Your Craving: Fans can find AJ Bombers on the Field Level, in the outside space formerly known as the Plaza Pavilion, along the west side of Miller Park near the right-field gate.

Law Enforcement Night at Miller Park

Tonight is Law Enforcement Night at Miller Park as we recognize the sacrifice of officers who have fallen in the line of duty and celebrate the commitment of all past and present law enforcement personnel to keeping us safe. Before the game, honored three officers,  colors were presented by several law enforcement agencies throughout the state, and the national anthem was sung by Menomonee Falls Chief of Police Anna Ruzinski.

Law Enforcement Night

Those honored in pregame ceremonies were:

  • New London police officer Brody Erickson who went undercover to determine the extent of drug and bullying problems at New London High school. He attended classes, did his homework, and interacted with students. Officer Erickson’s work led to the conviction of two drug dealers and made students at New London High School safer.
  • Lake Delton police officer Lucas Killick who responded to a 911 Call that a man had collapsed. Upon arrival, Officer Killick determined that the man was not breathing, took immediate life-saving measures, and the man survived. Officer Killick is also very involved in numerous community projects, including the Cops for Kids program.
  • Cudahy police officer Joe Paczocha, who recently retired after serving the citizens of Cudahy for more than 30 years. During his prominent career, Officer Paczocha began a police explorer’s program for young people, a D.A.R.E. Program for Cudahy schools, and received numerous citations for outstanding service.

Anna Ruzinski

Trenton Casper, cousin of Wisconsin State Trooper Trevor Casper also threw out a ceremonial first pitch in Trevor’s honor. State Trooper Casper died in the line of duty this year and his parents, Deborah and Kevin, along with his sisters, Lauren and Olivia, are here tonight.

We sold a special ticket package for tonight’s game where $5 donation from each ticket sold goes to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund in Washington, D.C. to honor fallen Law Enforcement Officials and the first 1,000 to purchase the special Law Enforcement Night ticket package received a free Challenge Coin, courtesy of Brewers Community Foundation and law enforcement ambassadors Glen Jones and Nate Catura.
