YOUNG FAN’S IDEA BECOMES A REALITY

A simple-but-creative idea from a 10 year-old fan became a reality today.

Earlier this year, Tyler Webb, a young Brewers supporter from Strum, Wis., submitted a suggestion that Miller Park should offer blue corn tortilla chips along with yellow cheese sauce to create Brewers-themed nachos. The Brewers front office and concessionaire Delaware North Sportservice loved the concept, and now “Tyler’s Nachos” has made its debut.

Tyler's Nachos

“We were having nachos one day, and we ran out of our yellow chips that we usually use. So we used blue corn chips, and I noticed that they were Brewer colors. Then, we emailed Delaware North, and they said they liked the idea,” Tyler said.

Tyler’s Nachos will be available for purchase at the Section 216 Cactus League Nachos stand on the Loge Level, and will be included in the stand’s menu of items through the end of the month. To literally top it off, fans may also opt for an “M” Brewers logo in sour cream on the item.

Tyler's Nachos

To celebrate the occasion, Tyler and his family were invited out to enjoy the game in a suite at Miller Park and received gifts as part of a rollout ceremony.

“I think it’s exciting. I think getting to go to the game and getting a suite to watch today’s game is the coolest part,” Tyler said.

Carter and Murphy Visit with Brewers Season Seat Holders

Today was the Brewers Season Seat Holder luncheon, the first of two such events this season where Season Seat Holders with packages of 20+ games have the opportunity to attend.

The event, which took place in the Skyy Lounge, included a plated lunch, a Q &A with Brewers players, and the opportunity to win prizes.

Today, Season Seat Holders were treated to a Q & A with Brewers first baseman Chris Carter and Bench Coach Pat Murphy, hosted by Brewers radio broadcaster Jeff Levering.

Coach Murphy and Sleepy answered fans questions at the Season Seat Holder luncheon.

Coach Murphy and Sleepy answered fans questions at the Season Seat Holder luncheon.

Murphy kicked things off by explaining how Chris Carter earned the nickname “Sleepy” or “The Big Sleep.”

“Before we get started I’m going to tell the Sleepy story. There’s not really a story. Here’s the deal. You guys watch most of the games, right? This guy’s pulse rate is about 19. So in Spring Training, we kind of started calling him Sleepy. ‘Hey Sleepy,’ ‘Big Sleep.’ So now my dream is–I see how you guys are unbelievable fans and I see the way you guys support Luc when he goes to the plate (Luuuuuuuuuuccc!)….Hitting right after Luuuuuuuucccc is Sleepy, so what we do is ‘Sleeeeeeeeep-y!’…we get the whole crowd doing it,….that would be great!” Murphy said.

Here, Murphy demonstrates the cheer that he hopes will take off among fans.

The conversation was then opened to up to questions which ranged from “What was going through your mind when you  hit those home runs against Oakland last night?” (“They shouldn’t have traded me!”) to talking about Murphy’s relationship to Craig Counsell as his former coach and how Murphy once broke Counsell’s nose.

Here are some more highlights:

Thanks to those who came out today, fun was had by all.

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.

This month’s featured burger is the Thornburger! Back by popular demand, this burger named for Brewers reliever Tyler Thornburg includes a 1/4 lb patty topped with pepperoni, sautéed onions, lettuce, Texas BBQ sauce, Ranch and pepper jack cheese.

MILWAUKEE BREWERS TO BE FIRST MLB TEAM TO HOST BASEBALL HALL OF FAME TOUR BEGINNING JULY 15

The historic Baseball Hall of Fame Tour (We Are Baseball)will come to Miller Park beginning 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 from July 15-31.

Baseball Commissioner Robert D. Manfred, Jr. today became the first Commissioner to visit the Field of Dreams movie site, along with 2015 Hall of Fame inductee and MLB Network analyst John Smoltz, where the Tour’s 2016 travels were unveiled during a live town hall announcement event only 90 miles from the first stop – Modern Woodmen Park in Davenport, Iowa.

Brewers Season Seatholders will receive an email offering them a pre-sale opportunity, which includes a 10% savings on regular ticket prices for the exhibit.

Through its official ticketing provider, Tickets.com, the Tour’s general public tickets across all six locations will be available beginning Tuesday, May 31 at 10 a.m. CT 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 Granatand Grand Slam Productions.

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

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.

Along with Milwaukee, We Are Baseball will travel to five other cities in its first four months of operation in 2016, providing fans in those communities nearly 1,000 open hours of access to the exhibits, artifacts and immersive experiences provided from the vast collections of The National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in Cooperstown, N.Y. A detailed schedule for 2016 is below:

Andy Grammer’s In The House for Tonight’s Postgame Concert

Thanks to the success of last season’s inaugural series, we’re pleased to bring back postgame concerts this season!

Tonight, we welcome one of the music industry’s hottest stars to Miller Park as multi-Platinum pop artist Andy Grammer will perform a full-length, free postgame concert, courtesy of Pick ‘n Save, following the Crew’s matchup with the San Diego Padres.

From hustling street performer to Platinum-selling recording artist, Grammer’s ascent to stardom has been nothing short of remarkable. The 32-year-old singer/songwriter has gone from relative unknown to industry icon performing alongside Taylor Swift, Train, and Colbie Caillat in just a few years’ time. With his 2011 self-titled debut album, Grammer became the first male pop star in a decade to reach the Top 10 at Adult Pop Radio on his first two singles, ‘Keep Your Head Up’ and ‘Fine By Me’, certified Platinum and Gold respectively. Grammer would reach even greater heights with the release of his second album, Magazines or Novels, which featured the Number 1 smash-hit, ‘Honey, I’m Good’. One of the best-selling songs of 2015, ‘Honey I’m Good’ achieved triple-Platinum status and soared into the Top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100. Grammer would continue his success with the release of his chart-topping song, ‘Good to be Alive (Hallelujah)’, the second single off his deluxe edition Magazines or Novels.

Grammer arrived early and had the chance to go on the field during batting practice:

He also threw out a ceremonial first pitch:

Grammer also took part in a few special meet and greets during tonight’s game before performing a full-length concert following tonight’s game against the Padres.

For those of your scoring at home, Grammer’s ‘Good to be Alive’ is also the Brewers “Win” song this year, so let’s hope we get to hear it twice tonight!

I’ll be sure to update this post with photos from the Meet & Greets, as well as the concert itself, so stay tuned.

5/15/16 Update: Due to the game going into extra innings, the concert didn’t start until after 11pm, but that didn’t stop Grammer from rocking out until after 12:30pm. Here are just a few photos from his show, taken by Brewers photographer Scott Paulus:

Thanks to Andy and to all of the fans who came out for the game and concert! See you back at Miller Park in just a few hours!

Skittles Helps Settle Clubhouse Candy “Controversy” Between Jeffress & Smith

Throughout the Brewers Clubhouse it is well known that Brewers pitcher Jeremy Jeffress loves Skittles. And when Jeffress’ mom came to visit last week, she confirmed that he’s always loved them, ever since he was a little kid.

In fact, many fans have started to catch on to this and some have even given him packages of his beloved candy.

However, recently the Five Fruity Flavors were at the heart of a clubhouse controversy between Jeffress and fellow pitcher/best friend Will Smith. Smith, who is currently on the disabled list and did not travel with the team on the first road trip of the season, was assisting me with some social media during a game by tweeting and Snapchatting live from the clubhouse. (You can check out the tweets on the #LeftyBehind hashtag.)

Right before he left for the night, this happened and we caught it all on video:

Of course, Jeffress saw the tweet…

…and later returned the favor by stealing some candy out of Smith’s locker:

Of course this candy “war” was all in good fun, but Skittles wanted to make sure that their tasty treats wouldn’t cause any conflict in the clubhouse moving forward. So, they sent a special package. Here, Jeffress explains what he received:

Here’s a copy of the letter:

Skittles Letter to the Brewers

Jeffress was understandably stoked to receive such an awesome care package, which even included his absolute favorite, Sour Skittles!

Jeffress Skittles

A big thank you to Skittles on behalf of Jeffress and Smith for the care package. We appreciate you looking out for the Crew!

Side Note: Skittles are so beloved by Jeffress that he told me that he’s even named his curveball after the candy, henceforth it shall be known as “Skittles” and Jeffress will make opposing batters “Taste the Rainbow.”
