Here are just a few of the comments we came across via Twitter:

We were so blown away that we had to get it up online to share:

Liamani is of no relation to the Brewers shortstop. To learn more about the little girl with the big voice, you can check out her website at LiamaniSegura.com.

UPDATED 4/13/15: 2015 Brewers Walk-Up & Entrance Music

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!

Selig Experience at Miller Park to Open to Public on Friday, May 29

Today we announced that the Selig Experience, a state-of-the-art attraction at Miller Park to honor retired Commissioner Emeritus and former Brewers Owner Allan H. (Bud) Selig, will open to the public on Friday, May 29 when the Brewers face the Diamondbacks.

The Selig Experience is located on Miller Park’s Loge Level in the left field corner. A highlight of the attraction is a multimedia presentation that tells the story of Selig’s role in successfully bringing the Brewers to Milwaukee, saving Major League Baseball in the city with his commitment to build Miller Park, and his tireless efforts to promote and grow the game in his hometown.

Selig Experience_2

The Selig Experience will be open to the general public during all Brewers home games, from the time that gates open until the 7th inning, and admission is free for those with tickets to the game. Admission will be on a first-come, first-served basis. The attraction will also be open to selected tour groups.

Miller Park already is known as a premiere destination for baseball fans, and the Selig Experience takes that to the next level. It will serve as a year-round attraction, adding another extraordinary enhancement to the overall fan experience.

The exhibition space totals approximately 1,500 square feet, and will include authentic artifacts from Selig’s tenure as the Brewers owner. It celebrates the fans’ love of the game, as told through the story of the Brewers founder.

The main multimedia show builds to a surprising encounter with the Commissioner himself inside an authentic reproduction of Selig’s County Stadium office, using a technology found in only a handful of exhibits around the world. After the show, Milwaukee fans will be delighted to take a sneak peek into Selig’s office for themselves.

The design and production of the Selig Experience is being led by BRC Imagination Arts, an experience design agency that Turns Brands into Destinations™. For more than three decades, its masterful storytellers have been chosen by iconic brands and cultural attractions all over the world to inspire and engage their audiences.

Selig’s dedication to baseball has paralleled his love of his hometown of Milwaukee. His first significant move as an executive was to return Major League Baseball to Milwaukee in 1970, when he founded the Milwaukee Brewers. In its first decade, the Brewers featured some of the great teams of that era, which eventually led to an American League pennant and World Series appearance in 1982.

During his tenure as Brewers owner, Selig earned United Press International’s 1978 Executive of the Year award, and the franchise was honored with seven “Organization of the Year” awards.

In the 1990s, Selig began his efforts to build a new ballpark in Milwaukee to replace the aging County Stadium, and Miller Park opened for its first season of play in 2001.

Uihlein-Wilson Architects is also contributing to the initial design of the space for the Selig Experience.

Celebrate “National Something on a Stick Day” by Dreaming of Miller Park’s Nachos on a Stick

Today is National “Something on a Stick Day” (gee, there really is a day for everything, isn’t there?) and in honor of that, we’re paying homage to one of the newest treats you’ll find at Miller Park this season: Nachos on a Stick.

Hey "Inside the Park Nachos"... We'll #SeeUApril6.

Hey “Inside the Park Nachos”… We’ll #SeeUApril6.

Called “Inside the Park Nachos,” these tasty treats feature taco meat and refried beans breaded in Doritos then deep fried and drizzled with sour cream and cheese sauce. And, thanks to our concessionaire Delaware North‘s ingenuity, they leave you with a free hand to hold a beverage or reach out and catch a foul ball!

We’ll have more on the new food items at Miller Park next week, including the 18-inch Down Wisconsin Avenue Brat, as well as the “Bratchos,” a version of which has already been a hit down in Spring Training.

Just 9 days until we see these items–and you–at Miller Park.

“The annual game at Miller Park is a great showcase of the prospects with the Timber Rattlers and always a day our fans and players look forward to,” said Timber Rattlers President Rob Zerjav, “As an organization, we appreciate this opportunity the Brewers provide and we thank the Beloit Snappers for their willingness to relocate one of their home games to Miller Park.”

The game will once again be a home game for Beloit, with Wisconsin as the visiting team.

“The Beloit Snappers are pleased to return to Milwaukee to play our in-state rival, Wisconsin Timber Rattlers, once again,” said Dennis Conerton, President of the Beloit Snappers. “Last year was an exciting experience for our fans and our players. It is a great opportunity to showcase our Major League players of tomorrow in a beautiful big league stadium like Miller Park.”

This will mark the fourth time that these two teams will face off at Miller Park. It is the eighth time in team history that the Timber Rattlers will play a game at Miller Park and the fourth for the Snappers.  Last season, the Timber Rattlers fell to the Snappers 4-2 and Beloit is 3-0 all-time against Wisconsin at Miller Park.  The Timber Rattlers own a 3-4 lifetime record at the current home of the Brewers.

Games in year’s past have featured future Brewers players such as Prince Fielder, Tony Gwynn, Manny Parra, and Rickie Weeks. Other current Brewers who have played in Minor League games at Miller Park include Khris Davis, Scooter Gennett, Jim Henderson and Wily Peralta.

Sun’s Out, Grass is Out at Miller Park

Back in Milwaukee, unseasonably warm weather has everyone–including the grass–thinking spring.

This morning, the Michael Boettcher, Director of Grounds, and the Grounds Crew staff started pulling covers from the field at Miller Park:
