Brewers Team Up With KaBoom for Playground Build

Today, more than 250 volunteers from the Milwaukee Brewers (including players, coaches, Brewers Wives and front office staff), Brewers Community Foundation, Inc., Our Next Generation, organizers from KaBOOM!, and residents of the Milwaukee community joined forces to give area kids the childhood they deserve by building a new playground at Our Next Generation. The design is based on children’s drawings created at a special design event in April.

Brewers Community Foundation was the lead sponsor of this events as part of its Beyond the Diamond initiative, a series of community outreach events that take place during the season. These events involve partnering with Brewers Community Foundation, players/coaches, Brewers Wives, alumni and team staff, working hands-on in the community. The community events will be funded in part by Brewers Community Foundation and focus on the areas of health, education, recreation and basic needs. Today, the focus was recreation. 

The Brewers will take on the Colorado Rockies tonight in the first game of a four-game set, but that didn’t stop members of the team including manager Ron Roenicke, Khris Davis, Yovani Gallardo, Will Smith and bullpen catcher Marcus Hanel from joining the rest of the group at the build site. Here are some photos I captured at today’s event:

A playground is more than a playground. It’s a brain-expander, friend-maker, and muscle-builder. Play is central to a child’s ability to grow into a productive adult. It can transform children from sedentary, bored and solitary to physically, mentally and socially active. Since 1996, KaBOOM! has been dedicated to the bold goal of ensuring that all children get the balance of active play they need to become healthy and successful adults because #playmatters.

In central Milwaukee, where roughly 3 out of 4 children live below the poverty line, kids often lack safe and carefree environments to explore, learn, and grow. The new playground will bring more than 850 kids in Milwaukee one step closer to having the childhood they deserve.

The playground is the second build by the Brewers Community Foundation, Inc. and KaBOOM!. Through this partnership, more children will have the joyful childhood they deserve. The Brewers Community Foundation, Inc. supports KaBOOM! in promoting and protecting a child’s right to active play at home, at school and in the community.

About KaBOOM!

KaBOOM! is the national non-profit dedicated to giving kids the childhood they deserve by bringing play to those who need it most. Children today spend less time playing outdoors than any previous generation, a fact that is having disastrous consequences on their health, achievement levels, and overall well-being. Social entrepreneur Darell Hammond founded non-profit KaBOOM! in 1996 in Washington, D.C. with a vision of creating a great place to play within walking distance of every child in America because children need to play actively every day at home, in school and in their communities. Since then, KaBOOM! has mapped over 90,000 places to play, built more than 2,300 playgrounds, and successfully advocated for play policies in hundreds of cities across the country. KaBOOM! also provides communities with online tools to self-organize and take action to support play on both a local and national level.  For more information, visit www.kaboom.org.

John’s Last Post

It is with mixed emotions that I am informing you all that today is my last day with the Brewers. Mike Vassallo made it official in the game notes today and you might have seen or heard about it on today’s broadcasts, but I also wanted to post something to the blog.

It has been an amazing run over the last nine-plus seasons with the team and I will say that working on this blog with Cait has been one of my favorite parts of the job. We built the blog from scratch and today our readers have made it one of the most popular blogs on MLB.com.

I have enjoyed every step of the way and will cherish the many people and experiences that have made my time here so wonderful. The places that I have been fortunate enough to visit and the people I have been able to call friends will never be forgotten.

Since I love stats, I couldn’t help but to dig up some stats on my tenure here (I started in February of 2005 and the stats are entering today’s game)…

-          Overall team record: 786-756 .510 (1542 total games including Postseason)

-          Rickie Weeks has played the most games since I started in 2005 with 1,077 games played including Postseason

-          Overall 203 players have played at least one regular season game for the Brewers since I have worked here

-          Ryan Braun leads the team in hits during my tenure with 1,237 and Yovani Gallardo leads the team with 86 wins

-          The Brewers have played 13,735 1/3 innings since the start of the 2005 season

About a month ago, my wife, Kate, received a job promotion that required a move to Phoenix. That put me on the job hunt! I dusted off my résumé and started the search. I was fortunate enough to accept a job with the Phoenix Mercury of the WNBA as Basketball Communications Manager. I’m very excited for a new adventure for me and my family.

I have grown up here in the organization, starting fresh out of Marquette University. I will take with me what have learned every step of my professional journey. Milwaukee will always be home and the Brewers will always be my team. I look forward to seeing you all in Arizona during Spring Training each year. I will definitely be following the team through October! I will continue to tweet from @jstein1981 if you want to keep in touch.

As for the blog, it is in great hands with Cait. She is very creative, smart and driven to keep this going. I will miss the “Double Clutch” tastings and the special events I have covered. I will miss the interaction I had with the readers and fans.

Thank you for your support of the blog. Brewers for life!
