DIY Network has joined forces with MLB Network for the ”Pin Your Turf, We’ll Crash Your City” Pinterest Contest and Milwaukee could end up on the popular show Yard Crashers!
Milwaukee, along with eight other Major League cities, is featured on DIY Network’s Pinterest Board, where fans can pin postcards from the select cities starting now through Wednesday, May 8 for a chance to have licensed contractor Matt Blashaw and the Yard Crashers team ambush the winning baseball town. Shooting this summer and premiering in 2014, a special episode of Yard Crashers will feature the winning city’s ambush and surprise one lucky fan with a home run outdoor makeover.
Brewers fans can help increase our hometown score with each competitive re-pin of this image (you can click right on it and be taken to Pinterest):
So far, the Astros are in the lead, but since we know Brewers fans vote and share in droves when posed with a challenge, hopefully that will change very soon!
“People always ask me to come and crash their space,” said Matt Blashaw, host and licensed contractor of DIY Network’s Yard Crashers. “Now is your chance. Just show your club some Pinterest love and I may show up in your town, your yard, and give you a winning space!”
Along with the Brewers, the other Clubs we’re pitted against are: Pittsburgh Pirates, Colorado Rockies, San Francisco Giants, Oakland Athletics, Seattle Mariners, San Diego Padres, Houston Astros and the Minnesota Twins.
Starting in 2009, DIY Network and MLB Network partnered together for special episodes of DIY Network’s popular series, including Yard War: Baseball in 2010, House Crashers in 2011, Desperate Landscapes and Man Caves in 2012, and currently Mega Dens in 2013.
Official rules are available on DIYNetwork.com. Catch all new episodes of Yard Crashers on Monday nights at 9 p.m. CT on DIY Network.

My boss, Kathy Schwab, Senior Director of Marketing, and I are taking a whirlwind tour of New York City this week—we’re here for two different award ceremonies (I’ll post about that tomorrow, after the second event), fitting in meetings with colleagues, and finding time to promote our Brewers Holiday 4-Packs along the way.
With two prestigious events bookending our trip, we decided to make the most of it and headed to Secaucus, NJ on Wednesday to visit Mary Beck, Senior VP-Marketing & Promotion and her team at MLB Network. Neither Kathy nor I had ever made it to these offices and we were so excited to take a tour of the studios. It was neat to see them filming some of the segments for their shows and to learn what goes on behind the scenes. We also had a little fun, as you can see here.
Speaking of MLB Network, make sure you tune in tonight at 5p.m.when the winner of the 2012 National League MVP is to announced. We’re hoping Ryan Braun will be selected for the second year in a row!
More to come from New York-stay tuned!
