As we celebrate Mother’s Day at Miller Park, it’s hard not to look out at the sea of pink without recalling a special memorable moment in Brewers lore–Mother’s Day 2006.
The Brewers utility player Bill Hall was one of many Major Leaguers who used pink bats on Mother’s Day that year, the first year of MLB’s “Going to Bat Against Breast Cancer” program.
But Hall gained nationwide attention when he hit a 10th-inning walk-off home run with the bat to beat the Mets 6-5 on Sunday, May 14, 2006.
And to make the story all that more compelling, his mom, Vergie, was in the stands that day at Miller Park.
Several weeks after his dramatic homer, Brewers principal owner Mark Attanasio spent more than $25,000 to buy the pink bat at auction on MLB.com, and presented it as a gift to Vergie Hall. The money went to the Komen Foundation.
The highlight inspired a “Bill Hall Pink Bat Ticket Package” in support of the foundation as well as an alternate version of an all-fan bobblehead giveaway the following season.
Happy Mother’s Day to all of the moms out there!
Before I tell you everything that is going on to commemorate this special holiday at the park today, I want to wish my own mom, who is celebrating at the game today, a very Happy Mother’s Day. I love you mom, I wouldn’t be where I am today without your love and support!
A few of the players have special Mother’s Day wishes, too:
And, today at Miller Park, we’re celebrating with plenty of pink, as part of the “Going to Bat Against Breast Cancer” program, which was started by Commissioner Selig and Major League Baseball in 2006.
Some of the players will use pink bats made by Louisville Slugger, the Official Bat of Major League Baseball, stamped with the MLB breast cancer awareness logo. Game-used Louisville Slugger pink bats from Mother’s Day games that have been authenticated by MLB will be auctioned exclusively on MLB.com to benefit the fight against breast cancer.
Today, we’re also using a pink-stitched Rawlings baseballs. the pink ribbon is appearing on the bases at each ballpark, the official dugout lineup cards are pink and the players are wearing pink wristbands, plus a variety of other pink accessories.
Pink ribbon decals for breast cancer awareness are being worn by all on-field personnel.
The “Going to Bat Against Breast Cancer” program was expanded with the Honorary Bat Girl program in 2009.
The Honorary Bat Girl program celebrates those who have been affected by breast cancer and who have gone above and beyond to demonstrate a commitment to fight this disease.
A Guest Judging Panel that included MLB players Evan Longoria, Freddie Freeman and Pablo Sandoval with MLB Network’s Sam Ryan and country music superstar Jason Aldean, who are all committed to the cause, helped to select an Honorary Bat Girl for each of the 30 MLB Clubs.
Today we hosted a special Mother’s Day program including recognition of our 2014 Honorary Bat Girl Winner, Lisa Zelazoski, who was here with her husband Nate and daughters Abby, Erin and Ava (not pictured).

Happy Mother’s Day–Go BREWERS!
If you’re still looking for that perfect Mother’s Day gift, you’re in luck!
Back by popular demand, the Brewers “Brewed For Her” event went on sale this morning.
On Saturday, July 26, during the Brewers vs. Mets game, we’ll be hosting the second “Brewed For Her” event in the Gehl Club at Miller Park, an event geared toward women showcasing multiple products that are sold in the Brewers Team Stores, along with fashion tips, and interactive beauty stations highlighting new Brewers hair and nail accessories.
The event will begin two hours before gates open that day (2:30pm) so that attendees have time to shop the stores and visit vendor booths set up by the Brewers Team Store on the Club Level before the game begins. Various vendors, fashion experts, and beauticians will be on hand during the event to offer advice, give demonstrations and offer product information.
Attendees will also be able to purchase items in the Gehl Club that day (with some items at a 20% savings!) and those who purchase the new Brewers hair and nail accessories will also have the opportunity to have the beauticians style their hair and nails with them on the spot.
“We received such great feedback from last year’s event that we decided to bring it back for the 2014 season and make it even better. It’s a great opportunity to showcase the new Brewers gear and accessories and for fans to get ideas on how to show their team support not just at the game, but also out on the town,” said Jill Aronoff, Senior Director Merchandise Branding.
Brewed for Her is $98per ticket and includes:
- Early entry into Miller Park
- Your Brewers vs. Mets ticket in the upscale Gehl Club at Miller Park, which includes an all- you-can-eat buffet and two complementary beverages
- Access to vendor booths and product displays at the Brewers Team Store on the Club Level
- Demonstrations by beauticians
- Fashion tips from experts
- Ability to purchase merchandise that evening from the Gehl Club (some at a 20% savings!)
- A special Brewed for Her gift bag
I’m planning to attend this event again and look forward to talking with many of the attendees as well as grabbing photos to feature here on the blog–I hope to see you there!
Tickets are on sale now at brewers.com/brewedforher or by phone at (414) 902-GAME (4263). You’ll want to hurry as tickets for this event are limited!
As you know, this year, we’ve got our #Brewers14in14… 14 All-Fan Giveaways–8 bobbleheads and 6 t-shirts–during the 2014 season!
As we get images of the bobbles, we’ll unveil them here and across our social media channels.
So far, we’ve revealed the first bobblehead of the season, the Carlos Gomez Gold Glove bobblehead on Sunday, April 27 vs. the Chicago Cubs.
Now, we’ve got the second bobblehead here for you–the Kyle Lohse bobblehead, presented by Toyota, on Sunday, May 11 vs. the New York Yankees.
The bobblehead is posed in his windup and features Lohse’s signature goatee.
I caught up with Kyle to get his thoughts on the bobblehead. “It looks pretty cool,” he said… and then he informed me that he’s never had a bobblehead before. I was incredulous. This is a World Series Champion who was drafted in 1996, made his Major League debut in 2001, has played in six Major League organizations…and he’s never been immortalized in bobble form?!?
“I guess I finally made it,” he said with a smile.
Individual tickets are on sale now and the May 11 game is sure to be a hot ticket. Not only is it Kyle Lohse Bobblehead Day, but it is also Mother’s Day, plus we’re playing the Yankees and it’s Brewers fans last chance to see Derek Jeter play at Miller Park before he retires.
In short, you’ll want to visit brewers.com or call (414) 902-4000 to secure yours today!
