Bob Uecker Statue to be Dedicated Friday in the “Last Row”

Today we announced details for Friday’s unveiling of the new Bob Uecker statue at Miller Park.  Unlike the statues that surround Miller Park’s Home Plate Plaza, this statue will be in the last row—yes, the last row of the Terrace Level at Miller Park.

The statue will pay tribute to the popular Miller Lite “All Stars” ad campaign which featured Uecker’s famous tagline, “I must be in the front row.”  In those commercials, Uecker somehow always ended up in the last row—as will this statue.  The statue will sit atop the Uecker Seats in Miller Park’s Terrace Level (Section 422).  It will feature an open seat next to it allowing for a perfect photo opportunity.

Starting with the Brewers vs. Cubs series at Miller Park this weekend, be sure to stop up, take your photo and tweet it and/or Instagram it using #IMustBeInTheFrontRow and we’ll collect & share our favorites across our social media sites.

The statue will be unveiled for the first time in a ceremony open to special guests and media Friday afternoon (the unveiling ceremony is not open to the public).  Prior to that night’s 7:10 p.m. game against the Chicago Cubs at Miller Park, a presentation will be made on the field honoring Uecker and showcasing the statue.

The statue was designed by Brian Maughan, the artist of the four statues outside Miller Park on the Home Plate Plaza—Hank Aaron, Allan H. “Bud” Selig, Robin Yount and Uecker.  The statue will be made of bronze, but will also have color effects.

“MOMENT OF TRUTH #2”:The First Domino to Fall in the Swing Sequence

In my last post I discussed the importance of starting in the optimum stance to generate bat accuracy and power at the point of contact. I labeled that MOMENT OF TRUTH #1. Today’s topic is a bit more controversial. I say “controversial” not because hitting experts don’t recognize that it happens; but rather because some may not give it the same emphasis as we do at the Brewers Baseball Academy. This single move can set up the hitter’s lower half for success or it can betray the entire swing…and it doesn’t come naturally for hitters so we need to teach it. That’s why I think it’s critical.

So, exactly what is MOMENT OF TRUTH #2? So many times I’ve heard baseball people debate regarding the first thing that moves when we launch the bat. Invariably, there is a group that believes that the hitter “just throws his hands” at the ball. Yes, the hitter does do that…but it is by no means the FIRST thing. In fact, it’s the last thing the hitter does prior to contact.

So what’s first? Drum roll please…The inside of the back knee pinches forward and down toward the inside ankle of the front foot. It’s the Knee Pinch that keeps the hitter from spinning on his back foot. It’s the Knee Pinch that launches the back hip, which is the power center. It is the Knee Pinch that prevents the hitter from rising up on his back leg. Yes, it’s the Knee Pinch that launches the hitter’s momentum into the baseball. Important? You betcha.

Take a look at former Brewers sluggers Robin Yount, Ben Oglivie  and Geoff Jenkins. Check out the knee pinch.

Yount Oglivie Jenkins

This next shot is a great overhead of Ryan Braun. If Ryan hadn’t pinched his knee in the way I described, he will spin on his back foot (we used to call this “squishing the bug”) and the back heel will retreat toward the catcher. Clearly, that’s not what’s happening here. Why? Because this is the way it supposed to be done!

Braun Overhead

The Knee Pinch is difficult to teach in the context of this blog. But go ahead and use your DVR the next time Gomez, Braun or Lucroy launches a moon shot. Focus on the back knee and I think you will see exactly what I mean and exactly why I respectfully submit the Knee Pinch as MOMENT OF TRUTH #2.

In my next post I’ll focus on MOMENT OF TRUTH #3…”Bend Your Wrists and Wave Bye-Bye to a Good Swing.” Until then, if you’re gonna swing might as well swing hard.

Former Media/Staff Lot to Be Renamed in Honor of Johnny Logan

To day we announced that we will rename the media/staff parking lot at Miller Park in honor of former Milwaukee Braves All-Star shortstop Johnny Logan.  Logan was inducted into the Brewers Walk of Fame last season.

The “Logan Lot” joins 12 other parking lots around Miller Park that were renamed prior to the 2010 season in honor of some of the city’s baseball legends.  The lots are adorned with the names of former Milwaukee Brewers and Braves players, with banners and other artwork notating the baseball greats. Uniformed members of the Brewers and Braves Walk of Fame are represented, with the first 12 parking lots named after Henry Aaron, Cecil Cooper, Rollie Fingers, Jim Gantner, Harvey Kuenn, Eddie Mathews, Paul Molitor, Don Money, Warren Spahn, Gorman Thomas, Bob Uecker and Robin Yount.

Logan played in Milwaukee from 1953 – 1961 and appeared in four All-Star Games as a member of the Braves.  For his 13-year career, Logan hit .268 with 93 home runs and 547 RBI.  He was a member of the Braves World Series Championship team in 1957 and the National League Championship team in 1958.  Logan was signed by the Boston Braves in 1947 and made his Major League debut with Boston in 1951.  After playing in Milwaukee, he played three seasons with the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Logan, a former area scout with the Brewers, passed away on August 9, 2013.

Good Luck to Brewers Fan & Olympian Erika Brown on the #RoadtoSochi!

The first time Erika Brown made the U.S. Olympic Curling team, guys like Paul Molitor, Robin Yount, and Juan Nieves graced the Brewers roster.  

It was 1988 and the then 15-year-old was headed to Calgary for the XV Olympic Winter Games where curling would debut as a demonstration sport.

It’s now 2013 and Erika, a lifelong Brewers fan and Wisconsin native, is on the road to Sochi, hoping for the chance to compete in her third Olympics in a sport that’s always been a family affair.

Originally from Madison, Wisconsin, Erika began curling in 1980 at the age of 7, taking after her mom, dad and brother, who all played the sport.

“In 1988, I remember being there with my family. My parents were there. My dad was our coach and my mom was our alternate on our team. The ceremonies were overwhelming,” she reminisced.

Erika made her second trip to the Olympics 10 years later, in Nagano in 1998.

“I think in 1998, we all were more experienced. We had different expectations. We had competed at that time for 10 years on a world stage. Nagano was great. Curling had gained more recognition and popularity by that time. There was great fan support and fun crowds. It was amazing!”

Erika’s team won the Women’s Curling Championship in Green Bay earlier this year, which qualified them for the Olympic Team Trials. And it felt extra special that it happened in her home state in front of family and friends.

“There were lots of Wisconsin curling fans there and it was fun to be in such a fun sporting town, too. We were right near Lambeau Field.”

The Olympian also adds accomplished golfer to her resume—she was the Wisconsin State High School champ in 1990 and 1991 and twice the City of Madison women’s champion as well.

“I don’t get a chance to play as much as I want to anymore, but golf is a great compliment to curling. There are a lot of similarities—repetitive motion, timing, strategy,” Erika said.

Although Erika has since moved to Ontario with her husband (a three-time World Champion curler himself) and children, she’s still a Brewers fan at heart and follows the team from afar.

“Growing up, we were always Brewers fans.  We were members of the Brewers Fan Club, the year they won the pennant, in 1982. I remember my dad would get home at 5pm and we would get in our van. We’d stop to get pizza and eat it on the drive to Milwaukee for the games. We went to 17 games that season, we were all into it.”

In addition to curling and golf, Erika was well versed in many other sports growing up, including little league.

“I played infield, so I tried to emulate Robin Yount,” she said with a laugh.

Gorman Thomas was her favorite player and Erika even has photos of herself with Stormin’ Gorman and many of the members of that ’82 team from a Kids Picture Day that season:

And, although she didn’t make it to any playoff games, she says she also has a photo from the night the Brewers won the pennant.

“It’s one of my favorite photos. My brother and I have all of our gear on the night they won the pennant and we’re in our living room, celebrating,” she said.

So, while Erika continues to cheer on the Brewers, we’ll continue to cheer on her and the other Olympic hopefuls on the road to Sochi.

Erika’s next stop is North Dakota for the Olympic Team Trials, Sunday, November 10 through Sunday, November 17.

“With Curling, it’s such a combination of skills. Fitness has become a really integral part of the game. As a skip [Editor’s Note: The skip is the captain of the team, responsible for determining strategy], what I love is how strategic and cerebral it is and the experience is a huge factor. Having played for so long, that’s helpful and that’s why I like the position I play and the strategy that goes into the game. The other great thing is my teammates. We all work together and lift each other up. For me it’s created friendships and lifelong bonds.”

We already know Brewers fans are everywhere—and we hope there’s one more in Sochi next February.

Sunday, September 14: Robin Yount Bobblehead Day

This week, we’re unveiling the #Brewers14in14… 14 All-Fan Giveaways during the 2014 season!

The eighth bobblehead of the 2014 season will come on Sunday, September 14, as the Brewers take on the Cincinnati Reds. The bobble will feature Brewers alumnus Robin Yount!

MB-14 All Fan Reveal-Bobble-Yount

We have had several Brewers bobbleheads featuring Robin Yount in the past (2001, 2006, 2007 [mini] and 2010 [1990s-themed for 40th Anniversary]).

However, this bobble will feature Robin in a 1974 Brewers uniform, his rookie year.  Yount was just 18 years old when he broke into the big leagues on April 5, 1974, with the Brewers. Yount had played only 64 games in the minors before becoming the Brewers’ starting shortstop in 1974 at age 18. At the time, he was the youngest player in the majors. This bobble will be given away just two days before Robin’s birthday (he’ll turn 59 on September 16, 2014).

Robin Yount, 1978

And, when you follow us on Twitter (@Brewers and @Bernie_Brewer) and Facebook, you’ll have the chance to win tickets to this game — before you can buy ‘em! 

If you don’t win, don’t worry.  Individual tickets will go on sale in spring. However, if you’d like to secure your tickets for this game early, the Yount bobblehead is included in the following ticket packages which are on sale now:

Be sure to check back in the coming months as we also unveil the image of the actual bobblehead when we get it!

Stay tuned to the blog, our social channels and brewers.com/allfans all week as we unveil more of the #Brewers14in14!

Carlos Gomez Named Milwaukee Brewers Nominee for 2013 Hank Aaron Award

Major League Baseball and MLB Advanced Media announced that Carlos Gomez was named the Milwaukee Brewers nominee for the 2013 Hank Aaron Award.

Fans can vote exclusively online at MLB.com and the 30 Club sites. For the fourth straight year, a special panel of Hall of Fame players led by Hank Aaron will join fans in voting for the award, which is officially sanctioned by Major League Baseball and has recognized the most outstanding offensive performer in each League since it was established in 1999.

Gomez batted .284 with 27 doubles, 10 triples, 24 home runs, 73 RBI and 40 stolen bases (all career highs) in 147 games. The speedy center fielder was selected to his first All-Star Game and ranked among the National League leaders in triples (T2nd), stolen bases (4th), slugging percentage (7th, .506) and extra-base hits (T8th, 61). Gomez, who was the only player in the Major Leagues this season with 20+ HR and 35+ SB, became the first player in franchise history with 20+ HR and 40+ SB in a season.  He led the Brewers in doubles, home runs, extra-base hits, total bases (271) and slugging percentage and tied for the team-lead in runs (80) and triples.  In addition, his 12 assists ranked second among Major League center fielders in 2013.

The Hall of Fame panel led by Aaron includes some of the greatest offensive players of all-time –Roberto Alomar, Johnny Bench, Tony Gwynn, Paul Molitor, Eddie Murray and Robin Yount.  These Hall of Famers – who combined for 17,629 hits, 8,278 RBI and 1,723 home runs – have all been personally selected by Hank Aaron to lend their expertise to select the best offensive performer in each League.

Through October 10, fans will have the opportunity to select one American League and one National League winner from a list comprising of one finalist per Club. The winners of the 2013 Hank Aaron Award will be announced during the 2013 World Series.

“It is a great honor that Major League Baseball recognizes the most outstanding offensive performer in each League with an award in my name,” said Hank Aaron. “The game is full of so many talented players today that I am thankful my fellow Hall of Famers and the fans assist in selecting the much deserving winners.”

The finalists for the 2013 Hank Aaron Award are:

Tonight’s Robin Yount Ceremony at Miller Park a Special Treat for Brewers Fans

Robin Yount is perhaps the most iconic player in Brewers history.  Any Brewers fan can tell you how much he meant to the teams he played on and to Milwaukee. Tonight, Yount was honored in a very special pre-game ceremony at Miller Park that celebrated the 20th anniversary of his retirement as a player. Also participating in the ceremony were fellow Hall of Famers Hank Aaron and Rollie Fingers, Brewers Chairman and Principal Owner Mark Attanasio and Brewers President of Baseball Operations Doug Melvin.

“Hard to believe it has been that long,” Yount said today.  “That saying ‘The older you get, the faster time goes by,’ I can attest to that.”

Yount’s 20-year Major League career was spent entirely in Milwaukee and he retired after the conclusion of the 1993 season.  His number 19 was retired in a ceremony on May 29, 1994 at Milwaukee County Stadium.

He finished his career with 3,142 career hits and was the first player to enter the National Baseball Hall of Fame as a Brewer after being inducted on July 25, 1999.  Yount broke into the big leagues at age 18.  He won the American League Most Valuable Player awards in 1982 (shortstop) and 1989 (outfield), becoming the third player in Major League history to win that award at two different positions.

By looking at Yount today, he looks he could probably put on a uniform tonight and go 2-for-3 at the plate.

“I stay active,” Yount said.  “I certainly don’t have any workout regimen, but I don’t sit still long.  My parents passed off good genes.”

The ceremony itself was definitely memorable. Seeing three Hall of Famers together like that on the Miller Park field was a rare opportunity and something the fans in attendance tonight will not forget.

The celebration included a presentation of an original painting commissioned to remember the occasion.  The first 30,000 fans through the gates for the tonight’s game received a poster of the painting that presented to Yount during the ceremony.  Doug Melvin presented a $10,000 check from the Brewers Community Foundation on behalf of the Yount to the MACC Fund (Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Cancer).

“Robin’s contributions to the Brewers are far too numerous to list, and we’re looking forward to welcoming him back for this special occasion,” said Brewers Chief Operating Officer Rick Schlesinger. “His time in Milwaukee was marked by great personal and team success, and it’s an era that will forever be remembered as a magical time for baseball in Wisconsin.”

Yount met with the media before the game at Miller Park and with all the news surrounding the recent suspension of Ryan Braun, the issue of violations of the MLB drug prevention and treatment program was a hot topic and one that Yount didn’t shy away from.

“I don’t have a comment on anyone individually, because you need to know all the facts and in Ryan’s case, I don’t have all the facts,” Yount said.  “Obviously this is a bump in the road for baseball, but I hope that maybe this will put an end to all of this once and for all.  Hopefully the guys that are testing the system will realize that maybe they can’t beat it.”

Yount continued to say what this all means for the game itself.

“It’s important to baseball that we get rid of this.  It is not something we want to focus as an industry.  We want to focus on the game itself.  This will pass.  There are no players bigger than the game.  It is not our brightest moment, but hopefully this will make the guys aware that they are not going to beat the system.”

For the 2006 season, and part of the 2008 season, Yount served on the Brewers coaching staff. He also spent some time with the coaching staff of the Arizona Diamondbacks.  Although he has been out of coaching for over five years now, he sounded pretty secure in the fact that he enjoys his life as a retired player today.

“I loved every second of the coaching that I did,” Yount said.  “I really enjoyed working with the guys.  My biggest issue was that it takes so much time and such a commitment and I have a lot of other things that don’t have to do with baseball that I enjoy and that I would have to give up.  I’m just not willing to give up these hobbies and free time, but that is not to say I didn’t enjoy the coaching that I did because I really did enjoy it.”

So what does Yount do with all that free time?  Plenty.  In addition to his hobbies of racing and dirt bikes, he has “Robinade”–his “old-school lemonade” that supports the MACC Fund–and, his latest venture, part ownership in the Lakeshore Chinooks baseball team of the summer Northwoods League.

“It’s (the Chinooks) been great, I was out there last weekend and we are playing really well in a playoff run,” Yount said.  “Everyone is excited.  In doing this we are promoting baseball.  It’s not just about the college kids that are playing the game, but we also have college kids running the show too behind the scenes.  They are getting a taste of what it is like to be involved with a sports franchise.  Hopefully someday it won’t be a player that makes it, but it is a guy selling merchandise now that will one day work in marketing with the Brewers.  I just think the opportunity that is provided out there is a good way to promote the game.”

Like many of my friends who I grew up with in Milwaukee, Robin Yount was our hero.  He was a great baseball player, a great person and he represented Milwaukee.  Tonight’s ceremony was a perfect reminder of how lucky every Brewers fan is to call Robin Yount a Brewer.

Uecker Statue Unveiled at Miller Park

All month long we’ve been celebrating our very own Mr. Baseball with photos, our favorite “Ueckerisms” and more all leading up to his statue dedication today.

In front of a crowd that included too many notables from the worlds of baseball and entertainment to list, his family, friends, colleagues and fans, Bob Uecker‘s statue was finally unveiled, ‘juuust a bit outside’ Miller Park.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Music was provided by Doc Severinsen and his Big Band. Bob Costas was the emcee. Speakers included Mark Attanasio, Dick Ebersol, Commissioner Selig and Hank Aaron. Robin Yount sent in a taped message from Italy where he was attending a family wedding. The Mr. Belvedere cast was reunited. Hank’s wife, Billye, serenaded Bob with a beautiful rendition of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow.”

And the laughs kept on coming. Oh, the laughs.

“My dad says that every time you make someone laugh, you add 15 minutes to his life,” Brewers Chairman and Principal Owner Mark Attanasio said, calculating that if that’s true, then Bob has personally extended his life by at least one year so far–or over 34,000 laughs.

Well, everyone in attendance and watching on FSWisconsin also extended their lives today as each person who spoke during the hour and a half long ceremony (including Bob himself, of course) had their own funny stories to share.

In his speech, Commissioner Selig called Bob “the best ambassador for this franchise” who “embodies goodwill, not only for the Brewers but for the sport of baseball” and today we were reminded once again just how fortunate we are to have him here in Wisconsin with us, providing the soundtrack of summer for Brewers fans everywhere.

Cheers to Bob Uecker, everyone!
