Wrapping up the rest of the homestand, we’ve got a 3:05pm start vs. the Cardinals on Saturday, May 4 and then Sunday, May 5 is Corey Hart Bobblehead Day, presented by Kwik Trip. You’ll want to get your tickets early to score that, too!

Hart Bobblehead-SiloIn case you’re wondering about his uniform, this collectible features Hart in a 1913 Brewers uniform, honoring the 100th Anniversary of that team’s first American Association Championship. We’ll be paying tribute to the 1913 Minor League Milwaukee Brewers of the American Association on that day as well. Both the Brewers and Cardinals will wear throwback uniforms from the 1913 season. The American Association Brewers, who played from 1902-52, won their first league championship in 1913.  Overall, they won eight pennants during their 51 seasons of existence.

Hope to see you out here next week!

Sunday, May 5: Corey Hart Bobblehead Day presented by Kwik Trip

The third bobblehead of the 2013 season will come on Sunday, May 5 as the Brewers take on the St. Louis Cardinals. The bobblehead will feature Brewers first baseman Corey Hart in a 1913 Brewers uniform and is presented by Kwik Trip.

Wait a minute, you say, the Brewers, formerly the Seattle Pilots, didn’t come to Milwaukee until 1970….

Yes, that’s correct, but there was a Minor League team called the Milwaukee Brewers who played in the American Association for 50 years, from 1902-1952, the team that became the eventual namesake for our beloved Crew!

The Brewers won their first American Association championship in 1913 and repeated the next year.  All told the American Association Brewers won eight pennants in their fifty-one seasons.

Thus, we’ll honor the 100th anniversary American Association Brewers on May 5 with this Corey Hart bobblehead.

This is the second Brewers bobblehead for Corey Hart; the Nashville Sounds also honored Corey with a bobblehead this past season.

Individual tickets will go on sale in February, but if you want to secure your tickets early, Corey’s bobblehead is included in the following ticket packages:

20-Game Sunday Plus Plan 

Holiday 4-Pack Weekend Plus Plan [Holiday 4-Packs go on sale on Tuesday, November 13!  Call (414) 902-HITS (4487) for details!]

We #BREWLIEVE!

For Brewers fans, it’s been quite the September to remember. Over the last 29 games, the Crew is 23-6 and, so far this month the Crew has gone 14-4, including three-game sweeps against the Atlanta Braves and the Pittsburgh Pirates.

The Crew is now 4-0-1 over their last 5 road series and has gone 12-5 over the last 17 road games.

During that time, according to the website coolstandings.com, the Brewers chances of making the 2012 Postseason have risen dramatically from .6% on September 1 to 17.5% as of today.

Currently, just one team—the St. Louis Cardinals—is ahead of the Brewers in the race for the second NL Wild Card spot. They lead by only 2.5 games as of the time of this post.

And, of course, there is still plenty of work to be done. The Brewers face a tough four-game set against the Washington Nationals and then a three-game series against the Cincinnati Reds, both teams that clinched playoff berths yesterday.

However, then we return home for our final six regular season games of the year, three against the Houston Astros (September 28-30) and three against the San Diego Padres (October 1-3).

And, as we know, thanks to you guys, the best fans in baseball, we’ve got a home field advantage at Miller Park that is second to none. The Brewers have always had one of the best home records in baseball. Last season the team set a franchise record with 57 wins at Miller Park. This season, the Brewers are 46-29 at home including winning 19 of their last 22 home games.  The Brewers tied a Miller Park record with nine straight wins from August 20 – September 12.

Brewers fans have remained positive this season and maintained that “never say die” attitude. Despite any apparent adversity, we all continue to believe in our team.

In fact, there’s a term for Brewers fans believing in the Crew. It’s something we’ve noticed that has been catching on across various social channels already and we’re jumping on board because, yes, like you, we #BREWLIEVE.

So, as of now, the Brewers are hanging in there, winning games and doing their part. You can do yours by coming out and showing your support for the team during the final homestand of the season and spreading the #BREWLIEVE message to your friends.

Tweet using the hashtag to tell them why you #BREWLIEVE in the Crew. Share the graphic on Facebook and/or download your I #Brewlieve Facebook Timeline image here.

While no one knows how things will pan out, one thing’s for sure: MLB’s addition of two more Wild Card teams and a single elimination game in each league has certainly added to the excitement of the playoff push.

On Wednesday morning, Commissioner Selig told MLB.com’s Mark Newman, “It’s been amazing. It’s fascinating to watch the different things that have happened. We’ve got great division races, we’ve got a little of everything. You really judge how well we’ve done by the number of teams Labor Day and then post-Labor Day that are still in the hunt. Even I didn’t think we could do this well.”

Keep the faith, Brewers fans! #BREWLIEVE!

Note: With the second Wild Card format for 2012, the three division winners in each league will await the survivor of a one-game playoff between the Wild Card teams in each league. Both games are slated for Friday, October 5, two days after the end of the regular season. Barring weather disruptions, the Division Series field of four teams in each league will begin the following Saturday and Sunday.

We’re Celebrating Mr.Baseball with Our Favorite Ueckerisms & More All Month Long

Back in March, we announced that the legendary “Mr. Baseball,” Bob Uecker, will be honored on Friday, August 31 with a statue placed outside of Miller Park near the Home Plate Plaza.

Well, it is now August and we’re extending our celebration of Mr. Baseball all month long with photos, our favorite “Ueckerisms” and more across our various social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest.

 

We also want to hear from you! On Twitter, post any photos you may have, or share your favorite memories of Uecker, or listening to Uecker, in 140 characters or less using the hashtag: #Uecker. 

Not on Twitter? Share your stories by posting in the comment fields below our various Uecker pictures on Facebook, or email your personal photos to: JohnandCait@brewers.com (Subject line: UECKER).

We’ll compile some of the best fan submissions and share them here on the blog.

An iconic figure for the franchise, Uecker has provided the soundtrack of summer to generations of fans listening to Milwaukee Brewers games on the Brewers Radio Network. His irreverent style and knowledge of the game are unrivaled and his talents have also been known to audiences worldwide for years through his work on television and film projects.

This year marks the 50th Anniversary of Uecker’s first Major League game and, while Uecker’s roots will always be in baseball (including six seasons as a player and 42 years as a Brewers broadcaster), his career includes an incredible base of performing and entertaining all featuring one common thread – he always leaves the audience laughing.

Uecker blasted onto the national scene as an entertainer in 1969. A visit with Al Hirt led to Johnny Carson booking Uecker for an appearance on the “Tonight Show.” The chemistry between Uecker and Carson was immediate, and it led to approximately 100 encore appearances. Uecker soon became one of the most sought-after guests on the Talk Show circuit as appearances followed on the “Mike Douglas” and “Merv Griffin” shows, “Late Night with David Letterman” and even a hosting role on “Saturday Night Live.”

Highly respected in the industry, Uecker was inducted into the Radio Hall of Fame in 2001 and the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) Hall of Fame this past spring.

Uecker’s credits go far beyond guest appearances and play-by-play. In 1985, he launched a television acting career as one of the stars of ABC’s sitcom “Mr. Belvedere,” which put 122 episodes into syndication. He also hosted two syndicated television shows, “Bob Uecker’s Wacky World of Sports” and “Bob Uecker’s War of the Stars.”

One of Uecker’s most memorable roles came as the anchor of arguably the most successful advertising campaign in the history of television – The “Miller Lite All-Stars.” For years, Uecker served as the captain of the crew that acted in spots promoting Lite Beer from Miller.

As a film actor, Uecker starred in what is widely regarded as one of the best baseball movies of all time, serving as a radio announcer in the film “Major League.” He followed that up with a reprised role in the equally popular “Major League II.”

Uecker’s national sports broadcasting experience included serving as color commentator for ABC Sports coverage of Monday Night Baseball, League Championship Series and World Series, and NBC’s Major League Baseball Game of the Week.

A former catcher who spent six seasons in the Major Leagues, Bob authored a book entitled “Catcher In the Wry,” a humorous look back on the years he spent with the Milwaukee/Atlanta Braves, St. Louis Cardinals and Philadelphia Phillies. One of his career highlights as a player came in 1964 when he was a member of the World Champion St. Louis Cardinals.

Despite his national attention and success, Uecker has always worked toward helping others. His charitable efforts benefit many organizations, including the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Uecker will be the fourth person to be honored with a Miller Park statue. Hank Aaron and Robin Yount were the first to be recognized with statues that were unveiled on April 5, 2001, the first year of Miller Park’s existence. The first two statues were donated by the Allan H. (Bud) Selig Foundation. On August 24, 2010, Major League Baseball Commissioner and former Brewers Owner Allan H. (Bud) Selig became the third honoree when his statue was unveiled in an afternoon program.

The statue will be cast in bronze, measure over seven feet in height not including the base, and is being designed and produced by Brian Maughan, who (along with Douglas Kwart) also created the Aaron, Selig and Yount statues.

Specific details related to the statue unveiling & ceremony on August 31 will be announced later this month.

Please join as we celebrate all month long!
