The Countdown to Brewers Opening Day is On!

Happy New Year, Brewers fans!

The new year brings with it a new season and, a new countdown to Opening Day, Monday, March 31 when your Brewers take on the Atlanta Braves at 1:10pm at Miller Park.

As you know, Opening Day is practically a holiday in Milwaukee and looking forward to it helps us all get through the long, cold Wisconsin winter.

As of today (Friday, January 3), we’re just 87 days away from kicking off the 2014 season at Miller Park.

Last year, we had fun coming up with countdown images across our various social media platforms:

We also asked you to show us how you were counting down for a chance to win Opening Day tickets…. And we loved your creativity so much that this year, we’re hoping to rely on you to show us how you’re counting down each day. One Grand Prize winner will be selected to be in the crowd on March 31, plus receive a pair of Brewers 10-Packs!

Here’s how it works:

Join us in our #SeeUMarch31 countdown by creating original photo(s) showing how you count down to the Brewers Home Opener each day leading up to it. For example, Tuesday, January 7 is 83 days until Opening Day. Fans submitting their photos showing their “83” by 5pm CT the day prior (Monday, January 6) will be eligible to have theirs selected as the one we post across all of our social media channels on Tuesday, January 7.  Simply tag your entries on Instagram and/or Twitter using hashtag #SeeUMarch31.

Each day, we’ll select our favorite and post it across Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, Google Plus and Tumblr, giving you credit, of course!

Just before Opening Day, each of the daily winners will be eligible to win the Grand Prize—a pair of Brewers 10-Packs plus Opening Day tickets!

I can’t wait to see what you all come up with!

MLB Network’s “Face of MLB” Competition Returns; Vote for #FaceofBREWERS Today

Major League Baseball’s most popular players will square off once again as fans decide which player from all 30 MLB clubs best represents the league in MLB Network’s second “Face of MLB” competition. Starting yesterday, MLB Network has set out to find the Face of MLB by creating a bracket-style tournament with results determined by fans on Twitter. Results will be announced each weekday morning on MLB Network’s offseason morning show Hot Stove at 8:00 a.m. CT.

In the “Face of the Franchise” preliminary round, fans can nominate a player candidate from each of the 30 MLB clubs by voting on Twitter with the player’s name and #FaceofCLUBNAME (so cast your vote for your favorite Brewer by using #FaceofBREWERS). MLB Network has created a bracket that seeds clubs against each other based on how they finished the 2013 season and beginning January 21, Hot Stove will ask fans to vote on Twitter each day and decide a winner for the day’s head-to-head player matchup until the Face of MLB is determined.

Fans voted more than 1.6 million times in the first Face of MLB competition, revealing emerging MLB stars including Jason Heyward, Jason Kipnis and Andrew McCutchen up against veterans like Derek Jeter, Paul Konerko and Dustin Pedroia. Nearly 700,000 votes were cast for the final round in which Cincinnati Reds MVP first baseman Joey Votto was named the Face of MLB after edging out Los Angeles Dodgers All-Star outfielder Matt Kemp.

The Face of MLB bracket and voting details are available here.

Brewers vs. Twins “Follow Off” Updates

In case you’ve missed it, this week, we’re taking our rivalry with the Twins to social media, where we’ve been engaging in some fun Twitter Tug-of-Wars and, most recently a “Follow Off”.

What’s a Follow Off, you ask?

Starting in pregame yesterday, we, along with the Twins, submitted the number of followers we have on the @Brewers and @Twins Twitter accounts. From that time through the end of tonight’s game, we’re holding a running tally.

The team that gains the most followers in this span of time will reward their fans by giving away a prize.

If the Twins win, they’ll give away a Joe Mauer autographed bat to one lucky follower and if we win, we’ll give away an Aramis Ramirez game-worn jersey from Opening Day to one of our followers.

Currently, we’re trailing just slightly behind the Twins, but I’m confident that Brewers fans will rise to this challenge.

So, for the rest of the day through tonight’s game, make sure you follow the Brewers on Twitter if you aren’t already and encourage your fans to do the same. Also, don’t forget to tune in to tonight’s broadcast and follow @FSWisconsin for updates on the competition.
