Bernie Brewer to Host Live Facebook Chat on Monday

This just in!

Our good friend, Bernie Brewer, will be hosting a live Facebook chat via the Milwaukee Brewers Facebook Page and the MLB Fan Cave Page this coming Monday, September 12, at Noon CT.

Over the past couple of seasons, our technologically savvy mascot has embraced social media, primarily via his Twitter account, @Bernie_Brewer. Currently, Bernie leads all MLB mascots in followers via the network and earlier this year, he even hosted a scavenger hunt for fans by tweeting clues from it as well.

We connected with Bernie this morning and via email he wrote:

“I can’t talk, but I can type! Social media has finally given me the outlet to express my love for this team, previously only accomplished by sliding.”

The self-described “biggest Brewers fan on the planet,” Bernie entertains fans young and old during all home games from his Dugout located in the left field bleachers and as, he referenced in his e-mail, he is most famous for going down his slide after home runs and Brewers victories into his Kalahari Splash Zone.

During those home games, Bernie will often tweet about his slides and game updates, as well as conduct a “#Brewers Fan #RollCall” where he says “Section/Row/Seat RT!” and then tries to make visits to select fans at their seats.

During Tuesday home games, Bernie also hosts #BrewersTuesdayTrivia where he gives away tickets to the first fans who answer his questions correctly.

When the team is on the road, Bernie never misses a game.

“Thanks to my friends in the Brewers MIS Department and the good folks at Time Warner Cable, I can watch all of the road games on FS Wisconsin, listen to Uke and Cory on WTMJ, follow along online via MLB.TV or the MLB AT BAT app, and connect with fans everywhere–all from my Dugout.  I live here year-round and it gets lonely when the team is on the road and of course, during the offseason, so it is nice to connect with fans via social media. It makes me feel like every day and every night I’ve got a sold-out crowd to interact with,” he wrote.

During those road games, Bernie often asks fans where their “#TweetSeats” are–that is, where the fans are watching the game and Tweeting from.

His followers have also been known to receive special ticket offers to upcoming games throughout the season.

“I’ve been extremely active on Twitter and of course I follow the team on Facebook, but I’ve never had the chance to interact with fans through the network before. I’m excited and honored that the MLB Fan Cave is affording me this opportunity.”

The MLB Fan Cave is a first-of-its-kind immersive fan experience in New York City’s Greenwich Village. The Fan Cave hosts the winners of the MLB Dream Job, who were chosen from a pool of nearly 10,000 applicants,  Mike O’Hara and his Wingman, Ryan Wagner.

Mike and Ryan have been inhabiting the Fan Cave every day for the entire 2011 MLB season where they are watching all 2,430 regular season games plus every Postseason game while chronicling their experiences and sharing their viewpoints on baseball and pop culture through Facebook, Twitter, MLBFanCave.com, and regular appearances on MLB Network.

The Fan Cave features interactive fan activities; hosts regular visits from MLB players, baseball personalities and celebrities; and hosts parties and musical performances, as well as other events throughout the baseball season.

Earlier this season, two other members of the Brewers who are very active on Twitter also interacted with the MLB Fan Cave.

Nyjer Morgan, aka “Tony Plush” (@TheRealTPlush) visited the Fan Cave for an interview John Axford (@JohnAxford) has hosted multiple  “Moustache Fact Mondays” from the Fan Cave as well.
