BREWERS ON DECK TO INCLUDE OVER 50 PLAYERS, COACHES, BROADCASTERS & ALUMNI

Nearly 50 Milwaukee Brewers players plus a host of alumni, coaches, front office executives and broadcasters are scheduled to participate in Brewers On Deck, which is set to take place on Sunday, January 25 from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. at the Wisconsin Center.

Advance tickets are $15 for adults and $9 for children 14 and under.  Tickets on the day of the event are $20 for adults and $15 for children 14 and under.  A portion of the proceeds from Brewers On Deck will benefit Brewers Community Foundation.

This year the event will feature a community book drive that will help support Next Door’s Books for Kids program. The goal of the Books for Kids campaign is to help all children in Milwaukee’s central city, regardless of their family income or education levels, have books they can call their own. Local author Marla McKenna will help host the event. Fans are encouraged to bring new or gently used children’s books to donate. In appreciation for their contribution, fans who donate a book will receive a free copy of McKenna’s newest publication, “Mom’s Big Catch,” a story based upon events that took place at Miller Park.

Each fan in attendance will receive one Premier Entry sheet which may be redeemed at the Random Selection area outside the Main Exhibit Hall of the Wisconsin Center District.  The Premier Entry sheet will be exchanged for a numbered coupon to be entered into the random selection process for any one of the select Brewers players.  Coupon distribution will be available at 8 a.m. the day of the event and will continue up to an hour before each designated autograph session.   There is no cost for coupons to enter the random selection process; however, those holding winning coupons must pay $10 at the respective autograph stage to collect their player signature.  There will be 250 winners for each of the autograph sessions.  The winning ticket numbers will be posted at the designated autograph stage no less than 30 minutes prior to each player’s session.

Players and staff not included in the PREMIER autograph list will not use the random selection process. Each of these players will sign 250 autographs at prices ranging from free to $10. A schedule of players, their session times, and distribution info will be posted next week.  The autograph opportunities are for signatures on photo cards provided by the team; the Brewers cannot guarantee that any player will sign other memorabilia.  For additional information, visit Brewers.com/ondeck.

Autograph proceeds benefit Brewers Community Foundation.  Please note that cash is the only acceptable form of payment for autographs. The Brewers cannot guarantee that any player will sign other memorabilia, and personalization of items is solely up to the discretion of each player.

A detailed schedule of all Brewers On Deck events will be released next week.

Today we announced the Brewers postseason award winners as voted by members of the Milwaukee Chapter of the Baseball Writers Association of America (BBWAA).

A total of seven ballots were cast for each award, assigning five points for first place, three for second and one for third.

Catcher Jonathan Lucroy earned Brewers Most Valuable Player Jwith all seven first-place votes (35 points). Lucroy was followed by center fielder Carlos Gomez, who received all of the second-place votes (21 points). Also receiving consideration was pitcher Francisco Rodriguez (3 points), pitcher Wily Peralta (2 points), right fielder Ryan Braun (1 point) and third baseman Aramis Ramirez (1 point).

With his franchise-record-tying 53 doubles, he became the first primary catcher to lead his league in that category. His 46 doubles as a catcher set a Major League record.

Jonathan Lucroy (28 points) also earned the Good Guy Award for the second straight season. He received five first-place votes. The other first-place votes went to pitcher Kyle Lohse (13 points). A total of seven players received votes.

Peralta’s

“High Heat” Burger from AJ Bombers

During each homestand, I’ll sample some of the latest and greatest Miller Park fare and review it here, for you.

One of the most fun, new additions to Miller Park this season has been AJ Bombers. The popular restaurant and bar-with locations in Milwaukee and Madison-now occupies the outside space formerly known as the Plaza Pavilion, along the west side of Miller Park near the right-field gate.

AJ Bombers offers a selection of cheeseburgers, egg rolls, tater tots, shakes, custards, specialty concrete mixers and more. The menu also include homestand specials, such as the city-themed concrete mixers and the newest addition: Wily Peralta’s “High Heat” Burger.

Wily Peralta’s “High Heat” Burger-$9

HIGH HEAT

Making its debut  tonight is Wily Peralta’s “High Heat” Burger.

For just $9, fans will get this AJ Bombers burger patty topped with chipotle ranch, swiss cheese, jalapenos and tomatoes, plus a side of tots. The sandwich is the fourth of several city and/or player-themed burgers that AJ Bombers plans to offer this season.

Wily Peralta Burger

This burger is exclusive to Miller Park (i.e. not served at AJ Bombers’ restaurants) and available for a limited time.

AJ Bombers also offers different custard flavors pertaining to the visiting team/city. For the Blue Jays series, they’ve got Maple Doughnut Hole!

I’ll be sure to check in with AJ Bombers often throughout the season to keep you informed on their newest menu items, just like I have been with the ever-popular Double Clutch!

Brewers Extend Player Development Contract with Rookie Helena Brewers

The Milwaukee Brewers have announced a four-year player development contract extension with the Rookie Helena Brewers of the Pioneer League through the 2018 season.

“Our affiliation with the Helena Brewers has been very positive and we’re excited to extend our player development contract with the franchise,” said Brewers Vice President – Assistant General Manager Gord Ash. “Many players on our big league roster started their professional careers at Helena, where they developed and honed their skills to play at the Major League level.”

Ryan Braun, Khris Davis, Mike Fiers, Jonathan Lucroy, Jimmy Nelson and Tyler Thornburg each began their professional baseball careers with the Helena Brewers. Wily Peralta played the majority of the 2008 season at Helena.

“The Brewers have been flexible and appreciative of the efforts that we make, and I believe that the long relationship over the years has made this the best partnership it has ever been,” said Helena Brewers President/General Manager Paul Fetz. “We know each other, we know what to expect and we work well together. There is a mutual respect. When I went to Spring Training a few years ago I really felt a part of the organization. I wasn’t just some executive from the outside.”

Last season, Helena advanced to the Pioneer League championship and finished a win away from claiming the league title, dropping a best-of-three series to Idaho Falls. Helena won the Pioneer League title in 2010, the franchise’s first championship since 1996 (won back-to-back championships as a Brewers affiliate from 1995-96).

The Helena Brewers are located in Helena, Montana and have been a Brewers rookie affiliate since the 2003 season. Helena was also a Milwaukee farm team from 1985 through 2000.

Behind the Scenes at the Brewers Pet Calendar Photo Shoot

Last week, we let the “cat out of the bag” that we’re creating a Brewers Pet Calendar, featuring photos of the players and coaches with their pets and/or animals from the Wisconsin Humane Society, with a portion of the proceeds benefiting the organization.

Today, we held the first photo shoot for the piece, which is due out later this season, and we thought we’d share a few fun photos with you. All photos for the calendar will be taken by Brewers photographer Scott Paulus[Note: All of the dogs at today’s photo shoot are dogs that are currently up for adoption at the Wisconsin Humane Society.]

We also held a contest for one lucky fan and his/her dog to be included in the calendar alongside Hank. Stay tuned for more details on the winner and when the finished piece will be for sale.

Cheers!
