All fans in attendance for the May 1, 1:10 p.m. game against the Miami Marlins will receive a Ryan BraunFranchise HR Leader Bobblehead. Braun, who became the Brewers all-time franchise home run leader in 2015, was selected as the Brewers Most Valuable Player last season.

On July 10, the Brewers will introduce a new promotion for the 1:10 p.m. game against the St. Louis Cardinals. All fans in attendance will receive a Hall of Fame broadcaster Bob Uecker Talking Alarm Clock, encouraging fans to “Get up…Get up…Get outta bed!”

All fans in attendance will receive a Craig Counsell Bobblehead, with half of the dolls depicting Counsell in his current role as Brewers manager, and half depicting him in his playing days with the Brewers. The giveaway recognizes Counsell’s 18th season of combined playing and managing experience.
New this season, the Brewers have announced the addition of three All-Kid giveaways to the 2016 schedule, withkids ages 14 and under eligible for the giveaways.

For the third year in a row, “Free-Shirt Fridays” will return to Miller Park for 2016. On Friday home games during the months of June, July and August (June 10, June 24, July 8, July 22, July 29, August 12 and August 26), all fans will receive a Brewers T-shirt.

The Milwaukee Brewers today announced that the Selig Experience, a state-of-the-art attraction at Miller Park to honor retired Commissioner Emeritus and former Brewers Owner Allan H. (Bud) Selig, will open to the public on Friday, May 29 when the Brewers face the Diamondbacks.
The Selig Experience is located on Miller Park’s Loge Level in the left field corner. A highlight of the attraction is a multimedia presentation that tells the story of Selig’s role in successfully bringing the Brewers to Milwaukee, saving Major League Baseball in the city with his commitment to build Miller Park, and his tireless efforts to promote and grow the game in his hometown.
The Selig Experience will be open to the general public during all Brewers home games, from the time that gates open until the 7th inning, and admission is free for those with tickets to the game. Admission will be on a first-come, first-served basis. The attraction will also be open to selected tour groups.
A schedule of opening activities includes:
Wednesday, May 27, 6 pm: Media Preview Event – Credentialed media will be given an opportunity to tour the Selig Experience. More details will be announced later. Please note – there will be an embargo on news coverage related to the attraction until 7 pm on Thursday, May 28.
Thursday, May 28, 5 pm – A private gala will be held on the Miller Park playing field, with Commissioner Emeritus Selig, Brewers Owner Mark Attanasio and their guests on hand for a program, dinner and tours of the attraction.
Friday, May 29, 5:30 pm – The attraction will open to ticketed fans on a first-come, first served basis.
Miller Park already is known as a premiere destination for baseball fans, and the Selig Experience takes that to the next level. It will serve as a year-round attraction, adding another extraordinary enhancement to the overall fan experience.
The exhibition space totals approximately 1,500 square feet, and will include authentic artifacts from Selig’s tenure as the Brewers owner. It celebrates the fans’ love of the game, as told through the story of the Brewers founder.
The main multimedia show builds to a surprising encounter with the Commissioner himself inside an authentic reproduction of Selig’s County Stadium office, using a technology found in only a handful of exhibits around the world. After the show, Milwaukee fans will be delighted to take a sneak peek into Selig’s office for themselves.
The design and production of the Selig Experience is being led by BRC Imagination Arts, an experience design agency that Turns Brands into Destinations™. For more than three decades, its masterful storytellers have been chosen by iconic brands and cultural attractions all over the world to inspire and engage their audiences.
Selig’s dedication to baseball has paralleled his love of his hometown of Milwaukee. His first significant move as an executive was to return Major League Baseball to Milwaukee in 1970, when he founded the Milwaukee Brewers. In its first decade, the Brewers featured some of the great teams of that era, which eventually led to an American League pennant and World Series appearance in 1982.
During his tenure as Brewers owner, Selig earned United Press International’s 1978 Executive of the Year award, and the franchise was honored with seven “Organization of the Year” awards.
In the 1990s, Selig began his efforts to build a new ballpark in Milwaukee to replace the aging County Stadium, and Miller Park opened for its first season of play in 2001.
Uihlein-Wilson Architects is also contributing to the initial design of the space for the Selig Experience.
Proceeds to Benefit Make-A-Wish Foundation
The Milwaukee Brewers have announced that the team will auction off Opening Day tickets for the 103 “Uecker Seats” located at Miller Park. The Dutch style auction will be held exclusively online beginning today, Monday, March 23 at 12:00 p.m. until Tuesday, March 31 at 11:59 p.m., with all proceeds benefiting the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
The “Uecker Seats” are 103 obstructed view seats that are located in Sections 421, 422 and 423. The seats were named after Brewers’ legendary announcer Bob Uecker and the famous Miller Lite “All Stars” campaign. The ad campaign featured Uecker’s famous tagline, “I must be in the front row,” despite the fact that Uecker somehow always ended up in the last row. The seats are located near the Last Row Statue of the announcer, which was unveiled last year, in the last row of Terrace Level Section 422.
The Dutch auction will be held exclusively online and there is no limit of the number of seats fans will be able to bid on. There are a total of 103 seats that will be auctioned off, with 42 pairs available and 19 single seats. Each participant can log on to brewers.com/UeckerSeats starting today, Monday, March 23 at 12:00 p.m. From there, fans can chose the pair and/or single seat options, and make their desired bids. Once the auction closes on Tuesday, March 31, the top bidders for each category will be selected. The final price for each seat will be the lowest bid among the top bidders selected.
Auction participants will be contacted by the Brewers Ticket Office if they have the winning bid. All proceeds from the auction will benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
The Milwaukee Brewers have announced the return of a unique ticket promotion known as the “Brewers Chance 2 Advance Ticket Plan,” which allows fans the chance to upgrade their seats to the next highest ticket category every time the Brewers win.
Only a limited number of plans will be available, and they go on sale tomorrow, Wednesday, March 4. Tickets for this promotion sold out in 2013 and 2014 – the first two years of the promotion – so fans will want to act quickly. Last season, the Brewers won five games during the promotion and fans that purchased this ticket plan advanced to the Loge Infield Box.
Here’s how it works: For just $99, you get tickets to nine select Tuesday games at Miller Park, plus the chance to advance all the way to the Field Diamond Box. You start with seats in Bernie’s Terrace for all nine games, but with each Brewers win, you upgrade your seating area. On Tuesday, May 12, you’ll sit in Bernie’s Terrace for the first game of the plan against the Chicago White Sox. If the Crew wins, you’ll advance to the next seating tier for the following game in the plan.
Every time the Brewers win, you simply exchange your Bernie’s Terrace ticket for a ticket in the next best seating area for only $2. You remain in that seat location until the Brewers win the next game in the plan. If the Brewers don’t win, simply exchange your Bernie’s Terrace ticket at no cost for a seat in the same section where you last advanced – no backsliding.
