 Limited Edition Brass Ticket can be Redeemed for one Future Brewers Home Game

image

For the Brewers fan who wants the ultimate gift, the Milwaukee Brewers today are offering a limited edition Timeless Ticket that guarantees a ticket to one future Brewers home game, including any Postseason game.

The Timeless Ticket will consist of a brass ticket personalized with an engraving of the owner’s name.
Only 1,000 of the items will be produced. Additional facts about the Timeless Ticket:

  • Each ticket is individually numbered, comes complete with a certificate of authenticity and is packaged in a specially-designed gift box.
  • Each ticket is authenticated by Major League Baseball and includes its own registered ID number under the MLB Authentication program.
  • The ticket weighs approximately one pound, is 6.25” by 3.5,” and sits in a wood display base.
  • The cost of the ticket (which includes the brass engraved ticket and the actual ticket to the game of the owner’s choosing) is $1,000.

This unique opportunity allows the owner to redeem their Timeless Ticket for an actual ticket to any single future Brewers game at Miller Park, whether it’s in 2015 or 2050 or whether it is Opening Day or the 7th game of the World Series.

To redeem the ticket, the owner just needs to contact the Brewers Box Office with their unique Timeless Ticket information as well as a photo ID and the date of the game he or she would like to attend. After redemption, the owner of the Timeless Ticket will keep the personalized brass statue to display. In addition, Timeless Ticket holders may purchase up to three additional companion tickets for the redeemed game at the single game box office price.

All ticket redemptions are subject to availability and owners of the Timeless Ticket are advised to contact the Brewers Box Office with their selected game as early as possible. Redemptions for the Timeless Ticket will be become available once dates for public ticket sales have been announced.

Fans may purchase the Timeless Ticket by calling 414-902-4609, or by sending an email to BrewersTeamStore@Brewers.com.

Official Release: Brewers To Retire Uniform Number For Selig

The Milwaukee Brewers today announced that the Club will honor retiring Major League Baseball Commissioner and former Brewers Owner Allan H. (Bud) Selig by retiring uniform #1 in a ceremony that will take place at Miller Park next season.

“We are proud to pay tribute to Commissioner Selig with this honor for all of his work on behalf of the Brewers as well as Major League Baseball,” said Brewers Chairman and Principal Owner Mark Attanasio. “The uniform number being retired in the Commissioner’s honor is significant, as the existence of the Milwaukee Brewers and Miller Park are a direct result of the Commissioner’s vision. Without his tireless efforts, neither would be a reality.”

This is the first in a series of initiatives that the Brewers have planned to honor Commissioner Selig, who will retire at the end of this year. Additional details will be announced later.

Commissioner Selig said: “I thank Mark Attanasio and his entire organization for this extraordinary honor.  The Brewers are a product of my hometown’s passion for Major League Baseball, and it was a privilege to play a part in restoring the spirit of community and kinship that the National Pastime inspires.  Knowing the great history of this franchise, I am truly humbled to look forward to a memorable day at Miller Park next season.”

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 UPI’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.

More recently, Selig was honored with a statue at Miller Park, which was unveiled on August 24, 2010.

He became the ninth Commissioner of Major League Baseball, and during his tenure the sport has thrived.  As Commissioner, Selig has implemented important changes throughout Major League Baseball. He made popular structural changes in the game, including the Wild Card, the three-division format, Interleague Play and Instant Replay. He put in place the toughest drug-testing program in American professional sports. He also profoundly affected baseball’s economic landscape by instituting meaningful revenue sharing among the clubs as well as successful ventures, such as MLB Advanced Media, MLB Network, and the World Baseball Classic. MLB truly has thrived under Selig’s stewardship: It has enjoyed its longest period of labor peace with its Players Association and has consistently posted records levels of attendance and revenues.

Official: Details On Postseason Ticketing Opportunity

The Milwaukee Brewers have announced details for a Postseason Single-Game Ticketing Opportunity that will give fans the chance to register for the right to purchase tickets to potential individual 2014 Postseason games held at Miller Park.

Beginning today at noon CT., fans interested in registering may go to Brewers.com and look for the link to “Postseason Single-Game Ticketing Opportunity.” With inventory expected to be very limited, it is likely that only a very small number of fans will be selected to purchase tickets through this registration opportunity.

Fans looking to guarantee tickets to Postseason games may bypass the single-game registration by placing a deposit on a Season Seat Plan for 2015. Details on all Postseason ticket options follow:

POSTSEASON SINGLE-GAME TICKETING OPPORTUNITY

Registration will begin at noon CT today and will close at 11:59 p.m. CT on Sunday, September 21.

The Brewers will conduct a random selection of winners from the pool of registrants for each Postseason series. The Wild Card and National League Division Series (NLDS) winners will be selected on or around September 23 and will have the opportunity to purchase up to four (4) tickets to one (1) game of the 2014 Wild Card or NLDS.

Winners for the National League Championship Series (closes Wednesday, October 1) and World Series (closes Sunday, October 12) will be selected from the same of pool registrants at later dates. Registrants (including winners of previous drawings) will be eligible for each drawing.

There is no charge to register for this opportunity, and additional rules and information are available at Brewers.com/postseason.

GUARANTEED RIGHTS TO POSTSEASON TICKETS

The first option is for fans to purchase a Full Season Ticket Plan for the 2015 season. Fans who select this option will be given the opportunity to purchase tickets to ALL 2014 Postseason games at Miller Park, including the World Series.

The second option is for fans to purchase a 20-Game Plan for the 2015 season. Those who choose this option will be given the opportunity to purchase tickets to all 2014 Wild Card, NLDS and NLCS games at Miller Park.
Fans interested in either one of these two options can visit Brewers.com or call 414-902-HITS.

Looking to Save on Ticket Purchasing Fees For Brewers Games?

The Milwaukee Brewers have announced a one-day promotion known as “No Fee Friday,” which features the Brewers covering the cost of all ticket transaction fees for online and phone orders placed this Friday, August 15 between 9 a.m. and 11:59 p.m. CT.

The one-day promotion is valid for any remaining 2014 regular season games at Miller Park.

There are 19 home games remaining on the Brewers’ regular season schedule, and fans can purchase tickets to any of them and not be charged with transaction fees. But the offer is only valid this Friday. For instance, if a fan purchases two tickets for the game on Saturday, September 6 against the St. Louis Cardinals, the fees associated with those tickets would be covered by the Brewers – as long as they are purchased this Friday.

Upcoming games include an Interleague matchup against the Toronto Blue Jays and a three-game weekend series vs. the Pittsburgh Pirates on the team’s next homestand from August 19-24. September’s schedule features an 11-game homestand against the St. Louis Cardinals, Miami Marlins and Cincinnati Reds from September 4 – 14. The team closes the regular season schedule with a three-game weekend set against the Chicago Cubs from September 26 – 28. A variety of giveaways, including three All-Fan bobblehead dates, remain on the schedule, along with Fan Appreciation Night presented by Chevrolet on September 27.

Tickets can be purchased to any remaining Brewers home games by calling (414) 902-4000, online at Brewers.com or by visiting the Miller Park ticket windows. All tickets are subject to availability. No refunds/exchanges. The “No Fee Friday” promotion cannot be combined with any discounted or special offers.
