Brewers Block Parties

Sponsored by US Bank

Block Parties

Brewers baseball and neighborhood block parties are two Milwaukee summer traditions that have been enjoyed for years.

The neighborhood block party season is quickly approaching and the Brewers again have scheduled three "Brewers Block Parties" this summer throughout the Milwaukee area. This marks the fifth season the Brewers have hosted the events throughout the community. The 2011 Brewers Block Parties are supported by the events' presenting sponsor, U.S. Bank, as well as the team's broadcasting partners, Newsradio 620 WTMJ and FS Wisconsin.

All Brewers Block Parties will feature appearances from Brewers players and coaches, Bernie Brewer and the Klement's Famous Racing SausagesTM, and Brewers radio personalities. Raffle prizes featuring Brewers game tickets, game-used memorabilia and other autographed items will also be given away to fans in attendance each day. The Brewers merchandise trailer will be on hand with the latest in Brewers apparel. Free hot dogs, soda and potato chips (compliments of Klement's, Pepsi and Sportservice, respectively) will be provided for roughly 300 people.

All Block Parties are scheduled to begin at 11:00 a.m. and will conclude by 1:00 p.m. Players and coaches will arrive around 11:30 a.m. and will attend for approximately 45 minutes. The players will first participate in a Q&A session, followed by an autograph session. Like last year, the list of specific player appearances will not be announced in advance.

In the first four years of the Brewers Block Parties, over 25,000 people have enjoyed activities throughout the metro area. The Block Parties were cited in an issue of ESPN The Magazine's "Fan Satisfaction Ratings" as a way the team works "to help spread Brewers love."

AUTOGRAPHS AT BREWERS BLOCK PARTIES

The names of Brewers players and coaches attending the Brewers Block Parties will not be posted in advance. There will be approximately eight player stations set up for autographs at the event, and a maximum of 150 free autograph tickets will be distributed at each of the eight stations the morning of the party. The ticket distribution will be discontinued once the players and coaches arrive at the event. No more than one ticket will be given to any fan to ensure that as many people receive autographs as possible. Players will be randomly assigned to the stations as they arrive at the event.
