This Sunday's Brewers On Deck details set
MILWAUKEE -- With the Milwaukee Brewers loading the equipment truck in preparation for their return to Milwaukee, the organization today announced additional details about this Sunday's Brewers On Deck event at Miller Park.
The event is free for all fans (including parking) and features autograph sessions with players on the team's Opening Day roster, interactive games and events and much more. Parking lots will open at 10 am and gates to the ballpark open at 11 am.
Autograph sessions will begin at noon and continue until 2 p.m., and player appearances will be staggered throughout the two hours. There will be eight stations where fans will be able to get autographs, including four on the field's Warning Track, one on each side of the Field Level Concourse, and one on each side of the Loge level Concourse. A program will be distributed to all fans in attendance with times and locations for each player's autograph session.
Four, 30-minute clinics for kids will feature Brewers greats Jim Gantner, Larry Hisle, Gorman Thomas and Jerry Augustine. The clinics will run from Noon until 2 p.m. at the Kids Corner (Field Level concourse).
The day's festivities will also include a Brewers Charities Rummage Sale which will feature Brewers game-worn and game-used equipment such as jerseys, bats, autographed items and a large collection of Brewers paraphernalia. All proceeds from the rummage sale will support the youth recreation and education programs of Brewers Charities. The sale will take place on the Loge Level in the left-field corner of the ballpark.
Brewers TV announcers Brian Anderson and Bill Schroeder will serve as emcees for the event, with live player and staff interviews featured on the center field video board.
Concession stands will be open throughout Miller Park and there will be baseball memorabilia on sale and displayed among the vendor booths near the right-field corner on the Loge Level. In addition, the Fan Zone and kiosks throughout the stadium will offer plenty of Brewers merchandise.
Fans will also be able to test their broadcasting skills at the FSN North Sports Desk, and the "Kids Korner" will feature interactive games for the entire family. These locations can be accessed on the Field Level.
In the first two seasons, Brewers On Deck has attracted more than 25,000 fans to Miller Park.
