Fans to give Brewers send-off

Free Postseason Rally to take place Monday evening

MILWAUKEE -- Fans have the opportunity to offer the Brewers a playoff send-off before they depart for Philadelphia on Monday evening.

The team will host a free Postseason Rally at the Summerfest Grounds from 4-8 p.m. CT. All of the players and coaches will make an appearance from 5:15 to 6 p.m. After the rally, the Brewers will fly to Philadelphia for the first two games of the National League Division Series, which starts on Wednesday at 2 p.m. CT on TBS.

The first 5,000 fans to show up can enter a raffle for team merchandise and tickets to Game 3 of the NLDS, and the first 10,000 fans will receive rally towels. Entertainment will include a performance by the band Reckless Kelly and a fireworks show to cap the night.
