“Autograph Fridays” will be a kids-only affair in 2010, the Brewers announced today.
The team scaled back its promotion from every Friday home game to one Friday per month for the coming season, and said that autographs would be limited to kids 14 and under only. The dates are April 9, May 14, June 25, July 23 and August 27.
“With the popularity of these sessions, our priority is to ensure that children have opportunities to obtain autographs from the players and coaches,” Brewers Executive Vice President of Business Operations Rick Schlesinger said. “Other events, such as Brewers Block Parties and Brewers On Deck, will present opportunities for fans of all ages to obtain autographs.”
Approximately six to eight Brewers players, coaches and alumni will participate in the autograph sessions.
Four of the Kids Autograph Fridays – May 14, June 25, July 23 and August 27 – will occur on 40th Anniversary weekends and will feature alumni participants. Players will sign from 5:45-6:05 p.m. CT and kids and their parents can enter Miller Park through any gate and continue towards the Field Level concourse autograph stations located on the warning track from dugout to dugout. Parents/guardians may line up with their child but will not receive an autograph.
In another change from past seasons, the Brewers will not release the list of players and coaches for each Friday event in advance. A list of participants and their specific signing locations will be posted on the Miller Park video board when the gates open.
