Reliever Mitch Stetter (left) and first base coach Ed Sedar today helped the Brewers unveil alternate road jersey tops featuring the word “Milwaukee” across the front that the team will begin wearing “occasionally” during the 2010 season. The club will also continue to use its primary grey road jerseys, which say, “Brewers.”
That fact that “Milwaukee” was missing has long been a point of contention for some fans, who have been vocal about their desire to see the Brewers trumpet the city they call home. Club officials have explained in the past that “Brewers” was chosen to represent the team’s statewide fan base.
The new uniform top will be available exclusively at the team stores at Miller Park and at Maryvale Baseball Park beginning Friday Throughout the month of February, shoppers will receive two free Brewers tickets to an upcoming game with the purchase of the new jersey.
If the jersey is purchased at the Brewers Team Store by Majestic at Miller Park, the tickets will be for one of three select games in April. If the jersey is purchased at the FanZone at Maryvale, the two tickets will be for a 2010 Spring Training game at Maryvale Baseball Park.
