Braun, Yount headline ‘On Deck’ slate
Just arrived in my inbox from the Brewers:
Twenty-eight current Milwaukee Brewers players plus a host of alumni, Minor League prospects, coaches, front office executives and broadcasters are scheduled to participate in Brewers On Deck, set to take place Sunday, January 29, 2012 from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. at the Frontier Airlines Center. The event is presented by Time Warner Cable.
“Over forty-five players, alumni and coaches will be in Milwaukee to participate, and it’s their commitment to attend that makes Brewers On Deck such a great hit with fans,” said Brewers Chief Operating Officer Rick Schlesinger. “We also have a few surprise guests including some Hollywood celebrities that will participate in the activities. It is always a fun event and we look forward to introducing fans to some of our new players who will take the field this spring.”
Brewers On Deck is the annual Fan Fest that bridges the gap between winter and Spring Training.
Here’s the list of players, coaches and alumni scheduled to attend, all subject to change:
More from the press release:
Tickets for Brewers On Deck are on sale now. Adult tickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the door while tickets for children ages 14 and under are $9 in advance and $15 at the door. Tickets may be purchased at the Miller Park ticket office, by calling the Brewers Ticket office at 414-902-4000, or online at brewers.com/ondeck. On the day of the event, only cash will be accepted for purchases made at the door.
Brewers On Deck will feature a number of activities for the entire family. Autographs and photos from Brewers players and coaches, the always popular “Game Shows” featuring Brewers players and prospects, interactive games, Q&A sessions with players and staff, vendor booths with baseball memorabilia, the Brewers Community Foundation Treasure Hunt and many other activities will all be a part of Brewers On Deck.
The same system for autographs will be used for Brewers On Deck that was introduced last year. Recipients of any “PREMIER” autographs (players to be announced at a later date) will be chosen through a random selection process. Numbered coupons to be entered into the random selection process will be available the day of the event only and will be distributed beginning at 8 a.m. at the Frontier Airlines Center. Coupon distribution will be available up to an hour before each designated autograph session. A schedule of players, their session times, and distribution info will be posted in early January 2012.
Fans can receive one coupon per event admission ticket and can use that coupon to enter the random selection process for any one of the select Brewers players. There is no cost for coupons to enter the random selection process; however, those holding coupons that are chosen must pay $25 at the respective autograph stage to collect their player signature. There will be 250 winners for each of the PREMIER autograph sessions.
Players and staff not included in the PREMIER autograph list will not use the random selection process. Each of these players will sign 250 autographs at prices ranging from free to $10. The autograph opportunities are for signatures on photo cards provided by the team; the Brewers cannot guarantee that any player will sign other memorabilia.
Autograph proceeds benefit Brewers Community Foundation. Please note that cash is the only acceptable form of payment for autographs.
The Brewers cannot guarantee that any player will sign other memorabilia, and personalization of items is solely up to the discretion of each player.
