What's better than Brewers tickets? Normally I'd say "free Brewers tickets" – but "Brewers tickets that come with a legendary player's autograph" is somehow even better. That's deal with the Brewers' home game on Friday, Aug. 5, a celebration of the great 1982 Brewers team – now featuring a special ticket package that scores fans an autograph session with a Brew Crew Hall of Famer.
Before the 7:10 p.m. first pitch against the Cincinnati Reds, fans who purchase a ticket package will get to choose an autograph session with either Rollie Fingers, Ted Simmons, Robin Yount or Paul Molitor. (For those who want all four Brewers legends, fans can purchase up to four autograph ticket packages per person.) Participants scan bring an item into American Family Field to be autographed or the team will provide a photo to be signed.
After you get your autographs, the ticket package of course comes with a seat (field outfield box level) to the evening's game – featuring an on-field ceremony reuniting the pennant-winning 1982 team. Led by Bud Selig and Bob Uecker, the event is expected to include Jerry Augustine, Dwight Bernard, Mark Brouhard, Mike Caldwell, Cecil Cooper, Jamie Easterly, Rollie Fingers, Jim Gantner, Moose Haas, Larry Hisle, Roy Howell, Harvey Kuenn Jr. (on behalf of Harvey Kuenn), Pete Ladd, Bob McClure, Paul Molitor, Don Money, Charlie Moore, Ben Oglivie, Ed Romero, Ted Simmons, Jim Slaton, Daron Sutton (on behalf of Don Sutton), Gorman Thomas, Dina Warner and Beth Ledbetter (on behalf of Harry Warner), and Robin Yount.
The special ticket package is currently on sale, costing $99 each and available online only at brewers.com/themenights. For more information on the ticket package and other plans for the 1982 team's 40th anniversary, visit the Brewers website.
As much as it is a gigantic cliché to say that one has always had a passion for film, Matt Mueller has always had a passion for film. Whether it was bringing in the latest movie reviews for his first grade show-and-tell or writing film reviews for the St. Norbert College Times as a high school student, Matt is way too obsessed with movies for his own good.
When he's not writing about the latest blockbuster or talking much too glowingly about "Piranha 3D," Matt can probably be found watching literally any sport (minus cricket) or working at - get this - a local movie theater. Or watching a movie. Yeah, he's probably watching a movie.
