Big Things on Tap for 2013

Happy New Year, everyone!

2013 represents the Centennial of the American Association Brewers' first pennant. This hasn't gone unnoticed by the big league club; the Brewers are doing something big to celebrate this glorious chapter in Milwaukee baseball history, and I'm honored to have been a small part of it.

The pennant-winning 1913 Milwaukee Brewers

One thing I can tell you now is that the Brewers will be giving away a bobblehead of first baseman Corey Hart wearing a 1913 throwback uniform!

This will be the first official bobblehead honoring our Brews, unless you count the Beer Barrel Man bobble from 2006.

I helped the Brewers with their research on the 1913 uniforms, and was able to send them pictures of an extant jersey from a private collection. I was very encouraged by their insistence that we get it right and be authentic to the originals.

Individual tickets for this game won't go on sale until February, but this game is included in 20-Game Sunday Plus Plan now on sale.

I'll be there; hope to see you at Miller Park on what will be a great day for fans of Milwaukee's baseball history!
