Vote Now in the Brewers' "YOUniform" Contest!

The Brewers have been running a "YOUniform contest", where fans were encouraged to send in submissions for a one-off batting practice jersey and cap. The winning design will be worn in a Spring Training game.

The semi-finalists have been announced, and I'm pleased to say that two of the three incorporate the "Beer Barrel Man", Owgust's descendant.

Let's look at all three.

The first entry (in no particular order) is from Ron Verrecchio of Catonsville, MD:
The next set was designed by Ben Peters of Richfield, MN:
And finally comes this design from Nicholas Fout of Madison:
I have to admit, I'm very much partial to Ben's design. Looks a little like something I worked up for the Brewers not that long ago. And if that's the winning design, I will definitely buy the cap.

The fans have been given a vote as one of eight judges (the others to include reliever John Axford and General Manager Doug Melvin). The fan vote is now open, and will remain open until Tuesday, January 22 at 10a.m. Central time.

You can vote once per day, so vote early, vote often!
