2016 Brewers On Deck Schedule

OnDeckBanner

What follows is the official information regarding the schedule of events for the upcoming “Brewers On Deck” fan fest scheduled for Sunday, January 31, 2016, running from 10a – 5p that day.

If you missed the list of announced attendees (which I will continually update as names are added/removed), click here.

The Klement’s Main Stage will include various Q&A sessions with top Brewers baseball executives, the coaching staff and game shows.

The Brewers Interactive Stage will feature Kids Only Question and Answer sessions, where youngsters interview players, and a roundtable discussion with members of the Milwaukee media who cover the team on a regular basis.   Brewers Community Foundation will host a Treasure Hunt, featuring some hard-to-find Brewers items on sale as well as a live auction at 12:00 p.m. on the Interactive Stage.  Additionally, BCF will hold a 50/50 Raffle.  The winner will be announced at the Interactive Stage following the coaching staff autograph session.

Photo sessions with players are also scheduled throughout the day in designated photo areas.  The Brewers Team Store by Majestic will have a full set up with the latest Brewers merchandise for sale and a Brewers Museum will feature memorable artifacts from throughout the history of the team.

Details on the autograph and programming schedules are listed below. The schedules are subject to change, with the latest version and more information available at Brewers.com/ondeck. Autographs this year will be either free, $10, or $25 with proceeds benefitting Brewers Community Foundation.

Recipients of “PREMIER” autographs Ryan Braun, Rollie Fingers, and Bob Uecker will be chosen through a random selection process. Each fan in attendance will receive one Premier Entry card which may be redeemed at the Random Selection area outside the Main Exhibit Hall of the Wisconsin Center.  The Premier Entry card will be exchanged for a numbered coupon and entered into the random selection process for any one of the select Brewers players.  Coupon distribution will be available at 8 a.m. the day of the event and will continue up to an hour before each designated autograph session.

There is no cost for coupons to enter the random selection process; however, those holding winning coupons must pay $25 at the respective autograph stage to collect their player signature.  There will be 250 winners for each of the autograph sessions.  The winning ticket numbers will be posted at the designated autograph stage no less than 30 minutes prior to each player’s session. A schedule is listed below:

PREMIER AUTOGRAPH SCHEDULE
Player                                   Signing Time       Stage
Ryan Braun                          11:00 – 11:45      2
Rollie Fingers                        12:00 – 12:45      1
Bob Uecker                           1:30 – 2:15          4

Players and staff not included in the above autograph list will not use the random selection process. Each of those 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, and personalization of items is solely up to the discretion of each player (BOLD ITALICS – Premier Autograph).
