Details regarding autographs include the following: Recipients of “PREMIER” autographs (players to be announced at a later date) will be chosen through a random selection process. Each fan in attendance will receive one Premier Entry sheet which may be redeemed at the Random Selection area outside the Main Exhibit Hall of the Wisconsin Center. The Premier Entry sheet will be exchanged for a numbered coupon to be 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.
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. A schedule of players, their session times, and distribution info will be posted later. The autograph opportunities are for signatures on photo cards provided by the team. For additional information, visit Brewers.com/ondeck.
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.
Breaking: Brewers Finalize Coaching Staff
The Milwaukee Brewers have announced the hiring of Carlos Subero as first base/infield coach and Jason Lane as coach. The announcement was made by General Manager David Stearns at Major League Baseball’s annual Winter Meetings in Nashville, TN. The now completed 2016 coaching staff includes Subero, Lane, Darnell Coles (hitting coach), Derek Johnson (pitching coach), Pat Murphy (bench coach), Ed Sedar (third base coach) and Lee Tunnell (bullpen coach). All but Coles, Sedar and Tunnell are new to the staff.
Subero, 43, joins the Major League coaching staff after spending the last two seasons as manager at the Double-A level in the Brewers organization. He guided the Biloxi Shuckers to a Southern League Championship Series appearance in 2015, a season after leading the Huntsville Stars to a postseason berth. The Shuckers were named 2015 Minor League Team of the Year by Baseball America.
Prior to joining the Brewers, Subero managed five seasons in the Dodgers organization at Class-A Inland Empire (2009), Double-A Chattanooga (2010-12) and Class-A Rancho Cucamonga (2013). He also managed in the White Sox organization at Double-A Birmingham in 2008.
Subero began his coaching career in the Rangers organization, which included two seasons as hitting coach with the Rookie Gulf Coast League Rangers (1999-2000) and seven as manager with the GCL Rangers (2001-02), Class-A Clinton (2003-05) and Class-A Bakersfield (2006-07). He owns a career managerial record of 949-973 (.494), including 78-59 (.569) at Biloxi this past season.
A former middle infielder, Subero played six seasons in the minor leagues for Kansas City (1991-94), Pittsburgh (1995) and Texas (1996).
Lane, who turns 39 on December 22, completed 17-year professional playing career in 2015, including seven seasons in the Major Leagues with Houston (2002-07) and San Diego (2007, 2014). The former outfielder was converted into a pitcher in 2012 and made his only Major League pitching appearances with the Padres in 2014, going 0-1 with a 0.87 ERA in three games, including one start (10.1ip, 7h, 1r, 1er, 0bb, 6k). He spent the 2015 season at Triple-A El Paso (San Diego) and went 10-10 with a 5.71 ERA in 28 starts.
Lane was a career .241 hitter in the Major Leagues with 61 HR and 189 RBI in 500 games. His best season came in 2005 as he batted .267 with 26 HR
and 78 RBI in 145 games for the National League champion Astros.
