Brewers celebrate 50th anniversary with special throwback decade weekends

The year 2020 marks the 50th anniversary celebration of the Milwaukee Brewers Baseball Club, and with that milestone in mind, the team announced today its Brewers Decade Weekends, as well as several other fan-favorite promotions taking place throughout the season.

The ever-popular bobblehead games, available to the first 35,000 ticketed fans, will this year include Hank Aaron, Paul Molitor, Robin Yount, Ben Sheets, Ryan Braun, Lorenzo Cain, Bob Uecker and two nights featuring Christian Yelich. The 50th anniversary celebration is presented by American Family Insurance, BP C'Mon Back Club, International Autos Group, Northwestern Mutual and Town Bank, a Wintrust Community Bank.

New this year and to commemorate the golden anniversary are the Brewers Decade Weekends. Each weekend will honor a different Brewers decade with themed music and entertainment. The celebratory weekends will feature appearances by Brewers alumni, and the team will wear uniforms from the designated era on the Saturday games of the Decade Weekend. Further, avid fans can purchase tickets on the Saturday games of the Decade Weekend in Section 232, affectionately named the "True Blue Brew Crew" as a tribute to the original Brewers fan section at County Stadium. Fans in this section will receive a unique section T-shirt and signs, and are encouraged to enter early and bring high energy starting with ceremonial first pitches and continuing throughout the game.

The milestone will culminate with the 50th Anniversary Celebration, June 25-26. On Thursday, June 25, a private event will be held to benefit the Brewers Community Foundation. Presented by American Family Insurance, the celebration will honor the many players and coaches who have worn the Brewers jersey and made a positive impact in the Milwaukee community. Friday, June 26 will be a major highlight with a pre-game ceremony honoring the 66 Brewers Wall of Honor inductees, with all of them invited to be in attendance.

The evening will also feature a special 50th anniversary T-shirt, courtesy of Miller Lite, to the first 10,000 tickets fans, ages 21 and over. For a full list and complete details on the Brewers Decade Weekends, visit Brewers.com/50years.
