Brewers On Deck for Record Ticket Sales Again

The Milwaukee Brewers are set to break another record this year for tickets sold. Brewers COO Rick Schlesinger said, “Ticket sales are well ahead of last year, and had sold one million tickets on Dec 22 for the 2012 season" That is roughly one month earlier than the record set last year. The 2011 Brewers attendance record of 3,071,373 fans could be broke, despite the loss of Prince Fielder, and the still pending appeal of Ryan Braun. The Braun appeal process is under way, as of around Jan 19th, the decision process can last up to 25 days. The Brewers On Deck is under way today at the Frontier Airlines Center, Ryan Braun withdrew out of the On Deck event, Brewers owner Mark Attanasio gave his approval due to the sensitivity of the appeal.
Most of the Brewers players were expected to be in attendance, autograph sessions with past and present players, and announcer's, including Hall Of Famers picture here RobinYount, Rollie Fingers, and hall of fame announcer Bob Uecker, new Brewers, Arimas Ramirez, and Alex Gonzalez, to name a few.
John Axford talking to Rollie Fingers would likely draw lots of attention at the event. Corey hart will also be questioned about playing First Base for a limited amount of games, with Matt Gamel getting first shot for the position left open with Fielders move to the Tigers. Spring training being just around the corner, with three weeks until pitchers and catchers report Feb 19th, Let's get it started already!  Till next time!
