Fans may not be able to set foot into Miller Park to start the Major League Baseball season, but there’s a chance for their pets to get in on the action – virtually.
The Milwaukee Brewers let the cat out of the bag today, announcing they will create the “Pets in the Park” cutout section of Miller Park, in conjunction with the Wisconsin Humane Society.
Two-foot cutouts of beloved pets will join the crowd in Terrace Level seats at Miller Park. The available allotment went on sale at 2 p.m. on Wednesday. Each cutout costs $50, with a portion of the proceeds benefiting Brewers Community Foundation. Games will be broadcast on FOX Sports Wisconsin and fans may catch a glimpse of their cherished family pet cheering on the Brew Crew.
Fans are also encouraged to visit wihumane.org to learn more about the pets available for adoption through the Wisconsin Humane Society, which operates animal shelters in Milwaukee, Ozaukee, Racine, Door and Brown counties, as well as a spay and neuter clinic in West Allis, and offers a comprehensive adoption program.
The Brewers recently launched the Brewers “Cutout Crew” as a way to incorporate fans into the action at Miller Park during the 2020 season and celebrate Bob Uecker’s 50th season as the voice of the Milwaukee Brewers.
Images of fan likeness will be found near Bob Uecker’s “Last Row” statue in the upper reaches of Miller Park. The initial inventory sold out in 90 minutes, but additional space has been opened and there is still limited availability in the “human” sections.
Specific directions on securing a seat and uploading a photo are available on brewers.com/cutoutcrew.
