Full slate of Brewers set to attend 'On Deck'

Fan fest on Jan. 25 includes autograph, photo opportunities

MILWAUKEE -- New Brewers first baseman Adam Lind will make his first Milwaukee appearance on Jan. 25, when he's scheduled to be among nearly 50 players, coaches and alumni taking part in the team's annual "On Deck" event.

Ryan Braun, Carlos Gomez and Jonathan Lucroy are also scheduled to attend the fan fest at Milwaukee's downtown convention center, which features autograph and photo opportunities, game shows and question and answer sessions, memorabilia sales and a kids area. Tickets are $15 for adults and $9 for children if purchased in advance at Brewers.com/OnDeck, or $20 for adults and $15 for children at the door. Advance tickets will be available through Friday, Jan. 23, at noon. A portion of proceeds from the event will benefit Brewers Community Foundation.

Here's the list of scheduled attendees:

Current players and prospects: Michael Blazek, Braun, Juan Centeno, Matt Clark, Clint Coulter, Khris Davis, Mike Fiers, Yovani Gallardo, Scooter Gennett, David Goforth, Gomez, Hector Gomez, Brooks Hall, Jim Henderson, Jeremy Jeffress, Taylor Jungmann, Brandon Kintzler, Kyle Lohse, Lind, Lucroy, Hunter Morris, Jimmy Nelson, Gerardo Parra, Wily Peralta, Shane Peterson, Jason Rogers, Logan Schafer, Will Smith, Michael Strong, Tyler Thornburg and Rob Wooten.

Once again, the Brewers will employ a coupon system for autographs. Recipients of "premier" autographs (players will be announced next week) 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 District. 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. CT 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 $10 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 next week. The autograph opportunities are for signatures on photo cards provided by the team; the Brewers cannot guarantee that any player will sign other memorabilia.

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.
