Corey Hart joins the fight against heart disease

(MILWAUKEE) – Corey Hart’s hot start at the plate isn’t the only reason for fans to be in his corner this year.  The right fielder is joining the fight against heart disease and stroke as well!  Starting with the May 7 game against the Cincinnati Reds, fans can purchase Field Outfield Box tickets to all Brewers Monday home games in a special Corey’s Corner section.  For $35*, fans receive a Field Outfield Box ticket (normally $42), plus a Corey’s Corner T-Shirt, and a portion of the proceeds from each ticket sold will help support the life-saving mission of the American Heart Association! 

Tickets go on sale today. To purchase your Corey’s Corner ticket package, please call (414) 902-4000, visit brewers.com/heart or stop by the Miller Park Ticket Office.

“Not only does Corey Hart have the perfect name for this cause, but Corey wears the number ‘1’ for the Crew, a reminder that heart disease including stroke remains the No. 1 killer of men and women across Wisconsin,” said Debra Rollick, Executive Director of the American Heart Association in Southeast Wisconsin.  “We can’t thank the Brewers and Corey enough for their generosity.  Money raised through this promotion will support vital research, help train people in life-saving CPR, and educate people about living a heart-healthy lifestyle.”

Major cardiovascular disease, including stroke, causes 31.3% of all deaths in the state of Wisconsin.  Eighty percent of heart disease is preventable through simple lifestyle changes including quitting smoking, exercising more and eating a healthier diet.  For more information, visit www.mylifecheck.org.  The American Heart Association also supports life-saving research into new surgical techniques, drugs and treatments for heart disease, to help people live longer, healthier lives.  In the past five years, the American Heart Association has spent more than $15 million dollars funding 139 new research studies in the state of Wisconsin alone.

*Corey’s Corner tickets for the Marquee game against the Chicago Cubs on August 20 will be priced at $65.
