MILWAUKEE - The All-Star Break has passed, and there’s plenty of room on the first place Milwaukee Brewers bandwagon for late-coming fans of all ages. And today, the Brewers and Froedtert Hospital Birth Center welcomed some of the newest Brewers fans with a set of special gifts.

In a press conference at Froedtert today, the Brewers announced that every baby born at the Froedtert Hospital Birth Center will receive a special keepsake “Born a Brewer” onesie and a receiving blanket. The items are being donated to all newborns courtesy of the Brewers.

At today’s event, Bernie Brewer presented the vocal little sluggers with the special keepsake Milwaukee Brewer onesies and receiving blankets. 


“Many of our fans have been born and raised as Brewers fans,” said Brewers Chief Operating Officer Rick Schlesinger. “The game of baseball creates strong bonds among our many generations of fans, and we want to help our youngest generation take the first step as they develop a connection to Brewers baseball. This initiative, with the support of our great partners at Froedtert, will give children a keepsake to always remember that they were born a Brewer.”

This initiative will give babies Brewers apparel as their first piece of clothing, creating a group of kids who truly will be “Born as Brewers.” Further, families receiving the special keepsake onesie and receiving blanket will be connected to Milwaukee and the Brewers, creating a fun family experience for years to come.

"We’re grateful to the Milwaukee Brewers for their generosity so our little patients will go home in style,” said Lauri Diske, RN, Director for Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin Women’s Health Services at Froedtert Hospital.
