'It brings diversity to our community': Brewers host Cerveceros Night

NOW: ’It brings diversity to our community’: Brewers host Cerveceros Night

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) – The Milwaukee Brewers hosted Cerveceros Night on Saturday at Miller Park. In the event's 14th year, the celebration honors the heritage and importance of Latin American culture to the great game of baseball.

Miller Park took on a Latin American flair all day with scoreboard features, special plaza performances from the Dance Academy of Mexico, and much more. On the field, Brewers players and coaches wore jerseys with the traditional “Brewers” script replaced by the Spanish translation “Cerveceros.”

Cerveceros night is all about recognizing the Latino community in baseball and the Milwaukee community. The event comes just after a week-long political convention, LULAC, wrapped up. The convention is hosted by the countries largest and oldest Latino civil rights organization. 

"When we had the conference this week, it just brought Wisconsin and Milwaukee up to the limelight," President and CEO of Umos Lupe Martinez said. "People say wow a lot of things happening in Milwaukee, it's a wonderful community." 

UMOS, a non-profit advocacy organization, hosted the “Cerveceros Tailgate” in the Uecker Lot ahead of the game. Brewers' Orlando Arcia and Jesus Aguilar surprised fans at the tailgate party. 

"It brings diversity to our community and families together enjoying this wonderful day, so go, Brewers!" Fan Araceli Macias said.
