Kids treated to Safe Summer Brewers Game at Miller Park
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The Brewers lost to the Royals Wednesday afternoon, but they had some young fans cheering them on.
More than 2,500 children were treated to the Brewers-Royals game. The kids at Wednesday's events participated in one of hundreds of local non-profit youth programs. It's part of the 14th annual "Safe Summer Brewers Game" event.
Mayor Tom Barrett hosted the event and the tickets were donated by the Brewers Community Foundation. He says the event provides a unique experience for the kids.
"For a lot of the kids who are here today, they really haven't had a lot of opportunities to be to the ballpark before. So again, working with the Brewers Community Foundation, we've created a great partnership to allow a lot of kids in the city of Milwaukee to come see the Brewers play. and that makes future baseball fans. so it's great for the brewers it's great for the kids it's great for everyone," said Mayor Barrett.
Mayor Barrett and one of the kids attending today, Jessica Morales from Lacausa Charter School threw out the ceremonial first pitch.
