MILWAUKEE — The Milwaukee Brewers and Brewers Community Foundation hosted Milwaukee Fatherhood Initiative Day at Miller Park during the Brewers’ game against the St. Louis Cardinals Monday, July 16th.

The program is tied in with Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett’s Fatherhood Initiative and is designed to raise awareness about the importance of involved, responsible and committed fathers.

A group of 15 fathers and 15 children participated in the program Monday evening. The group was recognized for making strides through the initiative to become more involved in the lives of their children.

The group watched Brewers’ batting practice and enjoyed the game in a luxury party suite with complimentary food and beverages. They also received T-shirts and gift bags.

Each father was entered in a random drawing for the chance to throw out the ceremonial first pitch prior to the game and a child was selected as the Jr. Announcer.
