T-shirts and tickets in demand after Greinke trade
MILWAUKEE - The spike in ticket sales continues at Miller Park today after the weekend trade that brought pitcher Zack Greinke to Milwaukee.
Since Sunday afternoon, the Brewers have added over 1,500 new season seat account holders. That compares to 400 new account holders who signed on during the first two-plus months of the off-season.
"The response from fans has surpassed even our most optimistic expectations," said Brewers Executive Vice President - Business Operations Rick Schlesinger. "The excitement level has peaked in all areas of our business operations, from ticket sales to sponsors to retail sales."
Holiday shoppers can add a final item to their must-have list as the first shipment of Zack Greinke "name and number" t-shirts arrived within the last hour at the Brewers Team Store by Majestic at Miller Park. Store hours are 10 am-6 pm today and tomorrow, and 10 am-2 pm on Christmas Eve. The Miller Park store is the only location that received the initial shipment of items.
In addition, the Brewers have extended the sale of Holiday 4-Packs through Midnight tonight. The packages were scheduled to be pulled off sale on Monday, but the deadline was extended to meet demand after the trade was completed on Sunday afternoon.
Four of the five Holiday 4-Packs include one All-Fan Giveaway date. The fifth Holiday 4-Pack (the Marquee Plus Plan) includes two Marquee Games - one against the St. Louis Cardinals on Saturday, June 11 and the other on Wednesday, July 27 vs. the Chicago Cubs - at non-Marquee pricing. The plans feature two different packages focused on National League divisions: the East Coast Plus Plan and Central Rivals Plus Plan. Additional plans include the Weekend Plus Plan and the Matinee Plan.
Holiday 4-Packs range in price from $60 - $160 and are available in the Field Outfield Box, Loge Infield Box, Club Outfield Box, Terrace Box, Loge Bleachers and Terrace Reserved seat locations. All tickets are subject to availability while supplies last.
