Ryan Braun donating ~$60,000 to give Brewers fans discounted tickets


When the Milwaukee Brewers began their “Brewers Win, You Win” promotion at the beginning of the month, I don’t think the marketing folks figured the club would win so few games.

Feeling confident after finishing the month of April by winning 12 of 15, the Brewers launched a campaign that would knock a dollar off the price of Terrace Box seats for the June 3-5 series against the Athletics with every game that the Brewers won in the month of May. Unfortunately, Milwaukee has won just five games since the promotion started.

Around the bases: Tuesday’s highlights

All of Tuesday’s action in one place.

Seeking to reward the fans in spite of the team’s persistent struggles, outfielder Ryan Braun has donated a substantial sum of money — about $60,000 — to make sure that those seats are discounted in a big way, reports John Steinmiller of MLB.com. For each of the three games against the A’s next month, up to 4,000 seats — normally priced between $23-$24 — will be available for just $8 (Braun’s number, not coincidentally).

Tickets for the promotion go on sale this Friday at 10 am ET. More information on the promotion can be found here.
