Last fall, Milwaukee Brewers fans were invited to submit their ideas for an alternate Brewers on-field uniform, and the contest resulted in nearly 700 submissions for the “Design a YOUniform” contest.
The Brewers announced the three finalists Tuesday as selected by a panel of judges.
A fan vote to help determine the winner is now open at www.Brewers.com/uniform, and the three finalists’ designs can be viewed at that link.
“The response to this initiative was tremendous,” said Brewers chief operating officer Rick Schlesinger. “It’s a contest that really has not been replicated before, and we were excited to see the creative efforts that the fans put into their designs.” The three finalists – two of whom live outside of Wisconsin – have been invited by the Brewers to travel to Milwaukee for Brewers On Deck at the Delta Center on Sunday, Jan. 27, where the winner will be announced.
The winner will receive a trip to Brewers Spring Training 2013 to see the winning design on the field at a game.
The finalists are: Ron Verrecchio from Catonsville, Md.; Ben Peters from Richfield, Minn.; and Nicholas Fout from Madison, Wis.
The hats and uniforms from the winning design will be worn by all Brewers players and coaches at the Friday, March 22 spring training game at Maryvale Baseball Park against the Chicago Cubs.
In addition, the Brewers announced Tuesday that the uniforms will also be worn at Miller Park on Saturday, March 30, as the Brewers take on the Chicago White Sox in an exhibition game.
