'Fantastic 40' offers fans one-of-a-kind rewards
MILWAUKEE -- The Brewers are sweetening the deal for fans who purchase or renew season ticket packages of 20 games or more for 2011.

Here's how it works: Each day from Jan. 17-Feb. 25, one seatholder will be selected to win a prize that ranges from a chance to join the grounds crew, to lessons with Brewers hitting coach Dale Sveum, to a $1,000 shopping spree in the team store at Miller Park. One season seatholder will even sign a one-day contract with the Brewers, complete with a full uniform and one day's Major League salary.

Fans must purchase or renew a package of 20 games or more to qualify for the drawing. Purchases made prior to Wednesday will already have an entry in the contest. Purchases made within the 40 days will be eligible for the next day's drawing and remainder of the prizes. The last day to purchase to be eligible for prizes is Friday, Feb. 18.

"This has been an exciting offseason for Brewers fans, and this program is designed to reward our Season Seat Holders for their exceptional support," Brewers executive vice president of business operations Rick Schlesinger said in announcing the promotion. "Our goal was to come up with a promotion offering prizes and experiences that are priceless, and every day will offer a new opportunity to win something unique to Brewers Baseball."
