MILWAUKEE -- Last year it was Chorizo and the year before, Bernie Brewer, and now Polish has gone missing and only Brewers fans can help find him. It is the third year that one of our beloved Brewers mascots has gone missing. It all began in 2011 with the unforgettable "Where's Bernie?" and continued last year with "Where's Chorizo?" The popular promotion is back this year with "Where's Polish?"
Here's how it works: In preparation for "Spring Madness" (see below), The Klement's Famous Polish Racing Sausage has been hard at work. Not only has he gone missing from Miller Park the last few days (including missing Wednesday's Race), but he has spent the hours mapping and planting over 2,000 Polish lawn ornaments in the grass areas surrounding Miller Park and its parking lots.
Beginning at 5 a.m. Monday morning, fans may come to Miller Park to pick up their very own Polish lawn ornament. For fans finding an ornament, it's theirs to keep, but there is a STRICT LIMIT of one ornament per person. The scavenger hunt will continue until all ornaments have been claimed, and Brewers staff will be in place in all planting locations to monitor the scavenger hunt activities.
The allotment of Polish ornaments is expected to be claimed quickly, and there is no guarantee that everyone coming to Miller Park in the morning will leave with one of the prizes.
Each lawn ornament will be affixed with a pouch that includes game tickets for a Spring Madness game, set for May 20 through May 22 at Miller Park. The Brewers will host the Los Angeles Dodgers during Spring Madness, and Brewers fans can save 50% on all tickets $34 or less. In addition, Klement's hot dogs and small Pepsi products are just $1 each for all three games.
"Spring Madness is always one of our most popular promotions and values for fans, and this event is a great way to begin the fun," said Brewers Chief Operating Officer Rick Schlesinger.
PLEASE NOTE: Parking for Monday's scavenger hunt is only available in the Molitor Lot, which is located directly north of I-94. Fans should enter the Molitor Lot from Blue Mound Road and walk down Yount Drive to participate in the scavenger hunt.
