Brewers Fantasy Camp scheduled for February 2-9
MILWAUKEE - The Milwaukee Brewers will host their annual Fantasy Camp from February 2-9, 2014 in Phoenix at Maryvale Baseball Park, the Spring Training home of the Milwaukee Brewers. Brewers Fantasy Camp allows fans to live out their dreams of playing in the big leagues and gives them a taste of working, playing and living like a Major Leaguer.
Registration for Brewers Fantasy Camp is open at Brewers.com/fantasycamp, but fans will want to act quickly as there are only five available spots remaining. Brewers Fantasy Camp includes round-trip coach airfare to and from Milwaukee and Phoenix along with hotel accommodations (double occupancy). Travel dates are set for Sunday, February 2 and Sunday, February 9.
Fantasy campers will receive an authentic Brewers uniform and batting practice jersey. They will be separated into six teams and will participate in daily baseball drills under the instruction of a number of Brewers greats, including Jerry Augustine, Mike Caldwell, Jeff Cirillo, Mike Felder, Jim Gantner, Pete Ladd, Don Money, Gorman Thomas and Ed Sedar.
Two games will be played at Maryvale Baseball Park during each day of camp. A daily newsletter will be handed out with player stats and other information and a nightly happy hour and Q&A session with the coaches will conclude each day.
Also included in the package is a daily hot breakfast at the hotel, catered lunch each afternoon in the clubhouse, care from a professional clubhouse staff and athletic trainers, a professional massage therapist and a farewell awards banquet. Participants will also be introduced on the field prior to a Brewers 2014 home game and will be invited to play a game at Miller Park next summer.
Packages are $4,199 for each player and camp is open to men and women over the age of 30. Fans can register online at Brewers.com/fantasycamp or by calling (414) 321-8605.
