Brewers unveil plans to debut the "Selig Experience" at Miller Park
MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- The Milwaukee Brewers announced plans on Monday afternoon, December 15th for a new fan experience at Miller Park in 2015. It will be called the "Selig Experience." It will honor outgoing Major League Baseball Commissioner and former Brewers owner Alan "Bud" Selig.
The "Selig Experience" will be located on Miller Park’s Loge Level in the left field corner. The Brewers say a highlight of the attraction will be a multimedia presentation that tells the story of Selig’s role in saving Major League Baseball in Milwaukee, his successful efforts to bring the Brewers to the city, and his tireless efforts to promote and grow the game in his hometown.
According to the Brewers blog, the exhibition space totals approximately 1,400 square feet, and will include authentic artifacts from Selig’s tenure as the Brewers owner. It will celebrate the fans’ love of the game, as told through the story of the Brewers founder.
The main multimedia show builds to a surprising 3D encounter with the Commissioner himself inside an authentic reproduction of Selig’s County Stadium office, using a technology found in only a handful of exhibits around the world. After the show, Milwaukee fans will be delighted to take a sneak peek into Selig’s office for themselves.
Earlier this year, the Brewers also announced that the Club will retire uniform #1 in Selig’s honor, signifying his role as founder of the franchise. The retired number will be displayed in time for Opening Day.
Selig himself calls the experience, "the ultimate honor."
