Ben Oglivie and Bernie Brewer to Appear at July 13 Mallards Game
Friday the 13th bad luck strikes again. Due to an agreement between 20th Century Fox and Major League Baseball, Chauncey Leopardi, Squints from the movie The Sandlot, will no longer be able to appear at the Friday, July 13th Mallards game as originally scheduled. However, the Mallards are excited to announce that former Milwaukee Brewer Ben Oglivie will be appearing instead. Oglivie will also be joined by fan favorite Bernie Brewer!
The Mallards will offer a private meet and greet session for 50 fans from 5:30-6:00 PM. Fans with meet and greet tickets will be able to receive an autograph and take a photo with Oglivie. Beginning at 6:00 PM, Ben will sign autographs for the general public. However, during this time, no fans will be allowed to take posed photos with him. Fifty meet and greet tickets are available now for $20 and include VIP access and a terrace seat for the game. To purchase a Meet and Greet ticket, click here.

Brewers mascot, Bernie Brewer, will also be in attendance from 5:30-7:30 PM. He will be roaming the stadium, taking photos and interacting with fans of all ages.
Oglivie suited up for the Brewers from 1978-1986. In 1980 he was named the American League Silver Slugger and MVP finalist after posting a .304 average and blasting 41 home runs. He was also a three-time All-Star. Oglivie was also part of the 1982 American League championship team that lost in the World Series 4-3 to the Cardinals.
