Fans claim hundreds of Brewers balloons with free tickets, prizes
Milwaukee Brewers fans got up early Tuesday and were finding balloons with free tickets and other Brewers-related prizes like a game in a luxury suite at Miller Park.
Every balloon at Miller Park was claimed by 5:34 a.m.
"I ran upstairs, got my daughter, said 'Let's get out here,' " said Jessica, a fan who went to Miller Park for a balloon. Another fan came out in her pajamas and slippers to get a balloon.
Other balloons were set around the city and suburbs which were still available at that time, including the Bronze Fonz according to Brewers COO Rick Schlesinger.
To help fans, TODAY'S TMJ4's "Live at Daybreak" sent Chopper 4 on a reconnaissance mission to find balloons for fans.
"Once it was announced at 5:00 a.m., we saw people coming in quickly, and they were gone within half an hour down here," Brewers spokesman Tyler Barnes said on TODAY'S TMJ4's "Live at Daybreak."
The Brewers revealed some visual clues about the promotion during their Monday night TV broadcast, and another fan may have found a clue.
