Ryan Braun and John Axford thank Brewers fans by giving away 5,000 tickets

11 Comments

Milwaukee’s season more or less came to an end last night thanks to John Axford blowing a save against the Reds, dropping the Brewers to four games out of the second Wild Card spot.

That might make it tough for fans to appreciate a nice gesture from Axford at this point–or at any point this season, considering his nine blown saves–but the closer has partnered with Ryan Braun to purchase 5,000 tickets for Sunday’s game and give them away for free as part of “Fan Appreciation Weekend” at Miller Park.

Fans can sign up for the free tickets on Brewers.com, although they will “be responsible for paying a per order processing fee.”
