MILWAUKEE, WIS. (March 18, 2020) – Good Karma Brands is excited to announce Newsradio 620 WTMJ will re-broadcast last year’s Milwaukee Brewers Opening Day game on Thursday, March 26th, 2020 at 6 p.m. CST, the date that would have been this year’s Opening Day.
“Even though baseball is on a temporary hiatus, it will be a treat to bring fans the play by play of Bob Uecker and Jeff Levering on WTMJ,” said Steve Wexler, vice president and market manager at Newsradio 620 WTMJ and ESPN Milwaukee.
“There’s nothing like baseball on the radio, especially during these uncertain times.”
Fans will get to relive one of the most riveting games of the Brewers 2019 season, a game that featured six home runs and a thrilling home-run-robbing catch by Lorenzo Cain to end the game.
With hall of famer Bob Uecker on the call, the Brewers topped the rival Cardinals 5-4.
With Opening Day 2020 on hold, Newsradio 620 WTMJ is delighted to bring the soundtrack of summer back to the airwaves with the broadcast of an instant classic.
“With these challenging times, we have to press pause on Brewers Opening Day for the time being. We can still take time to celebrate the day on March 26 as we relive one of the great games from our recent past: Opening Day 2019,” said Rick Schlesinger, Brewers president of business operations.
“We thank our friends at WTMJ for bringing the action to everyone as a reminder that better days are ahead. And while I don’t want to spoil the ending, you’ll want to listen through that last out. You won’t be disappointed.”
