MILWAUKEE — The Miller Park employee fund is even closer to its $1 million goal, thanks to the generosity of Bob Uecker, Ryan Braun, and several other Brewers' players.

With the coronavirus putting sports on hold, Miller Park employees are out of work, and some are without an income. To help their workers, the Brewers established a $1 million fund.

Now, that fund is even closer to reaching $1 million thanks to Uecker, Braun, Corey Knebel, Josh Lindblom, Brent Suter, and Christian Yelich.

When the fund was established, Braun kicked things off by donating $100K. That was followed by Uecker giving $50K. Now, Knebel, Lindblom, Suter, and Yelich have all made a combined donation of $300K.

Those donations alone bring the total to $450K. All of that, going to Miller Park employees.
