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.
