Christian Yelich announced as R.B.I. Baseball 20 cover star

640 360

Hot off the heels of the Brewers’ new logos and uniforms which were officially revealed earlier this week, the team continues to create buzz as their superstar outfielder Christian Yelich was announced this morning as the cover star of next year’s annual entry into the “R.B.I. Baseball” series.

Sporting the team’s new home cream uniforms and with the 50th anniversary emblem clearly visible, Yelich’s appearance marks the first time in which a Brewers player will appear on the cover of an officially licensed MLB video game.

The MVP joins the ranks of elite players Anthony Rizzo, Mookie Betts, Corey Seager, Francisco Lindor and Alex Bregman who have graced the cover of the arcade-style series since its return in 2014. Notably, all but Lindor have been to the World Series since being on the cover as a part of their respective team and this hopefully spells good luck for the Brewers as they still aim for their first world championship.

Not much is currently known about the next installment of the series as the official announcement of the game from developers MLB Advanced Media simply promises “exciting new game features” and “no shortage of things to look forward to” ahead of the game’s release.

R.B.I. Baseball 20 will launch in March 2020 on Xbox One, Playstation 4, Nintendo Switch, iOS and Android.

Grading the Brewers new logos and uniforms

640 334

Last night at Miller Park, the Milwaukee Brewers unveiled a new set of logos and uniforms for the 50th anniversary of the Seattle Pilots moving to Milwaukee, and it’s all I can think about.

Granted, I am a massive Brewers fan and the only other notable baseball news right now is the ongoing Houston Astros’ sign-stealing drama but with a heartfelt video narrated by team manager Craig Counsell and a delightfully cheesy hashtag in #glovestory accompanying the rebranding, there is palpable hype surrounding the team over this change despite the primary logo being leaked a few weeks back.

The new logos replace the primary “M” logo which the team has used since 2000 as they began playing at Miller Park; and while the visual similarities to the Miller logo were nice, it inevitably became outdated in the near 20 years since and thus a change felt necessary. Returning to the “ball-in-glove” motif introduced in the late 1970s as the primary logo also makes sense as it has long been preferred by fans and feels as though it belongs to the fans — it was designed by a UW-Eau Claire student.

So, as a Brewers devotee and someone who obsesses over logos and branding given my art degree, I’m going to do my best to grade all of the Brewers new logos and uniforms in hopes that I can make sense of why this rebranding is so exciting.

The Logos

Primary Logo

It’s hard to improve on the perfection of the original “ball-in-glove” logo but the madmen somehow did it.

The ball is now centered in the “B” (something which I can’t unsee when looking at the original), and divides the glove into three segments that, according to the Brewers’ official site for the rebrand, represent the fans, city, and state, which are central to everything the organization does. The “M” and “B” are now connected, a detail which I initially disliked before learning that it is meant to represent the connection between the city and the team and now my heart is full.

And even the royal blue of the original “ball-in-glove” era makes a small cameo in the inner circle of the logo!

Grade: A

State Art

The first secondary logo is based on one of the team’s oldest logo motifs which places a blue “M” over the state of Wisconsin. Cream City bricks make up the background and a baseball is placed on Milwaukee. In addition, the “M” matches the new industrial font which the team uses on their jerseys — a nice touch.

While not my favorite secondary logo the Brewers have used, the Cream City bricks and the baseball indicating Milwaukee’s location and the team’s plans to stay in the city make this the best version of this logo in my opinion as it moves beyond simply stating “WE’RE FROM WISCONSIN.”

Grade: B

Wheat Ball

An entirely new logo, the perfectly named “wheat ball” retains what was arguably the best part of the Brewers’ previous logo: the barley accent. This obviously brings to mind Milwaukee’s brewing history which gives the team their name and recontextualizes them as the seams on a baseball.

This logo is so perfect in its simplicity and uniqueness that I almost wish it was the new primary logo, but I realize how important the “ball-in-glove” logo is to generations of fans. I’m already budgeting for all of the hats I’m going to buy with this beauty on it.

Grade: A+

Full Barrelman

I’ve always wondered about the origins of Barrelman. I don’t mean the origin of his creation (he was originally created as a mascot for the minor league Milwaukee Brewers in the 1940s and known as “Owgust,” in case you were wondering) but instead how he came to exist.

Is he kind of like a Minotaur-esque creature with a barrel top-half and a human bottom-half? Is he simply a man dressed as a barrel? Was he a barrel given life like Frosty the Snowman or Pinocchio? While this new logo doesn’t answer any of my questions regarding Barrelman lore, it does bring back the Brewers first logo with a new color palette, slight detail changes and more shadows.

I definitely dig it as it makes a cartoon barrel person a little more contemporary and intimidating for the 21st century but it’s a little out of place when compared to the other new logos because of its complexity, which I worry will be lost unless it’s seen on a large scale.

Grade: B-

Partial Barrelman

The final new logo again uses the mysterious Barrelman as a base but focuses on his head and face. He now has a little more attitude and some fierce winged eyeliner (at least that’s my theory) in addition to retaining the same color palette and shadows of the new, full Barrelman.

Unlike the full Barrelman, the disembodied head of this icon is much more in line with the simplicity of the other logos. Focusing on the more aggressive face helps to reinforce that the Brewers are not a team to underestimate.

I really appreciate this logo but I fear it may be confusing to people who don’t know who Barrelman is. Although maybe the less known about the peculiar Barrelman, the better.

Grade: B+

The Uniforms

Home Cream

Referencing Milwaukee’s nickname as the “Cream City,” the new primary home uniforms ditch the white base for a cream color and welcome back the wide piping around the sleeves which was seen in the 1970s jerseys. The font used for the team name is also a reference to the city’s industrial heritage and the same as seen in the state art logo.

While I tend to dislike cream uniforms due to it often looking like a dirtied white, the blue and yellow of this jersey contrast really well with the cream and bring out the retro tones perfectly. The wheat ball on the sleeve is a nice touch and helps to reinforce the cream color too.

Grade: A-

Home Pinstripe

I was really worried that with new uniforms would come the loss of the Brewers’ iconic pinstripes, which have seen a resurgence in popularity after the team’s viral “Mean Girls” parody from last year. I can’t just STOP saying “On Fridays, we wear pinstripes!”

Thankfully, my worries were unfounded and the design is largely unchanged. The uniform now features the same industrial wordmark as the home cream as well as the wheat ball. Perfect remains perfect.

Grade: A

Away gray. #glovestory

A post shared by brewers (@brewers) on

Road Gray

The “gray sheep” of the uniforms, the road gray is the least vibrant of the new unis. Even with the thin piping around the sleeves and state art above it, used to symbolize the team’s duty to play with state pride, this is my least favorite of the four. It’s decidedly less retro-inspired than everything else introduced and while the industrial “Milwaukee” does contrast with the gray, it still seems too dull.

Not bad at all, but not phenomenal.

Grade: C+

View this post on Instagram

Away navy. #glovestory

A post shared by brewers (@brewers) on

Road Navy

In contrast to the road gray, the road navy uniform is simply electric. Thin yellow piping on the sleeves and down the front complement a gorgeous industrial script lettering which is both bold and elegant, while subtly calling back to the Brewers preceding wordmark. It’s also not seen anywhere else in these new assets.

This uniform is arguably unlike anything the Brewers have worn before and suddenly at the top of my Christmas list.

Grade: A

Throughout last night’s press conference, a common thread was that the redesign is for the fans. And after looking at every new element, it’s hard to argue with that sentiment. With aspects of every design referencing either Milwaukee’s past or present with a visual eye toward the future, it is obvious that a lot of care went into this face-lift.

It continues to be an exciting time to be a Milwaukee Brewers fan and it will be exciting to see what else the team has in store for its 50th anniversary season, even if my wallet is a little afraid of this new aesthetic era.

Campsite 131 will host a winter wonderland ‘Santa Camp’ pop-up bar

640 335

Pop-up bars are all the rage lately, as evidenced by City Lounge’s popular recent TV makeovers (its “Friends” pop-up bar opens on Friday). But the Camp Bar offshoot Campsite 131 is going a more traditional route for its upcoming pop-up bar. The bar at 131 N. Jackson St. will convert itself into a winter wonderland called “Santa Camp” for the holidays.

https://www.facebook.com/events/545248419622377/

The bar will host ugly sweater parties, Santa Claus visits, and a Toys For Tots collection, OnMilwaukee reports. It’ll also organize a Christmas Carol Crawl with caroling at all Camp Bar locations on Saturday, Dec. 7.

Like all things Christmas now, “Santa Camp” will open before Thanksgiving. It’ll run Friday, Nov. 22 through Dec. 31. More information is available at the “Santa Camp” Facebook page.

Is this the Milwaukee Brewers’ new official logo?

200 193

Since the team’s cruelly quick elimination from the post season this month, rumors have spread around Brewers Twitter that the team may be about to announce an update to its logo. And now, thanks to one eagle-eyed sports fan very prepared for this winter’s hot stove, we may have a blurry glimpse at that new logo.

Twitter user @Gord93 spotted what might be the team’s new logo on the bottom corner of a preview of a Topps baseball card featuring Bernie Brewer.

Let’s zoom in on this one a little bit.

It’s an update on an old favorite, the beloved ball and cap logo the team used between 1978 and 1994. The team has resurrected that logo quite often in recent years, both on merchandise and in games. The team wore the old logo in 52 games this season, according to SportsLogos.net.

In the new version the logo is navy, the baseball has two seams, the mitt looks a little different and there’s some extra lettering. But it’s basically the same idea.

It’s definitely more design-forward than the Brewers’ current logo, which the team has worn indifferently since 2000. They were probably overdue for an update.

Five gorgeous fall family hikes near Milwaukee

640 425

Cooler temps equal one thing in my mind: GREAT HIKING WEATHER! Minimal mosquitoes, less overheating and complaining from my kids, and views of leaves changing colors are all selling points when I’m considering what to do with my week.

When I suggest hiking to my four kids, ages 5-10, they predictably chime in with protests of “But it’s SO boring!” and “It’s too hard!” So over my tenure of dragging them to do things I like to do (parenting), I’ve learned to call hiking “playing in the woods” because at the end of every single hike, my kids are begging for more and talking about their next adventure outside.

Gorgeous colors at Holy Hill

Below are quick reviews of my five favorite hikes to do with kids in the Milwaukee area. I’ve included some that are free of charge, some that are ADA accessible, some that are in the city, and some that require a drive. Before you go, remember these tips:

  • Have your kid(s) carry a backpack for their own water and hiking accessories like magnifying glasses, paper/pencil for drawing, binoculars etc.
  • Check the weather, wear sturdy shoes with socks, and bring extra clothes for afterward
  • PACK LOTS OF SNACKS with those water bottles, and carry out your garbage like a responsible citizen
  • Much like the parenting strategy “leave the park when they’re having fun so they’ll want to come back someday,” start with shorter and easier hikes at first. If your kids are left wanting more, they’ll be more excited the next time you plan a hike. 
Hide and Seek at Retzer Nature Center

Retzer Nature Center

This free center has both indoor and outdoor activities. It’s a 30 minute drive from the city, and a wonderful way to introduce hiking to your littles. The very short adventure trail is ADA accessible, with Braille and lettered signs highlighting native Wisconsin plants, birds and animals. Check out the trail map for lots of easy hikes through pines and prairies, and make sure to see what the nature center has to offer when you go (hint…there’s a planetarium!!). Bathrooms are available inside the nature center 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. at S14W28167 Madison St. Waukesha, Wis., 53188.

Wehr Nature Center

Whitnall Park offers more than Boerner Botanical Gardens and a golf course; it’s home to Wehr Nature Center, too! This gem is part of Milwaukee County Parks and hosts flat trails, a wheelchair accessible boardwalk, a waterfall and much more. If you have more adventurous hikers, don’t worry because Wehr offers over three miles of trails in total. Admission is free, and there is a $3.50 parking fee for cars. Restrooms are open inside during building hours at 9701 W. College Ave. Franklin, Wis., 53132.

Scenic trees at Holy Hill

Holy Hill

This adventure is prime for viewing fall leaves, so to plan around peak colors visit Travel Wisconsin for a Fall Color Report. Then, fuel up for your hike at The Sawmill Inn just east of Holy Hill, and make sure to try the blueberry pancakes! While Holy Hill is a place of worship, it offers a spiritual connection to nature as well. This is a great opportunity to have a conversation with your family about how diverse our community is (both locally and globally), and the different religious and spiritual beliefs that surround us daily. The Scenic Tower has 178 steps to the top of an outstanding lookout, and remember that the top of the tower is open with large windows and may make some kids nervous. Also be aware that in rainy or very windy conditions, the tower may be closed so give the monastery a call at 262-638-2838 to confirm. In addition to the tower, Holy Hill has a paved path through the Stations of the Cross and links up to the Ice Age Trail, if you’re looking for a longer hike. Restrooms and parking are available at the base of The Basilica at 1525 Carmel Rd. Hubertus, Wis., 53033.  

Exploring abandoned factory remnants at Scuppernong Nature Trail 

Scuppernong

The Scuppernong area in Dousman has quickly become my go-to spot because within a few miles there are three choices for great hikes. The Scuppernong Springs nature trail is about 1.5 miles long and meanders through natural springs, abandoned factory walls and outstanding prairie views. If you’re up for a more challenging hike among tall pines and hardwoods, head to the Scuppernong Trail System. The red loop is 2.3 miles of considerably hilly and gorgeous terrain, with the option of doing even longer hikes on the green and orange loops. I’m a sucker for shade and wind protection from towering trees, so this is one of my all time favorite hikes. Additionally, Paradise Springs is only a 10 minute drive from the Scuppernong trails, and is a half mile paved trail through an abandoned hotel/horsetrack/spring house. Check out the links for more history! You’ll need a daily or annual vehicle admission sticker for these locations, and vaulted toilets are available at the parking lot of the Scuppernong Trail System. [Pro tip: vehicle admission stickers make GREAT gifts!]

Lapham Peak observation tower

Lapham Peak

Only 30 minutes from Milwaukee is home to Lapham Peak, with trails for hiking, biking, skiing and more. You may know of the intermediate and advanced trails which have some elevation, but if you’re starting out with kids you should check out the Plantation Path. It’s just under two miles, is paved, and leads to the observation tower for some great fall color viewing. Enter off of Highway C in Delafield, with your previously mentioned vehicle admission sticker, and park at the Homestead Parking lot where restrooms are available. When you follow the signs for the Plantation Path, you’ll be led through a prairie restoration project, and eventually through a pine plantation. About halfway through the loop, a small path leads to the 45-foot observation tower with wonderful views of the area, even of Holy Hill in clear weather!

88Nine Labs’ Longplay showed Milwaukee that video games are more than just for fun

640 401

Back on Oct. 4 and 5, 88Nine Labs hosted its first-ever video game festival called Longplay as part of the Fall Experiment. The festival consisted of gaming tournaments, panels, talks and an area to just hang out play video games.

88Nine Labs wanted to create a unique gaming experience that was inclusive and diverse and looked at gaming holistically, which is rare for the Midwest region as a whole. Most don’t know that the gaming industry has earned more income than the movie and music industry combined. 88Nine Labs want to show that there are a lot of opportunities for students, entrepreneurs, and brands in Milwaukee in the gaming industry. We wanted Longplay to be a catalyst for this discussion.

We kicked off Longplay with a collaboration with Fall Experiment’s STEM programming. We invited Madison game studio Filament Games to talk about their VR game Breaking Boundaries to students.

Breaking Boundaries immerses players in the life and times of famous figures like Jane Goodall, Marie Curie and Grace Hopper. Players will explore each scientist’s real-life work environments and will gain an intimate knowledge of their lives and achievements through fully voice-acted vignettes that are steeped in historical context.

Filament Games’ James LaPierre talking to students

Filament Games’ James LaPierre discussed the game creation process, with an emphasis on learning and persevering through failure.

The next panel dealt with creating communities online and in real life and was moderated by Lynn Richter. They discussed the work that goes into creating events and online communities that bring people together and keep them coming back.

Later that day, Longplay hosted a live podcast recording with Milwaukee Institute’s Kathleen Gallagher, Golden Angel Investors’ Tim Keane and Justin Beck, CEO of Madison’s PerBlue. They discussed the mobile game industry. In 2016, PerBlue sold their game “DragonSoul” to GREE International for $35 million. And in 2018, they partnered with Disney to create the mobile game “Heroes: Battle Mode.” During the discussion, the panelists discussed how PerBlue builds games that achieve such a high level of success.

Mobile gaming accounts for about 60% of market share in gaming spend in 2019, which adds up to about $95.4 billion in revenue according to a report from Liftoff.

Then I moderated a panel titled “The Future of Music in Gaming and Esports.” My panelists included Joshua Remsburg from Capitol Records, HipHop Gamer from New York’s Hot 97, NWA founding member Arabian Prince, Bottlespark founder James Thompson, and video game music composer Chase Bethea. We discuss all aspects of music and gaming from licensing to music discovery to bring gaming into music festivals and more.

The opportunities for music discovery in gaming is growing every day. For example, the number one jazz album on the Billboard charts came from the video game “Cuphead.” And most recently, CHRVCH’s latest song will appear on the soundtrack for the game “Death Stranding.” Even there are labels dedicated to music and gaming such as the new imprint Lost Rings. Capitol Records is even building its own game streaming studio inside its iconic headquarters in Hollywood.

Other highlights of Longplay included a panel discussion on the mental health benefits of gaming moderated by Lynn Richter and Shareef Jackson. Panelists included Stephen Machuga and Mathew Bergendahl from Stack Up, a non-profit that uses gaming to help veterans and military personnel with PTSD, anxiety and depression; She Snaps a twitch streamer who in addition to streaming video games, she talks about mental health issues on her stream.

Check out this inspiring story about how gaming helped one veteran dig out of depression. You can also read this study on the benefits of gaming on mental health. Video games have also helped me with my depression and anxiety as well.

Good of Gaming: Mental Benefits of Gaming Panel

Longplay also addressed accessibility in video games with the panel “The Contemporary State of Gaming.” The panel was moderated by IndependenceFirst’s Chris Hege, who runs their esports program. The panel discussed accessibility, trends, online experience, pro-gaming and equity in the virtual world. 

The Contemporary State of Gaming panel

During the past Super Bowl, Microsoft released a commercial showing off their new adaptive controller, which allows people with a variety of disabilities to play video games.

Another panel discussion tackled the issue of diversity and representation in gaming and esports or the lack of. We kicked the panel discussion off with a screening of a short film called “Gamers” by Pixar’s Searit Huluf and Tiahja Nakahara. Panelists also included Alexa Lopez from i.c. stars, Shareef Jackson, Bryant Wilcox owner of Milwaukee’s Battlebox studios on the north side, and Sugargamers’ co-founder Jennifer Tonge, an organization based in Chicago that advocates for better representation in the gaming industry.

Diversity and Representation in Gaming and Esports panel

In a recent report, African-American and LatinX make up about 6% of the industry while women up about 30% of the industry. The same report also stated that several studies indicate that African Americans, Latinx and Asians are more active in the gaming community than their white counterparts. For starters, African Americans play more video games overall: 83% of African American teens report playing video games compared to 71% of white teens.

Recently, we have seen more people of color as major characters in big-budget video games. For example, the upcoming Marvel Avengers video game protagonist will be Ms. Marvel, who is a young Muslim woman with powers. But a lot still needs to change.

We also had a panel discussion about the variety of career opportunities in the gaming industry. Panelists included Milwaukee Street Fighter pro-gamer Dave Edwards, Cayle Drabinksy from Bucks Gaming, Hot 97’s HipHop Gamer, the owner of Tier 1 gaming lounge Jordan Tian and more. There are so many career opportunities in video games from developer, musician, journalist, professional gamer and more.

Another conversation we had at Longplay dealt with Twitch and video game streaming. One of the panelists was Jonathan Brostoff, a Wisconsin Legislature and Twitch streamer, who plays Magic The Gathering and has a decent following. Other panelists included Lynn Richter, She Snaps, Bottlespark founder James Thompson, and Shareef Jackson, who is part of a weekly Dungeons & Dragons stream on Twitch. They discuss everything on how and why to stream to how to make money from streaming.

Twitch 101 and Beyond panel

Longplay also hosted two talks. The first talk was “VR & AR: Legal Aspects of #TheNextEvolution” by Ross Hersemann. Ross talked about the legal ramifications of developing AR (Augmented Reality) and VR (Virtual Reality) programs.

The second talk dealt with esports and gaming at the high school level and the benefits for students’ overall education. The talk was called “Esports and the Scholar Gamer” and it was presented by James O’Hagan, the esports director for Racine Unified School District. He presented that using video games and esports in a strategic way can help a student in a variety of ways from socializing to their education and beyond.

Definitely check out James’ podcast where he talks about all aspects of esports.

Longplay also hosted a showcase highlighting indie game studios from Madison, Milwaukee, and Chicago. There was even an African-American owned studio from Milwaukee as part of the showcase. Here were the studios that were at the event:

whatnotory
Artifice Machines
Outer RIm Studios
Lunar Signals
Fordesoft
Bump Studios
flippfly
FT Gamers
Roger Meatball
GoodVibez
YES
Tier One
IGDA Chicago
Gear Learning
Schmidt Workshop
OneBit Adventure

Longplay in conjunction with I Play Games hosted four tournaments. One of the tournaments was Smash Bros competition between four non-profit youth programs — IndependenceFirst, ACLU, Teens Grow Greens and Islands of Brilliance. The other tournament was a partnership with Battlebox Studios, an African American owned game store on the north side.

Youth from ACLU, who won the non-profit Smash Bros. tournament

As you can see, video games are more than just fun. It can help with mental health, it can be used for music discovery, it can be used to bring diverse people together, and it can create careers.

In a recent report from Wallethub, Milwaukee was ranked 78 on a list of the top cities for gamers and that included a rank of 45 for the best gaming environment. Gaming can help Milwaukee grow into a tech hub if it embraces the possibilities that are out there instead of sitting on the sidelines. Cities like New Orleans and Atlanta offer tax credits to creative industries like gaming to attract talent. Not only that, gaming could give youth opportunities to learn about technology, science and art but more importantly, it can give youth the skills they need in an ever-changing world.

Space Apps is an international hackathon for coders, scientists, designers, storytellers, makers, builders, technologists and others in cities around the world, where teams engage with NASA’s free and open data to address real-world problems on Earth and in space. Space Apps 2018 included over 18,000 participants at more than 200 events in 75 countries. For the first time, Milwaukee is one of the host cities! Register today

NASA Space Apps Challenge Milwaukee

NASA is offering a wide variety of challenges for you to take on including:

For example, you can create a board game that allows players to customize the characteristics of a star and design planets that could reasonably exist in that star system. Or you can create a video game using NASA Earth data.

All are welcome in Space Apps. The common thread among Space Apps participants is that you are interested in space science and exploration, you are creative, and you want to solve problems. Over 18,000 people from 75 countries and in 200 cities around the world participated in the 2018 International Space Apps Challenge.

Space Apps builds connections. As a part of Space Apps, you are part of a global hackathon community that embraces collaboration across borders, sectors, and cultures to bring about paradigm-shifting innovation.

The Milwaukee event will take place this Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at No Studios. It is free to participate, but you must register via the link below.
