First Matt Lepay, now the men's basketball team. After bringing in UW's play-by-play man to their Fox Sports Wisconsin broadcasts, the Milwaukee Brewers will host the Badgers' Final Four team for the May 9 game vs. the New York Yankees at Miller Park.
Head coach Bo Ryan will lead the team onto the field for pre-game recognition and the ceremonial first pitch at approximately 6:50 p.m. CT. The game's first pitch is scheduled for 7:10 p.m. The University of Wisconsin Marching Band will also perform the National Anthem and outside the Home Plate Gate before the game.
"On behalf of the Milwaukee Brewers, we congratulate the Badgers men's basketball team for a terrific season and an exciting trip to the Final Four," Brewers general manger Doug Melvin said in a release. "Bo Ryan and his team provided great excitement throughout Wisconsin and they represented our state extraordinarily well."
The Badgers finished the season 30-8 after advancing to the program's first Final Four since 2000, and its third all-time. The 30-win season was also the third in school history.

"We'd like to thank the Brewers for inviting us out to Miller Park," Ryan said. "It will be an honor to be on the field and participate in the pregame festivities. I'm going to have to warm up the old shortstop arm, those Major League Baseball fields are a bit bigger than ones I grew up on. But it will be a fun night."
Tickets for the game are still available at the Miller Park Box Office, Brewers.com or by calling (414) 902-4000 or 1-800-933-7890.
