Wisconsin men's basketball team briefly took over Miller Park Friday night, as it was honored for its Final Four run before the Milwaukee Brewers hosted the New York Yankees.
Head coach Bo Ryan was joined by the rest of the team to deliver the first pitch to some Brewers players. Sam Dekker told the media before the game he wanted to impress the crowd with his fastball. Can we get any confirmation of the fireball on the radar?
We do have confirmation that Josh Gasser and Zak Showalter chatted with Derek Jeter.

Highlight of the night: @ZShowbball333 asking Derek Jeter, "how's Minka Kelly?" Jeter replies, "Idk what you're talking about..."— Zach Bohannon (@ZBohannon) May 10, 2014
Zach Bohannon also continued his stellar selfie game, though not with any members of the Crew. It should be no surprise; he's an Iowa native. Nonetheless, a pic with a future Hall-of-Famer, a Cy Young Award winner and a World Series-winning manager is an opportunity nobody can pass up.

UW's play-by-plan man Matt Lepay also got in on the fun, joining Wisconsin broadcasting legends Bob Uecker, Wayne Larrivee and Brian Anderson. Also a treat for Lepay: he called the game on Fox Sports Wisconsin, relaying Badgers action from a different realm. Uecker also got his chance to chat with the team.
Very cool seeing our very own @MattLepay on air for the @Brewers. pic.twitter.com/BJsnC0NdcQ— Wisconsin Basketball (@BadgerMBB) May 10, 2014
No @Brewers trip would be complete without a visit from Bob Uecker. @samdek1 pic.twitter.com/gOLUcZt2UW— Wisconsin Basketball (@BadgerMBB) May 10, 2014
