MILWAUKEE -- To kick off their annual winter fan fest, the Milwaukee Brewers revealed the winner of the Design a YOUniform contest. Fans were asked to submit their ideas for an alternate Brewers on-field uniform in the fall. Three finalists were announced recently and all three were in attendance Sunday. The design based around the barrel man logo on the hat designed by Ben Peters of Richfield, Minn. was announced as the winner and immediately went on sale at the team store at Brewers On Deck and at the Brewers Team Store at Miller Park. The Brewers will wear the uniform for their spring training game against the Chicago Cubs on March 22 and again on March 30 in an exhibition game at Miller Park. Peters will receive a trip to spring training including airfare for two, tickets to the game and 1,500 for hotel and transportation - to see his creation in action. In addition, Peters will get to pick a game-worn jersey and hat from the player of his choice, plus receiving 10 t-shirts and hats of his design. Nearly 700 entries were submitted for the contest, an overwhelming response. "The fans response to this promotion was tremendous, both in the number of entries received and the votes during the judging of the finalists," Brewers Chief Operating Officer Rick Schlesinger said. "It was difficult to select a winner as the three finalist entries all had very solid support." Follow Andrew Gruman on Twitter.
