It’s Brewers weekend in Zebulon, North Carolina, home of the High-A Carolina Mudcats. The Mudcats will play all of their games this weekend wearing jerseys inspired by the classic powder blue Milwaukee uniforms worn by the likes of Rollie Fingers, Robin Yount, and Paul Molitor in the 1970s and 1980s.
The themed caps will feature the Mudcats logo—which is typically in red, black, and gray—in the blue and yellow of the Brewers old MB glove logo.
The games will feature appearances by mascot Bernie the Brewer as well as Milwaukee-themed giveaways throughout the weekend. The Mudcats’ Brewers-themed jerseys will be auctioned off to benefit Children’s Miracle Network after the Sunday afternoon game.
