MILWAUKEE, WI - Delta Dental of Wisconsin is teaming up with the Boys & Girls Clubs to sponsor stolen bases on the Brewers Radio Network. For every Brewers stolen base, Delta Dental will “bag” another donation for over 143,000 club kids across Wisconsin. It also means the announcers -- including Mr. Baseball himself, Bob Uecker -- will mention support to the Boys & Girls Clubs during every game.

"We're proud to team up with Delta Dental to support our club kids across 89 sites in Wisconsin," said Andy Gussert, State Director of the Wisconsin Boys and Girls Club. "We're also rooting for the team to be at the top of the league again in stolen bases." The Milwaukee Brewers ranked first across all major league baseball in 2016, and second in 2017 for stolen bases.

"Delta Dental's donation funds the partial scholarship of membership fees for 40 youth in each club every year, so kids across the state can participate in afterschool programs. Delta Dental helps us achieve our mission for the kids who need us most."
