Introducing the Brewers' new bullpen suitcase
No, he wasn't changing sports. Dillard was simply looking for some Wisconsin-themed luggage to carry the team's wide array of essential bullpen items: candy, stretch bands, weighted balls, finger nail clippers, sunscreen and hand lotion.
Oh, and don't forget Gatorade Bars, which the relievers say came in handy during Sunday's 15-inning affair against the Twins.
Dillard enlisted teammate Jon Axford's help, and the pair hatched a plan. They bought a plain suitcase, then Axford reached out to fans via Twitter to have them submit stickers to add to the suitcase.
Fans mailed in a variety of stickers, many Wisconsin-themed, and one of them will receive the suitcase as a souvenir in the future.
