A Milwaukee couple that had gone through fertility treatments for more then a year with no luck can thank the Milkwaukee Brewers for their new baby.
In April 2022, Cassie and Erin Murphy bought a 50/50 raffle ticket at a Milwaukee Brewers game and became the lucky winners of $18,000. That amount was almost to the dollar what they needed for just one more IVF treatment and chance to have the baby they want so badly. And it worked.
After one more round of in vitro fertilization, they were pregnant by June. On Feb. 22, Cassie and Erin welcomed Foster Murphy to the world. The new parents brought their one-month-old to Monday's opening night game.
"I don't think we thought that baseball would be such a part of our fertility pregnancy journey, but it's been a really welcomed community," Erin said.
"I think we will have an eternal connection to the Brewers, that's for sure," Cassie said.
The Brewers Community Foundation hosts the 50/50 drawing during each home game.
Monday's opening day winner walked away with more than $35,000.
