Don't you love Front Row Amy?

You've seen her if you watch Milwaukee Brewers games.
She says she loves the Brewers and swears she never set out to be noticed....

Last month, a guy dressed like Amy with a black wig, stuffed-in breasts and cleavage lines painted on his chest sat in her seat at one of the games she skipped....

This is the second year Amy has owned this single seat for the entire 81-game home season (a $5,670 expense). She doesn't know most of the people sitting around her and rarely interacts with them. She's not at the game to chat. Her focus is on the field...
The Brewers organization is well aware of her but has not orchestrated her rise to popularity. As far as I can tell, Amy is not a Go Daddy girl or any other corporate creation....

I went to her Facebook page and my son has "liked" her! Haha

"Last month, a guy dressed like Amy with a black wig, stuffed-in breasts and cleavage lines painted on his chest sat in her seat at one of the games she skipped...."

I'm guessing his "breasts" are almost as real as hers.

CG: her statistics are real and believable. Good for her!

If they're real, they're spectacular.

Amy reminds me of the Secret Scorer story from the Bill James Historical Baseball Abstract. From 1882 to 1891, Eliza Williams was the official scorer for the Chicago team. Its President, Albert Spaulding had noticed her scoring every game she attended, and hired her to be the official scorer, though only he knew of her responsibilities.

I'm totally pissed that the Mets traded Carlos Gomez. Milwaukee's gain.

The only front row woman that I notice at the home games, is the black woman with the big white guy to her left. The miss one of two games in a year. That's all. You'll see them when the camera is on a right handed batter approaching the batters box.

They miss one or two...

That news article was quintessentially Wisconsin. It perfectly captured the "we're not sure this is really real, really" attitude towards human interest stories I remember from my youth.

"Now, you're sure you're not a corporate shill? Not that that's bad, but I don't want to mislead the public."

You mean that's Hatman?

The Red Sox have nothing as interesting. We do have 'Drinks', who sits behind home plate, and from the outfield camera he looks like Robert Redford. One day when Redford was in town Drinks gave him his seat, and hardly anyone noticed...

How about a trade- Red Sox give up Drinks, a lovely, quality minor league fan from Pawtucket, and a fan to be named later for Front Row Amy?

I went to college with "Front Row Andy" - very, very guy and a talented actor. His facebook page picture is the snapshot of "fan of the game" that he won when he went.

She might not have set out to be noticed, and she seems like a nice lady, but if you look at her Facebook page, you'll see that she has absolutely no problem BEING noticed.

And if those are real, I'm the Queen of England.

I love that HD has made it possible to see sports crowds so clearly. And now people in the stands have learned that they're so visible and sometimes make it fun - especially in baseball. One night at a Ranger's game a boy of about 12 would make this horrible face when the camera shot was in his direction. He finally forgot one time and then laughed. I love it.

I DO love Amy's front row!

It's funny that you can be a fan of a fan. Wonder what Plato would say.
