The Sonic mascots just don't compare to the Klement's sausages.

This is what the Padres call a mascot race?

OnMilwaukee ventured to the Valley of the Sun with The Big 920 (WOKY) to cover a different side of Brewers Spring Training and find the fun, unique angles – on and off the field in Phoenix – that make the bucket-list trip such a memorable experience for Wisconsin fans. Play ball!

PHOENIX – A trip to Arizona for some fun in the sun with my beloved Brewers has been on my bucket list for a long, long time. And it has not disappointed. Brewers baseball in the desert – and, not to brag, but 80s and sunny doesn't suck, either – is nothing short of what I'd dreamed it would be. As some transplanted Wisconsinites said Wednesday, it's practically "paradise."

This trip has also made me realize how very good we have it in Milwaukee – especially when it comes to our sausage race at Miller Park.

Sure, the fact that we have Klement's sausages representing us is already awesome. But once you watch this sad display of a mascot race at Thursday's Milwaukee vs. San Diego game at the Padres' Peoria Sports Complex, you will understand why we really are so very lucky.

Watch and revel in just how good we have it in the Brew City – plus you can enjoy the live commentary from myself and sports editor Jimmy Carlton, too.

Not exactly the sausage race. #cactuscrew #brewers

I think that is a hotdog and a shake, but what is the yellow cylindrical object supposed to be?
