Brewers fans who won a raffle used winnings to add to their family


Good morning, I'm A Martínez. At a baseball game, you'd be considered lucky if you caught a home run. A Milwaukee couple who attended the Brewers home opener last April wound up with a baby. Erin Murphy and her wife, Cassie, entered a raffle and won 18,000 bucks, which happened to be almost exactly what they needed for a round of in-vitro fertilization.
