It’s the one and only D-O-double G in the M-K-E.

A packed crowd at American Family Field was treated to a surprise first pitch Saturday afternoon prior to the Milwaukee Brewers taking on the Cincinnati Reds as legendary hip hop and entertainment industry mogul Snoop Dogg took the mound donning a cream Brewers jersey.

Snoop, who is in town for a concert Saturday night as part of the Potowatomi Casino’s Amplified Series, took the mound to a standing ovation and threw a strike to Brewers coach Quintin Berry.

The 52-year-old artist then walked up the Brewers tunnel and into the service level of American Family Field, where he spoke with Brewers broadcaster Bob Uecker via FaceTime.

He also met with the team in the clubhouse prior to the game for photos and autographs, including inking pitcher Wade Miley’s Skechers, and later joined the Brewers’ TV broadcast booth, where he was astonished by the defensive play of Reds shorstop Elly De La Cruz.
