I have been a fan of the Milwaukee Brewers since they were a AAA team playing at Borchert Field at 8th and Chambers. I remember one game when then owner Bill Veek was greeting the fans at their seats and he came over and sat next to me and we chatted about the Brewers. It was a thrill and to think the owner asked me for my opinions. I was only 8.
The American Association Brewers had their icons such as Tedd Gullic, Charley Grimm, Ken Keltner, Joe Just, Hal Peck, Heinz Becker, Casey Stengel, Jackie Price(and his pet snake) and many others.
The Brewers then transformed to the Braves at County Stadium led by such greats as Warren Spahn, Lew Burdette, Johnny Logan, Eddie Mathews and Hank Aaron.
The Braves moved to Atlanta and after a period of no baseball a new franchise was born, the Milwaukee Pilots, to become the new Milwaukee Brewers playing in the American League and now the National League.
Historically player trades have been made over the years, some of which led to championships.
For example, the Braves traded for Hall of Famer second baseman, Red Schoendinst. The Brewers acquired Hall of Fame pitchers, Don Sutton and Rollie Fingers.
Our present Brewers have traded for C.C. Sabathia and Ray Durham.
Time will only tell but during that time Brewer Fever is at a high pitch and fan support is needed.
The Brewer chances are better than good, thanks to a great owner and many talented players.
I will be at one of the Cub games with an old friend who is from Chicago and a Cub fan. What's better ?
