Description


Most Brewers fans have enjoyed a beer and a brat at Miller Park, proudly sported a hat with the iconic ball-in-glove logo, and listened to Bob Uecker call a game. Names like Pete Yuckovich and Gorman Thomas are just as familiar as Robin Yount and Paul Molitor. But even the most die-hard fans don't know everything about their beloved Brewers. In 100 Things Brewers Fans Should Know & Do Before They Die, Tom Haudricourt has assembled the facts, traditions, and achievements sure to educate and entertain true fans. Do you know which player regularly stopped by tailgates before games? Which pitcher worked as a garbageman before joining the Brewers? And why was Uecker's first scouting report covered in mashed potatoes and gravy? All of the key figures and events are here: Bud Selig's purchase of the Seattle Pilots in 1970; Harvey's Wallbangers of the early 1980s; the 2011 NL Central title, and even the team's recent development under manager Craig Counsell.
