Milwaukee Brewers Information
The Brewers is a baseball franchise based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, that plays in the Major League. The Brewers participate in the Central Division of the National League. The Brewers are affectionately called as the "The True Blue Brew Crew," "The Brew Crew," or even simply "The Crew." The baseball team is named “Brewers” in honor of the beer-brewing tradition celebrated by the people of Milwaukee.
The Milwaukee Brewers are currently hosted at Miller Park, a 43,000-seat stadium that can be found at 1 Brewers Way, Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Fans with Brewers tickets fondly call Miller Park as “the Keg.”
The Milwaukee Brewers can trace its roots back to 1969, from one of the expansion franchises awarded by the American League in 1968. Bud Selig, a local car dealer and avid baseball fan wanted a baseball franchise that can represent Milwaukee in the Major League, but failed to acquire an expansion team for the city. Selig then looked to acquire the financially troubled Seattle Pilots. The Pilots lasted only one season in Seattle before they were acquired by Selig’s group, and moved to Milwaukee in 1970.
The franchise’s transfer to Milwaukee has been done in such a short notice that there was no time to make new uniforms for the baseball team. The Brewers then kept their original colors of blue and gold, which they had when they played as the pilots, and personalized the uniform by simply replacing the Pilots logo with a Brewers logo. In its early years as a Milwaukee team, success on the field remained elusive from the Brewers, which lasted for most of the 70’s.
In 1972, Selig hired former Milwaukee Braves catcher Del Crandall as the manager of the Brewers. This was widely appreciated by Milwaukee fans, which became a factor for the elevation of Brewers tickets sales.
On the 2nd of November, 1974, the Brewers initiated a trade to bring back Milwaukee fan favorites Hank Aaron back to the Brewers. This was made possible by sending outfielder Dave May and pitcher Roger Alexander to Atlanta in exchange for Aaron.
Despite wide fan support, success for the Brewers would remain elusive until 1978, where the franchise posted its first winning season posting a 93-69 record, finishing behind the Yankees and the Red Sox. The Brewers enjoyed another successful season in 1979, with Cecil Cooper, Ben Oglivie, and Gorman Thomas leading them to a 95-66 finish, which was good enough for them to finish 2nd in the East Division of the American League. The Brewers then finished 3rd during the 1980 season, finishing the season with a record of 86-76. The 1981 season was shortened due to a players’ strike, and the Brewers finished that season with a record of 62-47, losing the Division title to the New York Yankees in a 2-3 series. The 1981 series is the first playoffs appearance of the Brewers franchise.
The 1982 season was a break-out year for the Brewers. The Brewers went on their first American League pennant race against the California Angels, whom they defeated in a 3-2 series. Milwaukee fans with Brewers tickets found themselves at the World Series, with the Brew Crew facing off against the St. Louis Cardinals. The Brewers took a commanding lead in the first game of the series, winning the first game 10-0. The Cardinals took games 2 and 3, and the Brewers bounced back in games 4 and 5. The St. Louis Cardinals eventually won the World Series by taking games 6 and 7.
After the successful run from 1978 to 1982, the Brewers momentum fizzled and the glory that they enjoyed seemed to be out of reach. The Brewers posted losing records from 1984 to 1986, usually finishing below the 5th place in their Division. Sparks of hope were brought to Brewers fans in 1987, with the hiring of manager Tom Trebelhorn, who led the Brewers to a 13-game winning streak in the start of the season. It was also during the 1987 season that a Brewer posted a no-hitter. The no-hitter was posted by pitcher Juan Nieves, who accomplished the feat on the 15th of April, 1987. Nieves is the second-youngest player in major league history to throw a no-hitter, and is the only Milwaukee Brewer to accomplish the feat. Nieves’ excellent pitching led the Brewers to a 7-0 win against the Baltimore Orioles.
The Brewers were placed in a new division in 1994, placing them on the Central Division of the National League.
The ownership of the Brewers franchise changed hands in 2004. On the 16th of January, 2004, Selig announced his desire to sell his baseball franchise, and deals with LA-based banker Mark Attanasio were completed in September, 2004. The sale of the franchise was completed on the 13th of January, 2005.
