Brewers’ Counsell, Part 1

July 14, 2017

I just happened to look at the Milwaukee Brewers’ “press notes” for a tilt vs the New York Mets on Sunday August 21, 2011.

Now I recall the day sitting in the “Brew Crew” dugout before the game, but not meeting any of the players including Ryan Braun, whom I hoped would say hi to a fellow Ryan, (Nadel).

It was a thrill that day to sit with Ralph Kiner and assist him with the answer as to the St. Louis Cardinals’ pitcher, against whom he got his first big league hit (I believe Johnny Beazley).

Looking now I see that “Milw” entered play that day with an 8 and a half, “one eighth” division lead and then player and current manager Craig Counsell, was celebrating his 41st birthday.

 

Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Cheese, Counsell— It Might be!
