29 years in the making

26 Sep

Congrats to the 2011 Milwaukee Brewers baseball club for winning the NL Central Division after a 29 year gap since their last title.  In the age of big spending baseball, it’s very tough to cheer for the smallest market in professional baseball, but that’s what I get for growing up playing baseball in the small(er) city of Milwaukee, WI.  It just goes to show when the right owner comes along with the right general manager, success can happen to even the “Davids” of the world.

Once again, Ryan Braun provided the key hit in the most dramatic of situations.  He hit a 3-run homer in the bottom of the eighth inning against the Marlins, which was eerily similar to the same situation just 3 years earlier when he hit a bottom eight 2-run knock against the Cubs, helping the Brewers to the 2008 NL Wild Card.
