Milwaukee Brewers Tickets: History of The Brew Crew
The franchise actually originated as the Seattle Pilots, but only played for one year before moving to Milwaukee in 1970 to become the Brewers.
After several mediocre seasons, the Brewers put together a team that began to win. In 1978, with a lineup that included Stormin' Gorman Thomas, Robin Yount, Jim Gantner, Ben Oglivie, and Cecil Cooper, the Brewers were able to win 93 games to finish above .500 for the first time in franchise history!

Following their first ever winning season, Gorman Thomas would set a single season franchise record 45 homeruns in 1979, and this would send the Brewers to a 95 win season and a second place finish in their division. They were definitely getting close!
Finally, in 1982 with shortstop Robin Yount winning the league's MVP award and pitcher Pete Vuckovich taking home the Cy Young award, the Brew Crew would win 95 games and capture their first ever American League East crown.
The Milwaukee Brewers would face the Angels for the Pennant in a five game series. After losing the first two games and facing elimination, the Brewers would win three straight and capture the American League Pennant for the first time in franchise history!

This Season's Power House
This season, the Brewers look to Prince Fielder to continue his power surge. Coming off a 32 HR and 83 RBI season last year, Fielder hopes to pick up where he left off.
Emerging star third baseman Casey McGehee, in only his second full year last season, drove in 104 runs, which led the team. Also adding power to the lineup is left fielder Ryan Braun, who had a huge season last year with 25 dingers and 103 RBIS while batting .304.
On the mound, the Brewers have one of the best in the league, with workhorse Zack Greinke who they picked up from the Royals, along with young Yovani Gallardo who led the team in ERA last season.
