Milwaukee Brewers

 
Milwaukee Brewers are a professional baseball team and is located at Milwaukee in Wisconsin.  They play under the Central Division of the National League under the Major League Baseball. The team was initially known as ‘Seattle Pilots’. They played a match with this name for a season until they were acquired by the court for becoming bankrupt in 1969.
 
History of the Milwaukee Brewers
 
In the year 1982, the Milwaukee Brewers won the American League East Division title and the American League Pennant. This catapulted them to their maiden appearance in the World Series. However, they could not capitalize on the occasion and lost to the St. Louis Cardinals by 4 games to 3. The initial years of Milwaukee, that is from 1970 to 1977 were strung with disappointments and stitched with defeats. They finished the 1970 season with 65-97. Their miseries drudged on until 1978. During this period, they could not win a single match.
 
But, as it is said that every cloud has a silver lining, so did fortune favor the Milwaukee Brewers at last. The years from 1978 to 1983 were known as the glorious days of the team. In 1982, they won the America League Pennant and defeated the California Angels in the American League Championship Series in the same year.
 
The years between 1984 and 1993 brought an amalgamation of performance and rankings for the team. Incidentally, they featured both at the top and low position of rankings in the charts. At present, the period from 2004 until date is known as the Attanasio Era.
 
 
 
 
Milwaukee Brewers in recent past
 
In 2007, the Milwaukee Brewers again returned to the center stage by recording a few important wins. They finished the season with 83-79 and were only 2 games behind Chicago. It was also significant because Prince Fielder became the first baseman and the youngest player for Milwaukee Brewers to have reached the 50 home run mark and that too, in a single season.
 
In 2008, they returned to postseason playing their first game in 26 years. They started the league losing to the NDLS by 3-1 in the first match. But unfortunately, they lost some of their important players like Guillermo Mota, Ray Durham, Salomon Torres, Brian Shouse and Russell Branyan among others.
