Looking into the Past




Specifically 100 years into the past.

<spoiler_alert>

This year marks the 100th anniversary of the first time the Milwaukee Brewers won the pennant.

</spoiler_alert>

It may have been the American Association rather than the major leagues, but it was a big deal to the city and the fans at the time. The Brewers this year are planning one of their many bobbleheads to this championship team, as they will dress Corey Hart in a replica of the 1913 AA Brewers uniforms. (Cavemen weren't around in the early 20th century, but I digress.)

I have started a website/blog/research project that looks through the newspapers 100 years ago to the day and reviews the relevant Brewers and American Association news. If you have some time, head over to www.mrowgust.com and see what was in the morning editions 100 years ago today. My plans are to have a daily digest of the Milwaukee Brewers and then sprinkle in some Brewer biographies and features throughout the year. Today, for instance, Harry "Pep" Clark headed down to Owensboro, Ky for the start of spring training along with about 25 players and staff to prep for their home opener on April 10th.

I started the site on March 1st, so there are fewer than a dozen posts at this time, but there should be at least one new post each day. Come visit, and follow a second Brewers team this year. It's the only way to 100% guarantee you'll be following a championship team this year!

If you have any questions, comments, corrections, or contributions, feel free to post in the comments here, on the site, or e-mail me at mrowgust@gmail.com

Thanks and Go Brewers!
