Today In Brewer History: Welcome to the show, Teddy Higuera

Arguably the most dominant pitcher in franchise history debuted 28 years ago today.

His career was relatively brief, but if you're comparing peaks you can make a solid case for Teddy Higuera as the greatest Brewer pitcher of all time. His major league career started on this day in 1985 with a start against the White Sox.

Higuera didn't show much on this day, allowing four runs on seven hits over 5.2 innings as the Brewers lost 6-5. Two starts later he pitched a complete game shutout, though, and he went on to post a 3.90 ERA while working well over 200 innings. He finished second to Ozzie Guillen in the balloting for AL Rookie of the Year.

With help from the B-Ref Play Index, happy birthday today to:

Today is also the fourth anniversary of Dave Bush's near no-hitter against the Phillies in 2009, as he went 7.1 innings without allowing a hit. We covered that event in this space two years ago.
