Happy Mother's Day!
Everyone has that one thing in their life that drew them to baseball. For a lot of people, it's their dad or grandpa. For me, it's my mom and my grandma. Mom was a big Brewers fan, growing up at the same time the Brewers of the early 80s were contenders. Somewhere in my parents' storage rooms, there's still a picture she drew in high school of Cecil Cooper. Her mom was a big fan of the Milwaukee Braves, and while she's always supported the Brewers, she still has that soft spot for old Braves memorabilia. I think I know where I get my interest in baseball from.
Mother's Day has been kind to the Brewers over the years:
A day after slugging their way past the Mets and securing a series win, the Milwaukee Brewers will look to go for the sweep this afternoon at Miller Park. Wily Peralta gets the start today, facing off against Jacob deGrom.
Let's set the over/under on how long it takes to show the Bill Hall home run at 3.5 innings.
First pitch is 1:10 p.m. CDT.
