With no current Milwaukee Brewers games to show, Fox Sports Wisconsin has been doing what a lot of other networks who would otherwise be showing games every night are doing — airing memorable games from years past that some fans may only have hazy memories of (or may have been too young to ever see before).
In April, that meant a lot of showing the no-hitter that Bill Schroeder caught, the good games from the 1982 World Series, the 1982 ALCS, the NL 2011 Central division clincher, and Josh Hader’s record-setting appearance against the Cincinnati Reds.
With April winding down and current baseball still at least a month or two away, FS Wisconsin is releasing its schedule for the next month, and there are some exciting additions that haven’t been widely available before.
FOX Sports Wisconsin takes you back in time with more #BrewersClassics in May: https://t.co/83kqJFnhxI— FOX Sports Wisconsin (@fswisconsin) April 29, 2020
The schedule includes:
- May 2nd: The 1975 All-Star Game at County Stadium
- May 4th: Ben Sheets’ record-setting 18-strikeout game against the Atlanta Braves
- May 6th: CC Sabathia’s no-hitter against Pittsbugh (mistakenly labeled as a one-hitter in FS Wisconsin’s schedule)
- May 8th: Ryan Braun’s 8th inning home run against the Cubs to help clinch the 2008 Wildcard
- May 10th: Rickie Weeks and Prince Fielder both hitting their first career home runs in the same game (including the line Daron Sutton definitely practiced beforehand)
- May 12th: 2011 NLDS Game 5
- May 14th: Brewers beat the Orioles to win the 1982 AL East
- May 16th: Brewers sweep the Cardinals in St. Louis to clinch a 2018 playoff berth
The schedule for the second half of May will be announced later in the month.
