88 MILES PER HOUR! Brent Suter, Brewers go Back to the Future

MLB: Milwaukee Brewers-Media Day Rick Scuteri-USA TODAY Sports

The Brewers have made the Spring Training movie parody an annual tradition, thanks to classics like Wayne’s World, Dumb and Dumber and Mean Girls.

Now, with Summer Camp about to get underway and today marking the 35th anniversary of the release of Back to the Future, Brent Suter & Co. are back with another parody, and it may be their best one yet.

Suter, Hiura and the others filmed this before Spring Training was shut down in Arizona back in March. We probably should’ve known something was coming when Hiura put out a teaser video yesterday, saying it would be “heavy.”

There are plenty of good inside jokes in this one, from Suter’s reaction to 88mph to Pat Murphy telling Keston Hiura he reminds him of another “slacker” second baseman he used to coach (Craig Counsell, of course, played for Murphy at Notre Dame).
