Longtime coach Ed Sedar announced his retirement on Monday morning. Sedar enjoyed thirty years with the Brewers.
Ed Sedar, who served 30 years in the Brewers organization, including 14 on the major league coaching staff, announced his retirement this morning. Speaking for the media that has gotten to know Sedar over all those years, he will be missed. All the best to Eddie.— Tom (@Haudricourt) October 25, 2021
Sedar, 60, spent this season as an advisor to the Brewers’ coaching staff, but was best known for his work at the infield corners. He was the major league team’s first base coach from 2007-2010 and third base coach from 2011-2020. Sedar became a fan favorite behind the third base line, windmilling runners home and dabbing in celebration after extra-base hits. Sedar was easy to like. He built a rapport with players and fans and famously was the first to invite Hank the Dog into the Brewers spring training clubhouse.
Sedar worked in the Brewers’ farm system from 1992-2007. Prior to his coaching career, Sedar spent eight seasons as an outfielder in the Chicago White Sox minor league system, reaching as high as Double-A.
Sedar lives in Fort Myers Beach, Florida with his wife, Marsha.
