Tom Haudricourt, Milwaukee Brewers and Major League Baseball beat reporter for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, pulls back the curtain to provide an up close-up look at the inner workings of the Milwaukee Brewers remarkable 2018 season.
When the Milwaukee Brewers embarked on a rebuilding program in 2015, the expectation was that it would take four or five years to return to competitiveness. That’s the way it went with other rebuilding clubs, but the Brewers somehow got it done in a mere three years. It certainly didn’t hurt when star outfielders Christian Yelich and Lorenzo Cain were added to the team, a sign that management was all in.
The 2018 Brewers caught fire at exactly the right time, falling just short of the franchise’s first World Series since 1982. But the ’18 Brewers captured the imagination of fans in Milwaukee and across Wisconsin, creating a buzz not heard for decades. Special Brew is an inside look at the decisions, the decision makers and the players who made it all happen, some who were expected to excel, others who seemingly came out of the blue.
Tom Haudricourt was voted Wisconsin Sports Writer of Year for 2011, 2012 and 2018 by the National Sports Media Association.
