Milwaukee Brewers were born out of the ashes of the Seattle Pilots
franchise. The Pilots were established in 1969 as an American League
expansion team and experienced constant financial difficulties its
first year. By the next year the club had moved to Milwaukee and been
renamed the Brewers. Amidst the turmoil the Brewers did not have their
first winning season until 1978.
One of the highlights of the Brewers' first few seasons in Milwaukee
were having Hank Aaron finish his career as a Brewer. Another
was the laying of the foundation for the Brewers future success;
players such as Gorman Thomas, Robin Yount, Rollie Fingers and Paul
Molitor were keys to the Brewers' best seasons.
The acquisition of key players paid off in 1982 when the Brewers won
the AL pennant. In the American League Championship Series, Milwaukee
fell behind 2-0 to the California Angels but rallied to win three games
in a row. In the World Series the Brewers lost to the St. Louis
Cardinals in seven games.
Overall, the 1980s were a great time for the Brewers as they produced
three MVPs (Rollie Fingers, and Robin Yount twice) and two Cy Young
Award winners (Rollie Fingers and Steve Vuckovich).
