    Milwaukee Brewers History

    After a few years of becoming a temporary home for the Braves (1953-1965), the city finally had a team in the major league, thanks to the failed experiment of the Seattle Pilots. While the Pilots entered the league in 1969, they endured a difficult season on and off the field giving the indication that the franchise wasn’t viable in their home city and a move was on the cards.  

    The Pilots then relocated to Milwaukee and after four years of not having a team in the major league, the city finally had one. By the next year, they finally made it their own franchise as they removed the Pilots from the name as they became known as the Milwaukee Brewers in 1970. 

    The Brewers would want to forget their next four years as frankly, they didn’t endure winning seasons as the highest they placed throughout that time was fifth place which they finished in 1973 and 1974. 

    Despite the mediocrity that crippled the Brewers, by 1974 they did introduce future Hall of Famer Robin Yount which provided a mini spark and hope for a rebuild, while George Scott (who the Brewers signed in 1972 as well as winning the golden glove that year) won the next two golden gloves. 

    It looked as though the Brewers fortunes finally changed in the 1978 season, where they introduced the league to Paul Molitor who would later be in the Baseball Hall of Fame. 

    The introduction of Molitor must have been a spark for the team which already included Yount as they finished in their highest position since coming into the league (which includes Seattle Pilots) as they finished third with 93 wins. 

    They managed to improve a year later by adding two more wins to their tally and they finished second in the American League East, it also kicked off a fantastic two years.

    The Brewers were on the verge of something special but still finished third in 1980 and 1981 (although the 81 season was split in half due to a strike and finished the first half in first place and the second half in third). 

    Given the complexities of the split season, the Brewers finally made it to their maiden postseason and they met the New York Yankees in the American League Division Series (ALDS), but lost the series. 

    The following season everything came to fruition (except for the end result) as, after many years of slowly climbing up the division, the Brewers finally found themselves on top of the American League East Division, by winning 95 games. 

    The Brewers got their maiden postseason win when they met the Los Angeles Angels in the American League Championship Series (ALCS) defeating them 3-2 in the series and they clinched their first-ever American League pennant. 

    The Brewers put up a fight in the World Series where they met the St Louis Cardinals, and they won the opening game before the Cardinals hit back in game 2. The Brewers ended up winning the next two games to give them a 3-2 lead heading into game 6, but the Cardinals proved to be too strong over the last two games of the series as they became 4-3 winners. 

    The Brewers couldn’t back up their World Series defeat with another showing in the postseason as a year after they slid down to fifth. In fact, they had to wait another 26 years before they could make it again. 

    Throughout that long drought, Yount proved to be worthwhile as he was the 1982 MVP, as well as winning the golden glove award and the silver slugger award. He also repeated the efforts in 1989 as he won the silver slugger award and was crowned the MVP for the second time. 

    Molitor also proved to be why the Brewers invested heavily in him as he won the silver slugger award in 1987 and 1988. Throughout that time Dave Parker who the Brewers signed for the 1990 season also won the silver slugger award and two years later Pat Listach won the American League Rookie of the Year award. 

    By 1998, following the introduction of the Arizona Diamondbacks, the Brewers left the American League to join the National League. After 26 years in the wilderness, the Brewers finally broke their drought when they met the Philadelphia Phillies in the 2008 NLDS, but lost the series 3-1. 

    They returned in 2011, after finishing first in the National League Central, and managed to go one better as they fought off the Diamondbacks in the NLDS claiming their first postseason victory since 1982, but fell to the St Louis Cardinals in the NLCS. 

    The Brewers had to wait a further six years before the next showing, but it would prove to be worth the wait as the Brewers have made the postseason in all of their last three seasons, with 2018 arguably their best season as they made it to the NLCS (albeit a defeat to the LA Dodgers). 

    The Brewers have since then backed it up with back-to-back NLCS, but haven’t been able to advance. Their most recent showing was an NLCS defeat to the LA Dodgers in the 2020 season.
