Brewers ‘Celebration Weekend’ edition starts with lots of stories and laughs

The Milwaukee Brewers’ turbulent past few days have taken a portion of the back seat at 3rd St. Market Hall on a Thursday afternoon.

The 1982 American League Championship team, one of the franchise’s most accomplished – and still respected – teams have come together to share some memories of that team ahead of “Celebration Weekend,” which kicks off Friday at American Family Field.

Join Hall of Famers Robin Yount, Paul Molitor, Ted Simmons, Rollie Fingers, Major League Baseball Commissioner Emeritus Bud Selig, and Hall of Fame announcer Bob Uecker at a casual conversation space in downtown Milwaukee’s restaurant and watering hole.

Aside from the ponytail, the 67-year-old Yount is now athletic, everyone looked pretty much the same (except for some gray hair) and were in good spirits as they relived the glory days of the only Brewers ever to advance to the World Championships.
