This Day in Milwaukee Brewers History – .500 Again!
An ancient proverb states that “a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” Even the most longest and difficult of ventures have a starting point.
For the Milwaukee Brewers, reaching the playoffs in 2008/2011 and playing contending baseball in 2017 may appear to be difficult ventures. Yet, these successes do have a starting point – Friday, September 30, 2005. The single step the Brewers took that day was posting a 6-5 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates. Might seem like just another game these days, but it assured Milwaukee would enjoy its first .500 or better season since 1992.
