Milwaukee Brewers History – Saturday Night Massacre
“Perhaps the best thing (Bud) Selig could do to improve things is get rid of General Manager Jim Baumer and Manager Alex Grammas.” – columnist Dennis Punzel, November 4, 1977.
This week in Milwaukee Brewers history (November 19, 1977), Selig did just that. He fired Grammas and Al Widmar as director of player development, plus accepted Baumer’s resignation. This front office housecleaning became known as the “Saturday Night Massacre.”
