The recent passing of Roy “Doc” Halladay had me wondering about the number of times he pitched against the Milwaukee Brewers over the years. Despite appearing in 416 games (390 of those being starts), I knew some factors worked against Doc matching up against the Brew Crew very often. So I did a bit deeper investigation, leading to the following post:
Hallday broke into the bigs with Toronto as a September call-up in 1998. The Brewers had already moved to the National League in 1998, thereby making Toronto an occasional Interleague opponent. In fact, the Brewers wouldn’t play Toronto until 2005, which turned out to be the first time they’d face Halladay.
