The Milwaukee Brewers played in the American League East division from 1972-93. In 2017, the Brewers will play many of their old foes from the East in Interleague matchups. Baltimore, Boston, Toronto, and the New York Yankees are all on the schedule this season. To celebrate the glory days of the old AL East, I’ve created a “classic opponents” series of blog posts.
Milwaukee welcomes Baltimore to Miller Park this afternoon to kick off a three game series. Back on June 3, 1980, Moose Haas of the Brewers came home to Baltimore to try to pick up his first win in front of family and friends. Haas helped his team win the Baltimore City Sandlot Championship held at Memorial Stadium when he was 16 years old. This time he’d be facing the likes of Al Bumbry, Eddie Murray, and his personal nemesis, Lee May.
