  1. Great memories! Glad you post the Brewers from the past. I watched the game and will never forget it! Unfortunately the Crew would lose the series, but they did make it that far!

    • Scott- I’m happy to hear that you enjoyed that. I find Molitor to be one of the most underrated stars from my generation – his numbers are unreal, and on par with the biggest starts from his era. Gotta Love ‘Pauly Molly’!!!

  2. That game was so fun to watch. Molitor was definitely one of the best players of his era. If he had not been injured so much as a Brewer his numbers would have been even more impressive.

  3. However, Willie McGee, was just too much for the Brew Crew to handle….
