Milwaukee Brewers fans are entering new territory on Saturday.
The Brewers will be entering postseason play for just the fourth time in team history when it opens up divisional round play. However, this will be the first time since 1982 that they could legitimately be considered a World Series title contender.
After all, the Brewers were a combined 3-9 against those teams during the 2008 regular season.
It’s a different story this year and the Brewers fans understand that this is an important season in the evolution of their team.
The Brewers have played 21 post season games in their 42 year history with a record of 9-12.
The only series they’ve ever won was in 1982 when they defeated the California Angels 3-2 in a five game series. They faced the Cardinals in the World Series that year, ultimately losing the series in seven games.
The franchise doesn’t have a long history of winning postseason games like the Yankees or Phillies, but nevertheless they do have several key moments within their short postseason runs.
In that spirit, let’s take a look at the 5 Most Important Postseason Hits in Milwaukee Brewers History. Sure, it’s a little like naming the top five songs in the catalog of Right Said Fred, but I think it should be fun nonetheless.
