Brewers celebrate 50 years

What left many people in Seattle 50 years ago thinking it was an April Fool's joke changed the course of Milwaukee sports forever.

 

It was 50 years ago Wednesday that a Milwaukee business group led by future MLB commissioner Bud Selig bought the bankrupt Seattle Pilots and brought baseball back to life in Wisconsin under the Brewers moniker. Six days later, baseball officially returned to Milwaukee in 12-0 loss to the California Angels. 

 

The team will be releasing a book later this year to commemorate the anniversary. The season will also feature a number of promotions around the milestone if and when the season gets underway.
