This Week in Milwaukee Brewers History – Explosion Rocks Spring Training

February 27 marks the 30th anniversary of a dark day in Milwaukee Brewers history.  An explosion in the center of their spring training complex in Chandler, Arizona, injured nine people.  It happened within the coaches’ room at the center of the complex.

A portion of the blog post here previously may be published as content in my Milwaukee Brewers historical book. For this reason the post has been taken down. This page remains in place so links posted to here on various social media sites remain active.

Details on the book publisher and a release date will be posted here in 2017. Thank you for your patience!
