35 Years Ago: Milwaukee Brewers and the 1981 Baseball Strike

Much has been written and broadcast about the 1982 Milwaukee Brewers team that lost to the St. Louis Cardinals in the World Series. To date this has been the only World Series in franchise history, so naturally there is a lot of nostalgia associated with that particular team. However, the 1981 team had great potential to make a run to the World Series, but a players strike interrupted that opportunity. This week to coincide with the 35th anniversary of the walkout on June 12, I’m going to take a look at the 1981 Brewers team and a season that doesn’t get talked about as much as the 1982 campaign.

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!
