Teddy Higuera – Last of the Milwaukee Brewers 20 Game Winners

The last pitcher to win 20 games in a season for the Milwaukee Brewers was left-hander Teddy Higuera back in 1986.  His 20th and final win came on September 25th that year.  Only two other pitchers have won 20 or more games in a season for the Brew Crew, and both came prior to Higuera’s fantastic year.  Mike Caldwell won 22 games in 1978 and Jim Colburn won 20 in 1973.  Here’s a short video of Higuera sealing his 20th win of 1986.

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!
