Celebrate National Book Lover’s Day with Haudricourt’s “100 Things Brewers Fans Should Know & Do Before They Die”
Today is National Book Lover’s Day, so I thought I’d remind you of a great Brewers book that you can pick up to help you celebrate.
Earlier this season, I reviewed a new book about the Milwaukee Brewers entitled, “100 Things Brewers Fans Should Know & Do Before They Die.” The book was written by Tom Haudricourt of The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, with a foreword by Jim Gantner.
Haudricourt, who has covered the Milwaukee Brewers and baseball for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel (and Milwaukee Sentinel) since 1985, has witnessed many of these items firsthand. This is his third book about the team (he is also the author of Brewers Essential and Where Have You Gone ’82 Brewers?) and “100 Things Brewers Fans Should Know & Do Before They Die” covers everything from Brewers Baseball arriving in Milwaukee (1970) through recent triumphs such as the 2011 NLCS appearance.
You can read the full review here. The book is currently available for sale in the Brewers Team Store by Majestic and online at brewers.com. You can also follow us on Twitter for your chance to win a copy today!
Once you’re done, I’d be curious to know what you think. Did Tom leave anything out? Let me know in the comments field below.
