World Series Wisconsin

Remember Eddie Mathews‘ dramatic 10th-inning homer from game four of the 1957 World Series, or Paul Molitor’s record-setting five hits in the opener of the 1982 World Series? Relive the excitement of the zenith years of Milwaukee’s champion baseball teams — the Braves and the Brewers — in the new exhibition, World Series Wisconsin, available for view July 17 through December 2, 2007 at the Wisconsin Historical Museum. Included are dozens of authentic, game-used objects — jerseys, jackets, caps, helmets, bats, balls, gloves, spikes, and more — many of them from the peak seasons of 1957 and 1982, and many actually worn and used by such baseball greats as true homerun champion (IMO) Hank Aaron, Eddie Mathews, Red Schoendienst, and Warren Spahn of the Braves, and Rollie Fingers, Paul Molitor, and one of my personal favorites, Robin Yount of the Brewers. Original artifacts from Milwaukee County Stadium, fan souvenirs, historical photographs, and original radio broadcast clips and television footage also help bring the excitement of these victory seasons to life. It is a very cool collection and I was pleased to get the opportunity to make it apart of my day. If you are in the area and like baseball, you’ll dig it. Unless perhaps you were are a fan of the 1957 New York Yankees, who after calling the 1957 Milwaukee Braves “BUSH LEAGUE” lost to that very same team to lose the World Series.
