Story time with the 1982 Milwaukee Brewers

The Milwaukee Brewers are honoring the 1982 World Series team this weekend as they celebrate the 35th anniversary of the organizations only trip to the biggest stage the game has to offer. Part of that was a press conference on Friday morning featuring some of the stars of that team, including Robin Yount, Cecil Cooper, Rollie Fingers and Gorman Thomas.

Though many years have passed since that special summer run, the stories from that time period have not been forgotten. The foursome got into storytelling mode during the press conference and here are some of our favorites.
