Sad news for old-school Milwaukee Brewers fans today...former manager George Bamberger has passed away at age 58.(MilwaukeeBrewers.com) Cancer got him.
"Bambi," as we knew him up here, was a pitching coach with Baltimore for a long time before getting the Milwaukee managing gig, and morphing the ballclub into "Bambi's Bombers," the AL powerhouse of the late 70's...and paving the way for the AL Championship team of 1982. He came back for a later stint in the mid-80's, too.
This was actually said as a joke, but was never reported that way. I heard both him and his wife interviewed on the radio on Friday. They both said that he has no intention of selling the ball to put his kids through College.
