The Thrill Banger Since: 16.4.02 From: Green Bay, WI Since last post: 918 days Last activity: 273 days # 1 Posted on 7.4.04 0751.41 | Instant Rating: 4.25 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. The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel has a nice article on Bamberger, too. One quote: "Without George Bamberger, I would not have had a career. The battery on my cell phone is going to die before I run out of George Bamberger stories." --Gorman Thomas, former Brewers slugger RIP, Bambi. We'll miss you. Star wipe, and...we're out.

I sure hope there's a moment of silence for him this Friday. RIP Bambi. [It's where I sit]
D'oh! And I was looking forward to seeing him when the Cubs visited the Skydome next weekend. I'm guessing he'll be suspended over that time period.
