DoU Giveaway: New Brewers Book | Disciples of Uecker

Disciples of Uecker

We'd like to go to the Playoffs, that would be cool.

Tom Haudricourt is best known for serving as the primary Brewers beat writer for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, but he just published a new book for Brewers fans — 100 Things Brewers Fans Should Know & Do Before They Die.

The book also contains a foreward by former Brewers second baseman Jim Gantner.

I’m excited to say we’re fortunate enough to have three copies to offer DoU readers. The details of the Giveaway Contest will be outlined below, but before we get to that, here’s a more in-depth preview of what you could win:

Most Brewers fans have attended games at Miller Park, seen highlights of a young Robin Yount, and have heard the story of Easter Sunday in 1987. But only real fans know the ingredients to the Secret Sauce, who designed the ingenious “ball-in-glove” logo or which Brewer is the only player in MLB history to hit two grand slams on Opening Day.

100 Things Brewers Fans Should Know & Do Before They Die by Tom Haudricourt reveals the most critical moments and important facts about past and present players, coaches, and teams that are part of the storied history that is Brewers baseball. Scattered throughout the pages, you’ll find pep talks, records, and Brewers lore to test your knowledge, including:

    • The origins of Bob Uecker’s famous homerun call
    • The roller-coaster ride that was “Team Streak”
    • The recently departed but forever memorable Tony Plush
    • The back story of the infamous “Sweep Suits”

Whether you’re a die-hard fan from the days of Harvey Kuehn and Paul Molitor or a new supporter of Ron Roenicke and Ryan Braun, this book contains everything Brewers fans should know, see and do in their lifetime. If you bleed navy, gold and white, then 100 Things Brewers Fans is for you. It offers the chance to be certain you are knowledgeable about the most important facts about the team, the traditions, and what being a Brewers fan is all about.

Again, we have three copies of the book to give away. To be one of the three people who wins the Giveaway Contest, you must answer three questions (plus a bonus question) about tonight’s game against the Pittsburgh Pirates. First pitch will be at 6:05pm CT, and it will be Yovani Gallardo squaring off against left-hander Wandy Rodriguez.

Here are the three questions:

(1) How many combined hits will the Brewers and Pirates have this evening?

(2) How many combined runs?

(3) How many combined errors?

(Tie Breaker) Which Brewers player will hit the first home run?

Each answer for questions #1-3 will be given a differential score (how many hits/runs/errors were you off?) and those three differential scores will be added together. The three individuals with the lowest differential scores from tonight’s game will be awarded a book.

Leave your answers in the comments section. Please be sure to leave a legitimate email address, as that’s how I will contact you after the contest finishes this evening.

Good luck!
