Meet the Disciples of Uecker family!
Fueled by the the wealth of insider information obtained during a marketing internship with the Brewers, Steve Altstadt has been blogging about the Crew since 2007. He is a Ben Sheets and Rickie Weeks apologist, and he intentionally purchased and framed the lineup card of the game that got Ned Yost fired. Outside of Brewers baseball, Steve enjoys coaching, winning at ping pong, and attending concerts and plays.
