All-Brewers Team: Utility Guys

2 of 11

OF – Ben Oglivie

This is a guy who really hit his stride once he came to Milwaukee.  Ben kicked tires with the Red Sox and the Tigers before finally getting a chance to play everyday in Milwaukee.  To say he capitalized on that opportunity, would be a gross understatement.  The original “Big Ben” went crazy in County Stadium.  His 41 HR outburst in 1980 got him some hardware: an All-Star appearance and the Silver Slugger Award.  Ben spent 9 seasons in Milwaukee, during that time he accumulated over 1100 hits, 175 HR’s, 685 RBI’s, and a .277 BA.  Lest we forget about his glove!!  In his 16 year MLB career he posted a stunning .980 fielding percentage.  He averaged less than 5 errors per season for his entire career.
