Read About Ballparks And More In The Latest Brewers Book

Although there are good things, there are also some interesting errors in the book. The section on Bill’s Favorite Ballparks only ranks 6 ballparks, and not 10 like it said it would. While that alone was intriguing, one error that I deemed highly unacceptable was the caption which indicated the Milwaukee Brewers won the 1982 ALCS over the Baltimore Orioles. Anyone could take five seconds to go on Baseball Reference and see that the Milwaukee Brewers defeated the California Angels in the ALCS. The Orioles had already lost to the Brewers when they were fighting for the AL East crown. . I already knew this as a big Milwaukee Brewers fan, and it is amazing that a book was published with such a glaring error that could easily be verified to prove it was wrong. Other minor typos appear such as the incorrect spelling of a couple player names here and there, but I do believe that is typical of any book with hundreds of pages, so I will not hold that against them.

Overall, I feel like the book could have offered more information that was new and revealing. Too much of the content is just a simple retelling of events in Milwaukee Brewers’ history, or just simply a bio on Bill himself. I do have to say that this book is still a must for Milwaukee Brewers’ fans.  What Brewer fan would NOT want to relive some of the great moments that have happened? What Brewer fan would NOT want to find out more about the life and history of the longtime TV color analyst? There are some great stories in this book. In some cases, I feel as if I was right there while these events happened. Out of 5 Stars, I would give it a 3.5 Star Rating. Could the book have been improved? Sure, but it still is a very good addition to any collection!
