They say that distance makes the heart grow fonder. Never has such a cliché been more true. It’s strange. In 2020, I was still able to watch the Brewers. Was still able to have a beer. I was also able to grill out and have a brat or two. But there’s just absolutely nothing like tailgating outside the ball park before a game. An experience I’m longing to return to in 2021. The second the car is guided into it’s spot and parked, it’s as if a challenge on Survivor has started. Everyone floods out of the car as the trunk,…

2020 was a season of woes for the Brewers. A year lacking in runs was joined by a less than stellar performance at the second base position. Keston Hiura came into the league with a reputation of being an above average hitter with below average defensive skills. Hiura exceeded expectations in his 2019 rookie year by sporting a .303 batting average, 19 homers, and a .938 OPS. However, Keston’s sophomore year didn’t go quite as well. While leading the Crew with 13 home runs, he also lead the NL with 85 strike outs in 59 games while batting .212. The…
