Milwaukee Brewers Research – The Witches of County Stadium
On this date in Milwaukee Brewers history, April 22, 1970, something quite out of the ordinary happened – on the field, but not during a game. The brand new Wisconsin team was already slumping and in the midst of a seven game losing streak. The team was about to suffer their third loss in a series in California against the Angels. Their record stood at 3-10, and critics were already counting the team out of playoff contention. The team was about to fly across the country to play the Red Sox in Boston on their off day. Before they left California, something different was brewing back at County Stadium –literally.
