Found July 29, 2013 on Fox Sports Wisconsin:
GREENVILLE, Miss. (AP) -- George "Boomer" Scott, a three-time All-Star first baseman during the 1960s and 1970s who slugged 271 career homers, has died. He was 69. Washington County coroner Methel Johnson confirmed Scott died on Sunday in Greenville. Scott spent most of his 14-year career with the Boston Red Sox and Milwaukee Brewers. He hit 27 homers during his rookie season with the Red Sox in 1966 and had his best year with the Brewers in 1975, when he hit 36 homers and had 109 RBI. Scott was a big man, listed at 6-foot-2 and over 200 pounds in his playing days, but surprising nimble in the field. He won eight Gold Gloves, playing primarily first base.

Young outfielders getting an opportunity with Brewers

If all had gone according to plan for the Milwaukee Brewers this season, Logan Schafer would be a fourth outfielder fighting to stay ready on the bench, while Caleb Gindl and Khris Davis would be playing in Triple-A.

Brewers don't intend to trade Kyle Lohse, Yovani Gallardo, Nori Aoki

I just checked in with Brewers general manager Doug Melvin who is not in Chicago preparing for today's split doubleheader with the Cubs. Instead he's at Miller Park in the trade "war room" where things seem very quiet leading up to the Wednesday 3 p.m. non-waiver deadline. Because right-hander Kyle Lohse has been pitching so well for so long I asked Melvin if he...

Tyler Thornburg threw the ball well enough to earn another start in the near future. Unfortunately, the Milwaukee Brewers likely will need a starter five days from now due to an injury. While two comeback victories over the Chicago Cubs paced Milwaukee to its first doubleheader sweep since 2010, the Brewers may have lost right-hander Yovani Gallardo in the process. Gallardo left...

Milwaukee Brewers giving fans $10 vouchers in wake of Ryan Braun drama

The Milwaukee Brewers were not exactly a playoff team before Ryan Braun was suspended for the remainder of the season, so you can understand why the suspension may have been the final straw for some of the team’s fans.

Brewers Sunday: Crew remains confident through loss

In what has turned into a lost season, the Milwaukee Brewers have lost their fair share of games in which they've played poorly. Those are the losses that keep manager Ron Roenicke awake at night. Sure, losing is welcomed by nobody inside Milwaukee's clubhouse, but losses like Sunday's in Colorado are at least easier to swallow. Though Sunday's 6-5 loss to the Rockies...

In fallout of the whole Ryan Braun situation, Milwaukee Brewers owner Mark Attanasio will be offering a $10 voucher to each fan that attends the team’s home games in August.
