On July 1st, the Brewers will be having an Italian Heritage night. Heritage nights are common in baseball, but this is the first time to my knowledge that a team will be wearing an Italian Heritage Uniform on the field (and definitely the first time an opponent will be wearing an Italian themed uniform, but more on that tomorrow).
Anyway Uni Watch Blog posted this image of the Birrai’s uniform set last week. As you can tell the uniform is based off of the current batting practice uniform, has red underarms with a green uniform and the current Brewers patch. Personally, I’m a little confused why they don’t treat this like their Cerveceros uniforms and just change the name on the front of the uniform and keep the uniform in color set.
This uniform isn’t that appealing at all, but it is a lot better than their opponents, which we’ll talk about tomorrow.

The road to recovery is starting to become clearer for one of the injured Brewers.
Right-hander Marco Estrada, who has been on the disabled list since May 24 with a strained right quad, threw off the mound prior to Sunday's game against San Diego and will move forward with plans to throw a simulated game on Tuesday in Kansas City.
If all goes well, Estrada will throw one more...
Emotion in the game of baseball can be a tricky thing. There's a fine line between playing with passion and showing up the opposition.
Perhaps no player has toed this line closer than Nyjer Morgan.
When things are going well for both the player and the ball club, Morgan's fun-loving and entertaining alter ego "Tony Plush" is revered by Brewers fans.
As a part of a travel day to Kansas City, the Brewers decided to have a little fun on their trip, all dressing up in 80's-themed clothing on the flight. The players had a ton of fun with this on Twitter, posting some individual photos as well as the big group picture you see here. I tried to identify each player/team official in costume, but I know I missed a few, namely...
I get the rest of the outfits, but why is closer John Axford wearing a tutu?
The Milwaukee Brewers are in Kansas City for a three game interleague series against the Royals, and a few of the players thought it would be an ideal time to ditch their regular attire and don the costumes of that dreaded 80s relic, the hair metal band. From left to right there’s George Kottaras, Marco...
It's all too easy in baseball to get sucked into the little moments of drama sprinkled throughout a 162-game regular season. The bottom-of-the-ninth comebacks. The walk-off grand slams. The game-ending strikeouts.
It doesn't often matter when in the season these instances take place. We are, after all, just 60 games into the 2012 baseball season a little over one third...
The 1980s were good to the Milwaukee Brewers, with a World Series trip, two Cy Young winners and three MVP awards.
So on their latest travel day to Kansas City on Monday, the Brewers paid homage to that decade but with some noticeably bigger hair and much tighter pants.
Dressed in 1980s gear, the Brewers covered all the bases of the decade's fashion trends before they boarded...
The Milwaukee Brewers held an 80′s flashback road trip recently, but Ryan Braun was too cool to participate I guess.
BREW CREW: Circa 1980
Picture is compliments of Carlos Gomez’s Twitter account.
Ryan Braun homered and Yovani Gallardo pitched seven innings to help the Milwaukee Brewers beat the San Diego Padres 6-5 Sunday.
Martin Maldonado homered to cap a four-run sixth inning for Milwaukee and Braun drove in three runs for the Brewers, who finished a nine game homestand by going 5-4 against the Pirates, Cubs and Padres. The last two teams have the worst two records in...
Zack Greinke hasn't pitched as consistently on the road as he has at home, but his next road start isn't in unfamiliar territory.
Greinke faces his former team for the first time Tuesday night when the Milwaukee Brewers visit the Kansas City Royals.
Milwaukee traded for Greinke (7-2, 3.13 ERA), the 2009 AL Cy Young Award winner, prior to the 2011 season. He was 60-67 with...

Fresh off a four-game sweep of the team with the best record in baseball, the Brewers had a nine-game homestand looming with two of three opponents coming to Milwaukee with the two worst records in baseball.
It was a chance for Milwaukee to really surge ahead and get back into the race.
In the end, the Brewers escaped with a 5-4 record and...
