In part two of this retrospective of the 1979 Milwaukee Brewers’ season narrated by the legendary Bob Uecker, we open with the most Milwaukee of traditions, tailgating before a ballgame. Unfortunately, the season opened with an unfortunate situation after slugger Larry Hisle - the 1978 Brewers MVP - tore a muscle in his shoulder and lost almost the entire season to injury. Stepping in for the injured Hisle were veteran Ben Oglive and a very young Paul Molitor. The 1979 season saw the emergence of the greatest double play tandem in Brewers history, Robin Yount and a second-year Molitor. Also featured in this retrospective are Brewer fan favorites Cecil Cooper, Gorman Thomas, and Sixto Lezcano.
