Along with the 1943 road jersey, and the re-introduced the Brewers' 1905 cap, the purveyor of throwback baseball jerseys and clothing has added another slice of Milwaukee baseball history into their catalog; the jersey our Brews wore in 1936, when they won the American Association pennant.
Milwaukee Brewers 1936 Home
History: One of the most interesting things about the original minor league Brewers was their ballpark. The oddly-configured Borchert Field was built in 1887 and featured left and right field corners of only 266 feet. But the rectangular shape of the outfield made center field home runs nearly impossible. When the legendary Bill Veeck owned the team he installed a motor on the right field fence to move it back when the visiting team was up to bat. A rule was quickly passed outlawing this stunt.
All Ebbets Field Flannels are made-to-order and handcrafted in the USA. Please allow 4 - 6 weeks for production. We can make any authentic flannel from the Negro Leagues, Minor Leagues, Latin America and many more. Contact us for details.

I love it. The double-piping is a great look, as is the simple block "M".
A few years ago, we looked at a team photo showing off this gorgeous jersey.

Ebbets Field Flannels once offered the matching cap - perhaps if they sell enough jerseys we can get them to bring it back for a little while.
Next year is the 80th anniversary of that pennant-winning season, and we at BorchertField.com have big plans to celebrate it. I hope you'll order your jersey today to celebrate with us.
