Hip Hip, Hooray!

The Brews always had great fans at Borchert Field, but none better than this group of young ladies captured by a Journal photographer at the 1939 home opener:

Truest supporters of the Milwaukee baseball team are these young ladies, who cheered themselves hoarse at the season's opener here Wednesday. They formed a club, the Milwaukee Brewers' Boosters, last October, made the natty outfits you see and ordered their opening day tickets last January so as to be near the Brewer dugout. Left to right are Geraldine Schneider, Janet Constantine, Mildred Wroblewski, Ethel Barber, Mercedes Oelstrom and Henrietta Constantine. (Journal Staff Photo)
The sweaters are great, but I'd kill for one of those hand-painted megaphones.
