Come on Down!

In conjunction with Paul Tenpenny's exhibition at the Milwaukee Public Library, there is a rare opportunity to hear some former Brewers speak this weekend. has the details:

In conjunction with the exhibition, the Society for American Baseball Research's Ken Keltner Badger State Chapter holds its meeting this weekend at the library's Centennial Hall, 733 N. 8th St.

The meeting – free and open to the public – starts at 11 a.m. on Saturday, May 7 and will feature a panel that includes former Brewers and Braves players Johnny Logan and Bert Thiel, Bill Topitzes, who worked for the AA Brewers and Dennis Pajot, author of two books about Milwaukee baseball.

The panel is moderated by baseball historian Bob Buege, who has written two books about the Milwaukee Braves.

In addition, Pajot will do a presentation on Otto Borchert.

You know Dennis, recipient of the 2010 Sporting News-SABR Baseball Research Award, from his books and his many articles on this site. I am honored to host his excellent work, and can't wait to hear what he has to say about Otto.

I would encourage any fan of baseball in Milwaukee, or Wisconsin for that matter, to check it out. I wish I could be there.
