"Wild Welcome for Brewers", 1951

On the morning of Monday, August 7, 1951, the Brewers returned to Milwaukee from an extended road trip.

Wild Welcome for Brewers!

Brilliant. I love the oversized bat. 

The Brews would go on to win the American Association pennant and the Little World Series, more than justifying the faith those Milwaukee fans displayed on that Monday morning.
