    1926 Brewers Team Stats
    Here's a new edit, the original of which comes from the excellent blog/online museum: "Welcome to Borchert Field, the only online museum dedicated to the Milwaukee Brewers of the American Association, 1902-1952, their ballpark, and all the events it hosted."

        1936 Brewers Team Stats
        Here's the '36 Brewers, in color no less! I did quite a bit of editing on this one, including the removal of a nasty crease right down the middle. The original comes from The Milwaukee Journal (6/28/1936) and Borchert Field, where you can check out a story about the team as well as the ID's of all the players.

        • Wow! Color!!! And 1936! This is one of the earliest examples of color in baseball we have. And a perfect picture to steal for my other thread, on color in baseball! Thanks, BSmile!

          When Did Color Photography Come to Baseball

            Yeah, it's a great photo for sure. I'd been meaning to edit it for the longest time.
            Btw Bill, the '36 Brewers finished the season in first place. To quote from Borchert Field:

            "The 1936 Brewers would finish the season 90-64, 5 games ahead of second-place St. Paul. It was the Brews' first pennant since 1914, and third overall."

            • Strange. I was going by the link you provided. It gave them lower than first place, for some reason. I give up.

                The "standings" for the 1936 American Association in Baseball Reference are just an alphabetical list of the teams, without won-lost records. That may have been the source of the confusion.

                    It's alright Bill. It happens to the best of us...even Ty Cobb made 271 errors in his career!

                            The 1947 Giants didn't win the pennant, but they were renowned for something else: home runs. Led by Johnny Mize's league-leading 51 HR's, the '47 squad managed to crack 221 HR's, shattering the old MLB mark of 182 set by the 1936 Yankees.

                                There's a story about Jim Tabor from his BoSox days that he had to be restrained from beating the hell out of Ted Williams for refusing to pursue fly balls because Ted was sulking about something.
