    Coincidentally, Stein's rookie year was also 1978, also with the Brewers. He was 3-2 with a 5.33 ERA in 31 games (one start).

    Born William Randolph Stein on March 7, 1953 in Pomona, Randy lost his valiant 4 year battle with Early Onset Alzheimer's on December 12, 2011.

    Randy graduated from Ganesha High School in 1971 where he was an outstanding athlete and was drafted in the first round by the Baltimore Orioles.

    He broke into the Majors in 1978 with the Milwaukee Brewers, and also played for the Seattle Mariners and Chicago Cubs.

    Good catch, Cowtipper.
    Both of them were only a few months younger than me and, in particular Stein's story, realize that is not something you normally hear about with anyone that age.

    1978 was a magical year for the Brewers the rookie years for both those fellows.

    Rest in Peace

      I was unaware of both their passings. I recall Handy Andy pitching for the Brewers more clearly than I remember Randy Stein (I remember his name, but couldn't recall when he was with the Crew). Remembering Replogle as a spot starter, he had one of the best performance streaks anyone could have had during the second half in '78 before cooling down late, late that season. Another rookie, Paul Molitor, slumped late in that season, too.
