A Founding Father helped deliver the Brewers' Independence Day lineup cards
The Brewers were on the road in Cincinnati for their game on Independence Day, but that didn't mean that they weren't going to get into the July 4th spirit. In fact, they were so into it that they had a Founding Father on hand to deliver the lineup cards to the umpires:
Good to see that America's third president was able to take time out of writing the Declaration of Independence to also sketch out Craig Counsell's lineup.
The Brewers were clearly just in a colonial spirit.
No word yet on whether or not the team was also successful in its attempts to kidnap George Washington from the Presidents' Race in D.C. to get him to participate as well.
