The Milwaukee Brewers aren’t exactly synonymous with great All-Star Game moments, but that’s not to say the franchise hasn’t had its share.
The Brewers have hosted the All-Star Game twice: In 1975 at old County Stadium and the infamous 7-7 tie at Miller Park in 2002.
County Stadium hosted the game one other time. In 1955, the Milwaukee Braves were the host team as the All-Star Game came to Wisconsin for the very first time.
Three Brewers share the club record for the most All-Star Game selections with five—Cecil Cooper (1979-90, 1982-83 and 1985), Paul Molitor (1980, 1985, 1988, 1991-92) and Ryan Braun (2008-12, the only Brewer ever named to five consecutive games).
Other Milwaukee Brewers to make multiple appearances in the All-Star Game include:
- 4: Don Money, Ben Sheets
- 3: Prince Fielder, Ben Oglivie, Dan Plesac, Robin Yount
- 2: Rollie Fingers, Corey Hart, Carlos Lee, Ted Simmons, Greg Vaughn
Lucroy is the second Brewer catcher ever to start a Midsummer Classic, the first since Simmons in 1983, while Ramirez is the first Brewer third baseman ever selected to start.
Gomez joins Braun, Hart, Jeromy Burnitz and Oglivie as All-Star starters in the outfield from Milwaukee.
So here are the five most memorable All-Star Game moments in the All-Star Game:
