Nostalgia is a powerful thing, especially among tradition-bound fans of America's Pastime. That's why many of us yearn for the chance to experience even just one game at a place like Milwaukee's old Borchert Field, chronicled in a new book by Bob Buege.
"I didn't realize it at the time," Hall of Famer Hank Aaron said. "But after we won the seventh game of the 1957 World Series, everything started to go downhill."
In 1936, the Milwaukee Brewers won the American Association title, then faced - and beat - the rival International League champion Buffalo Bisons to win the Little World Series. The 75th anniversary of that victory was the impetus for a compact exhibition at the Central Milwaukee Public Library, 814 W. Wisconsin Ave., that will delight baseball fans.
