THE NAME THAT MADE MILWAUKEE FAMOUS
Published July 14, 1995
A WI legislator is proposing that the Brewers change thier name to the "Wisconsin Brewers" if state funds are used to pay for a new stadium for the team. State Rep. Mark Meyer wrote a letter to WI Gov. Tommy Thompson calling for the name change. MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL columnist Michael Bauman writes "by all means, change the name" if it means the team gets a new stadium. Bauman notes that while Milwaukeans would oppose such a move, the WI Legislature would be more receptive to funding if a state-wide name is used. Bauman: "The deal -- give a name, get a stadium -- would be a steal. It would be like trading Ron Rightnower for Hideo Nomo" (MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL, 7/13).
