This Friday will become a milestone in Superfan history. It marks your return to Milwaukee to be immortalized on the Brewers Wall of Honor. While not all of the Superfans can be there in person, you can be damn certain they all will hear about it and celebrate it accordingly. Superfan Silvester has already seen your plaque.
I, along with Superfan Handy Jay, will be in attendance Friday from the moment the park opens until the last pitch in the final inning. We hope to at some point see you there, and watch history in the making. We also will be going out after the game and as always, we would love it if you would join us.
I want to thank you for all the memories- the countless “How many outs” interactions, numerous practice balls tossed up to us (even in the club level) and the many pictures and autographs that adorn each of our Brewers rooms (yes, we each have a room dedicated to the Brewers). From the 2008 game where we clinched the playoffs and you hopped on the dugout and we chugged some beers as the fans gave you high fives, to the sad day of when you left Milwaukee and gave us a call out in your farewell newspaper post, all the way to when we reconnected again in Cleveland when you were in town with the Mariners… these and all the memories in between we will cherish. You were part of what defined us as “Superfans” and for me, you played a large part in why I love baseball as much as I do.
Where this may be the end of the Condor era of Brewers baseball, it warms my heart to see that you will retire as a Milwaukee Brewer. That is a permanent bookmark in the saga of the Milwaukee Brewers Baseball Club. I speak for all the Superfans when I tell you we could not be more proud that you chose to do it this way.
Thank you Corey “The Condor” Hart!
For Love of the Game-
