BANQUET GUESTS WILL HEAR FROM DOUG MELVIN
Milwaukee Brewers General Manager, Doug Melvin, will provide insights on the 2014 season and a look ahead to the upcoming 2015 campaign at our 50th Anniversary banquet.
In October of 2002, the Milwaukee Brewers hired Doug Melvin to lead their baseball operations back to the winning ways the team experienced in the early 80’s. By rebuilding the team’s farm system through strong drafts, hiring quality front office executives and field personel, along with organizational changing trades, both at the big league and minor league level, the Brewers finished with an above .500 record in 2007 for the first time in 15 years.
Melvin continues to grow the franchise organically and with key acquisitions to build a contender. The club spent 150 days in first place in 2014 and plan to build on that foundation for a playoff run in 2015.
We look forward to hearing from Doug Melvin in his interview with banquet emcee Dave Edwards on Tuesday, January 20, 2015 at the Paper Valley Hotel in Appleton.
