A Kewaunee native, “Augie” is one of less than 5 Wisconsin natives who spent their entire MLB career playing for their hometown Brewers. The 3-sport high school athlete played his college ball at UW LaCrosse. The Brewers wisely chose Jerry in the 1974 Draft. The next year, Jerry was pitching for the Brewers. For the next ten seasons, Jerry was a vital part of the Brewers pitching staff, whether it was as a Starter or Reliever. After his MLB career, Jerry coached the UWM baseball team to 300+ victories and 3 trips to the NCAA Tourney. Today, Jerry can be seen on FSWis Brewers TV broadcasts. Jerry is also a member of the Brewers Wall of Honor (2014).
Bill “Rock” Schroeder, was born in Baltimore, but grew up in New Jersey. He played his college ball for Clemson University and was chosen by the Brewers in the 1979 MLB Draft. Bill was the Brewers rookie who hit 15 home runs in the fewest number of games (50), until Ryan Braun broke that record. In 1988, Bill was traded to the California Angels where he spent the final two years of his MLB career before retiring in 1990. In 1995, Bill became the color commentator for the Brewers TV broadcasts. In 2004, Bill became the Director of the annual Brewers Fantasy Camp, which is held during the winter in Phoenix.
“Gumby” is a Wisconsin native who still lives in his hometown of Eden. He went to UW Oshkosh where he played his college ball before being drafted by the Brewers in 1974. He played two years in Brewers minor leagues before being called up to “the Show” where he spent 17 years as a Brewer. He was a key member of the Brewers infield playing along side The Kid, Molly and Coop for many years. In retirement, Jim has kept in touch with baseball, coaching for the Brewers and even managing the Wisconsin Woodchucks in the Northwest League during 2007. Jim is a member of the Wisconsin Athletic Hall of Fame (2005) and the Brewer’s Wall of Honor (2014).
