The Milwaukee Brewers are a professional baseball team based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and they compete in Major League Baseball (MLB) as a member club of the National League (NL) Central division. The team was founded in 1969 in Seattle as the Pilots, but after an unsuccessful inaugural season, the franchise was moved to Milwaukee, where it took on the name of a long-standing local minor league team, the Brewers. The Brewers struggled initially, posting a losing record in each of their first eight seasons in Milwaukee. However, they have had some notable players in their history, including Cecil Cooper, who ranks among the Brewers franchise leaders in batting average, hits, RBIs, and more. In the 2023 season, the Brewers have been hitting their stride on offense, averaging 5.4 runs per game since July 28.
