It’s a great time to be a fan of the Milwaukee Brewers. The team ended an especially memorable season on a hot streak that allowed them to overtake the Cubs for the National League Central title and a spot in the postseason. The Cardinals didn’t make the playoffs. The Cubs are already eliminated. Christian Yelich is without a doubt the NL’s MVP. Bob Uecker is saying and doing hilarious stuff during the team’s lock room celebrations. It’s enough to make you want to sing.
The day after the Brewers clinched the division, one fan decided to record a song of his own to commemorate the occasion. Drew Schmitz, a Milwaukee resident who plays in a post-punk band called Usufruct, devoted most of Tuesday to writing and recording a Brewers-themed rendition of Terry Cashman’s “Talkin’ Baseball” (which Cashman also turned into “Talkin’ Softball” for an iconic Simpsons episode).
The end result is “Brewers Baseball,” a hilarious and heartwarming anthem that’s tailor-made for Milwaukee’s postseason run. Listen to Schmitz’s “Brewers Baseball” now and see Usufruct at High Dive on October 28. This song will probably be out of your head by then.
