If you like the Milwaukee Brewers and you have a Twitter account, then chances are you’re aware of Tim Dillard. The charismatic veteran reliever has been bringing a dash of humor to the timelines of sports fans with his solid celebrity impersonations and goofy clubhouse videos he’s made over the course of his 20-year career (spent almost exclusively with Brewers minor league affiliates).
In 2019, the longtime Milwaukee farmhand—who was drafted by the team in 2001 and last pitched with the parent club in 2012—saw his lengthy tenure of Brewers employment come to an end when he signed a minor league deal with the Texas Rangers organization. However, with minor league baseball canceled this year, the 37-year-old is making his way back to Milwaukee to pitch again. Actually, he’s coming to Franklin, Wisconsin to pitch, but close enough!
Saturday evening, the Milwaukee Milkmen announced Dillard had been added to the American Association franchise’s roster. The experienced and affable hurler won’t just be on the team…he’ll also be pitching for the Milkmen during today’s game.
You DO NOT want to miss today’s game…@DimTillard will make his debut with the Milkmen! Buy your tickets now!
