The Brewers had three pitchers named to the All-Star team last weekend when the squads were first announced, and that was already enough for a franchise record with (top photo, from left) Corbin Burnes, Brandon Woodruff and Josh Hader. However, Woodruff bowed out of the All-Star Game and as a replacement teammate Freddy Peralta (right photo), the smiling 25-year-old from Moca, Dominican Republic, took his place, which made for four members of the Milwaukee Brewers on the All-Star team. But apparently four Brewers were not enough for the All-Stars as Omar Narváez (bottom photo) was named as a replacement as well, taking the place of Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina, who elected to opt out in favor of rest. That makes a total of five Brewers in the All-Star Game that took place on Tuesday, July 13, 2021. Let’s hope this is a start of a new tradition for the Brewers.
