Pete was drafted in 23rd round of 1999 draft and traded to Brewers at 2001 Trade Deadline along with Ruben Quevedo for David Weathers. He made his MLB debut as a Milwaukee Brewer on September 5, 2003. He gives an inside perspective about his baseball life with some great stories. Definitely worth a listen!

Just like your David Pember interview, your chat with Pete Zoccolillo above was fantastic.

Both of those guys had a Nate Orf-like "let's get these guys to the big leagues" vibe in those very early days of Brewerfan, there just wasn't the easily viral "Free ___ ___" tweets to accompany during those gloomy times for the Brewers big league and minor league squads.

Zoccolillo really tells a great story (numerous ones), and the unique way he learned he'd been called up, after his minor league season was complete, is a great listen.

Look, I don't want 38-players on September rosters, but it is a shame a lot of farmhands whose only big league experience will be as September call-ups may not ever get to share similar call-up stories if the MLB roster adjustment rules go into effect.

Great job, guys, keep 'em coming.

I remember he made a sliding catch in RF in Wrigley for the final out over the Cubs.

Any chance he could be a part of our 7123 part series of former brewers?
