This was such a cool thing for me to look up thanks to this brief but fantastic Twitter exchange between Tim Dillard and former big league Brewer OF Drew Anderson (currently a Regional Supervisor in the Crew's Amateur Scouting Department.)

We have created Brewerfan Player Pages going back to 2001. Heck, back in 2006, we even manually keyed in career year-by-year stat lines (here's Ronald Acuna, Sr.), as the guys discuss at the tweet.

Ronald Acuna, Sr. was a very young dad, only 18 years old when his son was born.

Sure enough, Acuna, Sr. spent the 2006 season (and the end of his affiliated baseball pro career) as a minor league free agent signed by the Crew the prior January to fill in the AA Huntsville roster.


You'll notice Drew Anderson and now Texas Rangers' Assistant Big League Hitting Coach Callix Crabbe mentioned here:

Well, not like bad sins, just baseball "mistakes".

I'm always enthused when a nugget of info like that has us reaching deep, deep into the Brewerfan archives.

Thanks Tim! Thanks Drew!
