Brewers Name Craig Councell New Manager


Last night the Milwaukee Brewers announced the firing of manager Ron Roenicke. Today the ball club named its long-term replacement, Craig Counsell. General manager Doug Melvin introduced Counsell to the team and the media this morning. He takes over the club that has started the season with a 7-18 record, the worst in the major leagues. Counsell, a 16-year veteran and Milwaukee native, retired from playing as a member of the Brewers in 2011. He has since been a part of the Brewers front office team. For Counsell, this is a great fit because it’s an organization he’s always loved and respected.

Councell: “I’ve worked here as a player and in the front office. I’ve watched Brewer games for 35 years. I’m a Milwaukee Brewer. I’ve always felt that way. Baseball in this city is important to me, it’s a part of me, I feel a responsibility for it, I always have. I’m proud of that responsibility.”
