Milwaukee Brewers: Aussie Brew Crew

The Milwaukee Brewers seem to like the taste of Fosters Beer, as to date four Australians have played Major League Baseball with them. The first was Dave Nilsson in 1992, followed by Graeme Lloyd, Trent Durrington, and Grant Balfour. The Brewers have recorded plenty of Australian Baseball History. In 1993 Graeme Lloyd pitched to Dave Nilsson which made the first all-Australian battery. In 1999 Dave Nilsson was a National League All-Star for the Brewers, and in 2004 Trent Durrington was the first Australian positional player to pitch at the major league level. The Brewers are currently equal second with the San Diego Padres and Los Angeles Dodgers for total number of Aussies to play on a single team.
