Rickie Weeks played with and against Prince Fielder when they were 11 year olds playing in the Orlando, Florida area. Today they are teammates with the Milwaukee Brewers making up the right side of the infield. Also Fielder is the Godfather of Weeks’ child. Both Weeks & Fielder are off to good starts with the bat this year, although they’re not nearly as talented with the gloves as they are at the dish. Rickie is only 23 years old, Fielder is a 21 year old rookie, while shortstop J.J. Hardy is 23 years of age. This threesome on the infield reminds folks of three former Brewers who played together for 15 years starting in the 70s. Robin Yount, Paul Molitor, & Jim Gantner were the Brewers for many a year and these new Brew Crew Kids will be the cornerstone for Milwaukee for years to come. Check out a cool article about this story that appeared in the Wisconsin State Journal.
