Tom Trebelhorn

Trebelhorn, a schoolteacher in the off-season, took over the Brewers at the end of 1986 after George Bamberger retired. The former strong-armed minor league catcher led the team to third place finishes in his first two full seasons, exhibiting a patient style well suited to the streaky team. The club began the 1987 season with 13 straight wins, tying the ML record for fast starts, but lost 12 straight two weeks later.
