    1. Robin Yount was one of the best clutch hitters and overall players the game has ever had !! Always been a big fan of him since I was a kid .. I'm hoping for a Red Sox/Brewers World Series this year !!

    2. Robin Yount (not counting Ernie Banks who played multi positions)was the man IMO that revolutionized the shortstop in baseball forever in this '82 season. As great as Ozzie Smith was on defense, Robin proved you can have the best of both worlds as the "Captain" of the infield. Yount was very good defensive and as shown here in this video clip great offensive power as well. Set the bar for offensive as shown here. And laid the ground for other future great all around SS's from Ripken to Jeter and many others to this day in between.

      Other than Frank Robinson, Robin is maybe the most underrated Great HOF player in MLB History.

    3. One of the most critical single game performances in Brewers history – it was such a crucial game at the end of the regular season, the Brewers desperately needed the win in order to make the American League Championship. Yount delivered beyond measure. Yount went on to win AL MVP that season. He'd win another AL MVP seven years later. One of the best professional athletes in Wisconsin pro sports history. Yount's 1982 season, when he led the Brewers to the World Series, was incredible. Yount was incredibly clutch his entire career.

    4. Wow. I remember seeing this as a kid. The second HR was up and down the middle. If I remember, Flanagan was the scheduled starter but Earl started Palmer instead. Bad move.
