The Milwaukee Brewers are a professional baseball team based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, currently contesting the Central Division of Major League Baseball's National League. The team is named for the city's association with the brewing industry and play their home games at Miller Park.

Originating in Seattle, Washington, as the Seattle Pilots, the club played for one season in 1969 before being acquired in bankruptcy court by current MLB Commissioner Bud Selig and then moved to Milwaukee. The Brewers were part of the American League from their creation as an expansion club in 1969 through the 1997 season, after which they moved to the National League Central Division.
