Harvey’s Wallbangers: The 1982 Milwaukee Brewers commemorates a team that captured the hearts and imagination of baseball fans not just in Wisconsin, but around the country. Named for skipper Harvey Kuenn, the home-run slugging club was filled with a memorable cast of characters, future Hall of Famers, and All-Stars: from Robin Yount, Gorman Thomas, Ted Simmons, and Rollie Fingers to Cecil Cooper, Ben Oglivie, Paul Molitor, and Don Sutton. They were a close-knit and resilient group that weathered controversies and slumps to capture the AL East crown on the last day of the season, overcome a two-games-to-none deficit to win the best-of-five League Championship Series, and move to within one game of winning the World Series.

This book is the result of the tireless work of more than 40 members of the Society for American Baseball Research. SABR members researched and wrote all of the biographies, game accounts, and essays in this volume.

Contributors include: Eric Aron, Bill Bishop, Richard Bogovich, Phillip Bolda, Frederick “Rick” Bush, Isaac Buttke, Ken Carrano, Alan Cohen, Rory Costello, Dennis D. Degenhardt, Dan Fields, John Gabcik, Gordon J. Gattie, Austin Gisriel, Gregg Hoffmann, Mike Huber, Jay Hurd, Maxwell Kates, Jimmy Keenan, Norm King, Lee Kluck, Steven Kuehl, Russ Lake, Len Levin, Dan Levitt, Bill Mortell, Rod Nelson, Bill Nowlin, J.G. Preston, Carl Riechers, Richard Riis, Joel Rippel, Rick Schabowski, David E. Skelton, Doug Skipper, Stew Thornley, Clayton Trutor, Dale Voiss, Joseph Wancho, Gregory H. Wolf, and Mario Ziino.
