The original Milwaukee Brewers from the turn of the century. The Milwaukee Braves from the 50's and early 60's, which became, of course, the Atlanta Braves. The modern Milwaukee Brewers. Milwaukee joined the National League in the late 1870s with a team called the Milwaukee Greys. This team finished last and was shut down within a year or so after its debut. Following this team were a series of semi-professional or minor league teams, associated with organizations like the Western Association, Western League, and American Association, first under the name Milwaukee Creams (Milwaukee was called the Cream City because of its unusual cream-colored brick), and later as the Milwaukee Brewers. It was as the Brewers that Milwaukee became a founding franchise in the American League, with Connie Mack as the manager. they had one good year, then Mack left the team, after which the team stunk and was moved to St. Louis, where they became the Browns (proving that St. Louis had to turn to Milwaukee when they wanted Brewers - ha ha) After that, as already indicated, Milwaukee had the Braves and the current Brewers.
