Cecil Cooper is the special guest at Time Warner Cable Field today.  He is the subject of this column in the Post-Crescent.
So how about telling us about that cool autumn night in '82 when you strolled to the plate facing this situation: Bags full. Two outs. Outcome in doubt. A pennant aching to be raised. Tension unbearable.

"You're thinking maybe this is another chance for me," said the 60-year-old Cooper and former Brewers slugger, who will be at Time Warner Cable Field at Fox Cities Stadium today in conjunction with the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers' scheduled Midwest League game against Burlington.

"You're kind of hoping there's another chance here. There were two outs, and there might not be another chance to do it again, to get up there again in that situation. You always want to do that as a player. You want to be up in those moments. So I'm sitting there, wishing and hoping that it comes to fruition.

"Lo and behold, I get up there with a chance to give us the lead. I had to kind of battle a little bit in the at-bat, but I got a pitch to handle and laid it out in left field and it turned out to be, I guess, the biggest moment in Brewers history."
Relive it now..
