Opening Day trivia question

What Brewer hit two Opening Day grand slams?

Trivia book MILWAUKEE BREWERS IQ scheduled to be released APRIL 6, the day after the Brewers home opener against Rockies.Visit to be one of the first to order and receive book.

"The title sums it up perfectly. Joel Katte has done an excellent job of teasing the reader with relatively common knowledge early, and frustrating the most diehard of Brewers fans by the “final out.” The aficionado will even be mentally transported to the place they heard or saw the respective event in question. Katte has done his homework and I cannot wait for more. This is a must-have at any Milwaukee tailgate party. Go Brewers!"

Sneak peak at book's cover

I just received a sneak peak at what my book's cover might look like. I like the focus on the stadium's signature roof and colors of the retro uniforms. The picture was taken on one of the "Arctic Freeze" 8 degrees days when fans were sleeping in tents, tailgating, and waiting for Opening Day tickets. Certainly, those diehards deserve "ultimate" status in true fandom.
