We were two games away, then one game away and now, thanks to last night's nail-biting victory over the Dodgers, the Milwaukee Brewers clinched their 12th straight win. Thus, for only the second time in franchise history, George Webb Restaurants will honor its famous "12 in a Row" baseball prediction with free hamburgers for fans.
The burger giveaway will take place Thursday, Oct. 18 from 2 to 6 p.m. at all 30 George Webb’s locations. A limited menu will also be available.
"It’s been a long time coming, and we are thrilled that our famous predication is once again true," said Ryan Stamm, vice president of George Webb Restaurants. "It’s been great to see our customers and the community rally around this year’s team, and our grills are ready to cook up burgers to celebrate some of the best fans in baseball!"
The "12 in a Row" prediction started in the 1940s, when George Webb himself promised that if the hometown team won 12 games in a row, he would grill free hamburgers for fans.
In the years since then, the one and only other hamburger giveaway took place in April 1987 during which George Webb prepared nearly 170,000 hamburgers. I remember going to the George Webb on Oakland Avenue in Shorewood (it's not there anymore) with my dad and sister and about 500 other beaming, cheering, hungry fans.
