OnMilwaukee.com took a look at how exactly the Milwaukee Brewers have managed to become one of the National League's most successful franchises since 2007.
The series includes:
We take a look at how the organization has fielded a competitive team despite revenue constraints, and the future concerns the team has regarding regional television contracts.
We take a look at the mental effect the organization's development model has had on some of its players.
