MLB 2012 Game #5: Diamondbacks vs. BrewersLater today, the Milwaukee Brewers will celebrate Italian Heritage Day at Miller Park. The Brewers will wear special uniforms that read "Birraioli" across their chests. That's the Italian translation of Brewers.
Any chance Zack Greinke accidentally previewed the jersey last night?
