Brewer Nation Interview: Milwaukee Brewers 2011 Draftee Chad Pierce

By: Big Rygg

Trying this from my phone for the first time, so I’ll be brief.

In keeping with tradition here at The Brewer Nation, I have once again chosen and subsequently interviewed a draft choice of the Milwaukee Brewers.

They say sometimes a story writes itself. Well, this year’s pick basically chose itself. When presented with the chance to interview a Wisconsin native who was drafted and signed by his favorite team…

Like I said, easy decision.

I plan on transcribing the interview soon but after all the technical difficulties I had getting the audio put together, I wanted to get it posted.

This was recorded on the morning of Saturday, June 18, 2011. Like I said, I had some issues with the recording so at times it’s difficult to understand. Apologies for that, bit the transcription will happen soon.
