The 1989 season will be remembered for tight races that led to a ho-hum World Series as the Milwaukee Brewers and their erstwhile leading man, Jeff Kloster, won in five games over the formidable New York Yankees. No one expected it to go this smoothly, but after taking the first two games in New York, Kloster's Brewers put the hammer down to end the Yankees' season a couple days earlier than Yankees GM Randy Partin had hoped.
The title was number seven in the storied PFL career of Kloster, tying him with Geoff Brookes for most in the league's 27-season existence. The two, Kloster and Brookes, own over half of the league's championships.
In the picture above, Kloster appears set on getting to work to defend the championship. "We're ready," Yountfan told PFL beat reporters. "I predict right here and now that the 1989 crown will remain in Milwaukee."
Now on to 1989.
