Stockton Mudville Nine
From BR Bullpen
The Stockton entry in the California League was known as the Stockton Ports from 1979-1999 (and previously from 1946-1972) except for 1984, when the name used was the Stockton Mudville Nine. The Mudville Nine were a Milwaukee Brewers farm club and went 64-75 overall under the guidance of three different managers, Tim Nordbrook, Mike Pazik and Andy Etchebarren. They drew 97,005 fans, second in the league behind the Bakersfield Dodgers. Outscored 742-646, they allowed the second-highest run total in the California League. The only All-Star was DH-OF Glenn Braggs, the league MVP - Glenn hit .296/~.401/.491 with 15 homers, 86 RBI and 9 steals in 10 tries but did not lead the league in anything, though he nearly caught leader Mike Aldrete (.492) in slugging. Jay Aldrich (11-14, 8 Sv, 2.90) had the lowest ERA on the team but tied for the league lead in losses - a pretty rare feat for someone who pitched solely out of the bullpen (54 appearances). Juan Nieves (10-3, 3.54) had the best winning percentage.
