Craig Counsell introduced as new Brewers managerSubmitted: 05/04/2015
MILWAUKEE - The Brewers fired manager Ron Roenicke and replaced him with former Milwaukee infielder Craig Counsell.

Milwaukee, a major league-worst 7-18, lost 40 of its final 56 games under Roenicke. The skid included a late-season collapse last year after the Brewers led the NL Central for nearly five months, and a 2-13 start this season.

Counsell, a 44-year-old Milwaukee-area native, was given a contract through the 2017 season, the Brewers said Monday.

He spent the final five seasons of his 16-year big-league career with the Brewers, retiring after the 2011 season.

A two-time World Series champion, he scored the winning run for Florida in the 11th inning of Game 7 of the 2003 World Series and was MVP of the 2001 NL Championship Series for Arizona.
