Pinkeye Brewing for Cactus Crew

An irritating, but temporary turn of events for Milwaukee

MLB Today

Last year during Spring Training the Milwaukee Brewers became attached to man’s best friend and gave Hank the Dog a better home back in Wisconsin. This year the Cactus League brought a case of pinkeye to the Brew Crew, proving that while the sun shines every day in the desert, sometimes it’s just better not to give high-fives.

Hank is cute cool, pinkeye is not--just ask Bob Costas.

The club has banned high-fives for the next few days in order to not spread the infections caused by bacteria or a virus. Catcher Jonathan Lucroy was the latest player to experience symptoms and miss game time.

Also known as conjuctivitis, pinkeye is the swelling of the mucous membrane that lines the eyelid and eye surface. If not treated the symptoms usually go away within seven to 10 days.

Pinkeye hasn’t hurt the Brewers’ bats as the team has won three straight games and sits at 3-5 in Cactus League play.
