The Brewers matched up against the Kansas City Royals Friday and Saturday in exhibition play, marking the first big league season for Mike Jirschele.

The Clintonville native has spent the past 36 years in the minor leagues as a player and coach. When Ned Yost asked him to be on his staff last fall, it was a long time in the making.
