Mike Hegan, a prominent original player on the Milwaukee Brewers baseball team, has passed away.


Hegan was a member of the Seattle Pilots when the franchise moved to Milwaukee and became the Brewers in 1970. He played in Milwaukee for just a couple years before leaving for other teams, but came back to the Brewers in the middle of the decade for a few more seasons.
