Miller Park public address announcer Robb Edwards retires

Sunday's game at Miller Park between the Brewers and Cubs was the last one for long-time public address announcer Robb Edwards.

Edwards began working for the Brewers in 1998, filling in for then public address announcer Bob Betts.  One year later, he became the permanent voice of County Stadium for its final two years.

When Miller Park opened he transitioned to the same role, which he held full time through 2018.  This year, he has been announcing part-time. 

Edwards has a long career in broadcasting since moving from Chicago to Milwaukee in 1959, including host of WTMJ's morning show from 1985 until 2000.
 
The Brewers honored Edwards with having him throw out one of the first pitches before Sunday's game, and by dedicating the scoreboard control room at Miller Park for him.
