MILWAUKEE -- The Milwaukee Brewers will need more big hits if they're going to make the playoffs again this season. The guys may want to take a page from the Brewers wives, who helped build success by pitching in with Habitat for Humanity Milwaukee.

The group of Milwaukee Brewers wives were having far too much fun for a group of women who volunteered to work all day long, helping to build a house in the city.

Nobody was more thankful for the efforts of Brewers wives than Marquitta Smith, who, along with AmeriCorps members, local volunteers and sponsors is contributing hundreds of sweat equity honors, building the Ryan Braun home as well as neighbors' homes in Milwaukee's Amani Neighborhood where she grew up. Smith and her three children are moving in to the Ryan Braun house this Christmas!

10 new homes were built in the neighborhood when the hammers stopped swinging on Friday, May 18th.
