MILWAUKEE -- There was a special moment before the Milwaukee Brewers game at Miller Park on Wednesday, Aug. 28. It all came when the national anthem was sung by the Free Beer Quartet.
Baritone Mike Bonn was diagnosed with ALS a year ago and has been given a short life expectancy. Bonn continues to fight the disease. However, he is now unable to get out of his wheelchair. Wednesday's performance, with family and friends in the stands, was done in part to raise awareness about ALS.
The Free Beer Quartet has been together since 1983. They all met in college in Ladysmith, Wisconsin.
Wednesday's anthem performance was the group's fifth at Miller Park.
