Boushley played for Schwarz at UW-L back from 2015-2017.
This is the second-consecutive year Schwarz has seen one of his former players get to the Majors.
Last year, it was Holmen native Taylor Kohlwey for the San Diego Padres.
Boushley debuted for the Brewers last Friday, entering in the eighth inning with a one-run lead against the Cubs.
Schwarz tells the story, as he and about 400 other friends and family of Boushley’s, including “the whole town of Hortonville,” were in the stands.
Before that conversation, though, we had to rant about Giannis Antetokounmpo living over a decade in Wisconsin and never having a bratwurst.
