Corey Hart takes out full page ad to thank Milwaukee fans

Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

Corey Hart played in the Milwaukee Brewers organization for nine seasons before signing with the Seattle Mariners this off-season. He has been riddled with knee injuries the last couple years, missing the entire 2013 season. Through it all and through that frustration, Hart appears to have left Milwaukee on nothing but good terms.

This morning Hart took out a full page newspaper ad to thanks fans for their support while he was in Milwaukee (courtesy of the Milwaukee Brewers Twitter account):

Hart has played 130 games or more in only five seasons. His production in those years is solid: in each he hit at least 20 home runs and he had at least 80 RBI in each but one. Unfortunately it feels like he is always one more knee injury away from missing a significant portion of the season, but if he can stay on the field, the Mariners will have added a nice bat at a pretty reasonable price ($6 million base next season).

There will an adjustment period for Hart because he has spent his entire career in the National League, but there will be many people cheering for him to get acclimated quickly and have a bounce-back season…including the fans in Milwaukee.
