the bruce seid memorial patch

bruce seid was named the director of scouting for the milwaukee brewers in november of 2008.  prior to that, he had been an area scout and cross-checker for the brew crew after spending the early parts of his career scouting for the padres and pirates.

after seid died of a heart attack on september 2, 2014, the team added a memorial patch to their right sleeves in his honor.  you can see the patch on this 2015 topps museum collection ryan braun sepia parallel
seid had also spent a couple of years in the cubs' minor leagues in the early 1980's as an infielder, but didn't advance beyond the low-a ranks.  he was 53 years old when he died.
