BF: Hi Brooks! Thanks for taking the time...

BK: Are you kidding? This is my pleasure... let's do it!

BF: Tell the truth now, are you familiar with

BK: Oh, absolutely. I never had time to read through the threads or anything when I was playing, but my mom visited a lot when I played for the Brewers. All of the players are aware of the site, there's no doubt about it.

BF: Brooks, you're probably the second-most popular Brewer ever at Brewerfan... would you like to guess who's first?

BK: Oh man... I'd have to say Leskanic.

BF: Leskanic? Nope... it's Russell Branyan, then you.

BK: I can see that with Branyan, that's probably because of those bombs he hits.

BF: Why Leskanic.

BK: Oh wow, that guy's a character. I lived in the same apartment building with him one year, he's really something else.

BF: Brooks, let's talk about college... you won the Dick Howser Trophy twice - I think that's incredible.

BK: Yeah, it is pretty cool, looking back at it. At the time, I was honored to win it, but I really didn't grasp how special that is. I never won the Golden Spikes, but I won that one two times... it means a lot more to me now.

I was also part of the inaugural class of the NCAA Baseball Hall of Fame
