Brewers make a wish come true for a young fan

Eddie Kimminau is like any 8-year old from Big Bend, Wis. He enjoys playing sports, spending time with family and friends, and he loves the Packers and Brewers. However, the Brewers fan was born with Morquio syndrome, a progressive disorder arresting growth and causing severe bone disease in young children.

Kimminau has already had eight surgeries because of the disease, including recent hip, knee and ankle surgeries in both legs. Through Make-A-Wish Foundation, Eddie was able to throw out the first pitch at wednesday's Brewers game, and spend time with Brewers radio announcers Joe Block and Bob Uecker.
