After re-signing with the Milwaukee Brewers earlier this week, Mike Moustakas has made another important move regarding his jersey number.
Last year, he wore No. 18 after being traded from Kansas City to Milwaukee. This year? He’ll be wearing No. 11, and he has an incredibly sweet reason for choosing that number.
Mike Moustakas is wearing No. 11 because it’s his mom’s favorite number and he wore it growing up. He was No. 18 down the stretch with the Brewers last year because his number with the Royals (8) was obviously taken, and so was 11 (Darnell Coles).

Did it just get dusty in here?
Moustakas is a locker-room favorite, and it’s not hard to see why. Moose clearly has a heart of gold.
