UPDATE: The Coach Sauer Foundation Board has decided to cancel the group’s
annual fund-raising dinner, scheduled for Oct. 7, due to the current Covid
pandemic concerns and Madison/Dane County Public Health Department Covid

We hope you will join us in 2022 when we celebrate the fifth anniversary of The Coach Sauer Foundation.
Thank you for your understanding and continued support
Baseball Hall of Famer Paul Molitor will be the featured guest at the Coach
Sauer Foundation dinner at Bergamont Country Club Oct. 7.
Molitor, a seven-time all-star during a 21-year baseball career that included 14
years in Milwaukee, was the World Series Most Valuable Player while playing for
the champion Toronto Blue Jays in 1993. He had a .306 career batting average,
collected 3319 hits in his career and set a World Series record for most hits in
a game (5) while playing for the Brewers in the 1982 World Series. The Brewers
have retired his number four. Molitor put together a 39-game hitting streak, the
fifth longest in modern major league history while playing for Milwaukee’s “Team
Streak” in 1987.
Molitor collected his 3,000th hit while playing for his home state Minnesota
Twins. Molitor played three years for the Twins before retiring in 1998. He also
managed Minnesota from 2015-18 and was named the American League manager of the
year in 2017.
The dinner begins at 6:30 p.m. with a reception featuring silent auction items
at 5:30 p.m.
Other guests for the evening include Jim Paschke, who is retiring after 35 years
as the television voice of the world champion Milwaukee Bucks. Paschke was the
TV voice of the Brewers in 1987 and called Juan Nieves’ no-hitter, the only
no-hitter in Brewers history, and the games of Molitor’s 39-game hit streak.
The annual fund-raising dinner will also feature a silent auction. Tickets are
$125 for individuals and $1,000 for a table. They are available for purchase at
