MILWAUKEE — Whether it's his latest twitter skit...

"Hi over here at beautiful Franklin Field," Tim Dillard says. "There's milk everywhere. I love milk. I'm lactose intolerant. But that's not going to stop this guy!"

Or his dead-on Harry Caray impression. Tim Dillard loves to have fun.

"I feel like social media should be just one big group text message," Dillard says. "I know it's completely toxic and negative. But there's still a small slice of people that wanna be normal and just go hey, why don't we have fun with this!"

The former Brewers fan favorite is now with the Milwaukee Milkmen. He is 37 years old and is in his 18th-year of professional baseball. All that, and he as a major beard!

"Yeah, zoom in!" Tim Dillard says. "I was actually about to cut it, and before I got a phone call. I mean this was like five days ago. They were like hey, do you want to come to Milwaukee and play? And I was like, literally like? ZZZ, like hello? Oh, baseball, honey I can't cut the beard. I gotta go, you know!"

And during a pandemic? There's enough gloom and doom. Whether at his pro level, or high school...he just wants sports to be an outlet, for those that need a lift.

"If you can play sports? Do it, I mean whatever that looks like," Dillard says. "My kids are playing sports. We're relational beings. I mean, for the last 5 or 6 months, it's been tough. On everybody. At all ages."
