Milwaukee (WQOW) -- The Milwaukee Brewers introduce Eric Thames as their new first baseman.
Thames will replace Chris Carter at first. Carter has been designated for assignment.
Thames has spent the last three seasons playing in Korea.
"I love Milwaukee," says Thames, "I love this city, I love this state, I played in La Crosse in 2007 [with the La Crosse Loggers of the Northwoods League] so you know, I have some experience out here, and the people are very nice and very hospitable, so you know, I thought it was a great choice."
