(Milwaukee-AP) -- Several former Brewers, Braves and Packers met today at the Pfister Hotel in downtown Milwaukee to reminisce about their glory days.

The former greats included Robin Yount from the Brewers, Warren Spahn from the Braves and Willie Davis from the Packers.

They are in town for tomorrow's final game at County Stadium. They'll be part of a post-game celebration after the Reds and Brewers close out the 48-year-old stadium.

Spahn will throw out the ceremonial first pitch to Del Crandall. Spahn and Crandall were the pitcher and catcher for the Braves when County Stadium opened in 1953.

Spahn said he's worried he can't reach home plate anymore, so he's going to throw the ball from 30 feet away instead of 60. And Crandall said he's worried he won't be able to catch it anymore.
