A talented athlete, Sveum was an All-State and All-American quarterback while attending Pinole Valley High School(CA), in addition to being a fine baseball player. Drafted by the Milwaukee Brewers in the 1st round (25th pick) of the 1982 amateur draft as a shortstop and third baseman, he turned down a baseball and football scholarship to Arizona State University in order to sign with the team.[citation needed] He went on to play 12 seasons in MLB, hitting .236 with 69 home runs.

Sveum's best season came in 1987, when he hit 25 home runs and drove in 95 runs while batting mostly in the ninth spot in the Brewers' lineup. On April 19 (Easter Sunday), he hit a walkoff home run at County Stadium to give Milwaukee a 6-4 victory over the Texas Rangers, their twelfth in a row. The moment is perhaps the greatest of Sveum's career, and the game one of the most remembered in Brewers history. Later that year, he enjoyed the best single game of his career when, on July 17, he hit three home runs and had six RBI, leading his team to a 12-2 thumping of the California Angels.

The following season, Sveum had a career-threatening collision with teammate Darryl Hamilton in which his leg was broken. He missed the rest of the 1988 season and all of the 1989 season. He was never the same player after the incident, and was replaced on the Milwaukee roster by Gary Sheffield. Darryl Quinn Hamilton (born December 3, 1964 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana) is a former Major League Baseball outfielder who played for the Milwaukee Brewers (1988, 1990-95), Texas Rangers (1996), San Francisco Giants (1997-98), Colorado Rockies (1998-99) and New York Mets (1999-2001). ...

Prior to his role as coach in Milwaukee, Sveum was employed by the Boston Red Sox. He was third base coach in Boston for some time, including during the team's 2004 World Series victory. Over the course of his stay with Boston, Sveum's propensity for sending runners home, even - and perhaps especially - when it was a bad, earned him the nickname "Send 'em home Sveum."

Addict Baseball and Football Forum - Sveum named Brewers' third base coach (3172 words)
Sveum was selected by the Brewers in the first round (25th overall) of the 1982 draft and made his Major League debut for Milwaukee on May 12, 1986, at Seattle.
Sveum was the Brewers starting shortstop during the exciting 1987 season, and hit quite possibly the most famous home run in Brewers history, propelling the team to victory with a two-run home run in the ninth inning on Easter Sunday leading the team to their 12th consecutive victory opening the 1987 season.
Dale Sveum, who was criticized in his two seasons in Boston for having numerous runners thrown out at the plate, was hired by the Brewers to be their third base coach.
