MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Hall of Fame relief pitcher Rollie Fingers made it back to Milwaukee for the Brewers' 1982 World Series reunion last night, and he didn't have to worry about being tracked down by the local revenue department.

Fingers was listed on the Wisconsin Department of Revenue's top 100 delinquent taxpayers in July 2006.

But he tells The Associated Press his tax issues have all been resolved.

He says it took about a year to resolve the issue.

Fingers says he did, in fact, pay taxes when he played in Milwaukee in the early 1980s.

As for the reunion, he says it's great to see his former teammates again.

Fingers was the American League's MVP and Cy Young Award winner in 1981.

He was injured late in the 1982 season and was unable to play in the playoffs.
