Brewers Announce Plans for Installation of “Brewers Wall of Honor” at Miller Park

The Milwaukee Brewers today announced plans for the creation of the “Brewers Wall of Honor” in 2014 at Miller Park.  The Wall of Honor will commemorate Milwaukee Brewers players, coaches and executives who meet a set criteria based on service to the club and/or career accomplishments.

The Wall of Honor will be a permanent exhibit on an exterior Miller Park wall next to the Hot Corner entrance.  Honorees will be recognized with a bronze plaque affixed to the wall, with their image and a brief synopsis of their Milwaukee baseball career etched onto the marker.

The plaques are designed by Matthews International, designers of the plaques for the National Baseball Hall of Fame as well as the plaques on the Milwaukee Braves Wall of Honor at Miller Park.  I have seen some renderings of the plaques and they look amazing.  This will be a great addition to Miller Park and will give a nostalgic look at some of our favorite players in team history.

“The Wall of Honor is designed to honor the many individuals who either spent a significant portion of their career with the Brewers, or have a significant legacy with the organization through various achievements,” said Brewers Chief Operating Officer Rick Schlesinger. “It’s designed as a complement to our Miller Park Walk of Fame, as well as our statues.”

Individuals who meet any of the following criteria during their time with the Milwaukee Brewers organization will be inducted into the Wall of Honor:

  •  2,000 or more plate appearances
  • 1,000 or more innings pitched
  • 250 appearances as a pitcher
  • Winner of a major award (MVP, Cy Young, Rookie of the Year, or Fireman of the Year)
  • Manager of a pennant-winning team
  • Individuals memorialized with statues on the Miller Park Plaza
  • Members of the National Baseball Hall of Fame who played for or managed the Brewers

Currently, there are 58 persons who meet the above criteria. This group of 58 will be recognized on the Brewers Wall of Honor during the 2014 season with an induction ceremony at Miller Park, scheduled for Friday, June 13. Honorees and their guests (as well as representatives of those who are deceased) will be invited to attend the unveiling ceremonies, as well as recognized during a program on the field prior to the game.

In addition to the 58 members of the inaugural class, there are seven active players in Major League Baseball that meet the criteria.  Upon retirement, players who meet the criteria will be added annually to the Wall of Honor.

The complete list of players who will grace the Brewers Wall of Honor at the unveiling ceremony in June of 2014 is as follows:

  • Hank Aaron
  • Jerry Augustine
  • Sal Bando
  • Chris Bosio
  • Johnny Briggs
  • Jeromy Burnitz
  • Mike Caldwell
  • Bill Castro
  • Jeff Cirillo
  • Jim Colborn
  • Cecil Cooper
  • Craig Counsell
  • Chuck Crim
  • Rob Deer
  • Cal Eldred
  • Mike Fetters
  • Rollie Fingers
  • Jim Gantner
  • Moose Haas
  • Bill Hall
  • Darryl Hamilton
  • Teddy Higuera
  • John Jaha
  • Geoff Jenkins
  • Harvey Kuenn
  • Sixto Lezcano
  • Pat Listach
  • Mark Loretta
  • Davey May
  • Bob McClure
  • Paul Molitor
  • Don Money
  • Charlie Moore
  • Jaime Navarro
  • Dave Nilsson
  • Ben Oglivie
  • Dan Plesac
  • Darrell Porter
  • Ken Sanders
  • George Scott
  • Kevin Seitzer
  • Bud Selig
  • Richie Sexson
  • Ben Sheets
  • Ted Simmons
  • Jim Slaton
  • B.J. Surhoff
  • Don Sutton
  • Gorman Thomas
  • Bill Travers
  • Bob Uecker
  • Jose Valentin
  • Greg Vaughn
  • Fernando Vina
  • Pete Vukovich
  • Bill Wegman
  • Bob Wickman
  • Robin Yount

John Axford, Ryan Braun, Prince Fielder, Yovani Gallardo, J.J. Hardy, Corey Hart and Rickie Weeks are the seven active players that, as of today, qualify for induction into the Wall of Honor following their retirement.  Active players closing in on the thresholds include Jonathan Lucroy and Carlos Gomez.

Further details about the ceremony on June 13, 2014 will be announced at a later date.

Ryan Braun, Michael Blazek and Marcus Hanel at Today’s Hunger Task Force Food Drive

Mb-13 BCF-HTF Thanksgiving Social Graphic-Food Drive

It was a very busy and cold morning at Helfaer Field today.  As the Thanksgiving week continued, Brewers Community Foundation teamed up with Hunger Task Force and CBS 58 for a drive-thru food drive in the parking lot.  Since I am finally thawing out from three hours in the sub-20 degree temperatures this morning, I thought I would post some photos from the activities this morning.

Ryan Braun, Michael Blazek and Marcus Hanel were on hand along with a number of Brewers employees collecting food and handing out bobbleheads to donors.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The food drive itself lasts until 6 p.m. tonight, so you can still donate throughout the day.  It was a wonderful event and I was happy to be a part of it.  The generosity I saw throughout the activities this week was awesome.  This community should be proud of the way it gives back.

Don’t forget, you can also help the Hunger Task Force through the online “turkey hands” auction.  The framed, original designs from Brandon Kintzler, Tyler Thornburg, Jonathan Lucroy and Jim Henderson are up for auction now on Brewers.com thru Sunday, December 1 at 11:59 p.m. CT.
