Milwaukee Brewers Walk of Fame

Milwaukee Brewers Walk of Fame


The Milwaukee Brewers Walk of Fame was established in 2001 with the opening of Miller Park. Although the Milwaukee Brewers do not have an official Hall of Fame, the honor of induction into the Walk is considered to be the equivalent. Each member of the Walk is honored with a home plate-shaped granite slab, featuring the member's name and signature, as well as years associated with Milwaukee. The slabs are arranged around Miller Park, circling the stadium and culminating with the Hank Aaron and Robin Yount statues in front of the home plate area of the park. Between 2001 and 2005, twelve members of the Milwaukee Brewers were inducted. After no new additions in 2006, three members of the former Milwaukee Braves were inducted in 2007.[1]

The voting process involves approximately 100 Wisconsin media members and Brewers officials. In 2007, a second ballot featuring members of Milwaukee Braves was also sent to voters. To be elected, nominees must receive 75% of the vote from all ballots received. Individuals must receive at least 5% of the vote to remain eligible in future years. Induction is limited only to players and officials who spend at least three years in Milwaukee.[2]

Candidates for future inductions include Brewers George Bamberger and Ben Oglivie, who each came within three votes of selection in 2007.
