The Wall of Honor will be a permanent exhibit on an exterior Miller Park wall adjacent 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.
“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.”
