Former Milwaukee Braves shortstop Johnny Logan will be honored on Thursday as the newest member of the Miller Park Walk of Fame.
In January, the Milwaukee Brewers announced Logan received more than 72 percent of the vote in Walk of Fame balloting, which includes members of the media throughout Wisconsin as well as Brewers executives.
Logan’s election marks the first time since Lew Burdette (2010) that a player will be inducted.
Logan played in Milwaukee from 1953 – 1961 and appeared in four All-Star Games as a member of the Braves. For his 13-year career, Logan hit .268 with 93 home runs and 547 RBI. He was a member of the Braves World Series Championship team in 1957 and the National League Championship team in 1958.
Other past winners of the award include Hank Aaron, Rollie Fingers, Paul Molitor, Robin Yount in 2001; Commissioner Bud Selig and Cecil Cooper in 2002; Bob Uecker and Harry Dalton in 2003; Jim Gantner and Gorman Thomas in 2004; Don Money and Harvey Kuenn in 2005; Eddie Mathews, Warren Spahn and John Quinn in 2007 (the first year that former Braves players appeared on the ballot); and Lew Burdette in 2010.
Each inductee is honored with a granite plaque that is placed into the terrace area walkway that surrounds Miller Park.
