No inductees to Walk of Fame in ’12

For the second consecutive year, no former Brewers or Braves players earned enough votes for induction into the Miller Park Walk of Fame. Candidates must be named on 75 percent of the returned ballots to be elected.

Former Braves shortstop Johnny Logan came closest, appearing on 24 of 39 ballots for 61.5 percent of the vote. Former Brewers also finishing with a strong showing were Teddy Higuera (51.3 percent, 20 votes) and Geoff Jenkins (48.7 percent, 19 votes). This was Jenkins’ first year on the ballot.

Nine former Brewers but no Braves did not exceed the necessary 5 percent of the vote to remain on the 2013 ballot.

There were nine Braves and 34 Brewers on this year’s ballot. The ballots included on-field personnel who wore a Brewers or Braves uniform for a minimum of three seasons but have been retired from playing/managing roles for at least three seasons.

Past winners of the honor 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.
