Logan to join Miller Park Walk of Fame

Former Milwaukee Braves shortstop Johnny Logan, a four-time All-Star who has worked in recent years to preserve the memory of the city’s only World Series winner, will be honored this year with a spot on the Miller Park Walk of Fame.

Logan, 85, was the only former Braves and Brewers player to receive the requisite 65 percent in a vote of Wisconsin media and Brewers officials. The Brewers, who dropped the cutoff from 75 percent to 65 percent after two straight years with no inductees, did not immediately announce a date for Logan’s ceremony.

“This is a very special honor for me to be honored in this great city, especially for this New York boy,” Logan said in a statement.”I want to thank the greatest fans in baseball, and everyone in the media and community, for their support.”
