Harvey Kuenn's plaque on the Brewers Walk of Fame

The Miller Park Walk of Fame was established by the Milwaukee Brewers baseball team in 2001 with the opening of Miller Park. It "commemorates some of the greatest names in Milwaukee baseball history,"[1] covering both the entire history of the Brewers (who have been in Milwaukee since 1970) and the earlier period during which the Milwaukee Braves were the local Major League team (1953–1965). 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. Through 2019, 20 members of the Milwaukee Brewers and Braves have been inducted.

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]
