Former Milwaukee Braves SS Logan receives honor


MILWAUKEE (WKOW) – Former Milwaukee Braves shortstop Johnny Logan will be inducted into the Miller Park Walk of Fame this summer.

Logan played in Milwaukee from 1953 to 1961.  Over his 13-year career he hit .268 with 93 home runs and 547 RBI.  He played in four All-Star Games as a Brave and was a member of the Braves World Series championship team in 1957 and the National League championship team in 1958.

Wisconsin sports reporters and Brewers executives were among the voters who gave Logan over 72 percent of the vote in the Walk of Fame balloting.

Logan says it's a very special honor for a New York boy to be honored in the great city of Milwaukee.

Other inductees to the Walk of Fame include Hank Aaron, Paul Molitor and Robin Yount.
