The Walk of Fame commemorates some of the greatest names in Milwaukee Brewers & Milwaukee Braves baseball history. It is located on the plaza area outside of Miller Park, starting near the statues of Robin Yount and Henry Aaron. Each inductee is honored with a granite-shaped home plate set in the ground.
The Walk of Fame is selected by a committee of approximately 100 Wisconsin media members and Brewers officials. 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 are eligible for consideration. 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.
