MILWAUKEE -- Longtime Brewers hitter Corey Hart will be inducted into the Milwaukee Brewers Wall of Honor this Friday, June 30, the Brewers said Tuesday.
Hart will inducted at a 3:00 p.m. ceremony Friday at the team's facilities. There will also be a public ceremony prior to that night's game against the Miami Marlins.
The former outfielder and first baseman also announced Tuesday that he will retire from Major League Baseball as a Milwaukee Brewer. Hart will have a permanent plaque commemorating his career installed at Miller Park.
"A two-time All-Star, Hart spent nine of his 11 Major League seasons with the Brewers, batting .276 with 154 HR, 508 RBI and 83 stolen bases in 945 games," a news release from the team reads.
"The power-hitting outfielder/first baseman enjoyed five 20-homer seasons in Milwaukee, tied with four others for third-most in franchise history. Among the 38 players who have collected at least 2,000 plate appearances in a Brewers uniform, his .491 slugging percentage ranks sixth all-time."
