MILWAUKEE - The Milwaukee Brewers and the Milwaukee Braves Historical Association will induct Gene Conley into the Braves Honor Roll on Monday, May 6 at Noon. The Braves Honor Roll is located on the Miller Park Field Level Concourse along the third base side (near the Main Gate).
Conley pitched for the Milwaukee Braves from 1954 - 1958 and his Major League career lasted from 1952 - 1963. He was a member of the 1957 Braves World Series Championship team and a three-time MLB All-Star. In five of his 11 MLB seasons, Conley recorded ten or more wins and finished his career with a 91-96 record and 3.82 ERA. With the Milwaukee Braves, Conley was 42-43 with a 3.56 ERA.
