Brewers announce parking lot renamed in Johnny Logan's honor

|

MILWAUKEE, WI - The Milwaukee Brewers will rename the media/staff parking lot at Miller Park in honor of former Milwaukee Braves All-Star shortstop Johnny Logan. Logan was inducted into the Brewers Walk of Fame last season.
 
The "Logan Lot" joins 12 other parking lots around Miller Park that were renamed prior to the 2010 season in honor of some of the city's baseball legends. The lots are adorned with the names of former Milwaukee Brewers and Braves players, with banners and other artwork notating the baseball greats. Uniformed members of the Brewers and Braves Walk of Fame are represented, with the first 12 parking lots named after Henry Aaron, Cecil Cooper, Rollie Fingers, Jim Gantner, Harvey Kuenn, Eddie Mathews, Paul Molitor, Don Money, Warren Spahn, Gorman Thomas, Bob Uecker and Robin Yount. 
 
Logan played in Milwaukee from 1953 - 1961 and appeared in four All-Star Games as a member of the Braves. For his 13-year career, Logan hit .268 with 93 home runs and 547 RBI. He was a member of the Braves World Series Championship team in 1957 and the National League Championship team in 1958. Logan was signed by the Boston Braves in 1947 and made his Major League debut with Boston in 1951. After playing in Milwaukee, he played three seasons with the Pittsburgh Pirates.
 
Logan, a former area scout with the Brewers, passed away on August 9, 2013.
