Robin Yount is perhaps the most iconic player in Brewers history. Any Brewers fan can tell you how much he meant to the teams he played on and to Milwaukee. Tonight, Yount was honored in a very special pre-game ceremony at Miller Park that celebrated the 20th anniversary of his retirement as a player. Also participating in the ceremony were fellow Hall of Famers Hank Aaron and Rollie Fingers, Brewers Chairman and Principal Owner Mark Attanasio and Brewers President of Baseball Operations Doug Melvin.
“Hard to believe it has been that long,” Yount said today. “That saying ‘The older you get, the faster time goes by,’ I can attest to that.”
Yount’s 20-year Major League career was spent entirely in Milwaukee and he retired after the conclusion of the 1993 season. His number 19 was retired in a ceremony on May 29, 1994 at Milwaukee County Stadium.
