The Milwaukee Brewers will honor Major League Baseball Commissioner and former Brewers owner Allan “Bud” Selig with a statue at Miller Park’s Home Plate Plaza.
Selig’s statue will join those of Hank Aaron and Robin Yount, which were both unveiled on April 5, 2001, the first year of Miller Park’s existence.
Selig brought baseball back to Milwaukee after the Braves left when he founded the Brewers. He also led the Brewers to seven “Organization of the year” awards and led the way in efforts to develop a new ballpark to replace County Stadium.
Selig’s statue will be unveiled on August 24th during a ceremony at Miller Park.
