Brewers announce 2019 Wall of Honor class

April 05, 2019 - 5:03 pm

MILWAUKEE -- The Miwaukee Brewers Wall of Honor memorializes dozens the franchise's most iconic players, coaches and contributors. In 2019, that group will get a little bit bigger:

Weeks spent the longest time in Milwaukee of the three honorees -- 1,142 games over 11 seasons (2003-2014). The second baseman was a career .249 hitter with the Crew, belting 148 home runs and driving in 430 runs. He was a 2011 National League All-Star with the Brewers -- his only career All-Star appearance.

Like Weeks, Hardy also emerged onto the Major-League scene as a Brewer; he played 571 games over five seasons (2005-2009) in Milwaukee. During that time, he hit .262, drove in 265 runs and made the 2007 National League All-Star team. The shortstop went on to earn All-Star, Silver Slugger and Gold Glove accolades with the Baltimore Orioles.

Unlike Weeks and Hardy, Hoffman ended a Hall of Fame career in Milwaukee. In two seasons (2009-2010), the closer made 105 appearances. In 2009, he was a National League All-Star (his seventh such distinction) and posted a 1.83 with 37 saves. In 2010, his final Major-League season, he enjoyed less success; he posted a 5.89 ERA and 10 saves before being supplanted in the ninth-inning role by John Axford.
