Schoendienst to join Milwaukee Braves Honor Roll

Hall of Famer Red Schoendienst will become the 14th member of the Milwaukee Braves Honor Roll when he is inducted on April 9 at Miller Park.

The 10-time All-Star will be honored by the Milwaukee Brewers and the Milwaukee Braves Historical Association in a 12 p.m. CT ceremony. Schoendienst, 92, will not be able to attend the unveiling of his place on the Honor Roll, which is located on the third-base side of the Miller Park Field Level Concourse.

Over 19 seasons in the Major Leagues, Schoendienst played for the Milwaukee Braves, St. Louis Cardinals and New York Giants. He played in 2,216 games, recorded 2,449 hits and had a career .289 average. He was voted into the Baseball Hall of Fame by the Veterans Committee in 1989.

He was traded from the Giants to the Braves in 1957 and led the National League in hits (200) that season, also helping the Braves to the World Series title that year and the NL pennant the following season.

Schoendienst was in the top 10 in the NL MVP Award voting four times, including a third-place finish in 1957. After his playing days were over, he managed the Cardinals to a World Series title in 1967 and an NL pennant in '68.

He joins Warren Spahn, Johnny Logan, Andy Pafko, Bobby Thomson, Bob Uecker, Felix Mantilla, Eddie Mathews, Joe Adcock, Frank Torre, Del Crandall, Hank Aaron, Gene Conley and Joe Torre on the Milwaukee Braves Honor Roll.
