Milwaukee Brewers area scout Harvey Kuenn, Jr. was inducted into the Midwest Scouts Association Hall of Fame this past weekend. A banquet was held on Saturday evening at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City, Missouri.

“Harvey is very deserving of this honor and we congratulate him on his induction into the Midwest Scouts Association Hall of Fame,” said Brewers Director of Amateur Scouting Bruce Seid. “He works tirelessly in this profession and is a valuable asset to the Brewers organization. He is a Brewer through and through.”

Kuenn, Jr. has worked as an area scout with the Brewers since 1990. He is responsible for scouting in the following states: Iowa, Illinois, Minnesota, Missouri and Wisconsin.

Kuenn, Jr., the son of former Brewers manager Harvey Kuenn, was drafted by the Montreal Expos in the 20th round of the 1977 June Draft. He spent two seasons as an outfielder in the Minor Leagues with Montreal (1977) and Milwaukee (1978).

Harvey resides in New Berlin, Wisconsin with his wife, Jane.
