Official: Braves’ Adcock To Be Honored

JoeAdcock

The Milwaukee Brewers today announced that former Milwaukee Braves first baseman, the late Joe Adcock, will be honored as the newest member of the Miller Park Walk of Fame in 2016.  A total of 34 votes were cast through media and panel voting, with Adcock receiving 23 votes (67.6%), exceeding the threshold of 65% needed for election.  Adcock fell just one vote shy of election last year.

Adcock spent 17 seasons in the Major Leagues, including 10 with the Braves.  His tenure in Milwaukee spanned from 1953 to 1962, as he batted .285 with 239 HR and 760 RBI in 1207 games.  Adcock notched a number of memorable feats while playing for the Braves.  On April 14, 1953, he recorded the first base hit and scored the first run in County Stadium history.  The following year, on July 31, 1954, he belted four home runs with a double at Brooklyn’s Ebbets Field, setting a single-game record of 18 total bases, which lasted 48 years.

“Joe always said that there was nowhere better to be a Major League ballplayer than the city of Milwaukee, and he had great ties to the area and even better memories of his time there,” said Joan Adcock, a Wisconsin native who met and married Joe while he was playing for the Braves.  “This is a tremendous honor, and I know Joe would be humbled and thrilled to be remembered in this way.”

Adcock was also a member of the Braves 1957 World Championship team.  He drove in the lone run in a 1-0 Game 5 World Series win vs. the New York Yankees.  The Braves went on to defeat the Yankees, four games to three.  On May 26, 1959, Adcock broke up Harvey Haddix’s 12-inning no-hitter with a walk-off double at County Stadium. Adcock ranks third in Milwaukee Braves history in hits (1206), home runs, RBI and total bases (2164).

“Joe Adcock was a key contributor to the great success enjoyed by the Braves during their storied tenure in Milwaukee, and we are very pleased to secure his legacy with a place on the Miller Park Walk of Fame,” said Brewers Chief Operating Officer Rick Schlesinger. “Joe’s contributions to the Braves were numerous, and he was responsible for some of the most memorable moments in Milwaukee baseball history. We look forward to remembering Joe with a ceremony this summer and a permanent marker at Miller Park.”

The induction of Adcock, who passed away in 1999, will take place prior to a game at Miller Park this summer, with the specific date to be determined later.  Family members including his widow, Joan, are expected to participate.

There were a total of 23 Brewers players and seven Braves players on the ballot. The ballot included on-field personnel who wore a Brewers or Braves uniform for a minimum of three seasons but have been retired from playing/managing roles for at least three seasons.  All players and managers receiving votes on at least 5% of the ballots will remain eligible in 2017.

Past inductees include Hank Aaron, Rollie Fingers, Paul Molitor, Robin Yount in 2001; Commissioner Bud Selig and Cecil Cooper in 2002; Bob Uecker and Harry Dalton in 2003; Jim Gantner and Gorman Thomas in 2004; Don Money and Harvey Kuenn in 2005; Eddie Mathews, Warren Spahn and John Quinn in 2007 (the first year that former Braves players appeared on the ballot); Lew Burdette in 2010, Johnny Logan in 2013, and Teddy Higuera in 2015.

Each inductee is honored with a granite plaque that is placed into the terrace area walkway that surrounds Miller Park.  The full results are as follows:
