ESPN baseball reporter Tim Kurkjian got to experience the Miller Park sausage race in all its glory last evening.

The results?

Not pretty.

How will he live with the shame? He'll manage.

Tim is a great reporter (and a great guy) and this was all in fun. In fact, the race may have been more fun than the game.

Brewers "Wall of Honor" attracts a cool crowd

Jun 13, 2014 -- 1:00pm

The Brewers are unveiling their "Wall of Honor" this weekend and the guest list is pretty cool. From the press release:

The Wall of Honor will be a permanent display outside of Miller Park on a wall on the North side of the ballpark.  Players on the Wall of Honor will each have a plaque with their photo and a brief synopsis of their playing career. The plaques are designed by Matthews International, designers of the plaques for the National Baseball Hall of Fame as well as the plaques on the Milwaukee Braves Wall of Honor at Miller Park.

According to the Brewers, players who meet any of the following criteria while wearing a Brewers uniform will be inducted into the Wall of Honor:

 -          2,000 or more plate appearances

-          1,000 or more innings pitched

-          250 appearances as a pitcher

-          Winner of a major award (MVP, Cy Young, Rookie of the Year, or Fireman of the Year)

-          Manager of a pennant-winning team

-          Individuals recognized with a statue on the Miller Park Plaza

-          Members of the National Baseball Hall of Fame who have played for the Brewers

Currently, there are 58 persons who meet the above criteria and will be recognized on the Brewers Wall during the 2014 season.  In addition to the 58 members of the inaugural class, there are seven active players in Major League Baseball that meet the criteria.  Upon retirement, players who meet the criteria will be added to the Wall of Honor.

 A total of 38 honorees are scheduled to attend the event six honorees will be represented by family members. The complete list of players who will grace the Brewers Wall of Honor at the unveiling ceremony today is as follows (attendees subject to change, those who will be present for the event are in BOLD, those who will be represented by a family member at the event are in ITALICS and those not able to attend the event are in PLAIN text):
