Today In Brewer History: Robin Yount Hangs It Up

On this day in 1994, just a few days before Brewer pitchers and catchers were scheduled to report to spring training, Robin Yount announced his retirement.

He was only 38 years old but Yount had already played 20 major league seasons, debuting as an 18-year-old shortstop in 1974 and finishing up as an outfielder in 1993. Yount had hit .258/.326/.379 while playing primarily center field in his final season and recorded the final 117 of his franchise record 3142 hits.

Yount retired as a two-time American League MVP (1982 as a shortstop and 1989 as an outfielder), a three time Silver Slugger, a three time All Star and a one time Gold Glover. He led the league in doubles and triples twice each, and led the AL with 210 hits in 1982. He's still the Brewer all-time leader in nearly every category.
