The Brewers start the spring training portion of the 2014 season with a game against Oakland on February 27.  They will take on Atlanta in their home opener on March 31.

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The Brewers plan to create a "Wall of Honor" at Miller Park in 2014 to commemorate noted players, coaches and executives.

Criteria would be based on service to the club or career accomplishments, such as winners of major awards; managers of pennant-winning teams; or players with 2,000 or more plate appearances or 1,000 or more innings pitched.

It would cover 58 Brewers, including Hall of Famers Hank Aaron, Rollie Fingers, Paul Molitor and Robin Yount. The list also includes less recognized names like Jeremy Burnitz, John Jaha and Fernando Vina.

Honorees will be invited for an induction ceremony on June 13, when Milwaukee hosts Cincinnati.

The Wall would be in addition to the team's retired numbers for the four Hall of Famers, displayed on a ring above the scoreboard.
