MILWAUKEE — The Milwaukee Brewers are commemorating the 20th anniversary of Robin Yount retirement next month.

Yount will participate in a pre-game ceremony Aug. 2 on the field before the Brewers face the Washington Nationals. He will be joined by former teammate and fellow Hall-of-Famer, Rollie Fingers.

Yount will also toss the ceremonial first pitch.

Yount's 20-year Major League career was spent entirely in Milwaukee and he retired following the 1993 season.

Yount finished his career with 3,142 career hits and was the first player to enter the National Baseball Hall of Fame as a Brewer in 1999. Yount won the American League Most Valuable Player awards in 1982 for shortstop and 1989 for outfield. He was third player to win that award at two different positions.
