  • Johnny Logan passes away

    Former Milwaukee Braves great Johnny Logan died Friday night at Clement J. Zablocki VA Medical Center
    at 86.

    Logan, who often paid visits to Miller Park and was there recently, was inducted in the Walk of Fame there last month. At the time, he was in failing health and attended the ceremony in a wheelchair.

    Logan, who had several health issues and was wheelchair-bound, entered the hospital Tuesday with circulation problems in his legs and feet. He developed an infection that eventually spread and led to his death.

    It's sad to hear this news. Logan was one of the best infielders of the 1950s and really peaked in the second half of that decade. Besides playing an important part in the Milwaukee Braves only World's Championship (1957), he was a 4-time National League all-star (1955, 1957, 1958, & 1959).

      Logan was a very good player. He had a bit more extra base pop than most middle infielders of his time, and was a good fielder. He came over to the Pirates in the early 60s and was a utility infielder for them for 3 years at the end of his career. A slightly different type of player than his contemporary Dick Groat, but very similar in overall value.
