The Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown New York is one of the hardest places to enter in all of sports. Some of the games greatest stars have to wait years to be voted in. Even Willie Mays and Hank Aaron were not unanimous choices. Currently there are five players who have played with the Brewers in Cooperstown. Here are five active Milwaukee Brewers who could join Robin Yount and the other Brewer legends.
Gomez is one of the most exciting players in the game today. He not only plays Gold Glove defense in centerfield, but has gotten better each year at the plate. Everything he does on the field is done with 100 percent effort. If he can continue to rack up Gold Gloves, he may one day have an opportunity to etch his name among the games greats.
Offensive productivity at the catching position is rare, but Lucroy has become an offensive force. Currently he is one of the most feared catchers in the game. With plenty of major league time ahead of him, he has a chance to produce at the plate as well as some of the best catchers in history.
In the midst of his 17th big league season, Ramirez has said that he would like to play for three more years. If he were to play that long, he is sure to finish with over 400 home runs, 1,500 RBIs and 2,500 hits. Throughout his careers he has been one of the biggest run producers in the National League. If he produces for a few more seasons, he is certain to receive some Cooperstown consideration.
Since Braun entered the league in 2007, he has been a star. He has 225 home runs, a .311 career batting average, and has racked up over 1,200 hits. Were it not for his PED allegations and suspension he would be a definite Hall of Famer. If players like Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens or Mark Mcgwire eventually get voted in, Braun will one day get his shot, too.
It is hard to believe that Rodriguez is playing in his 14th year as a professional and is just 32-years-old. His 333 career saves already give him the 12th most of all time. By the end of this season, he could easily move into the top-10. If he can stay in healthy and active in the league for another decade, he has potential to pass Mariano Rivera as the game's greatest closer.
