This is a list of the greatest Milwaukee Brewers in history. The Milwaukee Brewers were originally called the Seattle Pilots, but moved to Wisconsin after one season in the Pacific Northwest. Bought by Bud Selig in 1970, the Brewers spent 29 seasons in the American League before moving to the National League in 1998. Throughout its history, the Brewers have teetered the line between mediocre and contender, with flashes of brilliance in some years. Some of the greatest Brewers of all time played on these memorable teams.

Spending his entire 20 year career with the Brewers, Robin Yount is considered by many to be the best Brewers player ever. A first ballot Hall of Famer, Yount had more hits than any player during the '80s with his highest total coming in a memorable 1982 campaign (210) that saw the Brewers reach their only World Series. Yount won a Gold Glove and his only AL MVP award in that same season. Yount is the franchise's current leader in games, at-bats, runs, hits, doubles, triples, home runs, RBIs, total bases, walks and strikeouts. He had his number 19 retired in 1994.

Spending 15 seasons playing in Milwaukee, Paul Moiltor is also considered one of the greatest Brewers of all time. Like Yount, Molitor was part of the 1982 American League Championship team. He was an All Star five times as a Brewer and is in the exclusive 3,000 hit club, an honor that led to his induction to the Hall of Fame in 2004. After he retired in 1998, Molitor had his number 4 retired by the Brewers in 1999.
