Inscription.  The number one overall pick by the Brewers in the 1985 draft, Surhoff played the first nine of his 19 MLB seasons for the club. Splitting most of his time between left field, catcher and third base, Surhoff appeared at every position aside from pitcher during his tenure. Played in 1,102 games, collecting 1,064 hits and 524 RBI as a Brewer. Named the 1995 Brewers Player of the Year after finishing with the sixth-best batting average (.320) in the American League. Led A.L. catchers in assists (68) in 1991 and finished in the top five of the same category in 1987 and 1992. At the conclusion of his career with the Brewers, his 102 stolen bases ranked seventh-best in franchise history.
