The Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns have produced some of the best athletes in the country including Peanut Tillman, Jake Delhomme, Ron Guidry John Bandura, Paul Bako, Brandon Stokley and many more. One sport that produces a lot of talent for UL is baseball. Well, former Ragin Cajun catcher Jonathan Lucroy is retiring and will be inducted into the Milwaukee Brewers Hall of Fame this Saturday.
Lucroy was drafted in 2007 and began playing in MLB in 2010. He spent an amazing 12 years in MLB. Lucroy was a two-time All-Star, led the majors in doubles in 2014 (which is the most catchers in a single season in MLB history), has 752 hits, 77 homers, 358 RBIs, had a .288 batting average, and finished fourth in NL MVP voting in 2014.
Lucroy had an excellent career. He released a statement of his resignation today. Lucroy explained:
“I’m honored to retire a Milwaukee brewer and be inducted into the Wall of Honor alongside so many of the greats in this franchise. The Brewers and the city of Milwaukee have always held a special place in my heart, I feel comfortable and at home here. The fans have always hugged me and encouraged me. It’s a special experience playing in Milwaukee and I want to thank the fans, the front office and the baseball team for making my time in Milwaukee so memorable.”
Lucroy also played for the Rangers, Rockies, Athletics, Angels, Cubs, Red Sox, Nationals and Braves. However, his time with the Brewers will be remembered by fans the most, and rightly so because he was great in Milwaukee.
Lucroy will be inducted into the Brewers Hall of Fame on Saturday. But now he can enjoy his retirement and maybe play golf. But either way, congratulations to the former Ragin’ Cajun great on a stellar career.
