Inducted 1999

Paul Molitor became known as "The Ignitor" and played for the Milwaukee Brewers for 15 seasons. He came up as a shortstop in 1978 and played all infield positions and a couple outfield spots during his career with the Brewers.
Molitor combined speed, power and baseball savvy to become one of the biggest threats in baseball. He was a key ingredient in the Harvey's Wallbangers team that won the American League pennant.
Perhaps his best-known individual feat with the Brewers was his 39-game hitting streak. Molitor finished his career in Toronto, where he won a World Championship, and Minnesota, where he reached the 3,000 hit mark. But, Molitor decided to enter Cooperstown as a Brewer and was a member of the first class of the Walk of Fame outside Miller Park.
