GREEN BAY - A Sheboygan man who has had Green Bay Packers season tickets since the 1950s is the latest inductee into the team's Fan Hall of Fame.
Edward Fritsch, 90, was introduced as the 15th inductee Tuesday morning. Packers officials say Fritsch was nominated by his friend Randall Pfister.
"On Packers home game days, Ed routinely goes to the Tundra Tent before the game and gets the autograph of the Packer Alumni player on his cap," Pfister wrote in his nomination. "He has filled many caps over the years, and was surprised this year when Aaron Taylor asked him for his autograph first to thank him for his years of support."
Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy has called Fritsch "one of the oldest Packers fans still sitting outside in the bowl area at Lambeau Field." The team says although cold weather usually prevents Fritsch from attending late-season games, he did attend a game on New Year's Eve in 2011.
In addition to having his name permanently displayed in the Packers Hall of Fame, Fritsch will receive four club seats to a 2013 Packers home game, a $500 Packers Pro Shop gift certificate, a trip to a 2013 Packers away game and a one-year subscription to "Packers Plus."
Nine other people were finalists for induction.
Fritsch is a World War II veteran and was awarded a purple heart for injuries suffered during combat. A lifelong resident of Sheboygan, Fritsch retired as a mail carrier more than 25 years ago.
