Sheboygan man latest Packers Fan Hall of Famer

Published On: Mar 27 2013 07:24:15 AM CDT

GREEN BAY, Wis. -

A Sheboygan man who has had Green Bay Packers season tickets since the 1950s is the latest inductee into the Packers' Fan Hall of Fame.

Ninety-year-old Edward Fritsch was introduced as the 15th inductee Tuesday. He's a World War II veteran and retired mail carrier.

The Packers said although cold weather usually prevents Fritsch from attending late-season games, he did attend a game on New Year's Eve in 2011.

WLUK-TV reported 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.
