Brewers announcer Bob Uecker honored for 50 years behind mic
MILWAUKEE (AP) — As expected, the ceremony honoring popular Brewers announcer Bob Uecker’s half-century at the microphone involved remembrances, appreciation — and a heavy dose of humorous stories.
At least the ones Uecker said he could share with an audience of family, friends, former players and team employees that spanned generations.
Uecker, a Milwaukee native affectionately known as “Mr. Baseball,” was honored Saturday with Bob Uecker Day in the city of Milwaukee and state of Wisconsin.
