Longtime Milwaukee Brewers broadcaster Bob Uecker will be inducted into the National Association of Broadcasters Hall of Fame on Tuesday.

Uecker is in his 42nd year doing play-by-play on the Brewers Radio Network. Other NAB Hall of Famers with baseball ties include Vin Scully, Jack Buck, Harry Caray and Mel Allen.

During his days as a player, Uecker was a member of the 1964 St. Louis Cardinals World Series Championship team.

The Brewers are honoring “Mr. Baseball” with a statue outside Miller Park near Home Plate Plaza. It will be dedicated Aug. 31.
