Bob Uecker Statue

Last week Bob Uecker, “Mr. Baseball”, the voice of the Milwaukee Brewers, was honored at Miller Park with a statue in celebration of the 50th anniversary of his major league debut with his hometown Milwaukee Braves. His radio highlights are hilarious and we have some of his Brewers memories on the “Bob Uecker, Mr. Baseball” CD tribute.  We also have in our collection the film “Major League”, where Harry Doyle is played by Bob Uecker, and the TV series “Mr. Belevedere” where he plays George Owens. Uecker is also the author of “Catcher in the Wry”, a book about his baseball career including his World Series season with the St. Louis Cardinals.
