Mr. Baseball

One of the great characters of the game, Bob Uecker, is slated to undergo heart surgery this week. If you aren’t familiar with Bob he is a former major league player who’s claim to fame is being a below average catcher. Really. He came to national prominence for his appearances on the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson and his Miller Lite commercials.

Bob Uecker currently is the Milwaukee Brewer’s radio voice and as any long-suffering Brewer’s fan will tell you that over the years many people listened to his broadcasts even when the team was playing badly (which was most of the 90’s and 00’s) because he has the gift of gab and will crack you up with his great stories. Here is a link to some of the wit and wisdom of Mr. Baseball.

Get well soon, Bob!

“Heywood leads the league in most offensive categories, including nose hair. When this guy sneezes, he looks like a party favor.”

Love Bob Uecker.
