Mr. Baseball has called all but one year of Brewers baseball, and who knows when he'll stop. One thing is for certain though, he won't leave the game by retiring.
2009 marked Ueck's 54th year around the game of baseball since he entered the MLB as a rookie.
He was inducted into the Radio Hall of Fame in 2001 and has a place in Cooperstown, by being awarded the 2003 Ford C. Frick Award.
His face is just as familiar as his voice. Mr. Belvedere, The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson, Major League I, II, and III and all his Miller Lite commercials have made him even more famous.
Uecker is already in the two Hall of Fame's for his voice, but Uecker will tell you that he should be in the Hall of Shame for his playing career.
-"I had two career highlights; I got a walk from Sandy Koufax, and I got out of a rundown versus the Mets."
-"I led the league in 'go get 'em next times'."
-"I set records that will never be broken, I hope 90 percent never get printed."
There are too many Major League quotes that are tops in my book, and would take to long to write them all. That movie is one of the all-time funniest.
Uecker has called just one World Series for the Brewers, but has sat in during many more on NBC. He certainly deserves to call another one for Milwaukee.
The two most known calls from Bob Uecker:
-"Get up, Get up, Get outta here, GONE!!"
-"Heeeeeeeeyy!! Struck him out swinging/looking."
But back to his Miller Lite commercials; this is one guy who must definitely "be in the front row", of the broadcasting world.
