Milwaukee Brewers' Announcer Bob Uecker Will Be Returning To The Booth

Hall of Fame broadcaster Bob Uecker will be returning to the broadcast booth Friday after a three-month absence recovering from heart surgery. The 75-year-old voice of the Milwaukee Brewers had surgery on April 30 to replace his aortic valve, aortic root, and part of his ascending aorta.

His first game back will be a home game when the Nationals come to Miller Park, and Uecker is scheduled to hold a news conference prior to the game. It will be Uecker's first time in the booth since an appearance June 24 in the second inning of the Brewers' game against the Minnesota Twins.

This is Uecker's 40th season behind the mic for Brewers games. For non-Brewers fans, he was the voice behind the mic in the movie "Major League."
