Bob Uecker, the beloved broadcaster of the Milwaukee Brewers, has returned home from the hospital eight days after undergoing his second heart surgery this year, according to the Associated Press.

The surgery was to repair a tear from the valve replacement performed in April. A staph infection may have caused the complication.

Uecker, 75, popular as an actor as well, especially for his role as Harry Doyle in the “Major League” movies, is expected to be ready for spring training, which will be his 41st year broadcasting Brewers games.
