Bob Uecker proves anyone can get a statue

20 Comments

Bob Uecker, who is in his 42nd year of calling Brewers games on the radio, had his statue unveiled at Miller Park on Friday in an event emceed by Bob Costas.

Speakers included Brewers owner Mark Attanasio, Dick Ebersol, Bud Selig and Hank Aaron, and Robin Yount sent in a taped message. Uecker’s statue will be the fourth outside Miller park, joining those of Selig, Aaron and Yount.

Of course, it wouldn’t have a proper Uecker ceremony without some humor:
