Most folks know Bob Uecker from his TV appearances, commercials, and a certain movie about a Cleveland Indians team that couldn't win for losing. Some really lucky folks have had the pleasure of listening to Bob call Milwaukee Brewers games on the radio night after night. Perhaps it's because Milwaukee is a sort of out-of-the-way market, but Bob has never gotten the credit for his play-by-play work that he deserves. He is one of the five best p-b-p guys I've ever heard and definitely the funniest.
Yesterday Bob announced that he's going in for heart surgery Friday. We wish him nothing but the best and hope he's back callin' 'em "just a bit outside" from "the front row" soon.
