Brewers to Put Uecker Statue in Last Row (Of Course)


How approrpriate....

The Milwaukee Brewers announced Wednesday afternoon they are going to honor legendary team broadcaster Bob Uecker.

Yeah, that guy.

The team decided a statue of Uecker, a former Major League baseball player (catcher) who's been calling Brewers games for decades and is also known for a bit part in the movie Major League along with a series of Miller Lite commercials back in the 1980's.

And of course, the statue will be located at the very top of Miller Park.

According to a Brewers press release, the seats will be in row 422 of the Uecker seats on the Terrace Level.

Yes, obviously we like Uke--though we are aware those of you youngin's reading this may not know who he is.

If you are a baseball fan, you should know about him. If you don't, shame on you.

Congrats to the original "Mr. Baseball" for an honor well earned.
