Uecker returns to the Brewers radio booth

Just three months after heart surgery,the Milwaukee Brewers Hall of Fame radio broadcaster Bob Uecker will be back behind the microphone this Friday when the Washington Nationals visit Miller Park.

In his 40th season broadcasting Brewers games, the 75-year-old Uecker underwent surgery April 30 to replace his aortic valve, aortic root and part of his ascending aorta.

Uecker, who displayed his customary humor during a guest appearance on the air June 24 in the second inning of the Brewers’ game against the Minnesota Twins, will hold a news conference prior to Friday’s game.

I’m sure many listeners share my sentiment when I say that it will be great to hear those famous words, “Play Ball!”
