I'm elated to find out that Bob Uecker will return to the Brewers broadcast booth this Friday night as the Brewers host Washington. The announcement was made Wednesday morning. You'll recall Uecker had heart surgery back on April 30th.
I must say, he's been missed. Over the years, whether the Brewers were good or not, it was always fun to listen to a Brewer game because "Mr. Baseball" still made it enjoyable. That has been sorely lacking since late April.
Remember folks, Uke is 75 and won't be around forever, so enjoy him while you can. For the last 3 months we got a taste of what it's going to be like once Uke decides to hang it up for good. I think I speak for many when I say I don't look forward to that day.
By the way, you can catch Ueckers's return on WHBL Friday night with our coverage beginning at 6:35.
