Uecker honored with statue in Milwaukee

Bob Uecker has been many things in his lifetime -- MLB player, WWF announcer, actor in Major League and the '80s sitcom Mr. Belvedere, to name a few -- but above all, he's been synonymous with Milwaukee Brewers baseball as their radio announcer since 1971.

Uecker received the Hall of Fame's Ford Frick Award in 2003 and this week, he's being honored at Miller Park. The Brewers unveiled a seven-foot statue of his likeness, and Henry Aaron, Commissioner (and former Brewers owner) Bud Selig and a number of other luminaries were there to take part in the ceremony.
