Bob Uecker would be the first to admit his playing career would not have earned him induction into any Hall of Fame. The West Allis native came through sandlot ball to become a solid defensive, but weak hitting catcher for the Braves, Phillies and Cardinals.
Uecker made his name by doing comedy about his playing days. He later starred in the TV show "Mr. Belvidere" and appeared in "Major League" and other movies. He also became known as Mr. Baseball during his years of starring in Miller beer commercials.
Throughout his entertainment career, Uecker continued to do radio broadcasts of the Brewers. He served in that capacity for more than 30 years.
