Bob Uecker Remembers Borchert Field, Milwaukee Brewers of the 1940s and ‘50s ☆

It was sheer delight last evening to play the Brewers game from the MLB.TV app on my PlayStation and then use the WTMJ radio broadcast for the audio.  Getting to listen to Bob Uecker and Joe Block in a relatively well-synched fashion with the game video was fantastic.  What a feature. Late in the broadcast, Uecker began to talk about going to Brewers games at Borchert Field in...

Bob Uecker says Major League IV could be on its way

Beloved Milwaukee Brewers broadcaster Bob Uecker may be recognized more for his fictional role as the voice of the Cleveland Indians than his real job.  Uecker played Harry Doyle in the Major League movies in arguably the greatest acting job ever by a baseball announcer.  (Curt Gowdy's work in The Naked Gun comes in at a close second.)  And even though Uecker is 79 years old...
