ueckerBob Uecker has become “Mr. Baseball” to millions of Wisconsin radio listeners based on his play-by-play and humorous analysis of Milwaukee Brewers baseball since 1971.

His community involvement includes many charitable projects, perhaps best typified by the “Uecker Ride for the Arts” which has provided great recognition for the Arts in Milwaukee while raising thousand of dollars.
