Bob Uecker is a former Major League Baseball player, who later became a sportscaster. Uecker was given the title of "Mr. Baseball" by TV talk show host Johnny Carson. Uecker grew up watching the minor-league Milwaukee Brewers at Borchert Field. He signed a professional contract with his hometown Milwaukee Braves in 1956 and made his major league debut as a catcher with the club in 1962. Uecker also played for the St. Louis Cardinals (and was a member of the 1964 World Champion club) and Philadelphia Phillies before returning to the Braves, who had by then moved to Atlanta. His six-year major league career concluded in 1967. Perhaps the biggest highlight of Uecker's career was when he hit a home run off of future Hall-of-Famer Sandy Koufax. Uecker himself has joked that he always thought that home run would keep Koufax from getting into the Hall of Fame. After retiring as a player, Uecker returned to Milwaukee. In 1971, he began calling play-by-play for the Milwaukee Brewers' radio broadcasts, a position he holds to this day. He also served as a color commentator for network broadcasts of Major League Baseball, helping call games for ABC in the 1970s and NBC in the 1990s. During that time, he was a commentator for several League Championship Series and World Series.
