For more than half his life, Bob Uecker has come on your radio through the airwaves of WTMJ to bring you the excitement, fun of Milwaukee Brewers baseball, along with a bunch of laughs along the way.

Thursday, the Milwaukee native, former Milwaukee Braves catcher and 44-year WTMJ Brewers radio voice turns 83-years-old!

No one has ever turned a .200 batting average into a beloved sports and entertainment career like our own Mr. Baseball.
