He's been doing this for 46 years, 44 with WTMJ.
Yet Milwaukee Brewers Hall of Fame radio voice Bob Uecker always finds something new, an extra element about the first game fo the season - like today's Opening Day against the San Francisco Giants.
"There's always something extra about Opening Day. Especially for those of us who lived in this area," said Uecker to 620 WTMJ's "Jeff Wagner" during "Opening Day Live." Uecker grew up a few short miles from the site of Miller Park.
"This is always a special day."
It's also almost always a cold day, which Uecker has long been used to.
"The one thing I'm looking for as far as reports as the Iditarod finishing here about a mile from the ballpark. That will be a good time," he deadpanned in typical Uecker style.
"I remember days when it was so cold, snowing, the game had to be stopped...you couldn't see it anymore."
That's no longer an issue for "Mr. Baseball" with the roof at Miller Park. Missing the game always is an issue for him after the last pitch in October.
"Any player or any broadcaster, once a season is over and you're out for about 2-3 weeks, that's always nice," said Uecker.
"Even at that, a month after the season's over, I'm ready to rock."
He quipped about what he does to train for another year of broadcasts on 620 WTMJ.
"Arizona, I go to this place, I do senior citizen's broadcast. They don't even use a ball. They write on a piece of paper what they would do, and I broadcast it."
Uecker doesn't do all 162 games anymore like past years, and when he doesn't participate, he misses it.
"When I first started (scaling back), it was tough," he said.
"I know at some point, we all have to back off. I get a kick out of working with new guys, guys like Jeff Levering and Lane Grindle. I'm happy for guys like Joe Block, Jim Powell, Cory Provus and Pat Hughes, guys who went on to No. 1 jobs."
Uecker keeps coming back to do games, especially because Milwaukee is his hometown, and also because he sees how the city has always embraced the sport.
"This has always been a great baseball city...Milwaukee takes a back seat to nobody."
