This is great news!

The Milwaukee Brewers have announced that Bob Uecker, the voice of the team for the last 40 years who had heart surgery in April, will return to the 620WTMJ Brewers broadcast booth at Miller Park to call games starting Friday.

Uecker will call the play-by-play with Cory Provus beginning with Friday’s Brewers game with the Washington Nationals at 6:35 p.m. on Newsradio 620 WTMJ.

Doctors at Froedtert Hospital and the Medical College of Wisconsin repaired Uecker’s aortic aneurysm on April 30th, and he has spent most of the last three months recovering.

Uecker will give more details about his return at a press conference at 3:00 p.m. Friday before his return to the booth.

Maybe it can provide the team with a spark.
