Uecker statue dedicated at Miller Park

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- A statue of longtime Milwaukee Brewers radio broadcaster Bob Uecker has been dedicated outside Miller Park.

   The popular Uecker was joined by former teammate Hank Aaron and Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig for the event Friday night before the Brewers played Pittsburgh.

   Uecker is the fourth person to have a statue outside the main gates at the ballpark. Aaron, Selig and Hall of Famer Robin Yount also have them.

   Uecker was a light hitter in the majors, batting .200 for the Milwaukee Braves and other teams as a catcher over six seasons.

   He has been in the Brewers' radio booth since 1971.
