Bob Uecker to Be Inducted into NAB Hall of Fame
Veteran baseball announcer is in 42nd year of doing play-by-play

"Mr. Baseball" is in his 42nd year of doing play-by-play for the Brewers, and has done color commentary on NBC and ABC.
Uecker is a former catcher with the Braves, Phillies and Cardinals who was a member of the 1964 St. Louis Cardinals World Series Championship team, but whose enduring baseball success came behind the mike rather than the plate.
Uecker was awarded the Baseball Hall of Fame's Ford Frick award in 2003, which goes annually to a broadcaster for "major contributions to baseball."
