New Bob Uecker statue far from Miller Park’s front row

Executives from MillerCoors were on hand as well as a few generations of the Uecker family. To some of those family members, Uecker had a special thanks.

“Thank you very much for finally admitting I’m your father,” he said.

Of All People, Bob Uecker Claims That ‘Major League IV’ Is In The Works

Wesley Snipes could use the work.

“I’ll be honest with you, they’re talking about it,” Uecker said, according to Milwaukee Brewers beat writer Adam McCalvy. “The storyline is all set, too. They’ve already asked me if I would be in for ‘Major League IV,’ and I told them I would.

“I’ve talked to the directors. They’re talking about it and they’re pretty serious, but that’s all I can tell you, really. If there was more, I would tell you that, too. They have been talking about it for the last year-plus. As a matter of fact, they called me during the season last year and asked me if I would be in.” (Via Fox Sports)

The important question remains – can we please pretend like Major League: Back to the Minors never happened?

“’Major League III’ stunk, so ‘Major League IV’ I’m sure is going to be better than ‘Major League III,’ which they sold to a different company,” Uecker said. “That thing was on airplanes the day after we finished it.”
