Bob Uecker to be inducted into broadcasters’ hall of fame

Hey, sports fans! You LOVE me!

[National Association of Broadcasters] officials announced today that the play-by-play announcer known as “Mr. Baseball” will be inducted during a luncheon April 17 during NAB’s annual convention in Las Vegas.

The Brewers are scheduled for a home game against the Los Angeles Dodgers on the same day.

Didn't MLB have a vote concerning Uecker in the HoF about 20-25 years ago around the all-star game?

Ueck should be in the HOF for not cringing during this awful joke.

Let's face it, being on Mr Belvedere is more punishment than any award can counteract.
