Uecker’s heart surgery a success

Good news on Ueck:

Brewers radio broadcaster Bob Uecker underwent successful heart surgery Friday in Milwaukee’s Froedtert Hospital, the team announced.

The procedure lasted six hours. Uecker will now remain hospitalized for about five to seven days, and a full recovery is expected to take 10-12 weeks, the release stated.
