MILWAUKEE — Bob Uecker, the longtime voice of the Milwaukee Brewers, will be inducted into the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) Hall of Fame in Las Vegas Tuesday, April 17th.

Uecker is in his 42nd year calling play-by-play. The former-player-turned-broadcaster has completed 30 seasons as the club’s lead announcer and is celebrating his 57th year in professional baseball in 2012.

Uecker was inducted into the Radio Hall of Fame in 2001 and honored with the National Baseball Hall of Fame’s Ford C. Frick Award for broadcast excellence in 2003.  The five-time Wisconsin Sportscaster of the Year is also in the Wisconsin Sports Hall of Fame.  During his days as a player, Uecker was a member of the 1964 St. Louis Cardinals World Series Championship team.

Uecker will miss Tuesday’s Brewers game at Miller Park to attend the induction ceremony.
