Brewers broadcaster Bob Uecker hit in the head during batting practice, hospitalized
MILWAUKEE — Milwaukee Brewers broadcaster Bob Uecker had to spend the night in the hospital on Monday night, June 15th after he was hit in the head by a baseball during batting practice.
WTMJ radio says a pop-up hit Uecker prior to Monday night’s Brewers-Kansas City Royals game. The 81-year-old broadcaster worked the first six innings of the game and started feeling dizzy.
Team doctors checked him out and sent him to Froedtert Hospital. He was diagnosed with a mild concussion and remained in the hospital overnight.
Uecker says he’ll see how he’s feeling Tuesday afternoon before deciding whether to call the game Tuesday night.
