UNDATED (WSAU) Long-time Milwaukee Brewers radio play-by-play announcer Bob Uecker will reduce his on-air schedule for the upcoming baseball season. Uecker announced today he'll be behind the mic for all Brewers home games, and "select" road games.
Uecker, who tuned 80 earlier this month, said he's considered cutting back his travel schedule in recent years. He told Brewers flagship station WTMJ that he'll make "road trips that make sense," which would include cities that he enjoys visiting or where he can see friends. Uecker says he'll probably stay home for most west coast road trips.
Uecker travelled to Milwaukee to take part in a fan event last weekend. He's now back at his winter home in Arizona awaiting the start of spring training.
