uecker385 Uecker to Undergo Surgery

Legendary Milwaukee Brewers broadcaster “Mr. Baseball” Bob Uecker is set to undergo his second heart surgery this year.  The procedure is scheduled for next Tuesday. Tests revealed a tear at the site of his previous valve replacement, which was performed back on April 30. Doctors believe the tear occurred due to a staph infection which entered the bloodstream about six weeks after the initial procedure. Recovery time for the procedure is expected to be at least eight weeks. The 75-year-old Uecker, in a statement through the Brewers, said he expects to be “ready to go well before spring training in Arizona.”
