Bummer: Bob Uecker to have a second heart surgery

Oct 14, 2010, 11:31 AM EST

It was depressing when Brewers’ announcer Bob Uecker had to undergo major heart surgery earlier this year. It was great when he recovered and returned to the booth. Now it’s depressing again:

The Milwaukee Brewers say that Newsradio 620 WTMJ Brewers voice Bob Uecker will undergo a second heart surgery on Tuesday.

The team said that a pseudoaneurysm – a tear – happened where his heart valve replacement is located.

Uecker is expected to need eight weeks to recover from the new surgery. He released a statement with the same optimistic take he had going into his last surgery.

Get well soon, Bob.

    Get well soon Bob, Milwaukee baseball isn’t the same without you.

    I see this as good news. He’s fixing his problem, extending his life potentially, and he’s doing it on the off season. Ueker is a man!
