Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports that Brewers’ broadcaster Bob Uecker underwent a second successful heart surgery today at Froedtert Hospital in Milwaukee. The second procedure was necessary because Uecker developed a tear at the site of his valve replacement performed in late April.
“On behalf of the entire Brewers organization, we are relieved to know that Bob’s latest surgery went as planned, and we look forward to his complete and speedy recovery,” said Brewers principal owner Mark Attanasio. “As always, we look forward to having Bob back at spring training in a little more than four months from now.”
“Our family is thankful today’s surgery went as expected,” said Bob Uecker, Jr., son of the Hall of Fame broadcaster. “We again thank all of those who continue to provide support through expressions of concern and well wishes.”
Get well soon, Bob. We all look forward to seeing you in the booth again next season.
