Uke to Cut Down on Number of Road Games

And earlier this week I said to cherish this time as Brewers fans.  It was something like this that was on my “Worry List” for signs that while Uke loves his job and we as Brewers fans love the job Uke does, he’s not eternal, and time catches up with everyone.

Bob announced this morning he will only do all 81 home games, and a select number of games on the road.  (My hope being it is all in-division games at least.  That alone puts him behind the mic for another 35 to 40 games.)

The longtime voice of the Milwaukee Brewers won’t be doing every game this season on 620WTMJ, but he’ll be doing a majority of them.

“I’m going to do most of the games this year.  I’m going to start cutting back,” explained Uecker.

“59 years is going to be enough where I think I want to kick back and relax a little bit.  I’m going to make some of the (road) trips…but I’m going to spend most of my time, probably, at Miller Park doing the home games.  The west coast trips, I think I’m going to kind of cut back on.”

Uecker added “(Mark) Attanasio, he’s been telling me the last five years I should cut back, take some time off.  I never really wanted to do it.  I always enjoyed the trips, being around the guys.”

He said he would focus on trips where he could see many of his friends who he’s made in his decades in baseball.

“Until I have problems getting around…and I don’t have any problems, I’m going to stick around (broadcasting) and enjoy it.”

Uecker also maintains a winter home in Arizona, so he’ll be there for spring training.  No word if he’ll make the trip in June when the Brewers are currently set to play a four-game set against the D-Backs.
