I just spoke to Brewers radio man Cory Provus, who is thrilled to have his broadcast partner, Bob Uecker, returning to the booth beginning Friday. Uecker will address his workload that afternoon, but Provus’ understanding is that when he does call games, Uecker will resume his regular routine.
“He’ll have the Macha show, and he’ll call six innings and I’ll call three,” Provus said. “I’m really excited about it. I think everybody should be.”
Uecker has been on leave since undergoing heart surgery on April 30.
“I’m looking forward to hearing the first ‘Get up, get up, get out of here! Gone!’” Provus said. “It’s been a blast with Davey [Nelson] the last three months, and he’s been a huge help to me and the broadcast. It’s just the Bob is the Brewers. This is the voice of the franchise, and we miss him.”
Look for more on Uecker’s pending routine over at Brewers.com later today.
