Just in from the Brewers:
Milwaukee Brewers broadcaster Bob Uecker has been released from Milwaukee’s Froedtert Hospital after undergoing successful heart surgery last Tuesday.
“I want to thank the doctors and staff at Froedtert again for the terrific care throughout the surgery and recovery,” Uecker said. “I am encouraged to be going home and I appreciate the kind wishes from Brewers fans as I continue to recuperate.”
The surgery was performed by Froedtert & The Medical College of Wisconsin Cardiothoracic Surgeon Alfred C. Nicolosi, MD.
“We’re pleased that Bob’s doing well and can continue his recovery at home,” Nicolosi said.
No interviews are available at this time, but it is expected that Uecker will be made available to the media in a press briefing at Miller Park at some point during his recovery.
