                  Mendoza had a career .215 average. Uecker .200. it ought to be called " The Mendoza-Uecker Line".

                              lol this is NOT Bob Barker, not to mention they spelled his name wrong. It does kind of look like him, but still a fake.

                                  I’m 51 and have lived near Milwaukee my whole life. I have been listening to Bob Uecker every season. It wouldn’t seem right without him. We’ve been lucky to have him 49 years now.

                                                        So glad this video exists. The jokes. The Hall of Famers and others literally not able to hold back tears of laughter. Just beautiful. As a kid growing up in Wisconsin attending games at County Stadium as a Brewers fan still to this day, I cherish this guy.
