Change your plans tonight. Player, actor, Hall Of Fame broadcaster, furry expert, and Milwaukee Record hero Bob Uecker will be honored with an hour-long MLB Network documentary that will air at 6 p.m. CST Thursday. Featuring narrator Tom Berenger (Major League’s Jake Taylor himself), the doc will feature notable names in sports such as Hank Aaron, Bob Costas, Bud Selig, Al Michaels, and even Ueck talking about how the marginal big league backstop changed his career path and earned the lofty title of “Mr. Baseball.”
If this clip about Uecker spilling gravy on scouting reports isn’t enough to sway you to watch, nothing will.
