              Bob Uecker wasn't a success as a baseball player, but he is top notch as a comedian. Bob Uecker: They make too much about all of these records. Like Sandy Koufax and all of his strikeouts. Heck, I had more strikeouts than he did, and I don't make a big deal about this.

                  That was, without a doubt, the BEST speech in history. Forget Baseball....in HISTORY. WOW....and the laughs - Uecker was on that day.

                            I always enjoyed listening to Bob Uecher on TV and in the movies. Has a great sense of humor and super delivery! He is national treasure and certainly deserves to be in the HOF!

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.
