Milwaukee Brewers broadcaster Bob Uecker has been released from Milwaukee’s Froedtert Hospital after undergoing successful heart surgery last Friday.
“I am extremely grateful for the well wishes from Brewers fans, friends and associates, as their support has been a great comfort to me and my family” Uecker said. “I also want to thank the doctors and staff at Froedtert for the extraordinary care that they have provided, and I believe their standard of care for all patients is unmatched. I am encouraged that the recovery process is going very well and I look forward to a return to the broadcast booth later this summer.”
The surgery last week was performed by Froedtert & The Medical College of Wisconsin Cardiothoracic Surgeon Alfred C. Nicolosi, MD.
The Brewers inform that 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.
