The Milwaukee Brewers will host a special event to dedicate a second statue at Miller Park for 620WTMJ's Voice of the Milwaukee Brewers, in the spot he made so famous - the last row of the stadium's seats.
Bob Uecker made the last row of a baseball stadium a famous place with his Miller Lite "All Stars" campaign.
The words "Good seats, hey buddy? He missed the tag! He missed the tag!" became part of the sports fan's lexicon.
Friday afternoon, the team will unveil a state in Miller Park's last row in the Terrace level in an event for special guests and the media.
Fans will get to see the statue later that night before the Brewers-Chicago Cubs game.
