Front row for Uecker in Hall of Fame

MILWAUKEE -- Finally, Bob Uecker will be in the front row for something -- the Hall of Fame ceremony.

The popular Milwaukee Brewers' broadcaster was picked Thursday for the Ford C. Frick Award and will be inducted into the announcers' wing of the Hall on July 27.

"Bob Uecker is baseball's funniest man, which has made him a household name not only in Milwaukee, but across America," Hall president Dale Petroskey said.
