Brewers to dedicate a Bob Uecker statue in "The Last Row"

|

MILWAUKEE - The Milwaukee Brewers today announced plans for a new Bob Uecker statue at Miller Park. Unlike the statues that surround Miller Park's Home Plate Plaza, this statue will be in the last row-yes, the last row of the Terrace Level at Miller Park.

The statue will pay tribute to the popular Miller Lite "All Stars" ad campaign which featured Uecker's famous tagline, "I must be in the front row." In the commercial, Uecker ended up in the last row-as will this statue. The statue will sit atop the Uecker Seats in Miller Park's Terrace Level (Section 422) and will feature an open seat next to it allowing for a perfect photo opportunity.

"I can't think of a better place to put this statue," Uecker said. "This will be great for fans and even better for pigeons. You might even be able to see a little part of the field."

The statue was designed by Brian Maughan, the artist of the four statues outside Miller Park on the Home Plate Plaza-Hank Aaron, Allan H. "Bud" Selig, Robin Yount and Uecker. The statue will be made of bronze, but will also have color effects.

"Bob Uecker is synonymous with the Brewers and his famous 'I must be in the front row' tagline is iconic," said Brewers Chief Operating Officer Rick Schlesinger. "This statue will definitely become a destination for fans visiting Miller Park."

The statue will be dedicated on the afternoon of Friday, April 25 at Miller Park. More details will be provided closer to that date.
