BREWERS MAY LOOK TO PUT UECKER IN THE FRONT ROW
Published March 2, 1995
In an effort to "help sell what has been the last-place club the past two years," the Brewers may use long-time broadcaster Bob Uecker in the team's TV spots. Uecker has been doing spots for the IHL Milwaukee Admirals for the past three years that "may be among the best ever produced in the Milwaukee area." His "comedic antics" are cited for helping the Admirals "significantly" at the box office, "and the Brewers obviously are looking for similar results." Uecker: "I don't know why we didn't do it before. I don't know if they didn't want to ask me or what. I offered to do it three years ago." Although Brewers officials "would not confirm" that plans, it is reported that they already have an advertising deal lined up with Laughlin/Constable Inc. of Milwaukee (Bob Berghaus, MILWAUKEE JOURNAL, 3/1).
