BREWERS MAY LOOK TO PUT UECKER IN THE FRONT ROW

     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).
