LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) – The longtime voice of the Milwaukee Brewers announced Tuesday that he will miss the next two to three months as he recovers from heart surgery.  Broadcaster Bob Uecker says it's time to fix a leaky aortic valve and enlarged heart.

"I mean, it's gotta be done, you know, that's the bottom line. It has to be done," said Bob Uecker. "I don't wanna go on the road and, you know, take a 'dixie' there. I'd rather do it here, if it's gonna happen."
