Bob Uecker Quotes to Lighten Your Day ...


''Anyone with talent can play in the Major Leagues; for someone like me to stay around as long as I did, I think that's a much greater achievement.''

''They broke it to me gently. The manager came up to me before a game & told me they didn't allow visitor's in the clubhouse.''

''The highlight of my career? In '67 with St. Louis, I walked with the bases loaded to drive in the winning run in an inter-squad game in spring training.''

''When I came up to bat with three men on & two outs in the 9th, I looked in the other teams dugout and they were already in street clothes.''

''People don't know this but I helped the Cardinals to win the pennant. I came down with hepatitis. The trainer injected me with it.''

''Career highlights? I had two. I got an intentional walk from Sandy Koufax and I got out of a rundown against the Mets.''

''If a guy hits .300 every year, what does he have to look forward to? I always tried to stay around .190 with 3 or 4 RBI. And I tried to get them all in September. That way I always had something to talk about during the winter.''

''The way to catch a knuckleball is to wait until the ball stops rolling & then pick it up.''

''When I looked at the 3rd base coach, he turned his back on me.''

''I led the league in ''go get 'em next time.''

I hit a grand slam off of Ron Herbel and when his manager Herman Franks came out to get him, he was bringing Herbel's suitcase.''

''Sporting goods companies pay me not to endorse their products.''

''In 1962 I was named Minor League Player of the Year. It was my 2nd season in the bigs.''

''[As the broadcaster Harry Doyle in the movie] Major League, ... just a bit outside.''

On a more serious note:

''The night has been splendid. I can think of no place else I would rather be as a player, as a broadcaster, or as a citizen than right here in Milwaukee.''

I hope that you enjoyed reliving some of Bob Uecker's hilarious quotes ...

Get up, get up, get outta here ... Gone!!!

Until next time, so long everybody ...
