Bob Uecker to get statue ... in the last row!

Remember the old Miller Lite Commercial?

Miller Park, in Milwaukee, will be honoring broadcaster Bob Uecker with a statue ... in the last row!


Brewers Hall of Fame radio voice Bob Uecker, who has a statue outside of Miller Park, soon will have one inside the stadium.

The Brewers announced Wednesday that Uecker will be honored with a statue in 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. instead of the great seats he expected.

The statue will sit atop the Uecker Seats in the Terrace Level (Section 422) and will feature an open seat next to it allowing for a perfect photo opportunity. It will be dedicated on the afternoon of Friday, April 25, with more details provided as that date approaches.

“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, 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."
