1. Bob Uecker Marker
Inscription.  "Mr. Baseball." Synonymous with baseball in Milwaukee, Uecker played two of his six Major League seasons in the Brew City but his legacy extends far beyond the field. Known for his humor and quick wit, the Milwaukee native was named radio play-by-play announcer for the Brewers in 1971. Honored by the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 2003 as the winner of the Ford C. Frick Award. Also member of the National Radio Hall of Fame, the National Sportscasters and Sportswriters Hall of Fame, and the Wisconsin Sports Hall of Fame. Recognized by the Brewers in 2005 with the retirement of the number 50 - representing his 50 years in professional baseball. Honored in 2012 with a statue bearing his likeness outside Miller Park - one of only four Brewers to receive such distinction.
