(WNFL)- Bob Uecker's second statue at Miller Park will be unveiled on Friday. An afternoon ceremony is planned for special guests. Fans will get to see the new statue on Friday night, when a pre-game ceremony honors the Brewers' Hall of Fame radio broadcaster. Uecker already has a statue outside Miller Park next to Bud Selig, Hank Aaron, and Robin Yount. The new one immortalizes his role in the old Miller Lite All-Star commercials, where he got booted to the nose-bleed seats after famously saying "I must be in the front row." Brian Maughan designed the new statue. He also created the four outside the home plate entrance to the ballpark.
