Less Than a Grand Slam

Bob Uecker, the legendary Milwaukee Brewers sportscaster, also famous for spoofing himself in the ‘80’s Major League baseball comedies, got one out of the proverbial left-field when his express cruiser was hit by the 551-ft freighter St. Mary’s Challenger. Uecker’s boat was tied dockside on the Kinnickinnic River at the time, and no injuries were reported, but the celebrity’s beloved boat suffered severe damage. The sportscaster was supposed to use his cruiser for a charity-fishing event the following weekend; fortunately, he was loaned one for the purpose. To appropriate one of Uecker’s favorite expressions, "How about that one, folks?!" For video of the damage, click here.
