Character: "In case you haven't noticed, and judging by the attendance you haven't,"

Uecker: "I knew when my career was over. In 1965 my baseball card came out with no picture."

"The totals for the Indians, one run on one hit. That's all we got, one GD hit?"

/I better get to my annual Major League pre-opening day viewing soon.

Godspeed, Mr. Baseball.

The statue must be in the front row

Well played subby, well played.

/ "Who's that guy she's with?"
// "I don't know, he's not wearing a name tag."
/// kills me every time
 
2012-03-22 09:03:34 AM
"He missed the tag, he missed the tag!"

Uecker gets a commemorative statue, and of course it's next to a statue of Bud Selig. You just can't buy that kind of poetry.

/ Wow, a statue for a guy who hit below the Mendoza line
// Damn good announcer, though
 
2012-03-22 09:04:25 AM
Let me get back to you, will ya, Charlie? I got a guy on the other line asking about some white walls.

The unvailing ceremony brought to you by....Christ, I can't find it. TO HELL WITH IT!
 
2012-03-22 09:05:43 AM
"Well, a couple of grand slammers and the Brewers are right back in this one."

(Uecker during the 8th inning of a game the Brewers were losing 8-0.)

I met him years ago when he was in town. He was calling an Orioles vs Brewers game. At the good ole Memorial Stadium. Very nice guy funny as hell.

"Just a reminder, fans, comin' up is our "Die-hard Night" here at the stadium. Free admission to anyone who was actually alive the last time the Indians won a pennant. "

I can't believe they're laying off pitches that close
 
2012-03-22 09:15:10 AM
They're not putting the statue in a front row seat?

For shame!

Vaughn, a juvenile delinquent in the off season, in his major league debut.

I heard he once threw at his own son in a father-son game

Perfect timing, I just got my Harley, and am making it a point to see Miller Park this summer. Any other spots worth checking out, Brewers fans?
 
2012-03-22 09:35:38 AM
Well, The Indians have a runner. I think I'll wet my pants.
 
2012-03-22 09:40:29 AM
The Indians win it! The Indians win it! Oh my God, the Indians win it!

Still the best victory call ever, in a movie or otherwise!

Wont be nearly as cool as their Bud Selig statue.

Dead for Tax Reasons: The statue must be in the front row


Beat me to it.
 
2012-03-22 09:51:33 AM
Well, you may run like Hayes, but you hit like shiat.
 
2012-03-22 09:54:24 AM
He leads the league in most offensive categories, including nosehair. When this guy sneezes, it looks like a party favor!

"......." - Monty

/they don't call him the best color man in the league for nothing

200 pushups. How does he expect me to hit if I can't lift my arms?
 
2012-03-22 10:07:12 AM
Are you trying to tell me that Jesus Christ can't hit a curveball?

Mother....

That's what I get for not refreshing.

"I set records that will never be equaled. In fact, I hope 90% of them don't even get printed."

"When I looked to the third base coach for a sign, he turned his back on me."

"In 1962 I was named Minor League Player of the Year. It was my second season in the bigs."
 
2012-03-22 10:15:59 AM
I'm pissed off now, Jobu. Look, I go to you. I stick up for you. You don't help me now. I say "fark you," Jobu, I do it myself.

Uke's one of the nicest guys I ever met.

CSB:

I worked for a furniture store back in college and some lady from Menomonee Falls bought a huge oak desk. It was a small store so we had to charge for each delivery guy. She said her husband would pay for one and help out to save some money.

When I showed up she called for "Bob", and ol' Uke came to the driveway to help hoist his own desk into the house. I was speechless. This was the guy I listened to every game and just watched the week before on a video of Major League. Of course he was making jokes the whole time and fake-grumbling about how expensive movers were. He gave me $20 for a tip and never let on who he was. I went back to the store and told this story, and the owner goes "Oh, yeah. He's in here all the time--he finally pulled the trigger and bought something".

Next time I'll tell you about my filing cabinet delivery to Gorman Thomas.

The best part of the quote is the next line, "He tried the corner and missed."

"It is gone off the reservation!"

/You guys took all the good Harry Doyle quotes, leaving me with this.

Only one thing left to do.

What's that?

Win the whole f*ckin' thing!

I dont feel like finding it and linking it, but his story about the furry convention staying at his hotel in Pittsburgh is pure gold.

Yup, we've got uniforms and everything, it's really great!
