New Bob Uecker statue plays on 80's Miller Lite ads featuring "Mr. Baseball"

MILWAUKEE -- If you remember the classic 1980's Miller ads with Bob Uecker sitting in the baseball stands, then you'll get why a new statue of Mr. Baseball is being placed in the last row of the Terrace Level at Miller Park.

The new statue pays tribute to the Miller Lite "All Stars" Ad Campaign that featured Uecker's famous tag line, "I must be in the front row."

But by the end of the commercial, Uecker somehow always ended up in the last row.

Unlike the Uecker statues that surround Miller Park's Home Plate Plaza, this one will sit atop the Uecker seats in Miller Park's Terrace Level, section 422--in the last row.
