Uecker on Hall of Fame Streak

Fresh off his induction into the WWE Hall of Fame, Brewers announcer Bob Uecker has been added to another oddball hall. He will join the Wisconsin Meat Industry Hall of Fame.

From the press release:

Uecker has been a master at promoting meat during his many years of play-by-play coverage of Milwaukee Brewers baseball. He often talks about meat as a tasty, nutritious food during his commentary, urging his listeners to set up the grill for hamburgers at a tailgate party or bring pork chops to a picnic, all without missing a single play on the field. Uecker is also a spokesman for Usinger’s sausage company.

Aside from the WWE Hall of Fame and the Wisconsin Meat Industry Hall of Fame, Uecker is also a member of the Radio Hall of Fame and the Baseball Hall of Fame (after winning the Ford C. Frick award for broadcasters).

No word yet on when Bob will join the Actors Hall of Fame for his work on the “Major League” movies, Miller Lite commercials and “Mr. Belvedere” series.
