Uecker to get statue in Miller Park's last row

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Bob Uecker is getting a statue inside Miller Park, but the likeness of the popular Brewers broadcaster won't be anywhere near the front row.

The bronze statue will be in the last row of the stadium's Terrace Level.

The location pays tribute to a long-ago ad campaign in which an usher tells Uecker he's in the wrong seat. Uecker stands and boasts, "I must be in the front row." Instead, he's relocated to nosebleed seats.

The statue will be dedicated on April 25. The team says there'll be an open seat next to it, allowing for a nice photo opportunity.

Uecker says he can't think of a better place for his statue. He says it'll be great for fans and even better for pigeons.
