Bob Uecker's Quotes

  • The biggest thrill a ballplayer can have is when your son takes after you. That happened when my Bobby was in his championship Little League game. He really showed me something. Struck out three times. Made an error that lost the game. Parents were throwing things at our car and swearing at us as we drove off. Gosh, I was proud.
  • Career highlights? I had two - I got an intentional walk from Sandy Koufax and I got out of a rundown against the Mets.
  • How do you catch a knuckleball? You wait until it stops rolling, then go pick it up.
