    Uecker Has Leaking Aortic Valve

    April 27, 2010

    Tom Haudricourt posted more information this afternoon regarding Mr. Baseball’s Friday surgery:

    “Dr. Jim Klezca of Froedtert Hospital announced that legendary Brewers radio voice Bob Uecker needs the aortic valve in his heart replaced and also a repair of the enlarged aorta.

    That surgery will be performed by Dr. Alfred Nicolosi at Froedtert on Friday morning.

    Klezca said a heart mumur was detected in a test last September and also the aorta was discovered to be enlarged. The conditions were monitored but they grew worse in recent weeks.

    “Something needs to be done,” said Klezca, who participated in a news conference at Miller Park along with Uecker.

    “He’s at high risk of something bad happening.”

    Klezca said the most recent heart scans “showed the aorta has grown larger. It could potentially rupture before the end of the season.”

    Uecker said his heart condition had been monitored since last September by Klezca. He said he hoped to wait until after the season but “things changed dramatically” after the team’s last road trip.

    “I’ve known about this a long time,” said Uecker. “I was given the OK to travel and exercise, everything I do healthwise, but some of the health problems have become a little more evident.

    “Hopefully, I’ll be ready to go back to work in a relatively short period of time. I’ll miss this. I look forward to comig to the ballpark every day. It’s the highlight of my day.”

    The news conference was attended by manager Ken Macha and several players, including Prince Fielder, Rickie Weeks, Casey McGehee, Craig Counsell, Trevor Hoffman and Jim Edmonds. Uecker got a bit emotional when talking about that show of support.”

    Haudricourt also reported that WTMJ Radio plans on using Davey Nelson for the time being:

    “Journal Broadcast Group executive Steve Wexler said in a memo this afternoon to WTMJ Radio employees that the station plans to use Davey Nelson on Brewers radio broadcasts in the absence of Bob Uecker for at least an impending road trip. After that, plans have not been set.

    Wexler said in an interview that Nelson is to handle the Brewers 10-game road trip that begins Thursday in San Diego and ends May 9 in Arizona. He said Nelson graciously consented to handle those games, but that the radio station and the team had not determined who, if anybody, will work games with Cory Provus while Uecker is away.

    Uecker, who is in his 40th year as the voice of Brewers radio broadcasts, is to undergo heart surgery on Friday. Uecker is expected to miss as much as three months of the season.

    Wexler said Uecker will be in the broadcast booth tonight and Wednesday night as usual to handle the second and third games in the home series against the Pirates.

    “While Bob is an employee of the Milwaukee Brewers (not Journal Broadcast Group), he is obviously a fixture on our radio station and I know you join me in wishing Bob a speedy and successful recovery,” Wexler said in his memo.”
