Not bragging by any means, but I could have done a lot of other stuff as far as working in films go and working in television... I had chances to do that stuff, but I like baseball, I really do.
I hope the fans have enjoyed listening as much as I've enjoyed doing the games. I don't ever go to the park where I don't have a good day. I don't like losing. But I don't think I ever go to the park where I have a bad day. I don't think once.
I didn't get a lot of awards as a player. But they did have a Bob Uecker Day Off for me once in Philly.
Where would I be without baseball? Who am I without baseball?
In 1962 I was named Minor League Player of the Year. It was my second season in the bigs.
