MILWAUKEE (AP) Bob Uecker is returning to the Milwaukee Brewers broadcast booth a week after getting hit in the head by a ball during batting practice.
A team spokesman said Uecker was returning to the radio booth at Miller Park for Tuesday night’s game against the New York Mets.
The 81-year-old Uecker, 2003 winner of the Hall of Fame’s Ford C. Frick Award for broadcast excellence, was hit during batting practice before a home game on June 15 against the Royals. He worked the first six innings and started feeling dizzy.

Uecker missed a home game June 16 against the Royals. He was not scheduled to call games during a five-game trip to Kansas City and Colorado.
