Ueker, who played in six big league seasons — including the 1964 World Series champion St. Louis Cardinals — is probably better known by this era for his work in the press box.
Some may even know him only for his role in the press box on the silver screen, as Harry Doyle in Major League, Major League II, and Major League: Back to the Minors.
The former catcher, who allowed a whopping 25 passed balls in just 59 starts in 1967 (ironically, his last in the majors), began his broadcasting career in Milwaukee in 1971.
In honor of Ueker's birthday, NESN Daily is wondering — what is the best baseball movie quote of all time?
