MILWAUKEE (AP) - Milwaukee Brewers Hall of Fame radio broadcaster Bob Uecker will be back behind the microphone this weekend, just three months after heart surgery.

The 75-year-old broadcaster underwent surgery April 30 to replace his aortic valve, aortic root and part of his ascending aorta.

The Brewers say Uecker will be back on Friday, when the Washington Nationals visit Miller Park.

The popular Uecker is in his 40th season broadcasting Brewers games. He also has starred in commercials and the television sitcom “Mr. Belvedere.”

The Brewers have not said if Uecker will travel for the team’s road games.
