|Brewers: Uecker Making Good Progress After Surgery
|MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The Milwaukee Brewers say broadcaster Bob Uecker is making good progress a day after having heart surgery.
Uecker remained in intensive care but was awake and able to sit in a chair, the team said in a statement Saturday.
The surgery will keep Uecker away from the team for up to three months.
Dr. Alfred C. Nicolosi replaced Uecker's aortic valve, aortic root and part of his ascending aorta. He also performed a coronary bypass.
