Catcher, actor, comedian, and broadcaster Bob Uecker has been awarded the 2003 Ford C. Frick Award. Richly deserved.

My favorite Uecker quote...

"I hit a grand slam off Ron Herbel and when his manager Herman Franks came out to get him, he was bringing Herbel's suitcase."

and one more...

"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."
