guest Ap­peAR­Ance

Austin American-Statesman - - SPORTSBRIEFING -

Brew­ers Hall of Fame broad­caster Bob Uecker had a sur­prise guest in the ra­dio booth dur­ing Satur­day night’s game be­tween Mil­wau­kee and Washington: Na­tion­als slug­ger Adam Dunn.

The for­mer Texas Longhorn was not in the start­ing lineup and dropped in dur­ing the bot­tom of the sec­ond in­ning to talk to the 75-year-old an­nouncer who re­turned to the booth over the week­end for the first time since un­der­go­ing heart surgery.

The pair talked about go­ing fish­ing to­gether be­fore Dunn left. Dunn later en­tered the game as a pinch hit­ter in the top of the ninth and hit a sac­ri­fice fly that tied the game.
