Veteran Brewers broadcaster Bob Uecker gets playoff share

   MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Veteran Milwaukee Brewers radio broadcaster Bob Uecker is touched that the team still considers him one of the boys.

   Last November, after the Brewers came within one game of going to the World Series, the players voted to give a full playoff share to Uecker, worth $123,000. Uecker donated the money to charity.

   The 85-year-old Hall of Fame broadcaster tells the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel he "couldn't believe it." When he talked to players, Uecker says they told him, "Ueck, it was no big deal. You were part of that."

   After the Brewers clinched their first playoff berth in seven years with a 2-1 win over the St. Louis Cardinals last September, a video showed players dumping champagne and beer on Uecker as he pumped his arms.

   Uecker is about to start his 49th season as a Brewers broadcaster. He has no plans to quit.
