A bunch of famous people congratulated Bob Uecker on his Miller Park statue

You know Hall of Fame broadcaster Bob Uecker as the voice of the Brewers since 1971. But, in another life, Uecker dabbled in acting. You probably remember him as George Owens in Mr. Belvedere or for his infamous call in Major League:

After spending part of his playing career in Milwaukee (his hometown) and working in the Brewers' broadcast booth for more than 30 years, Uecker was honored by the team with a statue in the obstructed view section of Miller Park. The statue is a play on Uecker's beer ads from the '80s, where he always ended up sitting in the cheap seats:

In an effort to recognize Uecker's contributions to the baseball and Hollywood communities, Morgan Freeman, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Don Rickles, Ty Burrell and a slew of other famous faces took some time out of their busy schedules to congratulate the ballplayer/broadcaster/actor on the accolade. We're all the better for it, mostly because Morgan Freeman could say literally anything and have us melting.

Check out the statue's dedication ceremony, which featured former Brewers Robin Yount, Rollie Fingers and Bill Schroeder:
