Bob Uecker Finally Has A Hit

Kohnke Hanneken hit a home run this year for the Milwaukee Brewers baseball team, according to judges of the city’s ad show.
The agency’s three subtly humorous TV spots touting Brewers tickets won Best of Show honors at the local event, which is not affiliated with the national Addys competition.
One spot has Brewers manager Phil Garner and a coach telling each other jokes using signs; another features the team’s funnyman announcer Bob Uecker chatting with player Jeff Cirillo, who remembers Uecker only from his role in the TV sitcom Mr. Belvedere.
BVK/McDonald led gold medal recipients with five, followed by three for Kohnke Hanneken and two for Bender, Browning, Dolby & Sanderson. — Trevor Jensen
