February 2, 1957- A Milwaukee Journal article mentioned the signing of Milwaukee native Bob Uecker to a contract with the Braves Corpus Christi (Tex,) farm team in the Class B Big State League. Uecker, 21, a 6 foot 1 inch, 190-pounder, was discharged from the Army camp at Fort Belvoir, Virginia. Braves scout John Ogden helped get Uecker.
