Bob Uecker's back hurts him even when he just sits to do play-by-play on Milwaukee Brewers radio broadcasts.

But the longtime announcer known as "Mr. Baseball" isn't going on the disabled list."It bothers my back but it's something I enjoy doing," Uecker said after calling a game last week. "Everything bothers my back but if I enjoy what I'm doing, I do it."

Uecker, who has said he is giving up his work for NBC, plans to have surgery after the season. He says his back pain is probably "from sitting on the bench my whole career."
