MILWAUKEE (AP) - -

UPDATE: Milwaukee Brewers Hall of Fame broadcaster Bob Uecker won't make the call Tuesday night for the team.

Uecker was hit in the head by a baseball during batting practice before Monday's Brewers-Royals game. He later started feeling dizzy. He was checked out by team doctors then taken to a Milwaukee hospital where he remained overnight after getting a concussion diagnosis.

WTMJ radio in Milwaukee, the flagship station for the Brewers broadcasts, said that Uecker would skip tonight's game so he can get a little extra rest.

Milwaukee Brewers Hall of Fame broadcaster Bob Uecker was hospitalized overnight after he was hit in the head by a baseball during batting practice.

The Brewers flagship radio station, WTMJ, says a pop-up hit Uecker prior to Monday night's Brewers-Kansas City Royals game. The 81-year-old broadcaster worked the first six innings of the game and started feeling dizzy.

Team doctors checked him out and sent him to Froedtert Hospital. He was diagnosed with a mild concussion and remained in the hospital overnight.

Uecker says he'll see how he's feeling Tuesday afternoon before deciding whether to call the game Tuesday night.
