"Juuuust a bit outside..."

Harrydoyle Everyone's favorite baseball commentator turns 73 years old this weekend.

The play-by-play announcer for the Milwaukee Brewers since the 70s, Bob Uecker also has made more than 50 appearances on the "Tonight Show," had an acting part in the 80s sitcom "Mr. Belvedere" and has filmed more Miller Lite beer commercials than any other human on the planet.

However, to hard-core 80s fans (are there any other kind?), he'll always be remembered as "Harry Doyle" in 1989's "Major League."

TOP 5 BOB UECKER LINES FROM MAJOR LEAGUE:

5. "In case you haven't noticed, and judging by the attendance you haven't, the Indians have managed to win a few ball games, and are threatening to climb out of the cellar."

4. "Remember, fans, Tuesday is Die Hard Night. Free admission for anyone who was actually alive the last time the Indians won the pennant."

3. "Heywood leads the league in most offensive categories, including nose hair."

2. "This guy threw at his own son in a father-son game."

1. "Juuust a bit outside."
