Bob Uecker Trapped Inside Press Box at Miller Park? Yep, That’s Weird (Pics)

The Milwaukee Brewers are off to an absolutely horrendous start to the 2015 MLB season. They’re 9-19, 11.5 games out of first place, and they’ve already fired their manager. Things can’t get much worse at Miller Park, right?

Wrong! Haha, you fell for it. That was a trick. Things could get worse, and on Wednesday night with the Dodgers in town, they did.

What happened? The handle fell off the door to the home broadcast booth, leaving broadcasting legend Bob Uecker trapped inside. (Presumably other people were trapped, too, but they weren’t in Major League so who cares?)

Don’t get me wrong, this wasn’t some humanitarian disaster or anything. There was plenty of food and water to go around, and nobody had to defecate on the floor. All in all, the “situation” lasted like 15 minutes. But it was still kind of embarrassing when the Brewers had to have a handyman climb up into the booth via a ladder to take the door off its hinges.

Hey Brewers fans, at least Ryan Braun is batting .226/.280/.387, though, amiright?
