Speaking about his career, Bob became interested in baseball as a child, while he watched the Minor League team the Milwaukee Brewers at Borchert Field, which encouraged him to begin playing. He turned professional in 1956, when he signed a contract with the Milwaukee Braves, however, he didn’t make his debut in the Major League Baseball (MLB) with the team until 1962. Bob stayed with the Braves until 1963 when his contract expired, and by the time he left, he showed what a great talent he was, as he had a .200 batting average, so his net worth began to increase as well as his popularity. His professional playing career was active until 1967, as after the Braves, he played for the St. Louis Cardinals (1964-1965), Philadelphia Phillies (1966-1967), and Atlanta Braves (1967), finishing it with a fielding percentage of .981.

Nevertheless, Bob stayed in the sports industry, this time as a broadcaster, starting to work for the Milwaukee Brewers’ on radio in 1971.

In addition to these, he also starred in several advertising commercials for the Milwaukee Admirals of the American Hockey League during the 1990s, and has many times appeared as a guest in such TV shows as “Johnny Carson’s Tonight Show”.

Thanks to his accomplishments, Bob has been named five times for Wisconsin Sportscaster of the Year by the National Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association, and he was also inducted into the National Radio Hall of Fame in 2001, and into the Celebrity Wing of the WWE Hall of Fame in 2010.
