Maybe She Was a Mr. Belvedere Fan

It's just a good, old-fashioned underbelly day around here.

A 45-year-old woman once charged with stalking Milwaukee Brewers announcer Bob Uecker, was asked to leave Monday's spring training game against the Chicago Cubs.

A restraining order issued in September bars [redacted] from games Uecker is announcing and requires her to stay at least 500 feet away from him. Uecker wasn't calling this particular game, but the team wouldn't say whether he was actually hiding under a desk at the ballpark.

A felony stalking charge against [redacted] was dropped in October, but the restraining order remains in effect for at least the next few years... until he's not alive for her to stalk.

[Redacted] had a ticket to the game, but left voluntarily. She was given a trespassing warning and was informed that if she returned, she would be arrested.

Uecker has said [redacted] stalked him for six or seven years, asking for his autograph, sending him unwanted gifts and showing up at ballparks and hotels where he was staying.

Update: The recent stalking charge against [redacted] has been dropped, but a restraining order remains in effect.
