Hall of fame Milwaukee Brewers broadcaster Bob Uecker will be able to call games without worrying about his stalker popping out from behind a corner.

That's right, Uecker, who gained fame after acting turns in the "Major League" series of films and the TV series "Mr. Belvedere", has a stalker.

A Wisconsin appeals court has upheld a restraining order that bans Ann Ladd of northwest suburban Prospect Heights from attending Major League Baseball games where Uecker is announcing.

A court commissioner issued the four-year injunction against Ann Ladd of northwest suburban Prospect Heights after the voice of the Milwaukee Brewers complained the woman harassed and stalked him for years.

Uecker said Ladd approached him after games he worked, hiding and then jumping out unexpectedly to talk to him. She once followed him to a road series between the Brewers and Pittsburgh Pirates, staying on the same floor of his hotel and finding him at the pool.

Ladd argued the restraining order violated her constitutional right to travel, but the District 1 Court of Appeals disagreed Tuesday. Her attorney, Paul Bucher, declined comment.
