    Woman in Uecker case ordered to leave game

    In the exhibition baseball season, the games don't count but the restraining orders do.

    A woman accused of stalking Milwaukee Brewers' announcer Bob Uecker for nearly a decade was ordered out of the Maryvale Baseball Park in Phoenix yesterday, after Brewer officials spotted her in a seat near the front row. The officials tipped off the police officers who provide security in the ball yard.

    Phoenix Police Sgt. Joel Tranter said Ann Ladd left voluntarily when confronted by the officers and was issued a trespassing warning.

    Under a restraining order issued last September, Ladd is banned from attending any Brewer home and road games and is required to stay at least 500 feet away from the longtime Brewers announcer.

    The order specifically included spring training and exhibition games.

    (Not to be confused with Cheryl Ladd)

    Horseshit lead. Flippant lead inappropriate for the story.

    Yeah, I know it's worth a million jokes because Uecker isn't exactly Brad Pitt, but stalking is scary. Those fuckers are completely delusional -- like the woman who stalked Letterman for years -- and the target has to be constantly worried. You're liable to unlock a hotel door and find the psycho in the room. Letterman's stalker used to break into his house and live there when he was out of town.

    If it were a female celebrity being stalked by a male (or a really muscular lesbian), it would get the serious treatment it deserves.
