Bob Sheppard Passes Away
It was announced this weekend that legendary Yankees announcer Bob Sheppard passed away. His voice graced Yankee stadium for decades, calling names from Mickey Mantle all the way to Derek Jeter. Sheppard worked well into his 90's at the stadium, and passed at the age of 99. Hearing his voice calling the names of baseball's greatest players over the years has been a real treat. He will be missed.
