• Nice Gesture By Yanks Towards Sheppard

    Posted by on February 24th, 2008 · Comments (1)

    I noticed this tucked away at the bottom of a Ken Davidoff feature:

    Bob Sheppard, the Yankees’ venerable public address announcer, recently signed a two-year extension. While he probably won’t be ready for Opening Day — last October’s case of pneumonia took a great deal out of him — Shepherd, believed to be 97, should return about two months into the regular season.

    To me, this is like making Bob Sheppard Yankee Stadium Public Address Announcer Emeritus – which, is the right thing to do.

      It sure was a nice gesture. And more than a deserved one.

      Here’s hoping Bob Sheppard returns to the booth soon! He was missed at the end of last season.
