The Yankees will hold a tribute to commemorate the lives and recognize the deaths of George Steinbrenner and Bob Sheppard before Friday’s game against the Rays.
The pregame ceremony will include a video tribute to Steinbrenner, the former Yankees chairman and principal owner, who died Tuesday at age 80, as well as a moment of silence for “The Boss” and Sheppard, the club’s longtime public address announcer.
The game starts at 7:05 p.m. ET, and the team encourages fans to be at their seats by 6:45 p.m. Additional ceremonies will take place Saturday during Old-Timers’ Day, and more tributes will be revealed Friday.
During Friday’s ceremony, a wreath will be placed in front of Steinbrenner’s statue in the Gate 2 Executive Lobby of Yankee Stadium, and another will be placed in front of Sheppard’s plaque in Monument Park.
Since they’re only scheduling 20 minutes for this, I have to think Saturday we’ll see more stuff for the guys…
