I’ll get to last night’s game later, but for now there’s something more important to report.
Bob Sheppard, former Yankees public address announcer known as “The Voice of God,” passed away at his Baldwin, NY home. Sheppard announced more than 4,500 ballgames and 22 World Series. It’s a very sad day in Yankeeland, and there will be a lot of press coverage on this. I’ll be sure to add more as it comes up, but for now, take a moment to remember the greatest announcer in the history of professional sports.
