Long-time Yankee Stadium public address announcer, Bob Sheppard passed away today. Sheppard, 99, was the voice of Yankee Stadium for over 50 years. Sheppard announced 22 different World Series and spent a portion of his career announcing New York football Giants games. “The Voice of God” lost a long, arduous health battle. However, as long as Derek Jeter is a Yankee, Mr. Sheppard’s voice will live on in Yankee Stadium.
