Longtime Yankee Stadium PA announcer Bob Sheppard has died at the age of 99. He was the announcer at Yankee Stadium from 1951 to 2007. I went to Yankee Stadium in 2008, partially to see the stadium in his last year, and I was hoping I could hear Sheppard work the game. Sadly, I was not able to hear Sheppard.
Derek Jeter had Sheppard make a recording of him announcing Jeter, and it will be played before Jeter's at bats for the remainder of his Yankee Stadium career.
