Bob Sheppard (10/20/2010-7/11/2010), voice of Yankee Stadium for 57 seasons delivered his longest group of introductions on 4/15/1976 when the refurbished Yankee Stadium was opened. This is Part 1 of 3 videos. Written by then Yankee PR director Marty Appel, listen to Bob introduce Billy Martin for the first time as NYY manager along with other Yankee greats on this star-studded opener.

Bob was a genuinely admirable human being and a gentleman of the old school who represented a bygone era of aspiration and dignity. The sacred eloquence that Bob's work represented and epitomized has now officially past. He was a credit to his faith, his family, his friends, and to sports. He possessed unrivaled character, integrity, courage, and class. How lucky I was to even know this exceptional man since his sterling influence on my life echoed through to my very heart and soul. I shall miss him terribly. We shall all miss the magnificent Robert Leo Sheppard.

Thank you Sheppard fans!!
