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 3 of 3 videos. Written by then Yankee PR Director Marty Appel, listen to Bob introduce Bobby Richardson who delivered the invocation, Robert Merrill to sing the National Anthem, and old time Yankee Bob Shawkee, who won the first game in the original Stadium to throw out this opener's first ball.

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!!
