Bob Sheppard (10/20/1910-7/11/2010), the Voice of Yankee Stadium for 57 seasons, delivers a dignified "moment of respectful silence" to RFK prior to a Yankee game vs. Calif. at the Stadium the day after RFK's funeral. The video features images of RFK moments before he was shot. 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!!
