Bob Sheppard (10/20/1910-7/11/2010). The Yankees paid tribute to Bob's 50th season as public address announcer at Yankee Stadium this day. The event was created and coordinated by PR Director Rick Cerrone and his staff, emceed by Yankee radio announcer John Sterling, and featuring a Bob introduction by Walter Cronkite. Rizzuto, Berra, Murcer, Reggie, along with Bob's children, Paul, Barbara Derenowski, Sister Mary, Chris, and Bob's devoted wife Mary. What a day! Part 1 of 4.

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 all fellow Sheppard fans.
