Bob Sheppard's plaque at Memorial Park at Yankee Stadium. - May 17, 2010.

I never got a chance to hear Bob Sheppard announce a name live, but during my visit to New York in May, I got to hear his voice via a recording. The Yankees still play an old recording of him announcing Derek Jeter’s name before his at-bats. I’d heard the recording played on television, but there was something majestic about hearing it at the Stadium. I took video/audio of it, but have yet to upload it. Perhaps I’ll upload and share it later.
