An End to an Era? Bob Sheppard to retire?

1 04 2009

According to the New York Times, via his agent, Bob Sheppard, the voice of Yankee Stadium, and as Reggie Jackson put it, the “voice of God,” is retiring. However, Sheppard, when asked to confirm the information, he said, “I never said I’m not returning. I never, never said I’m not returning and I say it to you now.

Sheppard has been announcing games at Yankee Stadium since 1951, when the first lineup he announced included Hall of Famers, Joe DiMaggio, Mickey Mantle, Yogi Berra, and Phil Rizzuto.
