RIP.

I'm not usually big on the "Yankee mystique", etc.

But his voice was a unique and wonderful fit for Yankee Stadium and the city of New York. I've enjoyed three trips to Yankee Stadium over the years...distinct memories of his voice echoing across Yankee Stadium.

Will never forget his voice echoing through "The House That Ruth Built" on my visit there in 1965.
RIP, Bob.

Jeter still used a recording of his voice when Sheppard left permanently. RIP---arguably the greatest PA announcer, ever.

Yankee Stadium P.A. announcer. He did Giants games when they played in the Bronx. He was on ESPN's "Sports Century" likening Johnny Unitas leading the Colts on the winning drive to Patton's and Third Army sweeping across Europe.

RIP, Bob. Your voice is what stands out for me when I was going to Yankee Stadium as a kid.

He and Sherm Feller were my favorite out of town PA announcers. RIP.

"Now batting...for the Yankees...number two...the shortstop...Derek...Jeter...number two."

The Voice of God has now met God.

Bob was among the last of the old great stadium announcers like Sherm Feller (Boston), Bob Casey (Minnesota), and Rex Barney (Baltimore). Does anyone know if Roy Steele is still working in Oakland?

RIP. A true legend.

All you need to know is that fans in their 90's down to fans barely old enough to read knew who Bob Sheppard was.

That is a true legend.

RIP, Mr. Sheppard.

I hope a true legend has found a ballgame to announce at up there.

It won't be the same without hearing his voice announce the batters at Yankee Stadium.

Not a single player past or present went to his funeral
