This is awful....

He was the official scorer at Yankee Stadium and Citi Field and was considered the best


Wonderful man

Turns out Shannon was penniless and NY sportswriters were passing the hat to bury him.

Bud Selig said his office will take care of the arrangements.

Just wondering, wouldn't someone who was the official scorer for both of New York's teams make decent money?

I don't think scorers make that much.
