I was at a White Sox/Yankees game in 2004 when he announced Jose Valentin as the batter for 3 consecutive hitters. You have to give him a lot of credit. If I ever make it that long, the last thing you would see me doing is working.

Nothing against Harry Kalas, but the classic NFL Films are the best.

Sheppard did Giants football game when they played at Yankee Stadium as well, but I don't know if he would have done boxing matches.

He retired from the Giants after the 2005 season.
