The new guy, who's name escapes me, does every batter who steps to the plate - all except Derek Jeter. There is a taped recording of Sheppard announcing Jeter as he walks to the plate.
PA announcers rarely get their due respect, but Sheppard sure is getting his. A New Yorker through and through - born in Richmond Hill, Queens, worked in the Bronx (Yankees) and New Jersey (NY Giants), educated in Brooklyn (St. John's Prep) and Manhattan (Master's at Columbia), and passing away at his home in Long Island (Baldwin).
Bob Sheppard - "Now batting for the Yankees, number 2, Derek Jeter, number two."
May you rest in peace. Alongside The Boss.
RIP Bob Sheppard, "The voice of God" (1910-2010)
