Monmouth: Legendary Voices

EmailToday's death of legendary Yankee Stadium announcer Bob Sheppard marks the end of an era for every living Yankees fan. His voice was as distinct and identifiable as any in sports history, and hearing it has always brought back memories of the Stadium, early days with my father and brother and later (much later, usually) nights with friends. Just like longtime Monmouth Park announcer Bob Weems, Sheppard's voice will always embody youth and joy for a 42-year-old Jersey guy.
