Readers Vote: Bob Sheppard Forever


When I wrote about a company's capability to record Yankees announcer Bob Sheppard's voice and essentially make him the team's announcer in perpetuity, I wasn't sure what the reaction would be.

I knew that Sheppard was well loved, but I thought that many fans would find it weird if there announcer wasn't in the stadium or was still pronouncing rookies names despite having passed away.

The topic triggered a polar reaction, as I received e-mail completely supporting it, while others said that the idea was creepy.

For official purposes, this blog is saying that Sheppard's voice should live on forever. With more than 300 votes in, two of every three (68 percent) readers said that Sheppard's voice should live on forever.
