Paul Olden reacts to Bob Sheppard hanging up his mike
Had a nice chat Friday afternoon with new Yankee Stadium p.a. announcer Paul Olden in the wake of this week's word from old Yankee Stadium p.a. announcer Bob Sheppard that he has no plans to return to the job.
Here is a newspaper article I wrote about it.
"When I accepted the position, it was always with the knowledge that if he was able to recover and wanted to come back . . . I would gladly give the microphone to him.''
