Sheppard-gate: Yankees Say It’s Untrue That Bob Sheppard Is retiring!

I love it.  Bob Sheppard-gate!
I thought that “April 2” thing was odd (scroll down the blog, the Times article was coded “April 2”)….and now read this on
“We have spoken to Paul Sheppard, and he was very clear to us that the report made is categorically untrue,” said Yankees director of public relations Jason Zillo. “Paul Sheppard has not said anything remotely like that.”
I suspect the NYY’s are sad that things got unofficially announced.
Bob is 98 and hasn’t done a game in a year.   I love him but let’s be real.  He’s retired.  They just don’t like how it got announced.
