A fitting way to close the Stadium

Well, we've missed him all year --minus the taped Jeter intros-- but maybe we'll have him back to do the finale:

Everyone knows the only fitting way to close Yankee Stadium is with Bob Sheppard returning to be the public-address announcer for the final game. His health has kept him from doing a single Yankees game this season - which would have been his 58th - but rest assured he has visions of returning for the finale.

If I can be there, I shall be there."

There's no truth to the rumor that his voice echoes even when not in the Stadium. We can only hope that he feels well enough. He's been such a remarkable presence for decades, it's only fitting that he's there to turn off the lights. I sure hope so.
