The Voice of God has gone silent

Less than ten weeks after Ernie Harwell left us, longtime Yankee Stadium announcer Bob Sheppard has died at the age of 99. We added a biography on Sheppard to Biography Resource Center back in February. You can find him in the database by searching for the name “Voice of God” — one of his variant names.

On a related note, if you search for plain old “god,” you’ll find Sheppard and 11 others, including Attila (“Scourge of God”), Ghostface Killah (“Sun God”), Abraham (“Friend of God”) and, of course, legendary basketball player God Shammgod (“God Shammgod”).
