In light of the recent deaths of Yankee legends Bob Sheppard and George Steinbrenner, the New York ballclub’s graphic designers have been busy coming up with a patch that will adorn the uniforms of the Yankee players.
Both are stark black and white to match the Yankee uniforms. The Steinbrenner patch includes his full name plus his initials “GMS”. At the bottom, it says The Boss”. Nice touch.
Sheppard’s patch is a nicely done graphic of an old time PA mike within a baseball diamond and simply says, “Bob Sheppard The Voice of Yankee Stadium”.
The GMS patch will be worn above the NY on the left breast on the home jerseys and above the YORK on away jerseys.
You’ll find the Sheppard patch on the Yankees’ left sleeves.
