    Steinbrenner and Sheppard patches to be worn

    Yankees to wear patches in honor of Steinbrenner and Sheppard

    Here’s the announcement from the Yankees.

    To commemorate the lives and recognize the passings of former Principal Owner / Chairperson George M. Steinbrenner III and longtime Yankees public address announcer Bob Sheppard, the Yankees will don uniform patches for the remainder of the season, beginning with Friday’s game vs. Tampa Bay at Yankee Stadium.

    The Steinbrenner commemorative patch will be worn above the interlocking NY on the left breast of the Yankees’ home jerseys and above the letters “YORK” on the left breast of the Yankees’ road uniforms. Both locations are over the heart.

    The Sheppard commemorative patch will be worn on the left sleeve of the Yankees’ home and road jerseys.

    At tonight’s Major League Baseball All-Star Game in Anaheim, Calif., Manager Joe Girardi, Yankees players and Yankees coaches will wear black armbands on their left sleeves in honor of Mr. Steinbrenner’s passing.

    The Associated Press released a picture of the patch as provided by the Yankees.

    Great patches no doubt about it...just thought Mr. Steinbrenners wouldn't be so plain.

    The Sheppard patch seems nicer then the Steinbrenner one.

    But I guess they couldn't just put "BS" on the sleeve of Yankees Jerseys

    Steinbrenner isn't even cold yet.
