And here's a press release from the Yankees about today's festivities:
The New York Yankees announced today that several tributes to former Yankees public address announcer Bob Sheppard will take place at the 64th annual Old-Timers' Day on Saturday, July 17.

Prior to the introductions of more than 40 former Yankees players and coaches in attendance for Old-Timers' Day, the Yankees will honor Sheppard with a video tribute. Additionally, the Yankees will recognize Sheppard with a special performance during the seventh-inning stretch.

Sheppard began his tenure as the Yankees' public address announcer on April 17, 1951, and held the position until announcing his final game on September 5, 2007. Over his career, he announced many of the Old-Timers expected to be in attendance on Saturday. Sheppard passed away on Sunday, July 11, at the age of 99.

Gates will open to ticket-holding fans at 12:30 p.m. with introductions scheduled to begin at 2:00 p.m. and the traditional Old-Timers' game immediately to follow. Monument Park will close to fans at 3:15 p.m.

The Yankees will also celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Yankees' 1950 World Championship team. The seven members of the World Series-winning club in attendance-Hall-of-Famers Yogi Berra and Whitey Ford, as well as Jerry Coleman, Don Johnson, Duane Pillette, Charlie Silvera and Hank Workman-will wear replica 1950 uniforms.

Every Old-Timers' Day is a special day in the Bronx, today will obviously be no different.
