STILL AT ZERO

 4-17 -1951 ---For the first time, in a career that will span more than half of a century, Bob Sheppard announces the Yankees' lineup. The legendary public address announcer's introduction of the Bronx Bombers will include the memorable names of Mickey Mantle (playing his first game in pinstripes), Phil Rizzuto, and Yogi Berra, but the first player's name off the lips of the 'Voice of God' will be DiMaggio – Dom DiMaggio, the leadoff batter for the visiting Red Sox.
