Abraham on Bill Shannon

Bill Shannon, a long time official scorer for both the Yankees and Mets, passed away in a fire at his New Jersey home earlier today. I was lucky enough to hear his distinct call in person for a few games this September and October at Citi Field.

Peter Abraham wrote a remembrance piece about Shannon for the Boston Globe. It’s worth a read, if only to learn a little bit about a behind-the-scenes figure in baseball.
