CBS RADIO News KNX-A/LOS ANGELES sports reporter PAUL OLDEN will be filling some big shoes early this baseball season as the temporary public address announcer at the new YANKEE STADIUM.
OLDEN, a former YANKEES TV voice who also called TAMPA BAY RAYS and other teams' games, will fill in for legendary PA announcer BOB SHEPPARD for exhibition games against the CUBS TODAY and TOMORROW and for the opener on APRIL 16th against CLEVELAND. SHEPPARD, 98, missed last season with a bronchial infection and is still recovering, and his return is up in the air as the season begins.
