Yankees to pay tribute to Steinbrenner, Sheppard Friday

The Yankees will pay tribute to the late George M. Steinbrenner III and Bob Sheppard prior to Friday night’s game against the Rays, the team announced Thursday.
The pregame ceremony will include a video tribute to Steinbrenner, who passed away at age 80 on Tuesday morning, as well as moments of silence for The Boss and Sheppard. Additional ceremonies will also take place during Old-Timers’ Day on Saturday.
During Friday’s ceremony, a wreath will be placed in front of Steinbrenner’s statue in the Gate 2 Executive Lobby of Yankee Stadium, and another will be placed in front of Sheppard’s plaque in Monument Park. United States Army Sergeant First Class Mary Kay Messenger will sing the National Anthem, and the West Point Color Guard will present the colors.
The game starts at 7:05 p.m. ET, but the team encourages fans to be at their seats by 6:45.

With all due respect to the memories of George Steinbrenner and Bob Shepard, the Stadium flying the US Flag as half-mast is considered a inappropriate according to the code of conduct on how to display of the stars and stripes. I once met Mr. Steinbrenner and have always been a fan of his. Like many, I admire both he and Bob Shepard, so I’m not upset but thought that is should be brought to Yankee organization’s attention. I would hypothesize that as patriotice as Mr. Steinbrenner was that he might have insisted flags be flown in accordance with code. May they both rest in peace.
