1. Mel Allen Marker
Inscription.  "The Voice of the Yankees"
1939 - 1964
With his warm personality and signature greeting "Hello There Everybody", he shaped baseball broadcasting by charismatically bringing the excitement and drama of Yankees baseball to generations of fans. He made pet phrases such as "Going. Going, Gone!" a part of our language and culture. A Yankee institution, a national treasure. "How about that?"
Dedicated by The New York Yankees July 25, 1998
