Holy Cow! R.I.P. Phil Rizzuto

Phil Rizzuto was a Hall of Fame shortstop for the Yankees during their dynasty of the 1940s and ’50s and a beloved member of the team as both a player and a broadcaster. A fixture on the field for 13 seasons, Rizzuto helped the Yankees to seven World Series championships. A great contact hitter and a superb fielder, Rizzuto frequently supplied the ingredients for victory and was the American League’s MVP in 1950. After his playing career he moved to the broadcast booth, from where he entertained fans for 40 seasons.
