I’m actually kind of choked up as I write this. Phil Rizzuto, legendary Yankee player and broadcaster, passed away today at the age of 89.
I’ll always know Scooter as the voice of my childhood Yankees. I spent so many lazy summer nights listening to his late-inning shout-outs to the state of Florida, so many games listening to him crack up Bill White (who along with the rest of us just seemed to love his broadcast mate) on Channel 11. He will be missed. Rest in peace, Scooter.
