In Memory of the Scooter

"Holy Cow!", those two words will forever remind me of one person... Phil Rizzuto.  Phil passed away earlier today at 89 years old.

Phil was a baseball great.  He played along side Joe DiMaggio. Mickey Mantle, Whitey Ford and Yogi Berra and yet was still able to stand out and be noticed.

For Red Sox fans it is worth noting that it was Red Sox great Ted Williams who is perhaps the most responsible for Phil being inducted into the baseball hall of fame.  Williams had said about Phil, "If we'd had Rizzuto in Boston, we'd have won all those pennants instead of New York."

Phil, you'll be missed!
