Phil Rizzuto, beloved Yankee shortstop and broadcaster, is dead at 89. I did not recieve the great pleasure of seeing Scooter play his magnificent defense and contact hitting or hear him broadcast a game live, but it hits me just as hard nonetheless. Part of Yankee lore, a Hall of Famer, and reciever of a great privilege-having his number retired, to have no New York Yankee wear number 10 ever again, Phil was a true Yankee. Period. Goodbye to a beloved friend of the Yankee family.
