RIP Scooter

I'm sad to report that Yankee great Phil "Scooter" Rizzuto has passed away. I'm pretty bummed. i never got to see the Scooter play, but i have many memories of listening to him on the radio and on WPIX when I was much younger. i always loved his enthusiasm and how he often would exclaim "Holy Cow!" on what he thought was a monster hit but turned out as a routine grounder. I'm smiling right now.
Godspeed Scooter. Rest in peace.
