We remember Phil Rizzuto, who was born in Brooklyn on this day in 1917. Phil was born in the New York area and got to play shortstop with great Yankee teams.
His teammates included Joe DiMaggio and Yogi Berra, played for the legendary Casey Stengel and got to watch young Mickey Mantle break into baseball. (Hall of Famer was Yankees All-Star shortstop, broadcaster)
Last, but not least, Rizzuto played with the 1949-53 Yankees or the team that won the Series 5 years in a row.
