Phil Rizutto, RIP.

UPDATE: Rudy out with a statement:

"I send my deepest condolences to Cora and the Rizzuto family for the loss of a truly great Yankee.

"As a lifelong Yankee fan, Phil was one of my childhood heroes. He was also the Yankee announcer I grew up with and it was a great privilege for me later in life to become his friend.

"He was an excellent ballplayer, superb announcer, one of the greatest bunters in the history of baseball and a truly fine person. Everyone will miss the Yankee Scooter."
