Yankee Stadium Legacy: #20 Phil Rizzuto (Again)

Phil Rizzuto was part of seven World Series championship teams with the New York Yankees, claiming his first title in 1941. Rizzuto would have to wait until 1947 to get his second but would more than make up for lost time with five straight rings in pinstripes from 1949-1953. In 52 career World Series games Phil had 45 hits, 30 walks, 21 runs, and 10 stolen bases. On three different occasions Rizzuto had at least eight hits in a single World Series. #Clutch

20 days until Yankees Opening Day.
