Jeter treasured time with Rizzuto

The marquee outside the Stadium says, “Phil Rizzuto 1917-2007.”

Back in February, Derek Jeter did a Q&A session with readers of this blog and mentioned that one of his favorite pieces of memorabilia was a signed photo of Phil Rizzuto.

The next day, I remember telling I was surprised by that answer and he told me how friendly Rizzuto was when he was a rookie. Jeter, of all the current Yankees, has the best sense of the team’s history.
