The Yankees will wear No. 10 on the left sleeves of their uniforms for the rest of the season in honor of Phil Rizzuto.

There will be a moment of silence before the game today and the flags at the stadium are flying at half-staff. Flowers have been placed in Monument Park at his retired number.

The colors will be presented by an honor guard from Montclair, N.J.

“There’s something about the tradition and pride that goes with wearing this uniform and he played a big part in it,” Ron Guidry said.

Said Derek Jeter: “I’ll never forgget how nice he was to me when I first came up. That really stuck outm how he took the time to talk to me and make me feel part of everything. He was always a positive person.”
