 NEW YORK (AP) -Phil Rizzuto, the Hall of Fame shortstop during the Yankees' dynasty years and beloved by a generation of fans for exclaiming ``Holy cow!'' as a broadcaster, died Tuesday. He was 89.
His death was confirmed by the Yankees. Rizzuto had been in declining health for several years and was living at a nursing home in West Orange, N.J.
Rizzuto, known as ``The Scooter,'' played for the Yankees throughout the 1940s and '50s and won seven World Series titles.
