I loved listening to Phil Rizzuto call Yankee games as a child growing up in the 70”s and 80’s. His voice, passion for the game and great baseball stories of legends of the past are something I will cherish forever. His legacy and memory he left behind as a true Yankee should live forever.

I have lived in this neighborhood my whole life. I was told that Phil Rizzuto grew up here and even after he became famous, he would come back to the neighborhood to visit friends. I was told that he would stop and signing autographs and baseballs for all of the neighborhood children. He lived a lovely life and was a real hometown hero in every sense of the word. I think it would be a wonderful way to honor his memory.

Phil Rizzuto was the epitome of a neighborhood kid making a good name for himself. He was an excellent Yankee shortstop, part of so many of their championship years and was an excellent Yankee broadcaster for so many more. He was honest and real. My Dad played ball with Phil on the streets of Bushwick, Brooklyn. He most certainly deserves the recognition of having the corner, where he lived named in his honor.

My Dad played ball with Phil (or "Philly", as my Dad called him) Rizzuto at Victory Field when they were young men. Years later, at a Yankee game Phil was calling, Dad approached the broadcast box and Phil jumped up and gave my Dad a big hug. A great player and an even greater human being!

I’m signing because as a heretofore lifetime resident of Queens (30+ years) and a Yankees fan: why not support this great occasion for the Scooter!

We should acknowledge the greats of any field that were born and raised in New York,that had a positive effect on society

I am signing because I grew up in Middle Village, went to JHS 119, played baseball every day on the fields of Juniper Valley Park, am a life-time Yankee fan, grew up during the late 60’s and 70’s listening to Scooter, Bill White, and Frank Messer - with Scooter yelling “Holy Cow”

So - I think there are more than enough reasons to carry out the co-naming
