Remember Phil Rizzuto and Mel Allen

Schenectady County and the rest of the Capital Region  has forever had a large brigade of maniacal New York Yankee fans, and it seems that two of their favorite broadcasters of Yankee games were Phil Rizzuto and Mel Allen.  They both had a unique style of calling the homerun.  Phil Rizzuto, “Hit deep to left, way back there, holy cow, it’s outa here.”  Mel Allen was my favorite, and he had the opportunity to call many a shot off the bats of the New York Yankee sluggers.  “That ball is going, going, it is gone!”
