"I'll never forget September 6, 1950. I got a letter threatening me, Hank Bauer, Yogi Berra and Johnny Mize. It said if I showed up in uniform against the Red Sox I'd be shot. I turned the letter over to the FBI and told my manager Casey Stengel about it. You know what Casey (Stengel) did? He gave me a different uniform and gave mine to Billy Martin. Can you imagine that! Guess Casey (Stengel) thought it'd be better if Billy (Martin) got shot." - Phil Rizzuto

My Dad met him one time and talked to him up at a Toronto Blue Jays Game. Said he was the nicest most genuine guy.
On that same trip he also met Billy Martin, Lou Pinella, and Bobby Mercer who were boozing it up at the bar LOL. ALL of them signed a ball for him which you don't see much these days.
