    He and broadcaster Harry Caray had an ongoing dispute over who coined the phrase 'Holy Cow!'
    He put people down by calling them 'that huckleberry.'
    Near the end of his broadcasting career, he would leave the Yankee game innings before it ended, so he could beat the traffic.
    At Yankee Stadium, he was given a cow on a special day to honor him (the cow knocked him over).
    He was the first mystery guest on the TV show 'What's My Line' (February 2, 1950).
    He played for the New York Yankees for 13 seasons and helped win seven of nine World Series.
    His number (#10) was retired by the New York Yankees (August 4, 1985).
    He was the announcing voice in Meat Loaf's hit song 'Paradise By The Dashboard Light' (1977).
    He said: 'I'll never forget September 6th, 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 did? He gave me a different uniform and gave mine to Billy Martin. Can you imagine that! Guess Casey thought it'd be better if Billy got shot.'
