one of the cool things about this is that we learn how to say 'italian stallion' in french - l'etalon italien.  phil rizzuto is still phil rizzuto in any language.  cerone would re-sign with the yankees as a free agent in 1987 and late 1989, spending the 1988 and 1989 seasons in boston.  he's also among the select group of players to have played for both canadian teams.

voici à vous, 1985 rick cerone!
