FORMER YANKEE INFIELDER SUFFERS STROKE
Quick note. Former Yankee infielder Phil Linz has suffered a stroke.
According to the New York Daily News, "suffered a stroke last week and is recovering at Stamford Hospital, according to Marty Appel, the team's former public relations chief." We love Mary Appel here at BYB.
Anyway, Linz played 4 seasons for the Yankees, 1962 to 1965. According to the Daily News:
"...Linz, who later played two seasons for the Mets, hit .235 and 11 home runs during his seven-season Major League Baseball career. He also hit two home runs — including one of the fierce Bob Gibson — during the Yankees' losing effort against the Cardinals in the 1964 world Series."
We wish Linz and the Linz family the best during this difficult time.
