English, this sums it up,
"Rizzuto is also the announcer who provides the play-by-play commentary during the long spoken bridge in Meat Loaf's 1977 song "Paradise by the Dashboard Light." Ostensibly an account of a baseball sequence, it actually describes the singer's step-by-step efforts to lose his virginity. Rizzuto was reportedly unaware of the suggestive double entendre nature of his spoken contribution, and claimed to be annoyed by the song's success after he began receiving disapproving letters from clergymen. However, by the time he was given a gold record for the album, the mini-controversy had been smoothed over. "Phil was no dummy," said singer Meat Loaf. "He knew exactly what was going on, and he told me such. He was just getting some heat from a priest and felt like he had to do something. I totally understood.""
I know him as a humble, generous man who's playing skills were legendary and whose command of the English language as a Yankees broadcaster was shall we say, less than perfect. He retired before I was born but I fondly remember his "HOLY COW!" trademark commentary whenever something extraordinary took place on the field.
When he retired from broadcasting, the Yankees, in an on the field ceremony, bought him a cow with a halo over her head. The cow promptly knocked him over. Pics later if I can find them.
