Tony Lazzeri’s Son Revels in Memories of Father’s Career

Tony Lazzeri’s father, also named Tony, was one of the stalwarts of the Yankees’ 1927 Murderer’s Row and later elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1991. The junior Lazzeri chose basketball over baseball, playing at the college level for Santa Clara in the early 1950s. In my book, Family Ties: A Comprehensive Collection of Facts and Trivia About Baseball’s Relatives, there is a chapter devoted to Major League Baseball players whose relatives chose another sport.

Attached is an article in the Seattle Times about the younger Tony Lazzeri’s recollection of his father’s days with Yankee greats Ruth, Gehrig, and DiMaggio.
