    He overly enunciated every syllable.
    He had tons of liver spots.
    He was over 90 and refused to step down and give someone else a job.
    Yankee travelling secretary Rick Cerrone did a perfect imitation of him, so that when he was unable to attend a few games he filled in for him. The Yankees did not inform the stadium crowd, so as not to disappoint those attending the game.
    He was famed for his clear and correct speech pattern.
