As a cameraman for WPIX-TV for nearly forty years, Duilio Costabile charmed players, co-workers and fans alike with his outsize personality and energetic sense of humor. As a freelance cameraman, for several years I was part of the crew that worked Yankees games alongside Duilio.

Growing up in Washington Heights in the 1970s, my dad and my brothers would cross the Macombs Dam Bridge to see the Yankees play. Little did I know that I would someday be shooting theses games in the House that Ruth Built. The old stadium had history—“tradition” was what Duilio would call it. I was always amazed at Duilio’s energy level, no matter what time of day, and I loved and miss his sense of humor. Although almost ten years had passed since I shot the footage by the time I began editing, I always had it running in my mind. I haven’t been to the new stadium but someone sent me a picture right after it opened that showed a young dark-haired Duilio next to a young Phil Rizzuto, hanging on a wall in the new stadium. Tradition.
