Here are the similar players to Rizutto according to basball-refernce:
  1. Art Fletcher
  2. Billy Rogell
  3. Billy Jurges
  4. Claude Ritchey
  5. Lonny Frey
  6. Marty Marion
  7. Doggie Miller
  8. Lyn Lary
  9. Jose Offerman
  10. Hughie Critz

Household names galore! I bet Jose Offerman doesn't even know that he is HOF caliber.
Phil Rizzuto is the Ron Santo of the Yanks.
