New York Yankees Exec’s Wife Killed After Tree Falls on Car in Storm

Cathy Tusiani was the wife of the New York Yankees’ senior VP of partnerships, Michael Tusiani; she died in a freak accident on Wednesday night.

Aaron Boone, the Yankees manager, was visibly upset and ended Friday’s pregame press conference by saying that the team would play with “heavy hearts” in remembrance of Cathy.

She was 50.

On Wednesday, a tree in Westchester County fell on her vehicle, killing her.

According to officials, around 5:30 p.m., the tree fell on her 2021 Toyota in Armonk, N.Y. She was traveling north on Route 128 near School St.

She was crushed while riding alone in the automobile.

One of the team’s spokespeople said that Michael Tusiani has been with the Yankees for over twenty years. As a result of Cathy Tusiani’s unexpected and terrible death, the organization said words cannot capture the devastating impact being felt within the Yankees family. It stated that the front desk staffers were fortunate to know and love Cathy for who she was: a kind, intelligent, humorous, and deeply loving wife and mother to Michael.

Police in North Castle and the surrounding Westchester County area are still investigating the accident. On Wednesday, a severe storm pounded the tristate region, and travel warnings were issued for all three states. This loosens soil and allows trees to become unstable, and high winds will exacerbate the problem.

According to the National Weather Service, Central Park had wind gusts of up to 59 mph and rainfall of more than 1.5 inches.

Delays on flights and downed trees were felt across the tri-state area.

Nearly 50,000 individuals in the area were left in the dark when they awoke on Thursday.

Even if the storm’s effects on the city and its suburbs were diminishing, it still affected the majority of New England and the Northeast.
