Happy Birthday Thurman Munson!!!

Happy Birthday Thurman Munson!!!

Today we celebrate the birthday and marvelous career of Mr. Thurman Munson.

An 11-year veteran, that spent his full career in New York wearing pinstripes, Munson was and still is a beloved Yankee.

Taken from us way to early, Munson passed away at the age of 32 in an airplane accident.

Still, what he was able to accomplish in just over a decade on the baseball field is what to this day holds him in very high regards in New York and in the baseball world.

The stats:  1970 Rookie of the Year, 1976 AL Most Valuable Player, 7-time All-Star, 3-time Gold Glove winner, 2 World Series titles, and the hearts of millions.

Happy Birthday Mr. Munson.  You are missed dearly!!!
