1979: The day that Thurman Munson was killed

leave a comment »



As I recall, the Yankees had a day off.  Also, the first place Orioles were scheduled to play a weekend series in New York.

Then we got the news that Thurman Munson had been killed in a plane crash.

Munson was a great catcher.  He ranks with some of the great Yankees of all time.   He broke with NY in 1969 and became a Yankee legend:  .292 career batting average, the 1976 AL MVP and 307 RBI over 3 years.
