Happy 59th birthday, Bobby Murcer!
Growing up a Yankee fan in the early 70s, Murcer was pretty much the only star on the roster, and so he was the one I rooted for the most. He had to try and replace a legend (Mickey Mantle), and of course, no one could do that. But Murcer played a solid center field, and was a consistent run-producer for those Ralph Houk-led teams.
Today, Murcer is a well-liked annoucer for the Yankees …
Happy Birthday Bobby!
