I remember like...

I remember like it was yesterday...

American League Rookie of the Year in 1970.

Seven-time All-Star.

Runaway AL MVP in 1976.

I hated the NY Yankees ...still do. But I admired the talent, play, and heart of one Thurman Munson.

Thirty years ago today he died when his private jet crashed as he was making a series of practice landings.

Rest in peace, Thurman. You are gone but definitely not forgotten.


Short ESPN video remembering Thurman.
