11.jpgBobby Murcer, a Yankee from 1965-74 and 1979-83, passed away this afternoon.

This statement from the Yankees:

It is with deep sadness that the New York Yankees announce the passing of former player, executive and broadcaster Bobby Murcer due to complications from brain cancer. He passed away Saturday afternoon surrounded by family at Mercy Hospital in Oklahoma City. He was 62 years old.

“Bobby Murcer was a born Yankee, a great guy, very well-liked and a true friend of mine,” Yankees Chairperson George M. Steinbrenner said. “I extend my deepest sympathies to his wife Kay, their children and grandchildren. I will really miss the guy.”

A family service will be held in the next several days in Oklahoma City. An additional celebration of his life will be held at a date to be determined. He is survived by his wife Kay, his children, Tori and Todd, and his grandchildren.

An All-Star player, Murcer became known to another generation of fans as an announcer. He also was very close with the players on the team and manager Joe Girardi, who broke down in tears when he heard the news.

More to come on this post as reaction comes in from around baseball.

UPDATE, 6:45 p.m.: This statement from John Filippelli, president, production and programming, the YES Network:

The Yankees have lost an icon, and we at YES have lost a great friend and colleague. Bobby was the ultimate pro, be it on the field or behind the microphone. He will be missed greatly. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his wife Kay and his family.

UPDATE, 6:49 p.m.: This statement from commissioner Bud Selig:

“All of Major League Baseball is saddened today by the passing of Bobby Murcer, particularly on the eve of this historic All-Star game at Yankee Stadium, a place he called home for so many years. Bobby was a gentleman, a great ambassador for baseball, and a true leader both on and off the field. He was a man of great heart and compassion.”

UPDATE, 7:31 p.m.: Here are statements from Bobby’s co-workers at YES:

Michael Kay: “Bobby was one of the finest human beings I’ve ever met. He handled his battle with a grace and class that was hard to fathom. For me personally, it’s an incredible loss. He was my idol growing up. I was lucky to work with him as a broadcaster, and it showed me that I had great taste as a kid. He was everything that you’d want in someone that you once looked up to. He lived up to every ideal that a little boy set for him. I’m going to miss him a lot. I miss him a lot already.”

Ken Singleton: “I will cherish all the wonderful times I had with Bobby in the booth. He was a real treasure, and it was amazing to witness the special relationship Bobby had with New York and with Yankees fans. I will miss him greatly. He was one of a kind.”

Kimberly Jones: “I will never forget how kind Bobby was or how much he cherished every day. Back in March 2005, in one of my first interviews with Joe Torre, he first declined to answer a harmless question then asked me to hold his gum. I extended my notebook and Joe placed the wad on the top page. I had no idea what to think. Two seconds later, Bobby was howling in laughter, as was Joe. It was through a practical joke that Bobby figured he would help the newcomer break the ice. And it was something Bobby and I laughed about many, many times in the years to come. He was always smiling, always upbeat and his spirit was undeniable. Everyone loved Bobby and we will miss him dearly.”

Bob Lorenz: “My greatest impression of Bobby is not as a player or broadcaster, but as a human being. He was a gentleman in the truest sense of the word, and that’s not a word we hear enough these days. He always treated people warmly and his positive, upbeat personality just made people he came in contact with feel better instantly. His presence had that kind of impact. I know when he walked into the studio at YES, there was a different kind of energy. We all knew we were in for a great day.

“After Bobby was diagnosed in December 2006, I could not believe how positive he remained and how he immediately accepted not only his condition, but the challenge of overcoming it. And he handled it with such grace and, no surprise, in his usual positive manner. And I’ve thought ever since, if Bobby can maintain that kind of positive attitude in the face of such adversity, we all should learn from that. And if we don’t, then we’re not paying attention to the lessons of a great man.

“Bobby’s loss as a broadcaster is immeasureable. As a lifelong Yankee, the stories and history just flowed out of him and captivated Yankees fans. His loss as a friend is even greater. His positive attitude rubbed off on you and made you a better, happier person every time he was around.”

David Cone: “He was so great in the clubhouse, just a pleasure to have in the clubhouse. The players really loved having him around. Old-Timers Day was always a special day for Bobby. When the Yankees would come to Kansas City when I was growing up there, he was always one of the guys I was trying to get an autograph from. He was a really good player, a really solid left-handed hitter.”

UPDATE, 8:20 p.m.: More statements via the Yankees:

Joe Girardi: “He was a great Yankee, but more importantly, he was a great friend to all of us. He always put others first, he cared about the game, and he cared whether we won or lost every day. He wore his emotions on his sleeve whether he was in the booth or as a player, and he played the game the right way. Bobby was the type of man that, I believe, got what life was about—trying to make life better for people around him. As a kid, I used to watch Bobby Murcer, and he was one of my heroes.”

Reggie Jackson: “If there’s a Hall of Fame for people, he’s in it. He enjoyed life, his family and people. He was such a good person, and he was appreciative of the people who cared so much for him.”

Goose Gossage: “He was an awesome person. His values and the way he lived his life were tremendous. He was a gentleman, a class act and friendly to everyone. He was the model of how we should all be.”

Don Mattingly: “Bobby is so special to me. I feel like he and I are connected. He’s the one that stepped down so graciously to give me my opportunity with the club. Anytime I think of the Yankees, and it’s often, I think of Bobby. Over the years, I’ve had the opportunity to know Bobby, and he’s a special person. He’s been a great joy in my life.”

Joe Torre: “It’s a great loss to the baseball world and to those who had the great pleasure of knowing Bobby the person. He was a special human being with great spirit, and I know that helped him during this time. My deepest sympathies go out to Kay and the entire Murcer family.”

Mel Stottlemyre: “The loss of Bobby is a major blow to those of us who played alongside him and considered him a friend. He was a special person, and I’ll always treasure the time I spent with him. He and (wife) Kay were classy people, and our families have bonded throughout the years.”

Bob Watson: “For me, Bobby was the ultimate Yankee, a great player and a great friend. He was my locker neighbor for three years and we talked about anything and everything. The Yankees family is going to miss him.”

Lou Piniella: “Bobby Murcer was a tremendously special person. He was a wonderful family man, a supportive teammate and a great friend. Anita and I send our heartfelt wishes to Kay and the entire Murcer family.”

Don Zimmer: “Bobby was a Yankee in every sense, a true Yankee. A class act. He was the type of person that was loved by everybody. He battled this thing and never gave up. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family.”

————

Joe Girardi was literally in tears after he got the news. Many of the older Yankees who knew Bobby had blank expressions. Everybody knew Murcer’s health had taken a turn but his death was hard to take because he was so genuinely liked.

Head trainer Gene Monahan, who has been with the team for 46 seasons, retold the great story about Murcer.

Following the death of Thurman Munson in 1979, Murcer delivered a moving eulogy at the funeral in Canton, Ohio. He returned with his teammates to New York and drove in five runs to defeat the Baltimore Orioles that night.

“To this day I don’t know how he got through it the way he did.” Monahan said. “To come back home and win that ball game for us … there’s no words for that.”

Derek Jeter said it well. “He was one of the most positive people you’d ever meet. You never heard anyone say something bad about him. He was somebody everybody liked,” the captain said.

Those of you old enough to remember know what Murcer meant to the team over five decades. It is like a death in the family for people within the organization.

We’ll leave the baseball for tomorrow. Thanks for reading today.

    CM from earlier thread hope you are still watching YES as they have Kay calling in so what you hoped to hear he is talking about

  4. Westerner99 July 12th, 2008 at 6:13 pm

    Bobby was a class act, through and through. I’ll miss your Southern Oklahoma drawl, Mr. Murcer!

  5. Rob July 12th, 2008 at 6:14 pm

    God bless Bobby Murcer. What a sad day to endure the passing of this great gentleman. Its terrible to see our heroes pass and great humans leave the scene – we are all poorer today and can share in his family’s loss.

  6. Rebecca--Optimist Prime--Mission 2708 July 12th, 2008 at 6:15 pm

    Seeing Girardi cry…that got to me.

  7. Rishi July 12th, 2008 at 6:15 pm

    thoughts and prayers are with his family…he will be sorely missed

  8. john habyan July 12th, 2008 at 6:15 pm

    a rare individual where when he talked you knew he was a geniunely nice person. he lived a wonderful life.

  9. mark - Play Moeller! Yankees can win it all with the players they have. July 12th, 2008 at 6:17 pm

    I thought he was better. I didn’t realize how sick he was this time around.

    My heart hurts a lot right now. A gentle Yankee. A good man.

    Rest in peace Bobby. Another Yankee in heaven.

  10. mark - Play Moeller! Yankees can win it all with the players they have. July 12th, 2008 at 6:17 pm

    As much as I can’t stand Michael Kay, right now I have nothing but respect for him. Hearing him break down is really sad.

  11. Jeff NJ July 12th, 2008 at 6:18 pm

    Wow another sad day for Yankee fans, two years in a row, first Rizzuto now Bobby. God Bless You Bobby Murcer, you represented the Yankees as well as anybody over the years. What can you say, he is the link from Mantle to today, and now he joins Mantle hopefully at a big ballpark in the sky (hopefully with a bar). Anyway, deepest sympathy to Kay and the family, 62 years old is too young to go.

  12. mel July 12th, 2008 at 6:19 pm

    Terrible loss for the Yankee family. Thoughts go out to his family. I’m sure they cherished every moment they shared this past year.

  13. Gene July 12th, 2008 at 6:20 pm

    RIP Bobby, you will be missed.

  14. MattNC July 12th, 2008 at 6:20 pm

    I remember being in the lower level in YS to watch Murcer hit a homer run into the short porch against the Tigers in 1970. It’s one of my favorite sports memories. Bobby was such a nice guy, he even shook hands with a hippie who ran onto the field later in the game.

    Bobby was my favorite player, even after he was traded away to SF. Like a lot of Yankee fans, I was crushed when that happened.

    I hope that Kay will be comforted by the fact that Bobby had a life filled with love and accomplishment, even if it was cut short.

  15. Paul July 12th, 2008 at 6:21 pm

    a great man…
    a great man of God

  16. CM July 12th, 2008 at 6:22 pm

    “CM from earlier thread hope you are still watching YES as they have Kay calling in so what you hoped to hear he is talking about”

    I’m listening right now. Amazing that they were able to get Lorenz in the studio that quick. Nancy’s great and all, but was over her head on this one.

    For Yankee fans in their late 20′s onward who grew up listening to Bobby or watching him play, this is great TV.

    For me this is weird. I turned 30 in April. My grandmother, childhood pastor, and best friend’s father all passed away this year. The inexorable passing of time seems to be shoving itself down my throat. Now, the death of a man I never knew, but whose voice I heard my whole life is gone, and I could not help but cry.

    I can’t even explain why, but I know that I’m sad I’ll never get to hear him call a game again or play in an another Old-Timer’s Day. I’m sad he won’t be at the new Yankee Stadium. I’m sad for his family and for Yankee fans everywhere because he was a part of our lives, a part of something important in our lives, and now he’s gone.

    And, with him a piece of ourselves.

    Have a good night everyone. I’m off to open a bottle of wine and toast a late great.

  17. Mark (Brett has arrived) July 12th, 2008 at 6:25 pm

    Murcer became known to another generation of fans as an announcer.

    This is my generation Pete, and I am so happy to of heard Bobby call games. I wish I got to see him play, but as an announcer he was always my favorite guy to listen to, and seemed to always have a smile on his face.

  18. TKinDC July 12th, 2008 at 6:27 pm

    Such a classy man who radiated good will and warmth.

    RIP Bobby.

  19. bodhisattva July 12th, 2008 at 6:28 pm

    His life was gentle, and the elements
    So mixed in him that nature might stand up
    And say to all the world, ‘This was a man!’

  20. Fran July 12th, 2008 at 6:30 pm

    I really believed that Bobby was going to beat this.
    My thoughts go out to his family.

  21. Catherine July 12th, 2008 at 6:31 pm

    Just got back from the FanFest, saw Mrs. Munson getting interviewed. I wonder if she had heard yet.

  22. Todd P July 12th, 2008 at 6:32 pm

    very sad news, seemed like he was one of the nicest guys to ever walk the face of the Earth……

  23. Alias July 12th, 2008 at 6:34 pm

    Oh damn.

    Damn.

    I thought he was going to make it.

  24. Global Warming July 12th, 2008 at 6:34 pm

    He wore #2 when he came back but he’ll always be #1 to me. Bobby Murcer, an all time great Yankee but an even better man.

    Win 27 for Bobby.

  25. Brian July 12th, 2008 at 6:35 pm

    sad news

    Mr. Murcer thanks for the memories

    you will always be remembered as a class act and a Yankee forever

  27. Joe July 12th, 2008 at 6:39 pm

    Bobby Murcer was my favorite player when I was a kid and I really liked him as a broacaster later in life. He loved the Yankees and their fans and we loved him back. He was one of the few big name players to give 2 years of his career to the US Army during the Viet Nam war although he was not sent overseas. The title of his autobiography is his epatath: Yankee For Life

  28. CM July 12th, 2008 at 6:39 pm

    Bill Madden of the Daily News has lost a bit on his fastball these last few years, but he ahs a must read Murcer piece up on the News’ site.

    this is really sad i kant believe this happen this will be a sad weekend in yankee stadium in a way r.i.p bobby murcer

  30. Vader July 12th, 2008 at 6:43 pm

    RIP Bobby Murcer, you will be missed.

    I’ll always remember him calling games, which he was great at. Since I was born in the early 70′s, and never really remember him playing, I will always remember him for what he did the night after Munson’s’ passing, which speaks to how strong of a man he must have been.

    Also, coming out of Oklahoma and having people talk about him in the same sentence as Mantle, must of been tough, but he sure did leave his mark on the Yankees.

  31. Jesse July 12th, 2008 at 6:45 pm

    God Bless Bobby Murcer and his family

  32. AlbanyYankee July 12th, 2008 at 6:45 pm

    It was September 26th, 1981 and I was 7 years old. My Dad took me to Yankee Stadium to see the Yankees play a night game against the Baltimore Orioles. I was disheartened as the Yankees went into the bottom of the ninth down 4-3. My Dad told me to keep my chin up and that Bobby Murcer would hit a pinch-hit home run in the bottom of the ninth to win the game. Well, sure enough, Bobby pinch-hit for Larry Milbourne and hit a 3-run homer to win it for the Yankees.

    Walking out of the Stadium and getting my hot pretzel (as was our tradition), my Dad pointed out the 137 ft high baseball bat outside the Stadium and said “That’s Bobby Murcer’s bat tonight”. He was right.

    And it is Bobby’s bat tonight too. Thanks for all the great memories, Bobby. My heart goes out to the Murcer family. You will be sorely missed. It is impossible to hold back the tears tonight.

  33. Mantlemurcer July 12th, 2008 at 6:46 pm

    I’m devestated. I, like Michael Kay, grew up idolizing Bobby. It’s a sad day.

  34. JK Bklyn July 12th, 2008 at 6:52 pm

    Baseball lost a great advocate today. He was everything that the game was meant to be about.

    Hard nosed player, great broadcaster.

    We’ll miss you Bobby!

  35. DLev July 12th, 2008 at 6:52 pm

    Bobby Murcer was my favorite player back in a time when for a Yankee fan there weren’t very many choices. He represented a hope for the future when he first came up, and as that hope gradually faded he was always the player who represented the Yankee tradition even when they weren’t winning. When he was traded away later in his career, even though I recognized it was the right move, I couldn’t quite reconcile myself to his being gone. It would have been nice if he could have played for some better Yankee teams. He deserved it.

  36. Old Goat July 12th, 2008 at 6:59 pm

    While Mantle was and always will be my favorite Yankee, Murcer held a special place in my heart. When he was just starting he was talked about as the replacement for the Mick. Murcer could never do that, but he left his own legacy and mark on baseball.

    Too many true Yankees are leaving us.

    I wish comfort to his family. He will be missed.

  37. randy l July 12th, 2008 at 7:01 pm

    when i think about bobby murcer passing on ,i think of thurman, and then mickey. billy. and clete boyer . the yankee team upstairs is getting very good.

    booby murcer was a very special man and a very special yankee.

  38. 2008 Yankees July 12th, 2008 at 7:02 pm

    I also watched Murcer growing up. Many a day I would go in my back yard and practice swinging just like him. And I will NEVER forget the game after Thurman died. He will always be one of my favorite Yankees.

  39. Joe from Long Island July 12th, 2008 at 7:06 pm

    I turned off the TV at the end of the game, so I could go to Mass, and when I got back home I went to check the blog befor dinner, of course, and saw the news.

    Bobby Murcer was the first Yankee hero that I rooted for when I was growing up in the 60s. Mickey Mantle had the great name, of course, but he was at the end of his career in the mid-60s. Bobby Murcer was the shining light of those bleak years. I remember being devsastated when he was traded to the Giants, even though it was for a terrific player in Bobby Bonds.

    A sad day.

  40. VT Yankeefan July 12th, 2008 at 7:07 pm

    I was always a Murcer fan but he became one of my heroes when he single handedly won the Yankee game that followed Munsons funeral.

    Requiescat in pacem

  41. YankeesLuv July 12th, 2008 at 7:10 pm

    I can’t believe it, so sad. We love you Bobby.

  42. Kevin July 12th, 2008 at 7:10 pm

    I am only 20 years old so never saw Bobby play, but I have heard many times during the broadcast booth and many times he would make me laugh with something he said along with his partners. He was a great man and will truly be missed by his personal family and the Yankee family. RIP Bobby…you were loved and will be missed.

  43. Yankee dave July 12th, 2008 at 7:17 pm

    My heart is saddened today with the lost of a true classy player who is one of the many icons for the Yankees. My thoughts are with his wife and family today. It was a pleasure hearing him with his southern drawl in the box. He’s one of the classiest Yankees ever to play the game and how he lived.

  44. grafxkid July 12th, 2008 at 7:18 pm

    ahhh, the lump in my throat. there are no words.

    let us pray…

  45. Jason from The Heartland July 12th, 2008 at 7:22 pm

    I’m really saddened about the news of Murcer’s passing. My most vivid memory of him as a player was when he drove in all five runs on August 6, 1979 to beat Baltimore, after eulogizing teammate and captain Munson who died on my tenth birthday, then left the field in tears. Murcer was one of those guys you NEVER heard anything bad about. What impressed me most through the last year and a half with his illness was how he didn’t speak about himself but those around him–his wife, family, and friends, but also the fans who supported him and rooted for his recovery. If I could only have half the grace and comportment in everyday life as Murcer did when he was ill. Very sad.

  46. Thomo July 12th, 2008 at 7:24 pm

    He showed what true heroism is all about – facing a fatal disease with dignity – a cancer that takes too many far too soon.

    My sincerest condolences to the Mercer family and to his Yankee teammates and colleagues.

  47. canocabrera July 12th, 2008 at 7:25 pm

    I am deeply saddened by this news. Bobby loved the game and seemed like such a great guy.

  48. john July 12th, 2008 at 7:32 pm

    rip, bobby. You will be missed, you were a true class act. Old Timers day will never be the same.

  49. Law and Order July 12th, 2008 at 7:32 pm

    At least he gets to see Thurmon again.

    I wonder how Sweet Lou is doing.

  50. Rebecca--Optimist Prime--Mission 2708 July 12th, 2008 at 7:38 pm

    Law and Order: Well said.

  51. stuart July 12th, 2008 at 7:38 pm

    I remember the Munson game the day they buried him like it was yesterday. I have it on VCR tape.. My favorite was Thurman my brother it was bobby. He was a classy good guy who will be missed..

    He loved being a Yankee. My friend has cancer and met Bobby at MD Anderson(Hospital) in Houston he said Bobby could not be any nicer. My friend called me on the cell phone passed it to Bobby and we chatted for a few minutes. This was about 1 yr. ago.. My friend saw him at the hospital alot and said no one was nicer then bobby murcer… Why do the good die young????

  52. S.A.- I believe in this team but can the offense stop being so offensive? July 12th, 2008 at 7:41 pm

    Just a sad day.
    He was one of the best. Miss ya Bobby.

  53. JoeT 28 in 09!! RIP BM.... .220 average, 17% CS = AL ALL STAR!! July 12th, 2008 at 7:55 pm

    Stuart – I assume they’ll replay that game on YES in the next day or so. I’ve only seen highlights of it and that is one of the most courageous acts on or off a field that has ever happened. I really hope they show that game so the younger generation of Yankees fans (such as myself) can see him play in one of the greatest games ever. Rest in Peace Bobby… our prayers are with you and your family. I also hope the Yankees will wear a band or his number on their jersey’s for the rest of the year… maybe for tomorrows game Jeter could play with no number on his back for Bobby.. good idea?

  54. JoeT 28 in 09!! RIP BM.... .220 average, 17% CS = AL ALL STAR!! July 12th, 2008 at 7:57 pm

    oh, and for the all-star game I’d love to see his number in the grass out in center field… I think that would be a fitting tribute for Bobby.

  55. This Year July 12th, 2008 at 7:59 pm

    Iremember as a kid that my sadness at the decline of my beloved Mick was the appearance of is successor from the same Oklahoma plains, signed by the same scout who had signed the Mick, Tom Greenwade. I was positive he would be just as great. I was wrong– but I was right. A very good, not great player, he was something more important– he was a great person. I am not ashamed to say that I shed a few tears today at his passing. I never knew him, but I will miss him.

  56. Ed July 12th, 2008 at 8:06 pm

    From the time he came up until he was traded to San Francisco and then when he came back he was all the good the New York Yankees are about. He was a hero of mine and always will be. Maybe the bleacher creatures will do a special roll call for him this Tuesday at the All-Star Game because in many ways Bobby Murcer was an All-Star.
    Then again on the final day at Yankee Stadium they should roll call Bobby and all the great Yankees past and present.

  57. michael July 12th, 2008 at 8:09 pm

    man, after the game i went outside to do some gardening, looks like i missed the news.

    very, very sad. he was so positive, so full of life, i never thought this disease would get him.

  58. will July 12th, 2008 at 8:10 pm

    When something like this happens to such a great man, and that’s a recurring theme everyone says.. about his character.It makes you think about the smallest things in our lives that we worry about. There is others who are going through 100x more difficult stuff, than worrying about a date or a girl calling you back or what we’re going to eat for dinner.

    If only everyone could put as much into life as he did.

  59. Joel July 12th, 2008 at 8:17 pm

    I cannot believe Bobby Murcer has passed. He truly was a Yankee icon for me. It’s a very sad day.

  60. Lets try. July 12th, 2008 at 8:18 pm

    Wow, this really hit me.

  61. Al from BK July 12th, 2008 at 8:18 pm

    Bobby will be missed, also the Rays are losing 7-0 maybe the Yanks can go on a 2nd half run Mr. Murcer will be smiling in Heaven.

  62. Uptown Girl July 12th, 2008 at 8:21 pm

    We miss you already, Bobby.
    This is a sad day for Major League Baseball, and particularly for all of us Yankee fans who loved and cherished him so much. We can all learn from how Bobby handled the last few years, and his entire career for that matter–with great class and an upbeat take on things. Perhaps that is his greatest legacy.

  63. MoBoy(aka McLovin) July 12th, 2008 at 8:23 pm

    Surpised Murcer is not bigger news on the ESPN and Fox Sports website.Barely mentions Murcer’s death.

    If Tiger Woods has a cold or Favre retires a 5th time ESPN has a week long engagement on them and just them.

    Hopefully they have more about Murcer.

    R.I.P

    Bobby Murcer

    The battle that Bobby fought is over but he will never be forgotten.
    He leaves loved ones and family behind along with a large legion of fans and now he can rejoin his good friend Captain Thurman Munson and other Yankees who have passed on and watch from above.

  65. jason July 12th, 2008 at 8:25 pm

    Pete – Thank you for the wonderful quotes and hard work. It is truly impressive when one is so universally regarded as was Murcer. Hopefully, the Yankees and MLB will pay a fitting tribute to him on Tues.

  66. M. Francessa PTRS 08 July 12th, 2008 at 8:30 pm

    Not to be insensitive but this is like the 4th time i’ve asked this question…

    Anybody know who if any players we may have in the “Futures Game” Tomorrow?
    I know last year Joba and Ian were in but I’ve not heard of anybody that may be from the farm taking part.

    Ps…Murcer was a sweet man and a great Yankee he will be missed.

  67. Jeff July 12th, 2008 at 8:31 pm

    Bobby Murcer was a great Yankee, great announcer, a great person.

    He’ll be missed by many.

  68. Dan July 12th, 2008 at 8:32 pm

    the only Yankees in the future game are Jesus Montero and Ramiro Pena.

  69. Kevin from Edmonton July 12th, 2008 at 8:32 pm

    RIP Bobby Murcer!

  70. PAT M. July 12th, 2008 at 8:33 pm

    Just heard the news about Bobby Murcer….I was fortunate enough to have met in several times during Spring Training in 72….Even with the impending strike he was always preaching about the love of the game…Many of us were non-roster players so the work stoppage didn’t effect us dircetly, but it was a indoctranation that it was a businees first and then a game….Odd that he was best friends with Thurman who could be a real ball buster….Remember him spitting tobbaco juice on my sanitaries during a BP session……Sad to lose so many childhood Yankee idols…..

  71. Bronxbyte July 12th, 2008 at 8:33 pm

    A very special man has left this earth and the hallowed ground of the Stadium he graced so well both as a player and his well respected broadcast views.
    Rest in peace Bobby. You fought your battles with the class you were all about …..

  72. S.A.- I believe in this team but can the offense stop being so offensive? July 12th, 2008 at 8:37 pm

    M. Francessa PTRS 08-Jesus Montero and Ramiro Pena in the futures game

  73. M. Francessa PTRS 08 July 12th, 2008 at 8:38 pm

    Thank you Dan and SA ;-)

  74. pat July 12th, 2008 at 8:41 pm

    Truly sad news but his pain and suffering is over. RIP Bobby Ray.

  75. Ravi July 12th, 2008 at 8:57 pm

    Bobby we will miss seeing you in the oldtimers game and your great sense of humor and kindness. Our prayers are with Kay and the entire Bobby Murcer family

  76. MikeEff July 12th, 2008 at 8:59 pm

    great job assembling all those quotes for us pete.

  77. Yardley July 12th, 2008 at 9:01 pm

    Feels like I lost a family member. So long, Bobby.

  78. jay destro July 12th, 2008 at 9:02 pm

    total bummer. hope bobby and thrum are playing some catch and talking about old times.

  79. Dee July 12th, 2008 at 9:12 pm

    M. Francessa PTRS 08:

    Find a new thread to ask that dumb question. How about going to ESPN.com? That too hard?

    Bye, Bobby.

  80. Mandalay July 12th, 2008 at 9:15 pm

    Can we win one for Bobby tomorrow?

  81. Old Goat July 12th, 2008 at 9:17 pm

    I think its amazing that all those quotes above that Pete gave reads like a who’s who in baseball. All touched by the man that was Murcer.

  82. Al from BK July 12th, 2008 at 9:19 pm

    When YES was showing those clips of Bobby I broke out into tears. This is hurtful as both a fan of the Yanks and of Mr. Murcer the human being I regret never meeting the man. I was at spring training a few times and never managed to spot Bobby. I hope he knows how much us fans have missed his voice in the booth the past couple of years and how much we miss him already. God take good care of this Gentleman.

  83. gayle July 12th, 2008 at 9:25 pm

    Pete thanks for posting all these quotes. I did find something that really moved me and I think pretty much says it all about Bobby Murcer. It is from Tyler Kepner;s blog. I urge all to read. I have to ay I never really thought about it all that much but Gene Monahan is probably one heck of a guy when it comes to Yankees history and the amount of time he has spent with the Yankees is pretty amazing

    http://bats.blogs.nytimes.com/.....by-murcer/

  84. Evan July 12th, 2008 at 9:31 pm

    What blanck happened?!!!

    He made an amazing comeback last year, broadcast through final week of the season.

    What went wrong?

  85. george July 12th, 2008 at 9:38 pm

    Bobby was so much fun. he was an exciting CF back in the day, and then was always a gas as an announcer. murcer is a name that will always bring a laugh to my heart.

  86. Seth July 12th, 2008 at 9:39 pm

    Thank you for all the quotes, Pete. What a sad, sad day in Yankeeland.

  87. Joe from Long Island July 12th, 2008 at 9:39 pm

    That was a tremendous piece of writing by Tyler Kepner, that gayle referenced above. I highly recommend it to everyone here.

  88. mel July 12th, 2008 at 10:00 pm

    Boy, the Gene Monahan transcript was very moving.

    We don’t know much about what goes on within the Yankees, but I think he gave us a glimpse of what it’s like.

    That whole ‘True Yankee’ thing that everyone laughs at? It’s right there. It’s passing the baton, from Mantle to Murcer and down the line to Jeter and on to the next generation of Yankees. Teaching the next guys how to act, carry yourselves with dignity, and leave it all on the field.

  89. Mark Alan July 12th, 2008 at 10:11 pm

    Cancer is insidious.

    Today, it took both Bobby Murcer and Tony Snow, two men I’m certain had many things planned for their tomorrows. It took others we do not know.

    For what it’s worth, I’ve survived, and at times like this, I wonder why me.

    Stay free, Bobby. You were a Yankee.

  90. RSM July 12th, 2008 at 10:20 pm

    I never met Bobby Murcer, but I feel like I lost a member of the family today. He’s been a Yankee in one form or another as long as I’ve been a Yankee fan (1970). His persona conveyed that he was a good man, and the above quotes confirm that.

    R.I.P. Bobby, you will be missed.

  91. AlbanyYankee July 12th, 2008 at 10:21 pm

    Nothing will make Bobby Murcer happier than watching Shea Stadium get torn down from his outfield spot in heaven. He hated that dump.

  92. Joe from Long Island July 12th, 2008 at 10:23 pm

    mel – You said it.

    Roger Angell, the noted baseball writer, once wrote that there is nothing so patently contrived and commercially exploitative as a professional sports team. On the face of it, it is ridiculous for any of us to root or care about any of it. Yet, so many of us do care. And it’s people like Bobby Murcer who make it all possible for us to believe, to care, like we do. Yes, it does appear childish at times. Yet I can not imagine not rooting for my team. And someone like Bobby makes it possible.

  93. Rebecca--Optimist Prime--Mission 2708 July 12th, 2008 at 10:24 pm

    Baseball Tonight had a very nice segment on Murcer.

  94. Paul July 12th, 2008 at 10:38 pm

    I think that Bobby would find it fitting that he passed on the day that Mickey Mantle’s HR total was passed by Alex Rodriguez. His career and Mickey’s were intertwined, and he did a wonderful job of distinguishing himself as a player despite not being blessed with the unique talents of the Mick.

    I have a great fondness for Bobby as a player, as I became a fan when Mickey was in his last years and showing only flashes of what he once was. Bobby was the new hope, and he came through alot. I particularly remember being in the hospital for some unpleasant (but not life threatening) surgery in June 1970 and the Yanks had a doubleheader against Cleveland. In the first game, even though Stottlemyre was pitching, everything went wrong and then Yankees got blown away. Even the famous folly floater moment, when Tony Horton popped out to Munson (and it was an amazing catch), made small consolation, as did a homer by Bobby in his last at bat.

    The second game, Bobby hit three more in his next official at bats (there was a walk in between somewhere) and when the third went out in the eighth (called as I recall by the long forgotten Bob Gamere) I and my roommates (all in for the same procedure) went wild. So Bobby you cheered up three kids in the hospital for around a week, and may you find the same cheer in the world to come. No doubt you’re kibitzing with Thurman and giving the Mick a ride about being passed by ARod. My condolences to your family. Paul.

  95. Bob(The Original) July 12th, 2008 at 10:39 pm

    I’ve been feeling so very sad and down since I heard Bobby died.

    But then I started thinking about how courageous and upbeat he was throughout his whole battle and I smile a little bit.

    I think Bobby wouldn’t want anyone to be sad, but to enjoy life and enjoy baseball the way he did.

    Long live the great memories he left us all with.

  96. Brandon (Jeter GIDP: 14) (Johan Santana HR count: 13 and a SP) July 12th, 2008 at 10:47 pm

    Bob your not alone alot of us feel that way. I know Bobby would want us to live our life but it’s hard when events like this happpen. I mean wow the first game Brett Gardner runs havoc on ML pitching, the day Rodriguez and Jeter had monumental HR 2 days before the All Star festivities, it’s almost like Bobby wanted it this way.

    What’s sad is he said on YES that he would want to see new Yankees Stadium before he passes, Now he can’t in person but Bobby we know your one ghost that will always be welcomed to Yankees Stadium you will be missed in life.

  97. gayle July 12th, 2008 at 10:53 pm

    In term of seeing the new Yankee Stadium although he didnt see it completed it was said in YES that when he was last here int he city broadcasting which was a few month ago he an his wife did go over and see the new stadium and had a tour so although unfortunately he wont see it christened with baseball he did get a chance to see it in somewhat of a good form

  98. 86w183 July 12th, 2008 at 10:54 pm

    Earlier this year I lost a dear colleague to brain cancer. She was 40 and had two small children. My heart was broken that day as it is today knowing that another has been taken by this cruel, insidious bastard known as brain cancer.

    May all of our thoughts and prayers go to Bobby and his family, to Beth and hers, and to all those who leave us too soon and the loved ones they leave behind.

    One thing we can take from this is the reminder to appreciate those who positively impact our lives on a daily basis; whether they do it on the ball field, on the air, in the work place, or (more often than all of those) in our homes. As we grieve for our loss and the loss felt so much more profoundly by the Murcer family, let us enjoy each other more, argue with each other less and reemember that one way or the other we’re all in this together.

    God Speed Bobby, tell the Mick we send our love.

  99. John Grosner July 12th, 2008 at 11:20 pm

    Bobby Murcer was a real class act in all aspects of life. He will be missed dearly.

  100. Rob July 12th, 2008 at 11:22 pm

    Bobby Murcer was my favorite player growing up. I remember being absolutely crushed when he was traded to S.F. I again was crushed today when I heard the news of his passing. RIP Bobby, one of the greatest of all Yankees.

  101. Vicki July 12th, 2008 at 11:23 pm

    When my mom told me the news a few hours ago, I was shocked and saddened. It’s weird, ’cause it’s not like I knew him personally, and the deaths of public figures usually don’t affect me so much, but Bobby’s did. He just seemed like a really nice guy, a very genuine person. I’m too young to know him as a player, but I started watching the Yankees regularly 9 years ago. I didn’t have cable, so he was the one I always saw broadcasting the games at first. I always found him so likable. I always enjoyed him joking around with the players on Old Timers Day. I also love that old clip of him chasing a ball behind the monuments.

  102. PJH July 12th, 2008 at 11:28 pm

    Its so sad to lose a great guy like Bobby. He was a great ball player and broadcaster. He will be missed by all. Most of all Old-Timers Day will never be the same without him. He was always great entertainment with his goal of hitting a homerun and having different Yankee player as his hitting coach each and every year. RIP Bobby, we will all miss you.

  103. UtilityMan July 12th, 2008 at 11:34 pm

    Good Evening To All

    Very Very Sad News.
    I am so gad he made it back to the booth earlier this year.
    I was just thinking about him two weeks ago,wondering if he would be doing some games soon.
    Three things Ill always remember about Bobby–Taking that cap off of Rizzutos head during a pre-game show on WPIX.Retiring so taht Donnny Baseball could join the Roster.And doing thoose interviews and commentating during Old Timers Day standing in the OF.
    R I P Bobby #1

  104. Cassandra July 12th, 2008 at 11:42 pm

    Does anyone else wonder about the rise in brain cancer and rise of cell phone usage?

  105. bill from va July 12th, 2008 at 11:54 pm

    bobby was my boyhood hero. in ’69 all the neighborhood became mets fans. like a flock of sheep. even at 7 years old i went against the crowd and somehow discovered bobby murcer.some team called the yankees. my dad and uncle were horrified. lifelong giants and dodgers fans. a whole new world opened up for me; rooting for bobby’s yankees. soon i learned they weren’t always ‘bobby;s yankees’. and they weren’t always so bad. when bobby was traded to the giants i was heartbroken. still to this day. somewhat. my first hard lifes lesson i geuss. there have been many more lessons. but,like a girl, you never forget the first one. nor, your first hero. a sad day, today, for me.

  106. AzBob July 12th, 2008 at 11:57 pm

    A great Yankee and a greater person. We will miss you Bobby. We were blessed to have known you.

  107. JR Yankees July 13th, 2008 at 12:03 am

    This is very sad news for any Yankee fan…for any baseball fan for that matter.

    I am not old enough to have been able to watch Bobby Murcer play the game but I am intelligent enough to realize what he meant to the Yankee organization.

    It was a pleasure to have been able to listen to his broadcasts over the years, all of which were filled with his humor and many, many baseball tales.

    Mr. Murcer will be missed greatly and his family will be in all of our thoughts and prayers.

  108. murphydog July 13th, 2008 at 12:18 am

    When Bobby came back from the first bout with his illness, he talked at length about his faith and the role it played in his life and in his battle with cancer. Today some have suggested that Heaven has a new center fielder. I suspect, however, that Bobby was playing on God’s team long before he ever put on the pinstripes.

  109. MC July 13th, 2008 at 12:19 am

    Just a decent man, no one ever said a bad word about Bobby Murcer. The world could use a lot more Bobby Murcer’s!!

  110. Rebecca--Optimist Prime--Mission 2708 July 13th, 2008 at 12:21 am

    Just think–Bobby and Thurman now, they can play against Phil and the Mick.

    What a game that would be.

  111. JoeT 28 in 09!! RIP BM.... .220 average, 17% CS = AL ALL STAR!! July 13th, 2008 at 12:27 am

    Rebecca – the Yankees legends team in Heaven is pretty amazing…. i bet they’re beating the “black sox.”

    The only thing that can make me smile a little (i stress the little) is knowing that Bobby and Thurman are together again

    God bless them both.. and everyone here as well

  112. Phil July 13th, 2008 at 12:30 am

    What a tough day. I hope everyone’s hanging in there. He was my favorite Yankee.

  113. Rebecca--Optimist Prime--Mission 2708 July 13th, 2008 at 12:36 am

    JoeT: I can see this big smile on Bobby’s face when he gets up there and sees Thurman…

  114. Carmine July 13th, 2008 at 12:38 am

    Bobby will be missed. He and his family will be in my thoughts. Always one of my favorite broadcasters and even though I’m too young to remember him as a player, I’ve heard nothing but great things about him on and off the field.

  115. Marcus July 13th, 2008 at 12:41 am

    God Bless Bobby Murcer.

  116. pat m in ct July 13th, 2008 at 12:43 am

    When you see a trememendous outpouring of love and admiration across generations of people for someone like we’ve seen for Bobby, it tells you volumes. Reggie Jackson hit the nail on the head with his comment about if there was a Hall of Fame for people, Bobby Murcer would be in it. As a young fan in the seventies, I felt like I had just gotten to know him when he was traded away. It was a verrrry happy day when he was brought back. He brought a warmth to the broadcasting booth that will be missed.

    IIRC, he did show up in the booth for an inning earlier this season right? It would be nice if YES could run it again.

  117. Rebecca--Optimist Prime--Mission 2708 July 13th, 2008 at 12:46 am

    Yes, Bobby was in the booth for an inning this season, I’ll see if I can find it.

  118. Diane July 13th, 2008 at 12:56 am

    When Bobby’s memoir came out earlier this year, I wanted to go to his NYC book signing. Unfortunately I got stuck at work that day, and never made it to say “thank you” and “hang in there” to him.

    He was my first favorite player … and he made me a fan of the Yankees during those dreary early 70s. I was crushed when he was traded, but thrilled when he came back, even if he wasn’t going to be a full-time player.

    A great ballplayer … and an even better human being.

    I’ve wept untold times this evening … :-(

  119. joeman July 13th, 2008 at 1:08 am

    RIP…Bobby you had class & will be missed

  120. Michael July 13th, 2008 at 2:06 am

    RIP bobby..you will be surely missed..

  121. Tim July 13th, 2008 at 2:34 am

    Bobby Murcer was one of a kind, he was the most upbeat, positive person I have ever witnessed in my whole life, and I only saw him on television as a player and then later when he broadcast Yankee games and was an in-studio host for YES broadcasts, but from what I’ve read he was just like that in his everyday life. When you think of what being a true Yankee means, there are only a handful of players over the years that come to mind, ie, Lou Gehrig, Derek Jeter, Thurman Munson, Paul O’Neill, and Bobby Murcer. His legacy will be that he made every situation that he was a part of a little bit brighter and everyone that he came in contact with a little bit happier. You can’t ask for anything more than that from a human being. Too bad there aren’t more like him in this world. RIP Bobby!

  122. Yanksgal07 July 13th, 2008 at 2:40 am

    I went to an autograph show in January and Bobby was there. I was walking down the hallway and he was walking toward me. I stopped and told him how happy I was that he was on the road to recovery. He gave me one of his big smiles and pulled me close and hugged me..he thanked me for the kind words. That day he looked a little frail but quite good for all he had been through and his hair was growing back …you could see it sticking out from under his baseball cap.

    I remember watching him play and even tho’ I realized he would never be the Mick as a player and as much as I loved Mickey, my all time favorite…I would have to say Bobby succeeded in overshadowing Mickey in a much more important role …as a person.

    I know Bobby idolized Mickey and I’m sure he’s up there talking some baseball with The Mick, Thurm & Scooter as I type.

    May he Rest in Peace and God Bless him for all the happy moments he gave everyone as a player and a broadcaster.

    Gone but never to be forgotten….Bobby Murcer

  123. Peter Rabbit July 13th, 2008 at 2:41 am

    I was out all day on a beach trip. I found out about Bobby at around 5-6pm on 880am. The news came as a total shock, as with all of us in the Yankees family.

    “The Yankees family”. Us fans are a part of it, at least that’s how Bobby made us feel.

    The news stuck with me for the rest of day. You were a great man Bobby. A fine man.

  124. Potch July 13th, 2008 at 3:44 am

    I found out about this watching a live broadcast for mlb.com at Fan Fest today.

    Seth Everett was interviewing Jeff Nelson and mentioned sad news from the Yankees. Honestly, my first thought was something happened to Whitey Ford (much older than Bobby, also fighting cancer). But then they passed along the sad, sad news of Bobby’s passing and you could see it take the air out of the Yankee fans watching.

    Nelson suggested he was probably up there calling a game with the Scooter.

    A nice thought, but I’m guessing he was probably giving Thurm a bear hug. It’s been a long time since the two friends had seen each other. I’m sure their other good buddy, Lou Piniella was very saddened by this news today.

    As am I. We. All of us Yankee fans.

    Thank you Bobby for the many years of joy you brought to us all on the field and in the booth. Some of my happiest memories of you will actually be you picking a new hitting coach every year for Old Timers day, and kidding around with the guys in the booth from the field.

    My deepest sympathy to the entire Murcer family.

  125. RockinDaBronx July 13th, 2008 at 4:05 am

    man I felt like someone punched me in the stomach. This one hurts in a big way. Miss ya Bobby.

  126. Scott July 13th, 2008 at 4:09 am

    Bobby, thanks for all the memories, both on the field and in the broadcast booth.
    I know as you crossed heaven’s home plate, Thurman was at the top step of the dugout, waiting to greet you.
    Perhaps the Yankees can re-retire No. 1. After all, No. 8 is retired twice for Yogi and Bill Dickey. Why not for Billy Martin and Bobby Murcer?

  127. Patrick July 13th, 2008 at 5:30 am

    It is an honor for me to pay tribute to one of my favorite Yankees and a wonderful person – Bobby Murcer.
    Strangely enough, my fondest memory of Bobby Murcer was off the baseball diamond. Back in the 1970′s when Murcer was playing for the Yankees, a friend of mine was a NYC Police Officer, and for a period of time he worked the Yankee ballgames in the evening. Around the 7th inning of the ballgame, many police officers would head for the exits and prepare to direct the heavy traffic following the ballgame.
    .
    This one night my police officer friend, was met by a father and his paraplegic son. The father approached my friend, telling him what a fan his son was of Bobby Murcer and asked if he could possibly get Bobby Murcer to sign his son’s baseball for him. My friend, surprised by this request simply said, that he would see what could do. The little boy, with the support of braces, simply stood by his father’s side, hoping his wish would be granted. My friend “parked himself” at the door where the Yankees exit after the game.
    .
    When Murcer walked out the door, my friend simply said, “Mr. Murcer!” Bobby kept on walking. My friend, then reached out his arm and placed it on Bobby’s shoulder. Quite startled, Murcer stopped and looked at the police officer. My friend then said, “Mr. Murcer, you see that little boy over there, the one using the braces? That boy adores you and would love to have your autograph.” Bobby walked strait for the boy, and as he reached the boy, Bobby began to speak to him. Immediately the boy’s father, overcome with emotion, broke down and cried. Bobby then signed the little boy’s baseball and wished him well.
    .
    Truly a moment that I am sure was never forgotten by that little boy, his father or Bobby Murcer.
    .
    Bobby, you will be missed and your memory will be cherished. May you rest in the hands of our great God and Savior.

  128. raf July 13th, 2008 at 6:01 am

    Rest In peace

  129. VTyankee fanrest in peace, Bobby Murcer July 13th, 2008 at 7:47 am

    Bobby Murcer was my first Yankee hero. I was crushed when he was traded to SF.

    I was suprised(like so many others) to hear of his passing yesterday after hearing so many reports of that he was getting better and planning to return to the broadcasting booth for YES. I got the news late last night after being away on a trip all day and honestly shed some tears(and still am).

    One of my favorite personal memories of him is back in 1973 or’74 (the last year of the old yankee stadium) my father was brave enough to take a few of my friends and I on a roadtrip from Lebanon, NH to the bronx for the old timers game. My memory has nothing to do what happen during the game. We were driving around the stadium looking for a place to park and stopped for a light at an intersection. Bobby Murcer was driving a car and had also stopped at the light presumably heading to the players parking lot. I waved to him. I’m not sure if he saw me, but I was excited to get a glimpse of my favorite player.

    Bobby thanks for the memory.

  130. Sport Quote Quy July 13th, 2008 at 7:52 am

    I’m lucky enough to have watched Murcer make his return to the Yankees and then follow him thorugh boradcasting. He will be missed.

  131. Bart July 13th, 2008 at 7:57 am

    Bobby was special to all of us who were fans when he came up. We were devastated when the team traded him; exstatic when he returned near the end of his career. But the great thing was that many thousands, maybe even millions, got to really know him through the Yankee broadcasts. His heartfelt on-air remembrances of Thurman Munson provided a tangible connection to the ’70s Yankees as he hmself provided the link to the closing of the 50s-60s dynasty. He was happily cherished with Mickey, Thurman, Mattingly, and by continuous association Bernie and Jeter. More than a link he was a great player and a greater man – a Great, Great Yankee. He could easily repeat Gehrig’s words and all of us would know they were equally his own.

  132. angela July 13th, 2008 at 8:04 am

    i just found out and am in tears after reading all the comments.

  133. Dee July 13th, 2008 at 8:04 am

    Truly a sad day for Yankee fans. This came as a complete shock to me, I’ve been wondering when he’s coming back. In fact when Michael Kay and Kenny had the teaser couple weeks ago about a special appearance in the booth, I thought Awesome, Bobby’s back! It turned out to be Jim Kaat.

    Bobby had said he wanted to live long enough to see the new Stadium, I hope the Steinbrenners do something for him on Opening Day. Rest in peace Bobby. We miss you.

    I became a Yankees fan in 1986 and hadn’t yet learned about all of the great history and tradition. We went to a Twins/Yankees series in Minneapolis and ended up staying at the same hotel as the team. We had just stepped into the elevator to go up to our rooms when a couple of men got on the elevator with us. They had been out for a morning run and were headed back to their room. They were very gracious and friendly to us. My friend told me that the one was Bobby Murcer and I had no idea who he was.

    I didn’t get to see him as a player, but really enjoyed him as a broadcaster. Such a wonderful person and personality! He will be missed tremendously!

    Thank you to all of the fans here for sharing your memories! It makes the sadness a little easier to bear.

    I’m praying for his family that they will be overwhelmed with good memories and the joy of knowing he has no more suffering.

    Thanks Pete, for your sensitive coverage.

    A large void has been left within the Yankee organization and baseball itself with the passing of Bobby.
    The likes of a Bobby Murcer don’t come along all that often but when they do their presence is greatly felt.

  136. Jackson July 13th, 2008 at 8:51 am

    Bobby was my instant favorite when I started watching Yankee baseball back in 1969. I remember when watching the games I couldn’t wait for his turn at bat. One of the first games I went to with my dad and my older brother was in 69. My brother was a huge Met fan. Yannks were trailing the Angels 2-0 going to the 9th inning, and my brother was dogging me all game long. Bobby came up to pinch hit in the 9th with 2 on and 2 out against lefty Clyde Wright, and he hit a 3 run homer to win the game. I almost killed my brother I was jumping all over him so much. I cired when he was traded back in 74, and was elated when they got him back in 79. I will miss him dearly.

  137. jennifer July 13th, 2008 at 9:53 am

    I don’t even know what to say? I was literally on the verge of crying when I found out. So sad, we lost a great man yesterday. He will be missed. :(

  138. Doreen July 13th, 2008 at 10:00 am

    Like a few people here, right after the game, we clicked off the t.v. to go to Mass and then directly to the Trenton Thunder game. It wasn’t until 10 p.m. that we turned on the t.v. and were re-watching the game encore and saw the scroll at the bottom of the screen that mentioned Bobby’s passing.

    It wasn’t a surprise; when they said a couple of weeks ago he was suffering from shingles, we (my husband and I) talked about how weakened his body must be and how much more difficult it was going to be for him to fight going forward. We figured it was a short matter of time.

    But, though it wasn’t unexpected, it still felt like a blow to the stomach to read it. Though it wasn’t unexpected, somewhere inside you (I) thought, if anyone could beat this, it would be Bobby Murcer. But ultimately, and sadly, no one can beat the cancer he had.

    What he did was to make the last couple of years of his life even more inspirational than the the years before. The grace and dignity of the man is beyond comparison. He used the last year and half of his life to tell people how much he loved them. He will be missed.

    My thoughts and prayers are with him family.

  139. Bob Negron July 13th, 2008 at 10:23 am

    My thoughts go out to Bobby’s family. I don’t know him personally but from when I was a young boy following Bobby Richardson I have always felt that the Yankee organization had some of the best role models in baseball. Bobby was one of them. His legacy will live much longer as a man than as a baseball player. May God bless his family through his loss and may their greif be eased by the love of close friends and family members. Bob

  140. stanzy July 13th, 2008 at 10:49 am

    Thank you, Bobby Murcer.

  141. RonH July 13th, 2008 at 10:58 am

    God be with Bobby, his family, and all who loved him. Rest in peace.

  142. Don Capone July 13th, 2008 at 11:45 am

    I drove past the Stadium this morning. The marquee said:

    Bobby
    1946-2008

    RIP Bobby. You were a true Yankee.

  143. Brooke July 13th, 2008 at 1:24 pm

    I met Bobby when him and the Yankees went to Seattle the August before he was diagnosed. My father and I were so lucky enough to get an autograph, talk to him for a bit and take a photo of the three of us. When I found out yesterday, I couldn’t believe my eyes. I didn’t know he has been this sick lately. When I met Bobby, he was someone that was genuine and so upbeat and inspired me to do better in my life. Bobby, thank you for meeting my father and I. I’ll never forget that. I can’t believe you’re gone. You’re probably playing baseball in Heaven with the Yankee greats.

    R.I.P. :(

  144. Joyce R July 13th, 2008 at 11:15 pm

    A true yankee. I will miss him. He was my favorite broadcaster on YES. I loved his wit and comments and was so enjoyable to hear him call a game. He was a wonderful humanitarian and gave from his heart. I loved the Old Timers Games just to see who would be his coach! I will be saddened not to see that this year. My deepest sympathies go out to Kay and the family. He was a great man and so very well liked. He was the embodiment of being a Yankee.

  145. Bethrocks July 13th, 2008 at 11:16 pm

    This is a letter I never sent to Bobby and wished I had:

    July 11, 2007

    Mr. Bobby Murcer
    4323 North West 63rd Street
    Suite 100
    Okalahoma City, OK 73116

    Dear Bobby:

    I watched the Old Timers game tonight and thought about you. First, you look terrific! Second, I don’t know exactly how you are feeling day to day, but you looked like you had a ton of energy. So sorry you lined out! I was hoping for an in-the-park homerun!

    When you mentioned that you so very much appreciated all the phone calls, e-mails, cards and letters when you were first diagnosed, I realized that perhaps now was a good opportunity to let you know that this die-hard Yankees fan was thinking of you.

    I saw you play in the ‘70’s with my parents. I remember my mom had a really big crush on you! My mom is long since gone, but I know that if she were still alive, she wouldn’t miss a moment of you broadcasting on YES. For myself, I am so very glad that you are able to find the time and energy to rejoin the YES team. I love all the little stuff you add when you are calling a game with your colleagues.

    I really wanted to tell you that I have never written a fan letter before, but I’d rather think of this as a “get well” letter. You have touched the spirit of so many fans and I just wanted to let you know, you have touched me as well. I wish you and your family the best as you continue to fight this battle.

    Thank you for taking the time to read this. Again, I only wish you the best and I look forward to the next time you call a game.

    I will miss you Mr. Yankee!

  146. Jamie Tompkins July 20th, 2008 at 5:22 pm

    Say it ain’t so….please!! I will miss you! You will remain forever in my heart.

It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

Alle 22 anche arrivata l’ufficialit : con un comunicato comparso sul sito della Salernitana che annunciava il ritorno del tecnico e l’addio a Sanderra. Da questo pomeriggio squadra e allenatore si ritroveranno a Corato, in provincia di Bari, a poca distanza da Benevento dove la Salernitana sar impegnata domenica prossima. E da qui riparte un’avventura che ha visto Perrone sempre vincente: due promozioni con i granata, prima dalla D alla Seconda Divisione e poi l’anno successivo in Prima Divisione. Ironia della sorte, il tecnico subentra ancora una volta sulla panchina della Salernitana. Oggi al posto di Sanderra, l’anno scorso per Galderisi.
