On Sunday at 3 p.m., Yankees historian Marty Appel will discuss the life and legacy of former Yankees great Thurman Munson at the Yogi Berra Museum & Learning Center, followed by a signing of his acclaimed biography Munson: The Life and Death of a Yankee Captain.
The event will coincide with the 30th anniversary of Munson’s tragic death at the age of 32, when the private plane he was piloting crashed in Canton, Ohio.
Munson is the intimate biography of a complex and larger-than-life legend, written by Appel, the former Yankees public relations director who worked closely with Munson and the Yankees of the 1970s.
Books are available for purchase at the Museum, which is located on the campus of Montclair State University in New Jersey. To RSVP for the discussion or reserve a personalized copy, please call (973) 655-2378.

Just a personal aside, I read Marty’s book a few weeks ago and it’s terrific. If you want to learn more about him and that era in team history, pick up a copy.
