Reggie has a special talent with his venom. He couldn’t just go after Bert Blyleven and Phil Niekro. He had to attack The Kid, just as he had to attack Thurman Munson back in the day.
The New York Yankees have announced that nearly 50 former Yankees will attend the 66th annual Old Timers’ Day at Yankee Stadium on Sunday, July 1st.
On August 2nd, 1979 Jorge Posada was two weeks shy of his 8th birthday and I’m guessing had not a clue who Thurman Munson was. But today, exactly 32 years since the tragic death of the Yankee Captain, Posada shares a bond with Munson.
Is the success of the Yankees inevitably linked to A-Rod’s production?
I still remember how the squatty catcher, who wore Number 15, would waddle while coming up to the plate… the nervous twitches… the walrus-like moustache… the re-adjusting of the batting gloves… and the feeling that I had… just knowing that Thurman Munson would get a clutch hit.
Less than two weeks until pitchers and catchers, and the rest of the players aren’t too far behind. While Derek Jeter, Alex Rodriguez, and Jorge Posada will continue to be the centers of attention, Nick Swisher brings his swagger back for a third year in pinstripes.
