NEW YORK (WFAN) — Graig Nettles was one of the most important cogs in the Yankees’ dynasty of the late 1970s — a six-time All-Star and two-time Gold Glove winner who smashed 390 career home runs, including 250 in pinstripes.
Overshadowed perhaps by bigger stars like Reggie Jackson and Thurman Munson, Nettles’ offensive and defensive excellence helped the Yankees to World Series championships in 1977 and ’78.READ MORE: Doctors Seeing More Neck, Back Pain Related To Working From Home
