Remembering Murcer

Today would have been Bobby Murcer’s 63rd birthday.


We lost Bobby last July to a brain tumor, so I’d like to take this opportunity to remember a pretty good ballplayer, and an even better person.

Here’s some Banter coverage regarding his passing.

Bruce Markusen had a nice piece on him.

. . . and some more coverage  (via YES).

We miss you Bobby!

My thanks to Alex for allowing me to post this . . . and “News of the Day” will be back tomorrow.

Welcome back Diane! It's great to see you here on a daily basis again...

I miss Bobby Murcer. Not only do I miss his long winded southern drawl, I miss the tremendous experience he brought not only to the field, but to the booth as well.

I also miss the days of him chasing baseballs bouncing around the monuments in CF, too.
