Bobby Murcer

Bobby Murcer

“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.” – Joe Girardi, after Murcer passed away in 2008
