Yankee great Bobby Murcer dies of brain cancer

According to the NY Post, former Yankee outfielder Bobby Murcer, 62, has died of cancer. He has reportedly been battling the disease for two years. The former pinstripe slugger-turned Yankee broadcaster was a staple of Yankee life for many of the Bronx faithful. He is sure to be missed by so many.

Murcer played during the 1970s, in what some have called the "Golden Age" of Major League Baseball. Known for his clutch hitting and great glove, Murcer is so much a part of the Yankee legacy. So rarely has someone so much in the public conducted themselves with such poise and class.
