|Message||Thurman Munson was the first Catcher in the history of baseball to have 4 consecutive seasons of at least 180 hits (1975 - 1978). That is an astounding statistic for a Catcher and shows what kind of player he was... He played everyday and gave everything he had to turn that team into World Champions. Another of my favorite statistics for Thurman is that he had 45 postseason hits in 30 postseason games. Incidentally Johnny Bench also had 45 postseason hits, but he did it in 45 games. Thurman was clutch, always rose to the occasion to give his team exactly what it needed. The Hall of Fame without Thurman Munson is a dis-service to the Hall of Fame. What more could Thurman have given to baseball between August 8, 1969 and August 2, 1979?|

He was clutch at the plate and every ball he hit was a line drive. These are the things I remember about him. I hope some day he is put into the hall of fame. I will definitely attend.|

|Message||Thank you for creating this site, let's hope we can all get the veteran's committee to seriously consider Thurman Munson for the Baseball Hall of Fame. He belongs there.|
|Message||Munson had almost 10 years in the big leagues|
During those years, he was one of the greatest catchers to have played the game.
He belongs in the Hall.....without a doubt.
