|Message||VOTE THURMAN IN!!!!|
|Message||Thurman was an amazing player and such a role model in the world of sports. Its so different in todays world where players need to take urine tests to see if they are on steroids and being enhanced players. Thurman was a REAL PLAYER, A REAL SUPER star, a hero to me and to millions of other true baseball fans. I lost my hero that day and baseball has never been the same.|
|Message||I am rated in Oregon as the number one fan for the wall. There has been only one person that can be mabey, be more inspirational than Mr. Munson, and he also has not yet been inducted to the hall of baseballs most looked up upon. The leadership that Thurman Munson presented to his team, the league, and the fans that had been captured. In his qualities of performance, even with the pain, that this Gladiator in a catchers uniform could endevore to persevier. His heart and affection that so many people loved . The rigid footholds for the lessons we all got to learn from qualifies him to be inducted to the hall of fame.|
|Message||Thurman was and still is my favorite Yankee player.Everytime i go to Cooperstown i always look for some sort of picture or card to buy.Even though he only played ten years,he has better stats than most.Just take those ten years of some other players and you'll see that is true.He has better stats than Fisk did in ten years,better than Yogi's first ten and many others. They put in Clemente and i don't think his stats were any better.HE BELONGS IN BECAUSE HE TRULY WAS A GREAT CATCHER.Part of my email is a tribute to him. I feel a special connection to THE CAPTAIN. He was my hero.|
|Message||There was no player with a heart the size of Thurman's! He was the epitome of what an athelete should be! Not like the stars of today who are all about the $$$ and endoresments. He always played his heart out, didnt matter if he was hurt or not.|
Plain and simple, Thurman played because he loved the game!
Long live The Captain # 15!!!!!
|Message||I was 8 when he died.|
I cried in front of my TV set, he was my hero for sure at that time.
Hell of a clutch player, I was never a catcher by trade but something drew me to Thurman even when I was a little kid.
He was special.
Love you Thurm.
|Message||I was not much of a Yankee fan after The Mick retired, but I always respected Thurman Munson for his work ethic and attitude toward the game. I also respected the fact that he could perform so well while having to put up with the likes of Reggie Jackson and all the antics in the Yankee organization during this period. He was a "blue collar" player. We could sure use more of the likes of Munson in today's game.|
|Message||Thurman is was and always will be the greatest Yankee captain ever. Hall of Fame is next step.|
|Message||I don't know if the Hall's snub of The Captain is due to his surly off the field demeanor or a general anti Yankee sentiment, but his on field performance and statistics scream out for induction!|
