New York Yankees legend Thurman Munson is one of the most beloved figures in this storied franchise’s history. Munson served as the Yankees captain from 1976 until his death in a plane crash in 1979. This catcher was the first Yankees’ captain since Lou Gehrig in 1939. As the captain, he led the franchise to three consecutive American League Pennants and two World Series titles in 1978 and 1979.
Munson made an immediate impression in the big leagues winning the American League Rookie of the Year Award in 1970. This seven-time All-Star was also named the 1976 American League MVP hitting 17 home runs, driving in 105 RBIs, and posting a .305 batting average that season. In addition to those achievements he also won three Gold Glove Awards and was named the American League Player of the Week twice. Although this icon passed away many years ago he will never be forgotten by Yankees fans and was even honored by having his No. 15 jersey retired by the organization.
