Yankee Stadium Legacy: #43 Bobby Murcer

Bobby Murcer reached the Major Leagues at the age of 19 in 1965 but took some time to get acclimated with the Yankees. Murcer finally broke out in the 1969 season with a 26 home run season in pinstripes and followed it up with 20 home runs in each of his next four seasons. In 1972 Murcer hit a career high 33 home runs and scored 102 runs that season. Also in 1972 Murcer made his second of five straight MLB All Star Game teams.

43 days until Yankees Opening Day.
