Thurman Munson was an American Major League Baseball player who played his entire 11-year career for the New York Yankees. He was the only Yankee to win both Rookie Of The Year and MVP awards. Considered the “heart and soul” of the Yankees, Munson was named the first team captain since Lou Gehrig. He led the Yankees to three consecutive World Series appearances from 1976 to 1978, and two consecutive World Series championships in 1977 and 1978. In 1979, Munson died at the young age of 32 in a plane crash.
