Yankees Hold Moment of Silence


Recommended Posts


It was a nice gesture. When we played the Yankees the day after Thurman Munson died in '79, we wore black armbands with the number 15 on them (Thurman's number). I still remember the game. It was a night game after the day had been gray, cloudy, and dismal, and we won by a score of 1-0 on a John Lowenstein home run that barely made it over the right-field wall at Yankee Stadium. Earl Weaver told the team that what happened was horrible, but life goes on, and we have a game to play.
