Thirty-five years ago today, Yankees captain Thurman Munson was killed when a small plane he was piloting crashed during take-off and landing exercises near his home in Ohio during a team off-day. That was a few years before I was born so I can’t even pretend to know what that whole experience was like as a fan. I do understand what Munson meant to the franchise and who he was as a player though. I can’t imagine what that day was like 35 years ago.
