Haiku for Today (Bobby Murcer)
Bobby Murcer was
followed Mantle as the star,
but was just himself
Born May 20, 1946 in Oklahoma City, OK
Died July 12, 2008
He had the unfortunate job of following Mickey Mantle as the star of the Yankees (who followed Dimaggio, Gehrig and Ruth).
He had a great career and was (by all accounts) a great person. Just being himself.
