  • [07/13/08] - Beloved Yankee Broadcaster, Ex-Outfielder Bobby Murcer Dies At 62



    NEW YORK -- News 4 New York has learned that former Yankees outfielder Bobby Murcer has died after a battle with brain cancer.

    He was 62.

    Murcer was a part of the Yankee family for more than 40 years since his debut with the team in 1965.

    The Yankees said he died at home in Oklahoma City following a 19-month battle with brain cancer.

    Murcer played 17 seasons in the majors with the Yankees, San Francisco Giants and Chicago Cubs from 1965 to 1983. He batted .277 with 252 home runs and worked as a Yankees broadcaster for 23 seasons.

    He had surgery in December 2006, four days after being diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor.

    He returned to the broadcast booth last season and briefly this year.

    Murcer played for the Yankees from 1965-74 and 1979-83 and became a broadcaster with the team after retiring in 1983.

    A five-time major league All Star and Gold Glove winner in 1972, Murcer was a fan favorite in New York.

    The lefty batter, who had seven 20-home run seasons, was signed by the Yankees as an amateur free agent in 1964. On June 24, 1970, he smashed four home runs in a doubleheader at Yankee Stadium.

    Murcer was born on May 20, 1946, in Oklahoma City, Okla.
