  2. 37 Pennants

    In the "win all" culture of today's society, I have come to feel that the pennants The Yankees won, but did not lead to Series victories get more and more overlooked. Being the "League Champion" is still quite an accomplishment. It is not like the other sports. People do remember who lost the series. Ask the '51 Giants, '67 Red Sox, the Boys of Summer, and even The Yankees of the '20's. Thier WS record was 3 - 3. yet they laid the foundation for the Dynasty. True to validate a great...

  11. Historical interlude for Monday 8/13

    Thurman Munson... Like many other great Yankees of the past, he was consistent. A lifetime .292 hitter, he hit .300 and drove in 100 runs from '75 to '77. The last player to do that was Frank White. In the '76 World Series he batted .529 and in the '77 & '78 WS he hit .320. He was a lifetime .379 hitter in WS play... Munson hit safely in his last six official at bats in the '76 WS to tie the record set by Goose Goslin of the '24 Senators. In his first AB in the '77 WS he hit safely...
