During the 1970s, Thurman Munson was one of the best catchers in Major League Baseball. He was named to seven All-Star teams, respected by his peers, and was the heart and soul of the Yankee championship teams of that era. When viewed through the prism of modern baseball analytics, Thurman Munson had an incredible decade of dominance from 1970 to 1979 that matches up with other catchers in the hall of fame. Thurman Munson belongs in the Baseball Hall of Fame. The time has come to correct this oversight.
Munson HOF has been formed to launch a campaign to have Munson inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2019- the 40th anniversary of his tragic death. We will be contacting former players, sportswriters, and broadcasters and baseball executives to support this effort.
You can help by signing the petition and contributing to the GoFundMe campaign.
