... I remember it like it was yesterday.
25 years ago today, All-Star catcher (and Yankees team captain) Thurman Munson was killed in the crash of his private plane. He was practicing "touch and go" maneuvers in his hometown of Canton, OH when his plane crashed. Munson had taken up flying so that he could commute between his home and the Bronx and have more time with his family during the baseball season.
