Facts, Trivia, Memories and More about Bobby Murcer


Traded: October 22, 1974: In one of the more heartbreaking trades in Yankee history, General Manager Gabe Paul traded long-time fan favorite Bobby to the San Francisco Giants in a straight-up, one-for-one swap for Bobby Bonds.  Bobby spent one year in pinstripes before being shipped to the California Angels in the deal that brought Ed Figueroa and Mickey Rivers to the Bronx.

Re-Acquired: June 26, 1979: Bobby was re-acquired from the Chicago Cubs in return for minor leaguer Paul Semall.


Notes: Paul from Wading River notes that Bobby wore #27 when first re-acquired from the Cubs, then switched with Darryl Jones.

Ken K. from Auburn, NY wrote: Between Thurman and Bobby they were my favorite players during the Yankees lean years. One of the saddest day was when Bobby got traded for Bobby Bonds. Bobby greatest game was August 6, 1979 when Bobby drove in all 5 runs against Baltimore on the day they buried Thurman.
Tom R. from High Bridge wrote: What a thrill for a 6 year-old kid to get a signed picture of his hero, Bobby Murcer.
C.M. from Stamford, CT wrote: Although I've been a Yankee fan for more than 50 years, my best memories of Bobby are after he retired. That was when we really got to see his personality. His time in the booth and on the field during all-star games was so endearing. A sweet wonderful man who happened to be great ballplayer as well.
