Former Yankee Ron Blomberg is making a big push on Twitter to rekindle the Thurman Munson for the Hall-of-Fame campaign.

With this in mind, and with the facts being that we have attracted tens of thousands of new readers since these originally posted, I determined that it was time to share the posts I wrote and/or organized outlining the reasons that Thurman Munson deserves this honor.

This post is collection of many other posts that were all posted on this site.

Note – These articles first appeared on the blog in November 2019.


A few weeks ago, I took an in-depth look at Thurman Munson’s career and sought to determine if he was worthy of the Hall-of-Fame.

He, absolutely, deserves this honor. 100%. Absolutely.

Following my post, the Munson for HOF Committee shared a plethora of research with me that we posted here at Start Spreading the News.

Since these articles have been scattered over a few weeks, we gathered them all here in one spot for easy access.

These, plus the articles linked below, provide an extremely compelling case that Thurman Munson belongs in baseball’s Hall-of-Fame.

It’s time for Thurman Munson to be in the Hall-of-Fame!
