The Complete Thurman Munson Hall-of-Fame Package – PUT HIM IN!

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.

Scattering the Ashes.jpeg

"Scattering The Ashes has all the feels. Paul Russell Semendinger's debut novel taps into every emotion. You'll laugh. You'll cry. You'll reexamine those relationships that give your life meaning." — Don Burke, writer at The New York Post

The Least Among Them.png

"This charming and meticulously researched book will remind you of baseball’s power to change and enrich lives far beyond the diamond."

—Jonathan Eig, New York Times best-selling author of Luckiest Man, Opening Day, and Ali: A Life

From Compton to the Bronx.jpg

"A young man from Compton rises to the highest levels of baseball greatness.

Considered one of the classiest baseball players ever, this is Roy White's story, but it's also the story of a unique period in baseball history when the Yankees fell from grace and regained glory and the country dealt with societal changes in many ways."
