Ron Blomberg-The Captain & Me: On and Off the Field with Thurman Munson

Speaking of Writers

As back-to-back #1 draft picks for the New York Yankees, Ron Blomberg and Thurman Munson made for an odd couple. One was a good-looking, gregarious kid from Atlanta, who cheerfully talked anyone's ear off at the slightest provocation; the other was a dumpy, grumpy dude from the Midwest rust belt who was about as fond of making idle chit-chat as he was of shaving. Despite the surface differences, the two men would form a close attachment as they ignited a youth movement with the ‘70s Yankees. Now, more than 40 years after Munson's shocking death in a plane crash at age 32, Blomberg reflects and opens up about the beloved Yankees captain in an extraordinary memoir that reaches far beyond baseball – The Captain & Me: On and Off the Field with Thurman Munson. By turns hilarious and heartbreaking, Blomberg offers a fascinating, unvarnished glimpse of an incredibly tumultuous time in baseball history.  Above all, The Captain & Me is an illuminating remembrance of Munson as a player and as a person, filled with previously untold stories about his analytical-yet-hardnosed approach to baseball, as well as his kindness and generosity off the field. About the Authors: Ron Blomberg spent eight seasons in the majors with the New York Yankees and the Chicago White Sox, and was twice voted "Most Popular Person in New York" during his playing days with the Yankees. He earned a place in Cooperstown, thanks to becoming the first designated hitter to make a plate appearance in an official MLB game (he walked with the bases loaded), and he was inducted into the National Jewish Sports Hall of Fame in 2004 and was elected to the New York Baseball Hall of Fame in 2021. He is the author of Designated Hebrew: The Ron Blomberg Story. Dan Epstein is the author of the 1970s baseball histories Big Hair and Plastic Grass: Baseball and America in the Swinging '70s and Stars and Strikes: Baseball and America in the Bicentennial Summer of 1976. He writes about baseball, music and pop culture for a variety of outlets, including Rolling Stone, Revolver and the Jewish Daily Forward. He lives in Greensboro, North Carolina.--- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/steve-richards/support

Episode 48: Thurman Munson with Dan Epstein

Pod of Fame

Jim is joined by journalist and author of several books on baseball in the 1970s Dan Epstein, to breakdown the hall of fame candidacy of former New York Yankees catcher Thurman Munson. Jim and Dan first discuss Munson's grit and other intangibles (10:04).

Finally, they discuss how the 1970s was the golden age for catchers and how Munson ranks among the greats of the era (43:04), before revealing whether or not they believe Munson deserves a plaque in Cooperstown (60:34). After making a final verdict on Munson's candidacy, Dan briefly talks about his upcoming book, The Captain and Me: On and Off the Field with Thurman Munson, which launches on 4/20 (62:25).
