I'm about the same age as Murcer, and grew up a huge Yankee fan, Mickey was my Idol. By the time I got to see the Yankees live, Mickey had retired. Bobby Murcer was the up and coming next Yankee star. I followed his career and the accompanying era of Yankee baseball in the late 60's and into the 70's. Bobby was the guy, and although he didn't live up to Mickey's numbers(who could?) he became a legend because he played his heart out for the team and represented the hope of the future. This book relives that excitng time when a team is in transition. Bobby's class and dedication to the Yankees make him one of the all-time pinstripe legends, without the Hall of Fame numbers. You feel like part of his family and vice versa during this great story of a wonderful human being.

I've never seen anyone love being part of an organization as Bobby Murcer did, he truly loved being a Yankee. I TRULY LOVED THIS BOOK! He was brave, and an inspiration for anyone. God bless Bobby and the Murcer family.

Anyone who ever paid attention to Bobby Murcer as a player, broadcaster or person would assume any book he wrote would be filled with great baseball stories, fond memories, upbeat descriptions of others, humility and little controversy. That's exactly what you have here. Great book by a great Yankee For Life. Murcer will always be missed. Thankfully he gave us all some great memories and this wonderful book.

I'm a 16 year old yankee fan, so I never actually got to see when Bobby Murcer played in pinstripes, I only heard him on tv when I beagn watching games at the age of 4, until the time he stopped being a broadcaster. The man was a true yankee, whether on the field or in the broadcast booth. To read his book was a true joy and had me looking foward to each and every chapter, which sounds kind of out of place coming from a teen these days. Anyway, this book is a fantastic memoir of one of the best Yankees to ever put on pinstripes, and that is a fact.

Bobby Murcer was my favorite player growing up. He was on the Cubs and I remember many of his great moments 30 years later. Yankee for life is written for anyone who loves baseball and a story about life. Bobby tells his story in an honest and colorful way.
