Happy Birthday, Tony Muser

Tony MuserHappy Birthday to Tony Muser, who played for the Red Sox, White Sox, Orioles and Brewers during a nine-year MLB career. I saw him play for the first time in 1969, when he was a September call-up for the Red Sox. It was his first game at Yankee Stadium and he was batting in the top of the ninth. He hit a two-out RBI single off Jack Aker to tie the game. The Red Sox brought in Sparky Lyle to pitch — never a good thing for the other team – but The Count gave up a single to Bobby Murcer and the Yankees won the game on a walk-off RBI single by Thurman Munson. Tony was a good guy, and I was proud when he became the Royals manager.
