Bobby Murcer Has Brain Cancer
This sad word came down late last night. After complaining of headaches and a lack of energy, a CAT scan revealed a brain tumor. He will undergo brain surgery today. I'm sure all of RSN wishes him the best.
Here is what he had to say late yesterday......
"I'm feeling OK and we're just going to have to see what this surgery will bring,'' Murcer told the Daily News by phone Wednesday night. "I'm hopeful that everything will turn out OK and I'm thankful to have so many friends who are rooting for me.''
Murcer was to be treated at the MD Anderson Hospital in Houston, one of the top cancer facilities in the nation, the newspaper said.
Murcer played 17 seasons in the major leagues from 1965-83 and was a five-time All-Star and a Gold Glove-winning outfielder. In his career with the Yankees, San Francisco Giants and Chicago Cubs, he batted .277 with 252 home runs and 1,043 RBIs."
Though he was the enemy on the field, in between the lines, in real life he's just like you and me. Human. Good luck Bobby!
