Yankees broadcaster Murcer recovering after brain surgery

Yankees broadcaster Murcer recovering after brain surgery

Former New York Yankees player Bobby Murcer was recovering at a Houston hospital Thursday after surgery to remove a brain tumor.
The 60-year-old Murcer, now a Yankees broadcaster, was awake and resting comfortably at The University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, hospital officials said in a statement.
The New York Daily News has reported that Murcer had been having headaches and feeling a loss of energy, and the tumor was discovered following an MRI on Christmas Eve.
Murcer played 17 seasons in Major League Baseball 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.
After his retirement, Murcer won three Emmy Awards for sports coverage as the voice of the Yankees.
