Bobby Murcer's cancer is malignant

I just heard on Mike and the Mad Dog that Murcer's brain tumor is malignant. All my prayers go out to him and his family. He's a true Yankee and we'll all be fighting with him in his time of need. He was my hero when I played in the Catholic leagues in NY from 1968-72. I wore # 1 and played short stop for St. Francis of Assis in Astoria Queens, as a little leager. I even won a gold glove and dedicated to Bobby. Remember, he came up as Mantle was retiring and was thought to be the next big time centerfielder.
