Bobby Murcer Recovering from Brain Surgery

Bobby Murcer, the Yankees' broadcaster and former All-Star outfielder, underwent surgery to remove a brain tumor in Houston on Thursday afternoon.
A statement released by The University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center said that Murcer was "awake and resting comfortably" following the operation.

"The Murcer family would like to thank all those who have extended their well wishes and support," the statement said.

The New York Daily News reported Thursday morning that Murcer, 60, had been suffering headaches and a loss of energy in recent days. An MRI on Christmas Eve revealed the tumor.

"I'm feeling OK and we're just going to have to see what this surgery will bring," Murcer told the newspaper 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 a five-time All-Star during his 17 big-league seasons, with four of those All-Star appearances coming as a member of the Yankees.

For most of the last 23 years, Murcer has worked as a Yankees broadcaster. Murcer was in the radio booth as color analyst from 1983-85, and has been on TV as a color commentator since 1987. He served as the team's assistant general manager in 1986.

    I have, and always will be, a true Yankees fan. Don't give me that bandwagon crap; bandwagon fans are for people who need to belong.
