After undergoing extensive treatment (which ultimately deteriorated his immune system), he was pronounced dead on July 12th, 2008 from complications related to Brain Cancer at the age of 62.

    I loved Bobby when the yankees were in those losing yrs Bobby was thier best,his# 1 should be retired along with Billy Martin it was done with Berra & Dicky bobby was a very good player when the ball wasn’t so livly as it is today he hit 33 for the yankees in the dead ball era if he had stayed ayankee he would have easily hit 400-500 he also was a left handed hitting coach as well as a assistant manager,then when asked by George to retire because there was a rising star comming up that he needed a spot for Bobby agreed & the star in question was Don Mattingly,I seen anouncers getting placks even Robert Meril was given a # 1& half an others who get reconized & MURCER GETS NOTHING even @ the Allstar game wasn’t mentioned to long,if you left the room or had to use the men’s room you missed it,plus while being an announcer he would talk to struggling player letting them know they’ll get out of it I know I’ve been there,always encourged players in need & give positive re-enforcement it’s a shame Bobby hasn’t been reconized & given his due.I was @ a pool tournament looked up @ tv @ saw the Munson game I knew then NY lost Bobby.GOD BLESS YOU BOBBY.
