Thurman Munson played in 28 games for the Syracuse Chiefs in 1969. He batted .363 in 102 at-bats before his call up to the New York Yankees. Who could blame the Yankees for calling him up after a such a short stint in Syracuse? Munson played in 26 games for the Yankees in 69, then went on to having a career studded with the Rookie of the Year Award, Gold Glove Awards (3), All-Star Game appearances (7), and a Most Valuable Player Award (1976) before his untimely death in the middle of the 1979 season. He was elected to the Syracuse Wall of Fame in 2005.
