In 1979, Thurman Munson crashed his jet short of a runway in Canton, Ohio. His two passengers escaped with minor injuries. Munson, however, did not survive. He had just turned 32 a few weeks earlier. Ever since then, Yankees fans have wondered what might have been. Would Thurman Munson be in the Hall of Fame today?
