AHRC NYC Foundation honors late New York Yankees Catcher

By DJ SIXSMITH
College Contributor Network

On August 2, 1979, New York Yankees catcher Thurman Munson tragically died in a plane accident. The two-time World Series champion and seven-time All Star was just 32 years old. 35 years later, Munson still remains a beloved figure in the New York sports landscape.

On Tuesday night, the AHRC NYC Foundation paid homage to the late Yankee captain with the 35th annual Thurman Munson Award at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in Manhattan. This year's honorees included World Series champions Bernie Williams and Mookie Wilson, Super Bowl champion Steve Weatherford, Yankees relief pitcher Dellin Betances, and Olympic gold medal winners Meryl Davis and Charlie White. The award honors athletes who go above and beyond in their community service and raises money for children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities in the New York area.

Here's what this year's honorees had to say about receiving the honor.
