Yankee Great Bobby Richardson Sign Memoir “Impact Player” Tomorrow, 9/19, At Yogi Berra Museum

Bobby Richardson, the spiritual leader and Gold Glove second baseman on the great Yankee teams of the late 1950s to early ‘60s, will sign his new memoir, Impact Player, at the Yogi Berra Museum & Learning Center tomorrow, Wed. Sept. 19 at 3 p.m.

A cornerstone of one of baseball’s greatest infields, Richardson played for the Yankees from 1955-66, and has long been admired for his ability and his ethics.
Richardson’s excellence first became nationally apparent In the 1960 World Series, when he had 11 hits and drove in 12 runs, becoming the only player to be named Series MVP from a losing team. In 1962 he led the American League with 209 hits, and won the Gold Glove as the best defensive second baseman from 1961-65. Richardson retired from the game prematurely at age 31.

A devoutly religious Christian, Richardson delivered the eulogy at Mickey Mantle’s funeral. Current Yankees manager Joe Girardi wrote the foreword to Impact Player.
To RSVP or pre-order a signed copy, call (973) 655-2378. Richardson will only be signing books purchased at the Museum.
