MURPHY was probably one
of the nicest men in baseball. Hopefully Murphy will be elected
into the Major League Baseball Hall of Fame on the first ballot, but if
not Dale will certainly be inducted soon thereafter. The Murph won two
National League MVP's back-to-back in 1982 and 1983. Murphy ended his career
only two home-runs short of 400, which places him 24th on the all-time
home run list. In the 80's Dale ranked second in homers and RBI's. Murphy
tied a major league record on July 27, 1989 by hitting 2 home-runs and
knocking in 6 RBI's in ONE inning! Murphy began to decline in 1988 which
is the same year he had his infamous mole removed from his right cheek.
Maybe the mole was lucky!?!? Murphy cranked out at least 20 homers and
77 RBI's each season during the 80's except the strike shortened season
of 1981. Murphy was traded from the Braves to the Phillies and later to
the Rockies, but when the "Murph" is enshrined in Cooperstown he
will once again be an Atlanta Brave for the rest of time.
Nolan Ryan - " I can't imagine Joe Dimaggio was a better all around player than Dale Murphy."
The Dale Murphy Induction Society - help Murph get into the Hall of Fame and maybe get an autograph.
