DALE 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.

Chuck Tanner - " I've never known anyone like him, God only makes one like Dale every 50 years."

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.
