DANIEL MURPHY TALKS ABOUT HIS CHRISTIAN FAITH
Episode 82 brings us Daniel Murphy to talk about his Christian faith.
Daniel Murphy is a native of Jacksonville, Florida. The Mets selected Murphy in the 13th round (394th overall) of the 2006 Major League Baseball Draft. Also, he spent the entire 2007 season with the High-A St. Lucie Mets of the Florida State League.
Murphy began the season with the Double-A Binghamton Mets. A day after being promoted to the Triple-A , the Mets Marlon Anderson was placed on the disabled list; so Murphy was called up to the majors.
In his first major league at bat, Murphy hit a single. In the same game, he made a difficult catch against the left field wall.
According to MLB rules, players are no longer considered a rookie because they have more than 130 at-bats in a single season. Murphy had 131 at-bats for the Mets during the 2008 season, thus making 2008 his rookie season by a single at-bat. He finished the season batting .313, with 2 home runs and 17 RBI.
Although he is a natural third baseman, Murphy began to play left field in 2008. Murphy led the Mets in home runs, with 12. It is tied for the fewest home runs to lead a Mets team in a single season in franchise history
On March 30, 2010 Murphy hurt his knee in a spring training game. While playing second base for the Buffalo Bisons, he suffered a “high-grade” MCL tear while trying to turn a double play, so he was expected to miss 4–6 months.
