Dale Murphy’s Hall of Fame candidacy is on its last legs, and as such, his kids are putting on a full court press to get their dad enshrined.
Is he deserving? Well, for about 4-6 years he was undoubtedly one of the best players in the game, but overall I don’t think his numbers quite get there. That said, if he gets elected, I won’t complain.
Murphy, however, was well-known for being more than just an All-Star centerfielder, and this lump-in-the-throat cartoon from his artist son proves it.
Here’s the full post from the young Murphy. Makes me kind of hope Dale gets in the Hall, whether he’s truly deserving or not.
