I think it's possible Dale Murphy is the nicest guy in the world!

I haven't been graphing for long and I've only met a handful of people in and around professional baseball but Dale Murphy rivals Barry Larkin for the nicest guy in baseball (IMHO).

Shook hands with him at Cooperstown He belongs in the Hall of Fame!!

If you'd told me as a kid in the late 80s that Dale Murphy wouldn't make the Hall - and in fact, never even came close - I'd have said you were crazy. What a player.

Absolutely agree, not just based on my experience with him but for his contribution to MLB, he belongs in the HOF.

Great stuff Brian, I assume there is a backstory? No ice cream this time?? Glad you got to meet him, and I wholeheartedly agree with the rest of the contributors, he was a fantastic player, who deserves the HOF, especially compared to the caliber of players who went in for a while there. We are in some great years now, but Murphy was a fantastic player. Maybe like Don Mattingly, another great of the era, who will hopefully be recognized someday?

God Bless,

Kevin

No bribery required with Dale Murphy, he is extremely nice and stayed until everyone that wanted to meet him had done so. Truly a class act!

That is very nice, considering others from his era are not nearly so classy (see Strawberry, Darryl and McGee, Willie)

So glad you have had so much access to some great players! Very neat items you have signed, and also very cool photos as well! Have you been able to get a photo with Barry Larkin yet?

God Bless,

I'm not the artsy type, there was a day that I thought I was or could be, but it has passed. ;)

Haha, fair enough! You will meet him again, I am confident, and you can add one more 16x20 (I assume you already have Eric Davis with frozen yogurt cup) over your fireplace! I am sure your wife would be thrilled with that!!

God bless,

Kevin
