Mormon Baseball Great Joins Olympic Volunteers

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH -- Former Atlanta Braves baseball star Dale Murphy was among the volunteers helping out at the 2002 Salt Lake City Winter Olympic Games, working the green room at the medal plaza collecting mementos from the Olympians to be auctioned for charity. The Atlanta Journal and Constitution claims that Murphy is the second-most famous Olympic volunteer, behind future NFL Hall of Famer Steve Young. Murphy was a two-time National League MVP who hit 398 home runs for the Braves. Since retiring from baseball in 1993, Murphy, 46, has served as an LDS mission president in Boston, and now admits he is trying to figure out what to do with his life. But he's approaching that with good humor, "I'd like to be a Winter Olympian," he quips. "But I don't know if I can fit on a luge."
