By Larry King
Larry King notes in his USA Today column that former Atlanta Braves
baseball star, Dale Murphy, currently serving as president of the Boston
Massachussets Mission, may return to baseball when his mission ends next
spring. King says that Murphy wants to come back and says that he would
make a great pitching coach.
Murphy is also facing a second round of eligibility for baseball's Hall
of Fame. Murphy's name is one of many candidates held over from last
year, his first year of eligibility. To make the hall, he must be
selected by 75% of the 10-year members of the Baseball Writers'
Association of America. The writers will choose from the holdovers and
14 new candidates.
Ballots for the Hall of Fame were sent to the writers this week. The
announcement isn't expected until January.
Perez may have shot at Hall
