Former Mets All-Star Daniel Murphy joins the Long Island Ducks
Three-time All Star and Mets playoff hero Daniel Murphy will join the Long Island Ducks in the Atlantic League this season.
“This game is part of my soul, and my passion for playing grew as great as ever when I discovered certain things that I believe will enable me to be productive on the field again,” Murphy said in a team statement. “I am immensely grateful to Mr. Boulton, Wally Backman and Michael Pfaff for allowing me to live my dream for a second time.”
Murphy played seven of his 12 MLB seasons with the Mets. The slugger smashed 138 home runs over 1,452 games.
Murphy noted that playing with the Ducks means getting in front of New York fans again.
“Competing before the New York fans is an enormous privilege, and I hope that my effort and performance reflect how honored I am to do so,” Murphy said in a team statement. “The sincerest thanks from my family and I to the Long Island Ducks for this chance at a new adventure.”
