Former Rangers outfielder David Murphy, who retired earlier this year after 10 major league seasons, will be honored before a game June 24 at Globe Life Park.
Murphy played seven seasons with the Rangers beginning in 2007. He hit .291 with 65 RBI in in 138 games in 2010 when the Rangers won their first American League pennant. In 2012, he had his best season, batting .304 with 61 RBI and 65 runs scored and a career-high 139 hits and 29 doubles.
The Rangers will pay tribute to David Murphy, who spent seven seasons with the club, before a game at Globe Life Park June 24.
“I’m always going to miss the game and I’ll always love it, but it doesn’t compare to my family,” Murphy told the Star-Telegram in April when he announced his retirement.
Murphy, 34, was a first-round selection (No. 17 overall) in the 2003 draft by the Red Sox out of Baylor. He attended Klein High School, north of Houston.
Murphy batted .275 with 85 homers and 362 RBI with the Rangers.
