NLI: Matt Murphy

Matt Murphy: "This is something that I've always wanted. I've always wanted to keep playing baseball as long as I could. It's always been a goal of mine.

It's a small school. It's about forty-five minutes away so it's not too far from my family and everything. I think the coach said they have eighteen home games this year, so I'll try to get as many people up to watch our games as they game.

I'm going to need to get stronger. Just to keep my game sharpe and ready to compete with everyone else. I play short in high school but he said I might transition to second base just to see how I can transit my game in to college.

I'm going to miss all my teammates, my coaches, they've been with me the whole time. Not being able to play here at Joyce. I've always loved playing here."
