Creating a Persevering Mindset by Dale Murphy

Dale Murphy was drafted in the first round of the 1974 Major League Baseball draft by the Atlanta Braves. He went on to have a long and successful career, winning back-to-back National League MVP Awards (youngest player in history to achieve this feat at that time), as well as five Gold Gloves, four Silver Sluggers, and numerous other awards and honors through the years.

He was a seven-time All-Star and still today is known as one of the most beloved athletes to ever play in Atlanta. Off the field, he is known for his integrity and his determination to play the game the right way. He was inducted into the Braves Hall of Fame in 2000. His number (3) was retired in 1994 and hangs today in SunTrust Park as a tribute to his celebrated career.
