Reddit: Dale Murphy AMA

My name is Dale Murphy. I played Major League Baseball for 17 years, spending the majority of that time with the Atlanta Braves. I was lucky enough to play with and against some of the all-time greats. I’m currently retired and living in Alpine, UT with the most incredible person I know, my wife Nancy. I’m also looking forward to being the First Base/Outfield Coach for Team USA in the World Baseball Classic next March. I’ll be answering questions from 2 p.m - 5 p.m. EST. AMA!

There are about 45 minutes left here if you want to try and get a question in - haven’t had a chance to read through yet myself.

I doubt he'll get as many questions as Overly Attached Girlfriend did.

Can't believe the BBTF hipsters don't want to opine on his music tastes:

Q: I know you have had a bit of a history with Wilco (via Twitter) and that you are a big music fan. Who are some of your favorite artists and what was your walk out song when you bat?

A: I'm a huge Wilco fan and have gotten to see them a few times live. Incredible! As for other artists/bands I'm listening to:
-The Civil Wars -The Avett Brothers -Markarians -The War on Drugs
Walk-out songs weren't really around when I was playing, but if I were playing today it would probably be "Daft Punk is Playing at my House" by LCD Soundsystem. Not sure why, but that song gets me pumped!

This is actually really awesome. Murphy's great.
