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!
