As a result of Dale Murphy’s performance on and off the baseball field, winning back to back MVP awards in 1982 and 1983 I have been a fan of his since my early childhood.
The more I researched Dale for this book the more I was impressed with him and his efforts to make the world a better place. I was especially impressed with his humility and how he took some tough constructive feedback right after winning his first MVP award.
Dale’s efforts have continued long after his baseball career ended. Concerned with bad behavior in kids’ leagues and worried that many kids would follow some of the poor examples and take harmful performance enhancing drugs, Dale wrote a book about youth sports and founded the I Won’t Cheat foundation.
