Calvin Murray (born July 30, 1971), is a retired professional baseball player who played outfield in the Major Leagues from 1999-2004 for the San Francisco Giants, Texas Rangers, and Chicago Cubs. He is a 1989 graduate of Dallas' W. T. White High School[1][2] and attended the University of Texas. His career was highlighted in 2001 when he was the batter facing Randy Johnson when Johnson hit a pigeon with a fastball in a spring training game.

He is the younger brother of Kevin Murray (quarterback) who was a star quarterback at Texas A&M University.

Calvin Murray is often associated with Oklahoma Runningback Demarco Murray, however the two are not related.

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ Ken Stephens. "Baseball's lack of blacks: faster sports, inner-city troubles steer them away from game," The Dallas Morning News, May 28, 1989, Sports Day section, page 1B: "Calvin Murray has every skill a major league scout could want in a baseball player -- able to hit, hit with power, run, throw and field. At the very least, Murray, a senior at Dallas' W.T. White High School, will attend the University of Texas next fall on a baseball scholarship. But Murray, ranked the nation's No. 7 prospect by Baseball America, likely will be a high pick in the major league draft June 5 and might opt to sign a professional contract."
