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] He was drafted by the Cleveland Indians in the first round of the 1989 Major League Baseball Draft, but did not sign, and instead attended the University of Texas.[2] His career was highlighted in 2001 when he was the batter facing Randy Johnson when Johnson hit a dove with a fastball in a spring training game.

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

  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: "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."
