Career highlights and awards

Daniel Francis Murphy (August 11, 1876 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania – November 22, 1955 in Jersey City, New Jersey) was a second baseman in Major League Baseball from 1900 to 1915. He managed the Jersey City Skeeters in 1919.

He spent most of his career with the Philadelphia Athletics and moved from second base to outfielder in 1910 to make room for the Athletics' new second baseman Eddie Collins.[1] In the Athretics 1913 World Championship season, Murphy's playing time was limited by a broken knee cap, but he served as the team's acting captain.[1]
