Day 3. Kyle Murphy. Junior INF, Manhattan College
Murphy will be back in Torrington this summer for a second stint with the Torrington Titans of the Futures Collegiate Baseball League.
In 2011, Murphy batted .205 with 18 RBI’s for a Titans team that posted a 27-17 record and went to the FCBL Championship Series in the leagues first go around.
Murphy got hot down the stretch in ’11, knocking in six runs in his last seven games while playing well at third.
This spring, Murphy is helping Manhattan College as they attempt to win the MAAC Championship for a second consecutive season.
The former Holy Cross Crusader is batting .247 with two home runs and 24 RBI’s for the Jaspers.
His 13 double are second on the team and he is looking forward to another year in a much larger FCBL.
“To go from four teams to nine is terrific.” Murphy said. “It means the league is really looking to go places and I wanted to be part of it again.”
Murphy and former Cross teammate Ryan Plourde play in the same conference and have been playing ball together since they were 11 years old.
“Coming back to play with Ryan is always great.” Murphy said. “We see each other often when we play Fairfield University.”
Murphy, Plourde, Rich Graef and pitcher Jordan Sheiner will all be coming back to Fuessenich Park this summer.
The 2012 Titans kick off the season on Thursday, June 7 when they face off against the Wachusetts Dirt Dawgs at Fuessenich Park.
