One of Major League Baseball's biggest stars from the 1980s has a friend who could soon be getting his mail delivered to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
Dale Murphy, a baseball legend for his time with the Atlanta Braves, is acquaintances with GOP presidential front-runner Mitt Romney. The retired outfielder tells Fox Sports South that he met Romney while his family was living in Boston for a few years during the late 1990s.
"He wasn’t involved in politics at that time, but we met him," Murphy said. "We lived in the same community there and got to know him and Ann and their kids. He came out to Utah for the Olympics in 2002 and then he ran for governor of Massachusetts. They’re good people and we were lucky to get to know them and be associated with them and now see them running for president. How often does someone you know -- not that we’re in touch with the Romneys – run for president? It's just really interesting, an interesting experience. That’s been fun."Full Story >>
