Washington Nationals All-Star Daniel Murphy shares his story of faith and sports

Daniel Murphy plays second base for the Washington Nationals.

He was selected in the 13th round of the 2006 MLB Amateur Draft by the New York Mets. He made his debut in 2008, and in 2015 helped lead the Mets to the World Series, hitting six postseason home runs and being named NLCS MVP.

In December 2015, Murphy signed a three-year, $37.5 million deal with the Washington Nationals and did not disappoint in his first two seasons. In 2016, he had a career season hitting .347 with 25 home runs and 104 RBI. In 2017, he followed that up with another stellar season, hitting .322 with 23 home runs and 93 RBI.

The three-time All-Star is also a follower of Jesus Christ and along with his wife, Tori, shared his Christian testimony with The Increase.

This is his story.
