Biographical Information[edit]

Outfielder Red Murray was one of John McGraw's players on the New York Giants for years, appearing in the 1911-13 World Series. However, he was at least as good a hitter in his years with the St. Louis Cardinals before he came to the Giants.

He led the National League in home runs and was second in RBI in 1909. He was second in the league in stolen bases each year from 1908 to 1910 and led NL outfielders in assists in both 1909 and 1910.

He had played baseball, basketball and football at Lock Haven College. After baseball, he served as a Democratic alderman in Elmira, NY for three years and was the town's recreation director for 18 years.
