Phillies: 3 things we will miss the most about Gregg Murphy

Meeting Gregg Murphy at the ballpark
Meeting Gregg Murphy at the ballpark is something that the few fans who had the opportunity to do so will miss. Anyone who had the chance to come across him at Citizens Bank Park would say that he is one of the nicest people they have met — even if it was just one time or twice.
Murph, running across the stadium to do his next on-air hit, would stop for a chat and a photo opportunity with any fan that came in his path if you just shouted “Murph!” Countless fans took to Twitter after the news of the network let go Gregg Murphy after the season to share moments where they were able to meet him and take a photo with him.
Often interviewing fans sitting in the Diamond Club or just in a random section at Citizens Bank Park, interacting with them and talking Phillies baseball, Murphy will sure be missed both on the field and off the field.
So many fans throughout the season would take to social media and interact with Murphy there as well. The field reporter loved the Philly fans and it’s quite obvious he did. It’s also obvious that he loved his job here, and for his position to be taken away from him and not only Phillies fans but baseball fans around the world is disappointing, to say the least.
Murph was well-liked around the organization, NBC Sports Philadelphia, and among the fans. Him interacting with the fans and caring about the fans was the “cherry on top.”
