Phillies: 3 things we will miss the most about Gregg Murphy
By Matthew C
Gregg Murphy’s charity work
Off the field, Gregg Murphy was doing work for charity; and while he will still continue to do it even after being let go, it is something that we all loved him for.
Every year, Murphy holds a charity event, one of the many he hosts named The Ben to The Shore Bike Tour. This charity event includes a bike ride throughout the Jersey Shore in an effort to raise money for fallen first responders. It was announced earlier this month that due to the coronavirus pandemic, the charity event would be going virtual for the first time ever.
This proves that Murphy is committed to continuing to raise money for charity and he actually cares. This is a big reason why Phillies fans and sports fans around the world love him.
Aside from the bike charity event, Murphy holds an annual charity event down in Clearwater, Florida, while the Phillies participate in spring training. This event raises money for his team, “Team Murphy,” in the bike race.
Neither events were able to be held in-person this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
These are just two of the charity events that Murphy does whilst he participates in countless others all in the name to raise money for numerous charities across the Philadelphia region and the world.
While he will still continue to do this, it’s one of the countless reasons Phillies fans loved him. It proves that he is one hell of a good person, not just seen as a good broadcaster and reporter.
