Raymond Lee "Ray" Murray
Birth: Oct. 12, 1917
Death: Apr. 9, 2003

Professional Baseball Player. Known as 'The Deacon' Murray made his major league debut on April 25, 1948, as a catcher. He went onto play baseball with the Cleveland Indians in 1948, 1950 to 1951, Philadelphia Athletics in 1951, 1952 to 1953, and the Baltimore Orioles in 1954. Murray is best remembered for his antics during a 1954 game when he became annoyed with calls from baseball umpire Ed Hurley. He removed his mask and chest protector and laid them over home plate, got down on his knees and stretched out his arms and said, "Lord, help this SOB, I got two good eyes, give him one of mine." (bio by: K)
