Baseball’s Mr. Nice Guy, Dale Murphy, with Frank and me in front of Frank’s home. I told him once that someday I would be painting his Hall of Fame Art Post Card. He modestly replied that that was too far away in the future and that he didn’t know if he could go the distance. He certainly had a stellar career with a couple of MVP awards, led the league in home runs and RBIs a few times, was an all-star twice and won five straight Gold Glove Awards. I don’t know, however if the final numbers elevate him to Hall of Fame status. I hope I didn’t jinx him.
