Heisman Trophy Winner Kyler Murray has Baseball in his Bloodlines

University of Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray captured the Heisman Trophy Award this year, after one of the best statistical seasons ever for a college quarterback. 

Murray was the first-round selection (9th overall) of the Oakland A’s in this year’s MLB Draft.  He had a productive season with the Sooners in 2018 as an outfielder, batting .296 with 10 home runs and 47 RBI.  He signed with the A’s for a $4.66 million bonus.

Murray is the nephew of former major leaguer Calvin Murray, who played in five major-league seasons with the Giants, Rangers, and Cubs.  Kyler’s father, Kevin Murray, played one season in the Brewers organization in 1982.

The big question is whether Murray will stick with his original baseball plans or pursue a career in the NFL, or both.
