Aaron Effing Murphree
College baseball writers named Aaron Murphree the "Pro-Line Athletic National Hitter of the week." The dude is mashing like some sort of juiced up collegiate version of Mark McGwire. Of course the first baseman/outfielder is not juicing, but in five games last week, Murphree hit 8 home runs and drove in 15 while stealing 3 bases.
Murphree was also named SEC player of the week and Collegiate Baseball National Player of the Week. In 12 games this season (Arkansas is 11-1), Murphree has 12 home runs and 28 rbi's. His 12 dingers are halfway to the Arkansas record of 24 set by Ryan Lundquist in 1997.
Arkansas is currently ranked #19 and the Razorbacks are beginning a two-game series at top ranked Arizona State beginning tonight.
