Last Summer, Gregg Murphy was waiting for COVID-19 test results when he was informed by NBC Sports Philadelphia that his job was being eliminated.
That’s a rough way to go out, after 20 years with the network.
At the time, the Phillies field reporter said he was disappointed, but grateful for that decades-long experience, and now he’s returning with a podcast titled “Glove Stories” –
#OpeningDay & you don’t have to miss @GMurphInc this season! I’m so happy to be working w/ Murph on @glovestoriespod —Mike Schmidt, @CMBaseball41 & @matt_breen join this week.
