According to More Than Baseball, one of the organizations the Murphys contributed to, the $100,000 will ensure that every minor leaguer supporting a child or family member will now receive assistance.

Murphy joins Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainright and the Rangers Shin-Soo Choo as players who have recently provided financial assistance to minor league players.
