Eddie Murray grew up in a family of twelve children in his hometown, and spent his childhood playing baseball with his siblings in Little League in Watts; one of his brothers is Rich Murray, also known as a professional baseball player. He attended Locke High School, where he continued to play baseball, and in that period his teammate was Ozzie Smith, a future famous baseball player. In his senior year, Eddie hit for .500 and distinguished himself as a player.

He played for the Baltimore Orioles in the minor amateur league for a couple of years, until 1977, when he signed a contract with the team and made his debut in the major league. During his first season, Eddie appeared in 160 games, batting .283 with 173 hits, 88 RBIs, and 27 home runs, which earned him the American League Rookie of the Year award, and marked the beginning of an increase of his net worth. In the following season, he was named to the All-Star Game for the first time, and finished 8th in the MVP balloting.

Eddie continued with impressive results and won many awards. In 1981 and 1982, he was named to the Major League Baseball All-Star Game, and gained his first Gold Glove Award in 1982, given annually to the best baseball player, which potentially added a considerable amount to his net worth, as he passed the season with hitting for .316 and having 174 hits, 110 RBIs and 32 home runs in 151 games. In the next season, his scores were also high as previously, and he received not only another one Gold Glove Award, but also his first Silver Slugger Award, and during the same season, the team participated in the American League Championship Series. In the next years, he continued to win all these awards, and in 1984 Eddie appeared in all 162 games, having a .306 batting average.

He played for the team until the end of 1988, when he was traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers for three players – Brian Holton, Juan Bell, and Ken Howell and some amount of money, but spent only two seasons there, winning the Silver Slugger Award, after which he transferred to the New York Mets, playing there just a season before signing a contract as a free agent with the Cleveland Indians in 1993, increasing his net worth by a large margin. During that year, he appeared in 108 games and batted .254, having 110 hits, 76 RBIs and 17 home runs, while in the following year, he had a .323 batting average with 141 hits, 82 RBIs and 21 home runs in 113 games. In 1995, they participated in the American League Division Series and American League Championship Series, when they defeated the Seattle Mariners and went to the 1995 World Series, but lost to the Atlanta Braves.

To speak further about his professional career, Eddie spent one half of the 1996 season with the Cleveland Indians and the other half with the Baltimore Orioles, as he was traded for Kent Mercker. However, in the next season, he became a player at the Anaheim Angels, which contributed a lot to his net worth, and then Eddie retired as a part of the Los Angeles Dodgers. He finished his professional career with a .287 batting average, 3,255 hits, 1,917 RBI, and 504 home runs. He was also just the third player to score 500 home runs, and 3,000 hits – Hank Aaron and Willie Mays being the other two, quite illustrious company.

After retirement, Eddie continued his career as a hitting coach with the Cleveland Indians from 2002 until 2005, when he got a job at the Los Angeles Dodgers, and although he was fired in 2007, this also increased further his wealth.

Thanks to his accomplishments in the sports industry, Eddie was inducted in the Hall of Fame in 2003.

Regarding his personal life, Eddie Murray has been married to Janice since 1993; the couple has two children together. In his spare time, he collaborates with a number of charitable organizations, and he established the Carrie Murray Nature Center in Baltimore, which contains bird rehabilitation center and insects zoo.

#Quote
1If I can help you, it helps us. It's about winning. If you can tell somebody something and it can help the team, that's what you do.
2[after getting glasses in 1986] "I found out there are a lot of ugly people out there."
#Fact
1Led the Major Leagues in Batting Average with a .330 mark for the Los Angeles Dodgers in 1990 without winning the National League batting championship. Willie McGee was batting .335 for the St. Louis Cardinals at the time of his trade to the American League's Oakland A's. He hit .274 for the A's for the rest of the season and saw his overall batting average dip to. 324. Since McGee switched leagues and had enough at bats to qualify for the title at the time of the trade, his NL average remained frozen at .335. Therefore, Willie McGee is still considered to be the 1990 National League batting champion.
