Biography

American middle relief pitcher in Major League Baseball (MLB) who played for the Boston Braves (1950), Boston Red Sox (1957–1959) and Washington Senators (1959). Listed at 6 feet 3 inches (1.91 m), 185 pounds (84 kg), Wall batted and threw right-handed. He was signed by the Braves in 1950 as a free agent out of the University of Texas at Austin.

In a four-season career, Murray posted a 13-14 record with a 4.20 ERA and 14 saves in 91 appearances (one start), including 82 strikeouts, 63 walks, and 193.0 innings pitched. In his last MLB season, 1959, Wall was traded by Boston to the Washington Senators on 11 June in a four-player deal that included Senator pitcher Dick Hyde. He appeared in one game for Washington before being returned to the Red Sox on 14 June when Hyde's sore arm voided the Wall-for-Hyde portion of the transaction.

Murray committed suicide by gunshot in Lone Oak, Texas on 8 October 1971 at the age of 45.
