"Murph" has been a fixture with the Giants since the team moved west in 1958. In recognition of his lifelong commitment to the organization, the Giants clubhouse at AT&T Park is named the Mike Murphy Clubhouse. In his 50 years, Murphy has never missed a Giants home game. The San Francisco native is in his 50th season with the Giants and 28th as equipment manager. Murphy began his career in professional baseball as bat boy for the San Francisco Seals (AAA) from 1954-57, before becoming the Giants' bat boy during the 1958-59 seasons. He became visiting clubhouse attendant in 1960 when the club moved to Candlestick, a job he held until his promotion in 1980. Murphy and his wife, Carole, live in San Bruno with their children, Andrea and Michele; grandaughter, Tori-Lynn; and Bows, the clubhouse dog.
