Callum Murphy – Canadian SS/3B with British passport seeking EU club for 2018

Callum Murphy is a Canadian shortstop who is currently playing for the Port Adelaide Magpies in South Australia for the 2017-2018 winter (see current stats). He is a graduate of Wilfrid Laurier University (Canada) and spent his college summers taking advantage of his dual citizenship with Great Britain to play for the British National Team. Most recently Callum represent Great Britain in 2016 at the EU championships in Holland where he started all 7 games and finished the tournament with a .304 batting average.

Since graduating in 2016, Callum has played for the Hamilton Cardinals in the highly competitive semi-professional Intercounty Baseball League based in Ontario, Canada.

Callum is most comfortable at shortstop but can also play second base and third base at a high level. He can also come in and eat up some innings on the bump if needed but does not consider himself a pitcher. He is currently throwing some bullpens in Australia in anticipation of pitching in the summer. At the plate he is a contact hitter with gap power and hits the occasional homerun.

Any club seeking a strong defensive shortstop who also brings a solid bat to the lineup along with an EU passport is encouraged to reach out to Callum with any expressions of interest.
