Muhlenberg's Tim Murray to Trade Uniform for Microphone

The Lehigh Valley IronPigs' (Philadelphia Phillies AAA affiliate) television and radio broadcast team, including studio hosts, for the 2009 season:


• Newcomer Tim Murray enters his first season with the IronPigs and will compliment returnee Tommy Viola and handle on-air and off-air responsibilities as a studio host during all IronPigs home games broadcast on the IronPigs Radio Network. Murray is completing his degree at Muhlenberg College, where he is a senior captain of the Mules' basketball team.

With one game left in the regular season, Muhlenberg (15-9, 11-6) is in third place in the CC, a game ahead of Gettysburg. If the Mules stay ahead of Gettysburg, they earn a bye to the semifinals of the CC playoffs. If the two teams tie, Muhlenberg will host a first-round playoff game next Wednesday.
