Murphy Signs for 2015/16
10/13/2015 7:52 PM ET

The Canberra 'Elite' Cavalry have agreed to terms with cult-hero and future Cavalry legend Jack Murphy. Murphy will return to Canberra for the entirety of the 2015/16 ABL Season.

Murphy has been a cornerstone in the Cavalry team for the past three years and will add another dimension to an already powerful batting lineup.

As an added boost for the team, the adopted Canberran will return to the Cavalry as an 'Australian' under the new import rules.

Cavalry Manager Michael Collins believes the fact he is coming back as an Aussie adds 'even more value' to the team'.

"It should be a great thing for the team, he has experienced an ABL championship and an Asia Series Championship, he knows what the team's about and knows how to bring another Championship back to Canberra," Collins said.

According to Collins the now 27-year-old catcher will add both experience and versatility to the team.

"It's tough to say exactly where he will fit in but he is a guy that always wants to play and we will be looking to use him in as many positions as we possibly can," Collins said.

"We will obviously be looking to get his bat in the lineup as often as possible."

The fan-favorite enjoyed an extremely successful season with the Cavalry in 2014/15 batting at .353 and picking up the Most Valuable Player award.

Murphy has spent the majority of the American baseball season playing at AA-level in the Toronto Blue Jays system and has recently been traded to the LA Dodgers.

Murphy will play his first game for the Cavalry this season on the 23rd of October at the Narrabundah Ballpark. Get your tickets now here!
