Daniel Murphy challenges soccer player to dizzy baseball challenge (Big League Stew)

We know what it looks like when Daniel Murphy is swinging a hot bat. We saw it the entire 2015 postseason as he played a huge part in getting the New York Mets to the World Series. After signing a free-agent contrac t with the Washington Nationals, Murphy took a trip to London and found some time in between all the sightseeing to face off in a baseball challenge against Eric Dier, a defender for English Premier League club Tottenham Hotspur. To even the stakes a little, Murphy and Dier spun around in a circle a few times, then tossed themselves a ball to hit as far as humanly possible.  What unfolded at Tottenham’s training facility was not exactly graceful.  [ 2016 Yahoo Fantasy Baseball is open for business. Sign up now ] Murphy and Dier had three attempts each to show of their best power swing. Supposed to be the expert among the two, Murphy couldn’t hang on to the bat on his second attempt and failed to hit the ball in-bounds on his third attempt. In the end though, Murphy did do enough to earn a slight victory over Dier, but it was far from impressive. The pitchers Murphy crushed in the playoffs sure wish he’d had to adhere to the rules of dizzy baseball back in October, too. Actually, considering the hot streak he was on, it might not even have mattered.
