Murray is a former baseball star, who signed with the Milwaukee Brewers out of high school. He played within the team's system for five years. His brother Aaron, 23, was also just drafted this year by the Kansas City Chiefs in the fifth round. Talk about coming from good stock.

He consistently posts pictures on Instagram of his puppy Sabel, a mix of some sort and quite a cutie.
"After 30 minutes of playing out back with my baby girl, we had a stand off for the final minute of action #MansBestFriend," he wrote just two weeks ago.
There's also a slew on Instagram pics where Murray is snuggling up to his furry friend.

Today on Instagram, he posted: "Meet my beautiful fiancé and the love of my life @andi_dorfman ... I've waited 29 years to find her and it's been well worth the wait! God is soooooo great! #VeryBlessed #ForeverKindOfLove."
He also told "GMA" that the first time he met his love, "I was so nervous. I knew she was very intelligent but she is so funny. She is beautiful. I was intimidated when I first got out of that limo."
