Daniel Murphy branded his name onto a baseball on a HR

New, comment

Daniel Murphy put his name on Friday night's game, and one of the baseballs used during.

The New York Mets beat the Los Angeles Dodgers in Game 1 of their National League Division Series on Friday night at Dodger Stadium. The first run of the game came on this Daniel Murphy home run against Clayton Kershaw.

Murphy crushed a 2-0 fastball into the right field bullpen in the fourth inning, giving New York a 1-0 lead. But what made the home run memorable was that Murphy hit the ball so hard, his own name from his bat became imprinted on the ball.

Murphy really tattooed that baseball.
