Former Major League Baseball player Dale Murphy revealed over the weekend that his son, Tyson, “was shot in the eye with a rubber bullet while peacefully protesting for justice for George Floyd” Saturday night in Denver, but the eye was saved by protective goggles.
The 64-year-old former NL MVP then shared a photo of his son as well as a drawing his son drew of Floyd:
His former teammate with the Phillies, Lenny Dykstra, saw the post and proceeded to call him out for being a member of Antifa.
Floyd died while in Minneapolis police custody when former Minneapolis officer Derek Chauvin, who was charged with third-degree murder as well as second-degree manslaughter, put his knee on the neck of the unarmed 46-year-old for minutes during the arrest.
Protests surrounding police brutality and racial injustice have erupted nationwide over the weekend.
