"My wife said I was [interested]," Murphy said, laughing.
Murphy endured public criticism earlier this season when he missed two games, including Opening Day, for the birth of his son. In Washington, he will speak on a panel including White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough, Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx and Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisors Jason Furman.
"I don't really have a whole lot of experience in it," Murphy said of fatherhood. "I feel humbled to be asked about it. My wife has two months of experience. I've had the easy part.
"I think I'll keep my ears open more than I do my mouth."
