Playing in the major leagues is a privilege. It has brought meaningful memories into my life and a chance to be involved in many significant relationships in and out of the game. Early in my career I had the opportunity to have the most meaningful relationship ever offered. In 1989 I received Jesus Christ as my Savior and He has changed my life. It is a great privilege to be called one of His children. The Bible states, "But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name" (John 1:12). Walking and talking with Jesus is a lifelong process. He has given me a new approach to life. I now try to the best of my ability to represent Him on the playing field. I have a strong desire to serve Him, share Him, and live for Him. I want people to see Jesus in me and on the field. Christ displayed His awesome love, dying on the cross personally for you too as the payment for sin then He rose from the dead three days later. The only way to God is through Jesus His Son. Repent of your sins and trust Him today as your Savior and Lord.
