You might think it is impossible to forget about fifty thousand people in the stands and focus on pitching, but I’m able to go out to the mound, relax and have fun. That’s only possible because of my relationship with Jesus Christ, "I can do everything through Him who gives me strength" (Philippians 4:13). Christ not only gives me the strength to make it through the tough times in baseball and in life, but best of all He gives me peace and assurance that I will spend eternity in heaven. In 1988 I recognized that I could never be good enough to earn my way into heaven and that Jesus paid the price for my sins when He died on the cross. The Bible says, "it is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in man" (Psalm 188:8). Jesus came to make a way for us to be right with God because our sin separates us from Him. The decision I made to place my trust in Jesus Christ for the payment of my sins was greater than anything I could ever experience in baseball because with Christ I have the promise of eternal life.
