THIS IS THE GET IN THE GAME PODCAST
WITH SCOTT LINEBRINK
One of the most successful hitters of his era, Mark Teixeira played 14 years in the major leagues, racking up numerous awards and honors and winning a World Series in 2009 with the New York Yankees.
After starring at Georgia Tech, Teixeira was drafted No. 5 overall in 2001 by the Texas Rangers, for whom he played from 2003-2007. After brief stints with the Atlanta Braves and Los Angeles Angels, he finished his career with eight seasons as a member of the Yankees. He was selected to the All-Star Game three times, won five Gold Glove Awards, three Silver Slugger Awards and was the American League home runs and runs batted in leader in 2009.
Since retiring in 2016, he has focused on spending time with his family in Austin, Texas. Teixeira joins Scott Linebrink this week on “Get in the Game” to talk about life after baseball, his charitable efforts that he started during his career and is continuing still, and how his relationship with God is at the center of what he does.
“Get in the Game” is part of the Sports Spectrum Podcast Network.
