NEW PODCAST: Chris Guccione, MLB Umpire

THIS IS EPISODE 168 OF THE SPORTS SPECTRUM PODCAST

Chris Guccione is an umpire for Major League Baseball. He made his MLB debut on April 25, 2000, and has been a full-time umpire in the big leagues since 2009.

He has umpired many postseason series, including a division series six times, a league championship series twice, and his first World Series in 2016 (Cubs-Indians). He was also a part of the crew that umpired the 2011 MLB All-Star Game.

On this episode of the podcast, we hear Guccione’s incredible journey to Christ, why he finally made the decision to walk with the Lord, what it’s like to be a part of the umpiring crew at the World Series, and the difference between umpiring a regular-season game as opposed to the postseason.
