THIS IS EPISODE 250 OF THE SPORTS SPECTRUM PODCAST
Jason Adam is a pitcher with the Kansas City Royals. He was selected in the fifth round of the 2010 MLB Draft by the Royals but his ride to the majors was anything but smooth — injuries, a trade, being released multiple times.
But after six seasons in the minor leagues, Adam’s dream became a reality in May 2018 when he was recalled by Kansas City. He would finish the year pitching in 31 MLB games, striking out 37 batters in 32.1 innings pitched. In December 2018, Adam re-signed with the Royals on a one-year deal.
Jason and his wife, Kelsey, were married in 2014 and in 2018, they welcomed their first child, a baby girl named Kinsley.
On this episode of the podcast, we learn about Adam’s crazy journey to the big leagues, going to seminary with his wife, becoming a new dad, and the day he got called up to the Royals.
