NEW PODCAST: Kent Bottenfield - Former MLB Pitcher, Palm Beach Atlantic Baseball Coach

THIS IS EPISODE 378 OF THE SPORTS SPECTRUM PODCAST

Kent Bottenfield is the head baseball coach for Palm Beach Atlantic University. The former MLB pitcher was selected in the fourth round of the 1986 draft by the Montreal Expos. He made his MLB debut on July 6, 1992, for Montreal and went on to play 10 MLB seasons with the Expos, Rockies, Giants, Cubs, Cardinals, Angels, Phillies and Astros.

In 1999, Bottenfield was named to the National League All-Star team in a year that saw him go 18-7 with St. Louis.

In February 2012, he replaced Hall of Fame catcher Gary Carter as the new head coach for Palm Beach Atlantic.

On this episode of the podcast, we talk to Bottenfield about his MLB career, pitching in the steroid era, the McGwire/Sosa home run chase in 1998, how former teammate Gary Carter influenced his faith, and the unfortunate circumstances that led him to becoming the coach at Palm Beach Atlantic.
