NEW PODCAST: Matt Wieters - Four-Time MLB All-Star Catcher

THIS IS EPISODE 442 OF THE SPORTS SPECTRUM PODCAST

Matt Wieters has played 11 seasons as a Major League Baseball catcher. He was selected in the first round (fifth overall) of the 2007 MLB Amateur Draft by the Baltimore Orioles. Two years later, he made his MLB debut for Baltimore against the Detroit Tigers, and a day later he collected his first career MLB hit, a triple off pitcher Justin Verlander.

During his nine seasons in Baltimore, Wieters was named to four All-Star teams and won the Gold Glove award in 2011 and 2012. In 2017 and 2018, Wieters was a catcher for the Washington Nationals, and in 2019 he played with the St. Louis Cardinals.

On this episode of the podcast, we talk to Wieters about his 2019 season with the Cardinals, playing and learning from legendary catcher Yadier Molina, how he’s trusting in God’s plan for the 2020 baseball season, being a light in the clubhouse, and why it is important to live in the increase of Christ.
