NEW PODCAST: Tony Graffanino - Former MLB Player

THIS IS EPISODE 464 OF THE SPORTS SPECTRUM PODCAST

Tony Graffanino played 13 seasons in the major leagues from 1996-2009. He was selected in the 10th round of the 1990 MLB Amateur Draft by the Atlanta Braves and made his MLB debut six years later in April 1996.

He went on to play for seven different teams in his 13 years, including stints with the Rays, White Sox, Royals, Red Sox, Brewers and Indians.

Upon retirement, Graffanino entered into ministry and is currently working with Unlimited Potential Incorporated (UPI), as well as serving with the White Sox as the team’s spring training chaplain. He leads a variety of small groups for players and their wives in the Phoenix area throughout the year, and has helped serve missionaries in more than eight different countries around the world.

On this episode of the podcast, we talk to Graffanino about his baseball career, coming to faith in Christ, being a Christian in the big leagues, and why he felt called into baseball ministry.
