Liam Hendriks is a relief pitcher with the Oakland Athletics. In 2019, Hendriks had a career season that saw him selected to his first MLB All-Star Game, as he finished the season with 124 strikeouts, 85 innings, 25 saves and an ERA of 1.80 in 75 games.
He holds the distinction of being the first Australian-born player to ever start an MLB postseason game. He made his MLB debut on Sept. 6, 2011, with the Twins, and then pitched for Toronto and Kansas City before arriving in Oakland in 2016.
On this episode of the podcast, we talk with Hendriks about the ongoing pandemic, his preparation during this quarantine time, his All-Star Game experience, handling success during the 2019 season, and how God and his wife helped keep him humble.
