THIS IS EPISODE 545 OF THE SPORTS SPECTRUM PODCAST
Steve Palazzolo is a former pro baseball pitcher who is currently a senior analyst with Pro Football Focus, a football analytics website.
He played his college baseball at UMass-Lowell and wasn’t drafted, but signed to play independent-league ball with the Florence Freedom in Kentucky. He was able to turn that opportunity into an eight-year pro baseball career that saw him reach as high as Triple-A with the Brewers, Giants and Mariners organizations.
After his baseball career came to an end in 2011, he pursued his passion to work in pro football, joining Cris Collinsworth and the team from Pro Football Focus. Palazzolo currently lives in Cincinnati with his wife and four children, and serves in the local church and with a local addiction program called “Heritage House.”
On today’s podcast, we talk to Palazzolo about his pro baseball career, his unique job with Pro Football Focus, coming to faith on a baseball road trip in Nashville, and his desire to serve those who are stuck in addiction.
