SS PODCAST: White Sox chaplain Mickey Weston on his pro career, serving in baseball ministry

THIS IS THE SPORTS SPECTRUM PODCAST

Mickey Weston is the executive director of Unlimited Potential Incorporated, a ministry that serves the professional baseball community. A former player, Weston was selected in the 12th round of the 1982 MLB Draft by the New York Mets and went on to play professionally for 15 seasons in the minor leagues and parts of five seasons in the majors with the Orioles, Blue Jays, Phillies and Mets.

Upon retiring from baseball in 1996, Weston joined UPI to serve in ministry. He is also in his 18th season serving players in Chicago as the team chaplain for the White Sox.

On today’s podcast, we talk to Weston about being drafted by the Mets, playing minor-league baseball with Dwight Gooden, his MLB debut in June 1989, when he began to think about going into ministry, and how his experience as a baseball player has helped build trust with the current players he serves in Chicago.
