SS PODCAST: Tampa Bay Rays outfielder Brett Phillips on baseball, Bible studies & FUN

THIS IS THE SPORTS SPECTRUM PODCAST
WITH JASON ROMANO, FEATURING BRETT PHILLIPS

Brett Phillips is an outfielder with the Tampa Bay Rays, a sixth-round selection by the Houston Astros in the the 2012 MLB Amateur Draft. Five years later, he made his MLB debut on June 5, 2017, with the Milwaukee Brewers. After two seasons with the Brewers, he was traded to Kansas City, where he spent three seasons. In August 2020, he was once again traded, this time to the Rays, where he found himself in a pennant race that ultimately saw Tampa win the American League championship.

In October 2020, on his sport’s biggest stage at the World Series, Phillips became a baseball hero. In Game 4 against the L.A. Dodgers, Phillips was at bat in the bottom of the ninth inning with two runners on and his team down one run. He lined a single to right field, and both runners would ultimately score on the hit, giving the Rays a Game 4 World Series win, 8-7. (Los Angeles, however, went on to win the series in six games.)

Today on the podcast, we welcome back Phillips to tell us about his World Series moment, why baseball is fun, how his faith in God leads to the joy he brings each day on the field, and his MLB All-Star Game correspondent experience.
