SS PODCAST: Braves hitting coach Kevin Seitzer on winning the World Series, his faith in God

THIS IS THE SPORTS SPECTRUM PODCAST
WITH JASON ROMANO, FEATURING KEVIN SEITZER

Kevin Seitzer is a former MLB player and the current hitting coach for the Atlanta Braves. He was a member of the 2021 Braves team that won the World Series, and during his playing days was a two-time All-Star.

Originally selected in the 11th round of the 1983 MLB Amateur Draft, Seitzer made his MLB debut in September 1986. In 1987, after hitting .323 and tying an MLB record with 207 hits by a rookie, he finished second in the American League Rookie of the Year voting behind Mark McGwire. He went on to play 12 MLB seasons with Kansas City, Milwaukee, Oakland and Cleveland as a first and third baseman. After retiring in 1997, Seitzer got into coaching and had stops with Arizona, Kansas City and Toronto before arriving in Atlanta in October 2014.

Today on the podcast, we talk to Seitzer about the 2021 season, what it meant to win a World Series, how he came to faith in Christ, his love for coaching, and how he lives out that faith when things don’t go well.
