SS PODCAST: Former MLB pitcher Brandon Puffer on baseball, prison, restoration

THIS IS THE SPORTS SPECTRUM PODCAST
WITH JASON ROMANO, FEATURING BRANDON PUFFER

Brandon Puffer is a former professional baseball pitcher. He was selected in the 27th round of the 1994 MLB Draft by the Minnesota Twins. After stints with the Angels, Reds and Rockies, Puffer signed with the Astros and made his MLB debut on April 17, 2002. He also had contracts with the Red Sox, Padres and Giants.

In 2008, Puffer’s baseball career ended when he was arrested for burglary of a habitation with the intent to commit a felony. Puffer was found guilty in 2009 and sentenced to five years in prison. He made parole in 2011 after more than three years in prison and since then has restored his life. He is back in baseball as the co-founder of GPS Texas Baseball, where he is a pitching instructor and coach.

Today on the podcast, we talk to Puffer about his love for baseball, making it to the big leagues, being arrested, his time in prison, and how God has redeemed and restored him for a new purpose in life.
