THIS IS THE SPORTS SPECTRUM PODCAST
WITH JASON ROMANO, FEATURING JACOB HOUSE

Jacob House is a former professional baseball player who is currently serving with Sports Spectrum as a marketing integration manager. In college, House played baseball at Arkansas and Texas A&M. In his two seasons with the Aggies, House hit over .300 twice and had 108 RBIs in 128 games played, helping his team to a Big 12 championship in 2011 as well as a berth in the Men’s College World Series.

In 2012, House was selected in the 20th round of the MLB Draft by the Arizona Diamondbacks. He played just one season at Single-A, hitting .281 in 36 games, before walking away from the game he played since he was a kid.

Today on the podcast, we talk to Jacob House about his baseball journey, serving in sports ministry, his time at Texas A&M, his testimony of faith, walking away from his baseball dream, and finding his true identity and purpose.
