Former MLB pitcher Scott Linebrink shares his story of sports and faith

Scott Linebrink played 12 seasons as a pitcher with the Giants, Astros, Padres, Brewers, White Sox and Braves.

Selected by the Giants in the second round of the 1997 MLB Amateur Draft, he made his Major League Baseball debut on April 1, 2000, with San Francisco. Linebrink’s best season came in 2005 with San Diego, when he went 8-1, with a 1.83 ERA in 73 games pitched. His final MLB pitch would be thrown in 2011 with Atlanta. After a stint with the Cardinals in Spring Training 2012, injuries prevented Linebrink from ever taking the mound in St. Louis, and in June, the club released him.

Scott is a follower of Jesus Christ and shared his Christian testimony with The Increase.

This is his story.
