Former MLB pitcher Dave Dravecky shares his story of sports and faith

Dave Dravecky played eight seasons as a pitcher in Major League Baseball with the San Diego Padres and San Francisco Giants. He was an All-Star in 1983 when he won 14 games with San Diego.

His career came to an abrupt end in 1989, when Dravecky suffered a horrific arm injury. A few years later, that arm and his shoulder would be amputated.

Since retirement, Dave has become a motivational speaker. He’s an outspoken follower of Jesus Christ and shared his Christian testimony with us at The Increase.

This is his story.
