THIS IS THE TABLE FORTY PODCAST
WITH MATT AND LESLEE HOLLIDAY
Josh Willingham played 11 seasons in the major leagues with stints on the Florida Marlins, Washington Nationals, Oakland Athletics, Minnesota Twins and Kansas City Royals. He hit 195 career home runs and won the Silver Slugger Award in 2012, when he hit a career-high 35 home runs and drove in a career-high 110 runs.
He and his wife, Ginger, met in high school in Florence, Alabama, and began dating while in college at North Alabama. Together they have three sons: Rhett, Ryder and Rogan. After he retired following the 2014 season, Josh and Ginger started the Josh Willingham Foundation, which helps at-risk children and provides support to organizations that combat child abuse.
In today’s podcast, they talk with Matt and Leslee about their faith, Josh’s career, their charitable involvement during and after Josh’s career, and how they both followed God’s discernment to know when it was time to retire. Josh and Ginger also talk about parenting and what has made their marriage last.
