THIS IS THE SPORTS SPECTRUM PODCAST
Bryan Koch is a former pro baseball player who was selected in the 26th round of the 1982 MLB Draft by the Chicago White Sox. A promising career was cut short just a few years later when Koch was blinded in his left eye by a 90-mph fastball. Koch’s baseball injury led him into ministry, and for 33 years he was the pastor of GT Church in Reading, Pennsylvania.
For many years, Koch served God faithfully, but that faith was tested in June 2015 when a severe motorcycle accident took the life of his wife of 28 years, Lynn. Bryan survived the crash but was in a coma, endured 19 surgeries, 36 blood transfusions and had his left leg amputated.
This pain turned Koch’s story into one of triumph and purpose. His new book, “I’m All Right: A Journey of Tragedy and Triumph,” is available now. Y0u can learn more about Koch at his website BryanKoch.net.
Today on the podcast, Koch shares his incredibly powerful story of playing pro baseball, pastoring a church, losing his wife, finding forgiveness, and going from bitter to better.
