THIS IS THE GET IN THE GAME PODCAST
WITH SCOTT LINEBRINK
Almost a decade ago, Scott Linebrink took a trip to Honduras with Water Mission. Joined by St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright and Don Christensen of Ronald Blue Trust, the group was there to establish clean water resources for a country in which they are scarce.
Little did they know that living in a nearby community was a future major league player, Mauricio Dubón, now with the Houston Astros. A few days after that trip, Dubón left Honduras to pursue his MLB career. Growing up, he had felt the effects of unclean drinking water, experiencing occasional illnesses because of it. Now an established big league player and a member of the Astros’ 2022 World Series championship team, he caught wind of the trip that Linebrink and Wainwright took to help bring clean water to his community, and earlier this season he got to thank Wainwright in person for his efforts.
He joins “Get in the Game” this week to reflect with Linebrink about his road to the major leagues, as well as his encounter with Wainwright and how much it meant to him. This is Part 1 of a two-part series, with Wainwright rejoining the show next to share his version of the story and how much it impacted him.
