Great interview in the New York Daily News with Philadelphia Philly catcher and author of The 33-Year-Old Rookie. I just finished the book and it’s a great baseball story that details his long trip to the majors.
I’ve read the book, done with it now. It’s a good book, but won’t make my shelf for a book to keep forever. So, since I’m such a swell fellow, and appreciate ChristianSportsOnline readers so much, I’m going to give the book to someone. Simply send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and offer a suggestion to improve the site. Whatever you’d like to see us do better, share in a nice way. Next Sunday, we’ll draw a name, I’ll email you back and then send me your physical address. Easy as that.

Here’s the Youtube announcement.
