    ORLANDO, Fla. (BP)--Eddie Taubensee spent 11 seasons as a catcher in Major League Baseball until a back injury cut his career short.

    Although he didn’t know it at the time, that injury actually opened a door for him to expand his ministry.

    “Eleven years in the big leagues, and I am having more fun now than I ever did,” Taubensee said.

    Good testimony, but you said he was a professional athlete and his testimony said he played for Cincinnati. :rolleyes:

    Howard Johnson (HoJo)- former Met third baseman - and current hitting instructer for the Binhamton Mets - was the chapel speaker at Practical Bible College - for "College Days" last Friday!

    Jan has his autograph on an 8x10 glossy from the era of his playing days!
