Cincinnati Reds second baseman Scooter Gennett is fresh off making his first appearance in MLB’s Midsummer Classic, and he credits God for getting him to where he is right now.
An article in Sports Spectrum on Tuesday details many of the times Gennett has spoken openly about his faith and devotion to God.
According to Gennett, it’s his belief in God that has enabled him to gain a new perspective on his career. He feels that things will still be alright for him even if his career in the Majors ends because he knows that when it’s all said and done, he will be able to go to Heaven and be with his Lord and Savior.
Gennett also said he believes that he wouldn’t have been able to make it through the trying times of his career if he weren’t able to pray and talk to God.
He added, “God’s with me wherever I go. Whether it’s on the field or in the locker room, He’s always with me. It all points back to the Love of Christ who has a purpose for my life.”
Gennett began his Major League career with the Milwaukee Brewers back in 2013. Gennett posted a batting line of .279/.318/.420 over the course of four seasons with the Brewers, per Baseball Reference.
