Baseball news feeds were abuzz this week as Freddie Freeman made his Major League debut after getting a call up from the Atlanta Braves. The newbie was even in the starting lineup. The 20 year-old first baseman has been described as a “phenom” and is a contender for Minor League Player of the Year.
But did you know Freddie also grew up in The Salvation Army? His family has been a part of it for 6 generations! Check out this video interview, courtesy of WAPT in Jackson, MS, of Atlanta Brave Freddie Freeman discussing his faith, baseball, and The Salvation Army.
Also, we’re happy to report that Freddie won his game Wednesday night against the NY Mets. The final score was 4-1.
