God in the Bullpen! How else would one describe the One who rescued a major league pitcher? Many professional athletes have experimented with drugs. When I was told by a respected veteran that I would never make it in the major leagues without amphetamines, I trusted him and took them. They gave me a feeling of invincibility, but they hurt my performance. Soon, the "greenies" became a habit, and eventually I washed them down with alcohol. Of course, that became a habit, too. Eventually, addiction led to failed rehabilitation efforts and an automobile accident while driving impaired that nearly took my life. When I reached the lowest point ever, the ultimate relief pitcher, God, came from the bullpen and saved my life. I was later diagnosed with cirrhosis. My liver was incurably damaged by the alcohol. With His help, I am battling this, but only God can know how much time I have left. I want to tell my story to help others avoid the pitfalls that brought me to a time of despair. I also want to tell you that the LORD can help you if you will give your life to Him: and, He will give you eternal life in Heaven.
