MLB Player Andrew McCutchen Makes Emotional Return to Pittsburgh 

By Movieguide® Contributor 

Andrew McCutchen, the current Major League Baseball’s Pittsburgh Pirates outfielder made his five-year return in 2023.  

McCutchen played his first nine seasons with the Pirates and recently hit his first home run back as a Pirate.  

“I was trying to keep my feelings in check up there, but at the same time, I didn’t want to suppress them,” McCutchen said after Friday’s game. McCutchen admitted that he had to hold back tears. 

One moment in particular is when he walked past the visiting team’s clubhouse.  

“Man, I tell you, it was something walking and going past the visiting clubhouse, and I was like, ‘Thank God.’” 

McCutchen is one of Pittsburgh’s top players however, he doesn’t see it that way.  

Each game McCutchen is reminded what is more important than baseball. On each forearm, McCutchen wears a yellow band with a black stitched cross. In addition, he wears a cross earring in each ear.  

“This game is amazing and it is important, and I realize that, but God is more important than the game,” McCutchen said. 

McCutchen’s spiritual lineage came from his parents as both grew stronger in their faith when Andrew was born. His father became a minister, and his mother sang in the church choir.  

“God is the main thing,” McCutchen remembers from his father. “It’s good to have other interests, but know that no matter what happens, God is all you need. All your gifts are gifts from Him.” 

 McCutchen is still unashamed about his faith and holds tightly to Romans 8:28 through all circumstances.  

“That’s definitely something I’ve realized in my successes and my failures, … Jesus’ love never changes,” McCutchen said in another interview. “It doesn’t matter how well I do or how bad I do, His love for me never, never changes and it never will.”
