MLB Shortstop Tommy Edman Shares Testimony: ‘I Once Was’

By Movieguide® Contributor  

A shortstop for Major League Baseball and St. Louis Cardinal’s Golden Glove winner, Tommy Edman, recently talked about how he had “one eye set on the world and one eye set on God.”  

Shortly after he finished his time at Stanford University, Edman was drafted by the St. Louis Cardinals. It was during his time in St. Louis that he saw what it meant to live for God.  

He saw other men live with integrity on and off the field and “the one thing that was different with them was that they all had their eyes fully set on God.”  

It was then that he realized he had to make a change if he wanted to live up to the potential that God had in mind for him.  

It was guys like Adam Wainwright and Paul Goldschmidt that he looked up to his entire life playing baseball. Edman admired the way they played and their success on the baseball diamond but also admired who they were as children of God once he got to know them off the baseball diamond.  

“As soon as I got to be in a clubhouse with them and saw that they lived out that light, not just on TV and on cameras, but also the behind the scenes as well. They were men of integrity. Seeing how those guys conducted themselves at all times throughout the day really made a huge impact on myself and inspired me to turn both eyes to God. To turn away from the world and both eyes to God,” Edman stated in a recent Sports Spectrum ‘I Once Was’ video.  

Edman recently posted on his Instagram when he sat down with Sports Spectrum to talk about his growing faith.  

“It helps to rely on my faith and to rely on Jesus,” the post captioned.
