Matt LaPorta–Drawing Strength from the Almighty Source

Matt LaPorta is one of baseball’s brightest young prospects as many of you well know. He also seems to be one of several humble and congenial young men in the minor leagues. LaPorta periodically contributes to a journal through minorleaguebaseball.com recounting some of his experiences as a minor leaguer and top prospect.

LaPorta has used this opportunity to share his Christian faith with those who read his journal, often infusing a reference to scripture in each entry. In an age where media sources scour the realm of athletics to publicize the dinge and dirt of professional sports, it is refreshing to read a little about players like Matt who opt to share with us the joy and blessings that they have received in living out their dreams.
