Life Stories

From Major Leagues to Milestone

Blake found something of great value and significance in a place he didn’t expect.

Blake Beavan, a Major League pitcher and first-round round draft pick for the Texas Rangers in 2007, suffered a career-ending shoulder injury in 2014. In the wake of his injury and the shattered dream of playing professional baseball, Blake started attending Milestone with his wife, joined a small group and now has started inviting his friends to join him at church. Check out his journey in this video:

Let’s stand in prayer with Blake and his family for continued healing as he nears the end of his rehabilitation journey and makes the transition back into playing baseball. Blake, thank you for being willing to share your story with our church. I’m excited to see what God is doing and will continue to do in your family.

    Blake threw hard and injury free all of 2016. Be praying for God to launch this disciple maker back in to the majors with a good team this Spring!
