Episode 147

Eddie Taubensee played 11 seasons in the Major Leagues with the Indians, Astros and Reds from 1991-2001. He made his MLB debut on May 18, 1991 with Cleveland and was then traded to the Astros the following season. He would play for 3 years until 1994 when he was again traded, this time to the Reds. 

Taubensee would play 7 seasons in Cincinnati, where he would hit a career-high .311 with 21 home runs and 87 RBI for a Reds team in 1999 that fell one game short of the playoffs. 

After retiring from baseball in 2001, Eddie decided to make God and his family the priority. Along with his wife Renee, he would help raise their 3 boys and go into baseball ministry with Pro Athletes Outreach. 

In 2017, he returned to pro ball as the hitting coach of the San Francisco Giants Class A affiliate Augusta Greenjackets in the South Atlantic League. 

On this episode of the podcast, we talk with Eddie Taubensee about baseball ministry, trying his hand at coaching, why Barry Larkin was the best leader he ever played with, how baseball helped led him to Christ, and how he navigated through temptations and trials as a believer.
