The Average Catholic enjoys watching baseball 🙂
Alex Avila, the catcher for the Tigers, is interviewed by Trent Beattie from the National Catholic Register. Yes, I’m a Tigers fan 🙂
In it, Avila discusses baseballs (of course) including his position as catcher, and the Tigers “near-miss” at going to the World Series last year. He also talks about his participation in the All-Star game last year.
Alex Avila also talks about his Catholic Faith. He talks about his god-father, Tommy Lasorda, his family’s history including his grandparents escape from Cuba, and his paternal grandfather’s miraculous survival as a baby.
I especially liked Avila’s discussion about the sacrament of Confession.
