Lutheran Baseballers

Click here to read a great post by the Rebellious Pastor's Wife about Bill Wambsganss, the only baseball player to ever turn an unassisted triple play in World Series History (1920). He also happens to have been a Missouri Synod Lutheran, and the gymnasium at Concordia Theological Seminary, Ft. Wayne is named after him.

And Gene Veith at Cranach adds that Scott Linebrink, relief pitcher for the San Diego Padres, attends an LCMS church and is the great-grandson of Francis Pieper, one of the greatest theologians of the Missouri Synod and author of a three-volume dogmatics text that is still used at our seminaries today.
