Anthony Rendon is the new third baseman for the Los Angeles Angels. He signed a seven year deal with the Angels in December 2019 and will begin the 2020 season in the middle of a lineup that includes Mike Trout and Albert Pujols.
Rendon was selected in the first round of the 2011 MLB Draft by the Washington Nationals (6th overall) and two years later would make his MLB debut on April 21, 2013. For the next 6 years, Anthony would be a key player in leading the Nationals to three NL East division titles (2014, 2016, and 2017) and a World Series championship in 2019.
In that 2019 season, Rendon had a career year, hitting .319 with 34 home runs and an MLB-leading 126 runs batted in. He finished third in the NL MVP voting and hit .276 with 2 home runs and 8 RBI in the 2019 World Series victory over Houston.
On this episode of the podcast, we talk to Rendon about winning a World Series, the decision to sign with the Angels, how his faith gives him peace and keeps him grounded and why an injury that he suffered at age 19 was what led him to turn his life over to the Lord.
