Chris Burke was selected in the first round of the 2001 MLB Draft (10th overall) by the Houston Astros. The University of Tennessee product was named Round Rock AA MVP in 2003 and then won the Pacific Coast League Rookie of the Year in AAA with the New Orleans Zephyrs in 2004.
Burke would make his MLB debut on July 4, 2004 against the Texas Rangers and would get his first MLB hit on September 14, 2004 against the Cardinals.
In 2005, Chris Burke became a hero to the Houston Astros faithful as he would hit a walk-off, series ending home run in the 18 inning marathon that was Game 4 of the National League Division Series against Atlanta.
On this episode of the podcast, we get Chris' thoughts on the 2018 Boston Red Sox, throwing out the first pitch of Game 4 of the 2018 ALCS, meeting Christian singer Tauren Wells, where his faith in Christ was rooted for him and what it was like to hit a NLDS series ending, walk-off home run in 2005 for Houston.
