Philadelphia Phillies catcher J.T. Realmuto says despite suffering an in injury on the field, he’s keeping his hope in Jesus Christ and trust in God for whatever the future holds for his career. 

In an interview with “Faith on the Field Show,” Realmuto, whose contract with the Phillies is up after the end of this season if he doesn’t reach an agreement with management, explained that God has a perfect plan for his future.

“There’s no telling what’s going to happen in the next few months. It’s obviously a big time in our career, but my wife (Alexis) and I constantly have this conversation that it’s not really worth it for us to think about or stress about or worry about because He’s already got a plan,” the two-time All-Star said.

Realmuto, 29, is considered to be one of the best catchers in Major League Baseball and is expected to become a highly-sought-after free agent after his contract is up. He said times are uncertain all around, so he’s keeping his focus on the one who saved all.

“Especially in today’s day, being able to fall back on that relationship with Christ, if that’s the center of your life, all these problems that you’re going through, all these worries that you have, always seem a lot smaller. You can always have faith in Him that He’ll be there with you to get you through that,” he added.

Realmuto is not ashamed of his faith. He shared on his Twitter bio that he’s “Following Jesus Christ and chasing the dream!” The athlete grew up going to church and knew of Jesus but did not fully commit until he understood it for himself.

“I wasn’t necessarily on fire for Him,” Realmuto said on the podcast. “I wasn’t living for Him until I met [my wife].”
