In this episode, Jen and Aaron are joined by Mat and Megean Wolf. Mat Wolf is the Savannah Bananas’ trick pitcher, while Megean will share all about her experience going on the mound during a professional baseball game.
Megean started playing softball when she was nine, and became competitive quickly thereafter. She played in college in Oklahoma City on scholarship. She had no intention of playing as part of the Savannah Bananas, but one day she caught the attention of the club, and they asked if she wanted to join.
Mat was excited to have Megean join the team. Megean was the one who encouraged him to try out for the Bananas in the first place. Learning more about pitching and being able to pitch at a Bananas game was a fun highlight for her.
Mat used to coach high school baseball, and he’s now a firefighter in Oklahoma City. He’s always been a goofy person who likes to have fun, and he’s always been passionate about making other people laugh. He played baseball in college, and now he gets to pick that dream up and live it out with the Savannah Bananas.
Performing on the baseball field can come with a lot of pressure. Megean’s dad was really hard on her growing up. When she or Mat are struggling out on the field, she reminds them their identity is in Christ, not in the game. Remembering who you are as a person can help you stay grounded when it comes time to play.
