Here's the scoop on my friend GABE GROSS:
Getting to the heart of what matters in life -- in the words of an athlete in the news.
GABE GROSS, Tampa Bay Rays
BIO NOTE: Gabe's dad, Lee, played in the NFL for the New Orleans Saints and the Baltimore Colts.
RECENT NEWS: On any other year, being traded to the Tampa Bay Rays would be a step into baseball oblivion. But not anymore--at least for now. Now it means playing for the first place team in the American League East. Yes, the Rays are ahead of the Red Sox, the Yankees, and the whole division. And a lot of the credit goes to Gross. He singled off Mariano Rivera in the 11th inning in St. Petersburg Tuesday night to send home the winning run and push the Rays into to top spot in the East.
FAITH QUOTE: "God takes care of the sparrows, and He makes sure they have what they need. How much more important are we than those. I know that He's going to take care of me in whatever situation I'm in. As long as I put Him in first place and serve Him first, everything else will fall in place." - Sports Spectrum
