AUGUST 2015 – It has taken several years and a few turns and detours, but Ben Zobrist has made it to Kansas City.

Zobrist’s father, Tom, is a pastor in Eureka, Illinois and was a graduate of Calvary Bible College in Kansas City. Ben was going to attend his dad’s alma matter.

Ben, however, did like playing baseball, but had no college offers after high school. At the suggestion of his high school coach, he attended a senior showcase in Peoria, Illinois and received a scholarship from Olivet Nazarene University.
