MEET CHRIS SAMPSON

 

Christopher Keith Sampson is an American former Major League Baseball right-handed pitcher.

But he has quite the story. Sampson was drafted in 1999 by the Astros as a shortstop out of Texas Tech University. After struggling to hit in is first year of professional baseball, he decided to retire and take a coaching position at Collin College in Plano, Texas.

In a story that seems straight out of Disney, Sampson would frequently throw batting practice to his hitters and realized that after a couple of years away from playing, he may be able to pitch professionally. He ended up coming back and pitching five years in his career with the Astros, going 20-15 with a 4.42 ERA in 174 games.

Since retirement his passion is helping athletes and people of all ages achieve their health and fitness goals.
