Dear Listener! Super excited about today’s episode with my guest Xavier Scruggs. Xavier is an American professional baseball first baseman who previously played in Major League Baseball (MLB) for the St. Louis Cardinals and Miami Marlins, and the NC Dinos of the KBO League.
He is the host of the Xtradordinary Athletes, a podcast that brings attention to intangibles and discusses topics that help promote wellness/success for the well rounded athlete.
A Major League Player who spent time with the St. Louis Cardinals and the Miami Marlins. He also spent time playing in Korea and multiple Latin countries. He has a background in communications, public speaking and writing. He is committed to providing a platform where athletes come together to maximize their potential outside of their sport. His time and experience as a professional athlete has equipped him with intangible tools and resources. He is turning those resources into opportunities to develop camps, workshops, and seminars to help prepare young athletes for their journey along the way. Xavier is motivated by his faith, his wife Jessica, and their two son’s Ezekiel and Xander.
