Terry Pluto discusses sports, faith & his favorite interview
Sportswriting legend Terry Pluto visited us last Tuesday, and he had a lot to say on a range of topics.
- why baseball is his favorite sport to write about
- the last time he interviewed LeBron James one on one
- the flowery phrases of Cleveland Indians pitcher Dennis Martinez
- the most scared he’s ever been of an athlete
- the last time sports made him cry
- and how covering sports journalism has changed in the last 40 years.
Pluto has also written several columns and even books about his faith in God.
He talked about why and when he began writing columns about faith and how prayer affects his sportswriting.
Finally, he told us who his favorite person to interview is. (Surprise, it’s not an athlete!)
