Former big league pitcher turned Christian radio broadcaster Frank Pastore died yesterday of injuries sustained during a motorcycle accident in November. He was 55.
Pastore was a second round draft pick by the Cincinnati Reds in 1975. He made his big league debut with the Reds in 1979 with his best season coming in 1980 when he went 13-7 with a respectable 3.27 ERA with 9 complete games.
After seven seasons with the Reds, Pastore ended his big league career in 1986 with the Minnesota Twins.
A former atheist, Pastore began to embrace Christianity in 1984 after a Steve Sax line drive shattered his pitching elbow. Two decades later, after attaining graduate degrees in theology and political science would launch a radio show on KKLA, a Christian radio station in Los Angeles which addressed both religion and politics from a conservative point of view. Pastore also wrote a regular column at Townhall.com.
What is eerie about Pastore’s passing is that during his final broadcast he spoke hypothetically about being in a motorcycle accident. The accident would occur only a few hours later.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
