Bethel Graduate, MLB Pitcher Eric Stults to Speak at FCA Luncheon

Lissa Diaz
Bethel College Athletics is pleased to host the sixth annual Northern Indiana Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) Luncheon on Tuesday, April 12. While this marks the sixth year Bethel has been the host site for the fundraising event, due to growth in attendance, this is the first year the event will be held in the Wiekamp Center.

This year's keynote speaker is no stranger to Bethel's campus. An Argos, Ind., native, Bethel graduate, and MLB pitcher, Eric Stults will be sharing with those in attendance about the impact of FCA in his life along with the impact it can have on current and future student-athletes. Stults helped the Bethel Pilots baseball team to the 2002 NCCAA DI Baseball National Championship and compiled a 10-1 record from the mound that season. He has the fifth best career ERA on record at Bethel with a mark of 2.48, along with 22 career wins as a pitcher. In addition, he also collected NCCAA National Player of the Year honors in 2002 and was a two-time NCCAA All-American and MCC All-Conference selection. Stults also participated in basketball while at BC.

Professionally, Stults was drafted by the Los Angeles Dodgers and made his major league debut in 2006. Since then, Stults has taken the mound in 135 games for five different major league programs including the Dodgers, Rockies, White Sox, Padres and Braves.
