Pitcher Jason Hanna delayed career to serve a mission


azstarnet.com: A life in order

At 24, ‘ancient’ Tucsonan beginning pro baseball career

The 24-year-old pitcher with a 6-year-old plate in his head and a like-new arm has written his life’s plan on the bill of his Colorado Rockies cap.

The verse from the Book of Mormon explains and rationalizes Jason Hanna’s unlikely journey to professional baseball.

Scribbled in small letters is the verse from Mosiah 4:27:

And see that all these things are done in wisdom and order; for it is not requisite that a man should run faster than he has strength.

And again, it is expedient that he should be diligent, that thereby he might win the prize; therefore, all things must be done in order.
