Scott Nute: Baseball and Ministry Biography

Born February 5‚ 1967 in Moberly‚ Missouri‚ Scott Nute was always involved in sports as a boy‚ especially baseball. During his senior year of high school in 1985‚ he led the State of New Mexico high school pitchers in strikeouts, and broke his high school’s 19-yr single season record for strikeouts. This record still stands today.

While attending college at New Mexico Highlands University and New Mexico State University, Scott accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior at the age of nineteen. After playing four years of collegiate baseball, he toured with Athletes in Action, a Christian sports ministry. During this tour‚ while his team was playing exhibition games in Honduras‚ Scott signed a professional baseball contract with the Detroit Tigers.

After a successful rookie year of minor league baseball‚ Scott attended his first professional spring training; however, due to an injury to his pitching shoulder‚ Scott was released from his contract.

Several months later‚ God called Scott to preach‚ specifically to do the work of an evangelist. His former professional baseball career is a unique aspect of Scott’s ministry that God uses to capture the attention of people‚ especially non-Christians and youth.  Read more about Scott’s Baseball Camp Outreaches.
