The Evan Gattis story reaches a milestone. He has gone from high school baseball star, to suffering depression, to quitting baseball, to discovering nonduality, to finding out his true nature, to getting back into baseball, to playing professionally. His story is best told in this Sports Illustrated article.
Last night his team, the Houston Astros, won the World Series (advance to 9:22 if you do not wish to watch all the game’s highlights). Winning the Series is every baseball player’s dream and few achieve it.
Gattis does not make a public display of nondualistic claims and confessions as do Jim Carrey and Prince Ea. Some day in a book or movie he may do so. Or not. Meanwhile there’s more to come. He’s only 31 and has more years to play baseball.
