Billy Freeman was on his way to becoming a professional baseball player, when a knee injury ended his career. This began a downward spiral that eventually brought him to the Gospel Center Rescue Mission.
Billy was raised by great parents and surrounded himself with positive influences. He was a baseball star in high school and a lot of people relied on his athletic abilities. He had a bright future ahead of him, but his dreams were shattered when he broke his knee cap.
“I wrapped my entire identity around baseball. When it was over I had nothing. I was nobody,” said Billy.
