NOTE: Fight starts at the 4:30 spot on the video. I'm not trying to get you to learn about Jesus. Just the best video I found with this fight highlighted. Mike Sweeney's take on his career and the...

Sweeney is definately going to hell for what he did that day.  Its too bad, but there is nothing he can do to change that fact.

You are all wrong there are only two things that set Mike sweeney off and that's when when you insult his family or disrespect the Lord.

Wow and after all these years i would have never guessed that my god father would have gotten into a fight like that but to know that you did the right thing Mike by asking for forgiveness, that has always been one of the reasons why i have looked up to you because you have always been a better man by doing the right thing. But what brought me to tears was your past and how young you were when you're passion for baseball started, it's crazy how history repeats its self with me im glad to call you family my god father. And congratulations on making it into the KC hall of fame. Love you Mike and i hope to see you soon.😁

Its OK Mike, we Royals fans forgive you for being on the worst Royals teams ever. Hope your enjoying seeing them play now...up 2-0 on the Angels as I type.

Weaver was not well liked by the rest of his teammates and as the story goes, they weren't exactly charging in to save him. Weaver ended up with the Yankees next year and Torre at one point said something to the effect like "they (his yankees teammates) just don't seem to play for him."

Whether one is a believer or not, forgiveness is cleansing. How can you expect someone to forgive you, if you don't forgive those who you have done wrong to? As someone who forgiveness is hard for, I have to remind myself constantly.

Forgiveness may be cleansing but a good old-fashioned ass-kicking is what some ass-holes deserve!

+Deborah Davis In the mood I am in today, I could not agree more. I am human, and people don't think I am capable of anger. Right now, it takes restraint to not smack someone.

I really can't get mad at Sweeney.  I am certain it's the brass of the Royals and MLB who encourage (via $$$) to talk God and prayer etc because it helps create fan interest and spending at the stadium and on merchandise all around, even outside KC where young fans love to get the #29 KC jersey. I'm catholic and I'm certain there is no God or Satan, even though I have no proof.  I appreciated guys like Brett who never brought up religion, fucking stupid.  Nowadays seeing all these tattoo covered guys who kiss their hand and point upwards after every key hit is pathetic, very insincere and cheesy.

+joel foster Of course I'm an atheist. I'm saying I was raised catholic. And I'm not criticizing any of their beliefs.  I'm criticizing them for "showboating" their beliefs.  It's so cheesy - except to others like them, people such as yourself.

i'm atheist, but you can't deny the power of that analogy. Get on the back seat and "just pedal". You have to trust that you will be lead the right way as you work your hardest. That's all we have as atheists, Christians, Buddhists or whatever.

Most people on steroids find ways to pass their tests so they can play. Otherwise, what would be the point of taking steroids? I'm not bitter. If he's claiming God did this for him, then clearly he doesn't think he could have done it himself. This was all before steroid tests were common too, so he could have easily gotten away with it.

I remember this it was great... Weaver didn't know what hit him haha.

Vulgar, maybe. Inappropriate, not at all. I'm not angry, I just find it a bit ridiculous that people think God has anything to do with this. What kind of God would God be if helping people out in sports (read- games) apparently happens all the time, yet horrible situations in the world go un-addressed. And if you think that he didn't start steroids the minute they told him he wasn't going to make it, then you're delusional. There is nothing for you to feel sorry about for me.

@billcottles Doesn't take religious belief to admit when you're wrong, either.

How In The Fuck Is Sweeney Tebow Seriously What The Fuck He's Different
Report spam or abuse
But his big jump in homeruns came when he turned 25 and he finally played a full season. Most MLB power hitters will have more consistant homerun totals from their mid 20's to their early 30's.

Rdguitar589, your comments are vulgar and inappropriate. You just had to say something nasty. I am sure God cares about every detail. This is a great video. I feel sorry for you and hope you can get a hold of your anger bro.

Uhhh listening to him talk about how god helped him makes me sick.
Report spam or abuse
why does it make people sick that he talks about God. The people commenting about the money he makes you should look into how much he gives back. Most of the people who complain about that do not even donate 10 dollars a year to a charity. Mike glad there are athletes like you, sports are dwindling with punks, and scumbags. Your one of the good guys.

when i first started getting interested in baseball my dad took me to a game at Kauffman stadium. i remember it as one of the great moments of my life though the Royals were not so good at the time i remember having as much fun as a 5 year old can. i remember Mike Sweeney hit a 3 run go ahead home run in the 8th! i told my dad he was my favorite player and though he has moved on he will always hold a special place in all of the baseball players that i am fans of

Something tells me that Jason didn't much pay attention in English class. Learn how to spell you stupid ass!! Capital letters and spelling would be a bonus!!! When you get off of work at Burger King tonight pick up a dictionary and learn how to spell. It's Christ not crist. What a dumbass!!!!! Make sure you respond with another ignorant comment.

I wish i could get my hands on simpletons like you. How can you slam someone for wanting to do good in their life? Are you some animal or just fucking stupid. He's successful, and it obviously worked for him. While youre on your ass with your winner decisions in life. When someone says anything bad about gays, they are a homophobe and called ignorant. So what are you for bashing a mans belief in God and taking care of his family? Youre a true scumbag.

Dude you have to watch what you say. Why do you care that he is religious? God helped Mike shape his life around into something he can look back and be proud of. He used God to help him become successful. I'm no religious guru but maybe you should look to God for some support because, god knows what you are probably doing i just sitting on your computer for 10 hours a day criticizing people because you are jealous they work harder than you and have a passion to do something in life.

Not any hard evidence. He did jump from 19 HRs in his first four seasons combined to 104 HRs in his second four seasons. Those second four seasons happen to coincide with the time period when steroids were used the most in the MLB. After that his performance dropped off significantly and he returned to his previous "steroids" stats.

He played in 230 games with only 691 total AB through his first 4 seasons. The next 4 seasons he played in 582 games with 2223 AB. I would hope he would hit more HRs. For the next 8 seasons he topped 100 games only 3 times due to injury and age. So I think his homerun totals accurately reflect you average power hitting 1B.

But his overall percentage of homeruns jumped so much. In reality it should have stayed relatively stable. Of course he'll hit more, but he was hitting them much more frequently.

Not understanding the comments implying that Sweeney is saying God wanted him to a have a high batting average or impressive statistics. I hear him saying he made faith more important than baseball and just gave his best effort at something he had a gift to do. Sure, stats aren't important to the God of the universe. But effort and attitude--what we do with our time on this earth, I think, are.
