WARSAW – Former South Bend Cubs baseball player Chris Singleton has found a new calling as an inspirational speaker. Singleton will bring his message of positivity to the athletes at Warsaw Community High School.
Singleton, who was part of the Chicago Cubs minor league system, will speak with WCHS athletes in the TRAC on Thursday, March 11, after school. Speaking on the “Power of Teammates”, Singleton has toured the country as an inspirational speaker.
Singleton has spoken to over 60,000 students nationwide and on different mediums, including E:60, Sports Illustrated, CNN and USA Today. His mother, Sharonda Singleton, was murdered along with eight others in the Charleston, South Carolina, church shooting in 2015.
