Meet the "starting lineup" of talented major league players with fascinating faith stories in Playing with Purpose: Baseball. Just in time for the new pro season, this book chronicles the lives of several players who stand strong for their Christian faith on the diamond. Veteran CBA author Mike Yorkey, whose Playing with Purpose biography of NFL rookies Sam Bradford, Tim Tebow, and Colt McCoy was a best-seller, now profiles major league stars both established and up-and-coming-including Albert Pujols, Josh Hamilton, Matt Holliday, Adrian Gonzalez, Ben Zobrist, and Mariano Rivera. With an introduction describing the San Francisco Giant's "God Squad" of the late 1980s and the Colorado Rockies' preference for Christian players in the mid 2000's, Playing with Purpose: Baseball will introduce you to talented athletes with compelling faith stories.
