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 paperback edition chronicles the lives of several players who stand strong for their Christian faith on the diamond.

Playing with Purpose: Baseball will introduce you to talented athletes with compelling faith stories.
