Just in time for the new baseball season, Playing with Purpose: Baseball chronicles the lives of several players who stand strong for their Christian faith on the professional 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 majoy league stars both established and up-an-coming--including Albert Pujols, Josh Hamilton, Clayton Kershaw, Carlos Beltran, Stephen Drew, Adrian Gonzalez, Ben Zobrist, Mark Teixeira, Jeremy Affeldt, and Mariano Rivera. Playing with Purpose: Baseball introduces readers to talented athletes with compelling faith stories.
What a great book for the man in your life! My husband waited for me to read this book, all the while asking, Are you done yet? He could not wait to get his hands on it, I think it's now on the top of his reading pile!
I must admit, I am not a huge baseball fan, but even I recognized some of the names that were featured in this book! Yorkey does an excellent job introducing the reader to each featured player, giving background information on them and sharing their story. If you are short on time, look up a specific player you are interested in and read his story, or just work your way through one chapter at a time!
Father's Day is right around the corner...if you're looking for a gift for the baseball lover in your life, then this is the gift you'll want to get him! I give this book 5 stars!
**I received this book free from the publisher for my honest review.**
