Faith and Major League Baseball featured in new film

.- A new full-length documentary looks at how faith has shaped the careers of several Major League Baseball players. The film will premiere on Sunday in the presence of Bishop Thomas Olmstead of Phoenix.

“Champions of Faith: Baseball Edition” features Mike Piazza, Jeff Suppan, Jack McKeon, Mike Sweeney, David Eckstein and Rich Donnelly.

These superstars of America's favorite pastime speak frankly about family, faith, sacrifice, leadership, humility and the many virtues and spiritual lessons they have learned from the game.

Shot in high-definition video and featuring thrilling game highlights from Major League Baseball Productions and music from legendary recording artist Bob Dylan, Champions of Faith claims to be an emotionally powerful, action-packed glimpse into the lives and personal faith of the nation's most popular sports heroes.

Other players, coaches and managers featured in the film include: Tom Glavine, Craig Biggio, Sean Casey, Pudge Rodriquez, Jim Leyland, Mike Scioscia, Juan Pierre, Mark Prior, Ozzie Guillen, A.J. Pierzynski, Lance Berkman, Chris Speier, Roberto Beltran, Sandy Alomar and many more.

The documentary is scheduled for DVD release at the start of the 2007 Major League Baseball season. It was produced by Tom Allen of Catholic Exchange and written by John Morales. This is the first-ever Catholic Exchange documentary.
