Film premiere attracts Major League Baseball’s biggest stars

.- The Arizona Desert set the stage Sunday night for the World Premiere of a breathtaking new film featuring some of the biggest stars in Major League Baseball. Champions of Faith: Baseball is a stunning one-hour sports documentary, which depicts America’s favorite pastime as a metaphor for life.

Major League Baseball champions Mike Piazza, Jeff Suppan and Mike Sweeney attended the debut screening that unveiled an All-Star line-up of baseball greats speaking frankly about how their faith has shaped their Major League careers.

Designated hitter for the Oakland A’s and 12-time All-Star Mike Piazza was visibly moved. “This is not just a sports film,” Piazza said. “It’s a work of art.”

Mike Sweeney, captain of the Kansas City Royals and five-time All-Star, said the film “is a treasure that will inspire others for generations.”

“I have never, in my entire life, been more proud to be part of a fraternity or cast of men like this,” said Sweeney.

“It’s my hope that the film touches every household in America the way it has already touched mine,” said Tom Allen, who produced the film. He described the project as one of the most challenging and exhilarating experiences of his life.

Champions of Faith: Baseball will be available on DVD next month in English and Spanish subtitle formats, after the opening of the Major League Baseball Season.
