Item Description...
Overview
The White Sox were leading in the ninth with two men already out. The crack as bat met ball could be heard across the entire field. Watching the ball rise, Bill knew it was far over his head, but still he ran. The bleachers, filled beyond capacity, had spilled many of their spectators over into the field. With an eye still on the ball and the crowd parting before him like the Red Sea before Moses, Billy was sure that the ball would go over the fence. Jumping over a bench someone had hauled onto the field, Bill stopped where he thought the ball would come down. But he had guessed short. It was still going over his head. He jumped as high as he could, shoved his left hand out as far as it could go, and felt the thud as the ball hit his glove. The momentum carried him to the ground, but somehow he held onto the ball. After the game the other players were on him, pummeling him and cheering him all the way to the clubroom. "Thanks, fellows," said Billy, "but it wasn't just me out there this afternoon. It wasn't just Billy who caught that ball; it was Billy and God." A pro ballplayer who was also a Christian? No one ever heard of such a thing! But Billy didn't care. Whatever Billy did, he did with total enthusiasm - playing ball and telling people about Jesus. The first record Billy set in the major leagues was one for the most consecutive strikeouts - thirteen his first thirteen times up to bat. His speed when he finally did start hitting, however, was hard to believe.

A professional baseball player, Sunday's enthusiasm for sports carried through to his religion.

Billy Sunday Was An Evangelical Folk Hero  Sep 26, 2005
My neighbor gave this book to me to read when I was about fourteen and just happened to tell her I had never heard of Billy Sunday, an evangelist she'd just mentioned. It's true I had never heard of Billy Sunday before that but every time I hear a reference to him now, I immediately think of this book and that sunny afternoon in 1993.

"Sunday" was a man who began life as a baseball player and remembered his days in that sport and the lessons it taught him about how to work a crowd. This backwoods Hellfire preacher was one of the most famous of all living Americans in his day and he headed open-air revivals the faithful would drive for days on end to reach. His charisma, forcefulness and dyed-in-the-wool sense of conviction gave him a powerful energy that sparked the interest of millions. One thing that I most remember about this brief biography of the first of the great broadcast media evangelists is the tone of respect it has for its subject. In fact it had so much reverence for Billy Sunday that I felt like maybe its lack of impartiality somewhat hamstrung its impartial reporting of the facts. So if anyone wants a celebration of Billy Sunday, this is the book, but for a warts and all portrait, I'd investigate what else is out there.

(Thanks, Mrs. Glenn!)
