New York Times profiles devout Catholic baseball manager

Catholic World News - August 03, 2011

The New York Times offers a portrait of a major-league baseball manager--Jack McKeon of the Florida Marlins--who sustains his Catholic faith by attending Mass each morning.

McKeon makes a point of finding a Catholic church in each of the cities where his team plays, and acquainting himself with the schedule of services.

    Very cool. For those who love baseball and want to learn a little more, check out Jack McKeon in the "Champions of Faith" DVD.
