MLB Evangelism

I was watching the Yankees mangle the Tigers last night and was impressed with Phil Hughes' pitching. Then I noticed the close up of his glove that is normal for TV coverage of pitchers.

Usually you see their name elegantly stitched into the leather; I saw that and a huge "Phil 4:13." That's Philippians ch. 4 verse 13:

"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."

When I see a guy like Hughes who can "do things" at a level that 99% of us cannot--at a level that commands millions of dollars--it impacts me to know that he believes his ability doesn't come from himself, but God.

So I guess last night God didn't like the Tigers ;-)
