Twelve Stories of Finding God at the Old Ball Park

edited by Gregory F. Augustine Pierce (ACTA Publications)


Patrick Hannon, CSC, ’88M.Div., and Robert Raccuglia ’74 are among those who share their stories of how they connected to God while enjoying the great American pastime. “I go to churches and ballparks for pretty much the same reason: because God is there,” writes Father Hannon in “The Banjo Man.”

The 12 pieces here also include “Under the Lights” by famed storyteller Andre Dubus.
