“I try to be myself and let my teammates know where I stand in my relationship with the Lord. But at the same time, I don’t want them to feel like I’m trying to beat them over the head. I hope to be their friend and build a relationship with them and let them know that I’m there for them. I feel like if I build relationships and prepare my heart for a chance to share with others, God will use me in a way that will glorify Him.” -Matt Holliday, 2008 March/April issue of Sports Spectrum
“When your superstar status type guys are successful in what they do, some of the non-believers on the team can see that you can be a Christian and still be aggressive in the baseball realm and be a good baseball player. To have the key leaders on a team be believers, and for them to live a certain way is significant.” -Jeremy Affeldt, 2008 March/April issue of Sports Spectrum
