"This entertaining and moving film breaks new ground in allowing cultural icons to be part of a high-quality film and at the same time to speak lovingly of Jesus Christ and how their spiritual lives have enriched their professional careers. This is a prime example of what the Church needs to be doing to reach people where they are. It is a beautiful expression of evangelization through media." --Cardinal Justin Rigali of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia

Champions of Faith succeed in uplifting young people with the stories of authentic and admirable baseball heroes who are totally open in revealing the role religious faith plays in their lives as Christians. This engaging production should be shared and discussed with youths in schools, religious education classes, and team meetings. To me, it's a nine-inning faith classic! --Bishop Ignatius Catanello, Auxiliary Bishop Diocese of Brooklyn

The story just unfolded, so unfolding, and every piece was great and very inspiring. There are many times I was in tears just from the emotion of it - from everybody's story. I've had some great moments in my life but being part of this and telling people about my story is one of my proudest moments. --Mike Piazza, Designated Hitter for the Oakland A's,
12-time All-Star
