There has never been anything quite like Champions of Faith. It is as inspiring
as it is professionally crafted. Guaranteed to touch to all Catholics, the film
demonstrates the role that Catholicism plays in the life of some of today's
greatest baseball players and managers. As such it acts as a perfect soundboard
for discussions at home and in the classroom. I highly recommend it!

Champions of Faith is filled with power packed testimonies from some
faithful men of God who just happen to be famous athletes. Mike Sweeney
of the Kansas City Royals is one of the men featured in the film, and is the Life Teen
National Spokesperson. After watching the video you wonder if these guys are real
from what I know of Mike Sweeney this story is true and inspiring. A must have for families,
sports teams and anyone who works with young people. A great film for your family!
Randy Raus, President / CEO Life Teen
Champions of Faith succeeds 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
ought to 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
I thought CHAMPIONS OF FAITH was terrific. The witness to Christ of these baseball
stars and their unapologetic love of the Catholic Church was truly inspiring.
I hope many of our youth will get to see this wonderful film. I am happy to offer my endorsement.
Bishop Thomas Olmsted, Bishop of Phoenix
The story just unfolded so velvety and every piece was great and very inspiring .
There's 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 being able
to tell people about my story is one of my proudest moments.
Mike Piazza, Designated Hitter for the Oakland A's, 12-time All-Star
It was very exciting and very inspirational to see the other players share their faith.
I think it's going to be a great tool of evangelization . I think that if you have
influence in the Catholic world, I think you should tell people to buy this
film because I think it's going to spread the Word of God. I give it two thumbs up
and it's very, very inspirational.
Jeff Suppan, Pitcher for the Milwaukee Brewers, MVP for 2006 NCLS
To me it felt like Christmas, New Year's Eve, my birthday and Easter morning all wrapped into one,
seeing this film Champions of Faith. I've never been more proud of anything in my life.
More proud than anything that I've done on the baseball field. This is something that I can hang my hat on . This is something that I can show to my kids and grandkids someday.
It truly is a treasure . I'm so blessed to be a part of it. I think that every person
in America needs to watch this film.
Mike Sweeney, Captain of the Kansas City Royals, 5-time All Star
"My congratulations to all involved in this creative evangelization tool!
I believe this will be a powerful tool for the youth to grow in their appreciation
of the faith as well as the real presence of Christ in the Eucharist.
I was very impressed with the testimony of Jack McKeon and the others athletes."
