    Well I love God and baseball so this was a great daily devotional combo for me. Poland takes various past and present mlb players and shares their faith with us. He combines this with God's word to give great daily lessons. Some of these brought tears to my eyes. Mickey Mantle coming to Jesus at the end of his life, players raising mentally challenged kids, players putting their fame and fortune into proper prospective etc. I really enjoyed this devotional and highly recommend it.
