NATIONAL NEWS
Start of Baseball Season Allows FCA to Reach More Coaches and Athletes for Christ

The beginning of baseball is a fresh chance for FCA to find new ways to reach coaches and athletes on baseball and softball diamonds at every level. FCA Magazine has told some of the most inspiring stories of professional baseball's major players, including Chase Headley, Andrew McCutchen, Dexter Fowler, Mike Matheny, Adrian Gonzalez, Kyle Gibson, Daniel Murphy and more. 
"Looking back on my life and career, I know that God is the only reason I am where I am today. He has chosen to put me here to share His love with others. I understand I have a huge platform as a professional athlete, so I try to use it to share my faith through my actions, how I handle adversity on the field, and in the words I speak to the media and fans."

- Chase Headley
