To celebrate the wrap of the World Series, the Call Me Catholic Countdown lists the top five ways Baseball is like Catholicism.
Fr. Alan Benander, O. Praem, high school baseball coach and former player, brings his deep knowledge of baseball to the discussion today as he and Peggy discuss what we can learn about virtuous living from America’s favorite pastime. And why, exactly, are Catholics in particular drawn to this sport.
Peggy quizzes Fr. Alan and JimmyG, both baseball afficianados, on their knowledge of the sport with a Baseball Trivia Challenge. Listeners are invited to call in with their questions and comments for Fr. Alan.
In Chatting with Catholics, Peggy takes her microphone to a local parish school athletic event and asks the spectators and participants what we can learn about our faith in the pursuit of team sports.
