Playing with AIA in Alaska was a blast and I learned so much. I am so thankful I was given the opportunity to grow in my skills as a baseball player and showcase them for Christ. I greatly enjoyed sitting under constant discipleship daily and then being able to compete in one of the best collegiate summer leagues in the country. It was cool to be able to witness to other teams and the Eagle River community through the sport we loved. I would definitely do it again if I was given the opportunity.

This past summer I was blessed and fortunate enough to spend with fellow like minded Christian baseball players. This experience is definitely a once in a lifetime opportunity but if you are lucky you get the opportunity to come back a second year. I was able to connect with my spirituality in a deeper way that I haven’t really been able to connect in before. We are able to come together almost everyday to sit together talk about some topics that are already planned out and then sometimes about topics we as a team come to a conclusion of. Personally I was able to realize that I have nothing to fear and I should do anything with tenacity and the reassurance that God has blessed you to play or do whatever task you may be doing. The spiritual side of going and playing for the Chinooks was an absolute honor. While we were a Christian baseball team we also were a fun team to watch between pitching, field, and hitting we also had great interactions and conversations with the amazing fan base. The ABL and the Chinooks were definitely an amazing and awesome experience!

AIA Baseball provides a great opportunity to learn how to play and live for the Kingdom of God. Any believer’s goal in life should be to know God more and to make Him known, and AIA Baseball gives you that chance. I thank God for my time with AIA Baseball because it has shown me that life and this sport are not about me, but about God’s glory. I would encourage any player that desires to know God more and live for Him to give AIA Baseball a try.
My experience playing with AIA Baseball 25 years ago had a profound impact on my life. It is a wonderful opportunity for players to experience a high level of competition, to grow spiritually through relationships with other players and coaches, and to share their faith in Christ through the platform of baseball.

The Bible says in Matthew 28 to go to the ends of the earth. AIA provides the opportunity for the Christian athletes to fulfill this commandment. I have witnessed first-hand how AIA transforms lives through extensive Bible study, fellowship and discipleship, AIA gives the athlete tremendous platform to share their Christian faith and allows them to develop into a better witness for the Lord Jesus Christ.

We have had many of our young men play with Athletes in Action Baseball. In each case, the players have had an incredible experience. I have observed the growth of my players in the fundamentals of the game, but more importantly have seen young men return with a more intimate walk with God and a deeper passion to live for Christ. I wholeheartedly endorse Athletes in Action Baseball and will continue to encourage my players to participate!

Athletes in Action is one of the greatest experiences a young man can have. The challenges of the baseball are tremendous for growth, but the greatest growth comes in the spiritual side. My son was fortunate enough to play for AIA, and the greatest comment that he had to me was, ‘it was a life changing experience’. I would recommend AIA for any college baseball athlete.

The experience of serving God thru AIA helped us to grow spiritually and as a family. To be a part of helping others grow in their walks and to tell others about our Savior while playing baseball is dream come true. There is no better way to spend a summer.
