Product Description

Burke Masters had the perfect game plan for his life: he wanted to play Major League Baseball. He was well on his way to the career of his dreams as a star infielder for Mississippi State, with a game-winning grand slam to help his team reach the College World Series. But little did he realize that his life-changing call would come from God rather than a recruiter to join the Major Leagues.

Fr. Burke takes readers on an intimate personal journey in this page-turning book, from his youth outside of Chicago, to his baseball success, to his conversion to Catholicism, and last but not least to his acceptance of his vocation. He came to embrace his core identity—not as an athlete, but as a cherished son of God and a spiritual father to God's people—in the midst of great doubt and personal grief. Fr. Burke's narrative is a compelling reminder that God's plan for us is far better than our own; that it fulfils our aspirations in ways we could never have imagined; and that if we only have the courage to say yes, every moment is an opportunity to hit a grand slam for God.
