Batter up!

Focus on the Family is taking its message to the ballpark this summer, sponsoring a number of "Faith Nights" and "Faith Days" at major- and minor-league baseball games.

Focus' debut Faith Night -- done in partnership with Third Coast Sports -- was July 27 during an Atlanta Braves-Florida Marlins game in Atlanta. Focus will sponsor seven such events before the year is out, distributing gift packages that include products and contact info for a host of Focus ministries. Foam fingers are not part of the package.

Don't be looking for a Focus-sponsored Faith Night nearby ... the Springs-based ministry is concentrating on Bible-belt baseball fans, with six of its seven events taking place in Georgia, Alabama and Texas. The seventh will be in Fresno, Calif.
