B&H Author Ben Zobrist Named to Roster of 2013 American League All-Star Team
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Tampa Bay Ray’s Ben Zobrist, co-author of the upcoming book Double Play, has been named featured utility player for the American League. The All Star game, a much-anticipated summer classic featuring the best players in Major League Baseball, will take place on July 16th at Citi Field in New York. This is the second time Zobrist has been named an All Star – the first was when he was part of the 2009 American League team.
Zobrist’s autobiography Double Play, co-written with wife Julianna and best-selling author Mike Yorkey, gives fans a remarkable look into the heart of the athlete whose talent and devotion to God, family and baseball make him one of the most loveable figures in the Major League today. The book will be released in April 2014, prior to the 2014 MLB season.
Double Play also offers practical counsel for helping men and women pray together, creating spiritual conversations, reading and studying Scripture as a couple, and allowing the Holy Spirit to guide their lives and families.
Juliana Zobrist, a recognized Christian music artist who is actively involved in film and radio, shares Ben’s passion for being a testament and witness to others, exemplified by her album “Say It Now,” an anthem that encourages believers to speak up and live boldly.
During the off-season, the Zobrists’ are dynamic speakers who share about marriage, relationships, baseball and their faith.
