Fancy Store-Bought Dirt: Two Unrelated Thoughts About Tony Batista --
Via Matt (via Greg) comes a Minneapolis Star Tribune story on baseball player Tony Batista, back from a year in Japan:

If anyone thought Batista would shrivel from his Japanese experience, they were mistaken. Like anything in his deeply spiritual life, he speaks of it now as part of God's divine plan.

With Fukuoka, he said, he handed out Bibles inside the clubhouse to his Japanese teammates.

"And they read the Bible," he said, without sounding surprised. "So I think God probably said, 'You're done over there. So go back here to Minnesota and talk about Jesus Christ to those guys.' "
