Healing and my absolute favorite sport

I’m an avid sports fan, but baseball is my absolute favorite. I’ve been playing since I was six (I’m 14 now), and on my team I play first base and pitch. In my down time I love following the Boston Red Sox, the St. Louis Cardinals, and my favorite team, the Atlanta Braves. 

At a tournament game last spring, I was batting and the pitcher was throwing hard. A pitch fired in, hitting me right on the elbow. Even though it hurt a lot, I jogged down to first base. When I got there, I admit my first thought was: “Just tough it out, Will. It’ll feel better after you run.” My coach encouraged me to stay in the game. I knew that, as a Christian Scientist, I could “battle” in a different, more effective way by turning to God for help.
