More and more members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints are serving 2-year missions and returning to compete at the highest levels of professional sports. This is a list of 65 current and past Latter-day Saint athletes who served missions and played in the NBA, NFL MLB and other professional sports leagues. The list was compiled in connection with Sports Illustrated's cover story on Jabari Parker, who is considering serving a mission. If you think of someone we have missed, we invite you to email us at email@example.com.
