It is unfortunate that Trent didn't do a bit more searching before posting this
article. He may have found my annual list here:Major League Mormons
To make it clearer, "Major League Mormons" is a post on the Mormon
blog Times and Seasons.This system doesn't allow posting urls, so I
can't give the link. But it should be easy to find by web search.
Your article missed one of your Best LDS pitchers JJ - Josh Johnson of the
Florida Marlins Era 1.06 record 3 wins 0 losses
Adam Rosales of the Oakland A's is LDS. Duane
I would like to see a list of "Mormons not in professional sports and what
they are doing to help the world".
This one of my pet pevees, I do not like how some pople in the church hold
sports people and those in the media on high pedistel, I would much more like to

there were more articles out there about LDS athletes.
patriot, Pawelek (note spelling) was in Minors through last year, although last
year he played for an independent team -- not in any Major League team's

they do an article on "the little people", those not in the public eye
and the many good things they do to help others. They are truly the famous
