Patrick McCaskey Speaks at Andrew HS



Chicago Bears Senior Director and Sporting Chance Press author Patrick McCaskey was the featured speaker at St. Stephen Parish Men's Club Mass and Sports Sundays Event at 7:00 p.m. on June 11, 2011 at Andrew High School Auditorium. The Event also featured a showing of the Champions of Faith™ movie.

The popular Champions of Faith: Baseball Edition is a multi-award winning film that explores the intersection of sports and faith in Major League Baseball--profiling many of the most accomplished and devout figures in the game like Mike Piazza, David Eckstein, Jeff Suppan, Mike Sweeney, Jack McKeon and Rich Donnelly. In the film, each athlete stressed the fact that their faith was central to life both on and off the field. After the film, Bears Senior Director Patrick McCaskey spoke about his 36 years in the Bears organization and his growing up in an exceptional Catholic family. McCaskey's presentation was followed by a question and answer period, which included some spirited questions from young athletes in the parish. Books were signed in a meet and greet session after the film, moms and dads took photos of their kids and the Bears Director gave away copies of his Bears Prayer book marks.

Sports and Faith is available at select bookstores and directly from the publisher at www.sportingchancepress.com.
