I never see anyone point up when they strike out.

Great article at ESPN about the intersection of faith and sports with Paul Byrd, a pitcher for the Cleveland Indians.

Especially loved his point about players pointing to the sky after a home run…

"…This is something I talk to the guys about: Do you see when guys point to the sky when they hit a home run? It’s funny, I never see anyone point up when they strike out. I’m not a sky-pointer. I’m more of a chest-grabber. I feel God inside of me. People seem to give praise a lot more when they hit a home run and not strike out. I give praise regardless of the outcome. But I feel like he’s right there with me."
