Many fans watch their favorite baseball team with a religious devotion. For Baseball Chapel, an evangelical organization with unrivaled access to Major League Baseball’s teams, sports are a vehicle to spread the word of religion. tries to have it both ways, saying:

Baseball Chapel is a non-denominational Christian ministry committed to the spiritual development of people throughout professional baseball. Although we hold to Christian beliefs, we seek to minister to baseball players regardless of their religious beliefs. Our desire is to encourage baseball people through the message of Jesus Christ, so that they would understand the importance of following Him.

The track record Baseball Chapel has demonstrated over four decades of service shows that the organization has never sought to be divisive, intrusive or to exclude anyone of another faith.

Ah, that clears it right up.
