Publishers Weekly
02/10/2014
People of faith believe that God can make His presence known through seemingly serendipitous situations that bring two individuals together. Tampa Bay Rays baseball player Ben Zobrist and singer/songwriter Julianna Zobrist, with the help of bestselling author Yorkey (Every Man’s Battle), relate the stories of their childhood hopes and dreams, the aspirations of their adolescence, and the circumstances that brought them together as husband and wife. The Zobrists recall their meeting, courtship, and marriage in a touching and entertaining “he said, she said” format. Ben’s faith and determination to please God in all he does melds well with Julianna’s joy for life and devotion to family. Life, love, faith, and values are constant themes throughout the book; concentrating on values kept the couple strong first as young single Christians, and later as a young married couple. This memoir offers today’s high school– and college-age youth inspiration for maintaining their values and Christian faith as they work their way through life. (Apr.)

    Ben and Julianna Zobrist put together a great piece of literatur

    Ben and Julianna Zobrist put together a great piece of literature. Double Play is inspiring to anyone, and appeals mainly to Christians. 
    Throughout the book the constant theme is faith and family. Ben and Julianna include some personal experiences where they have kept 
    faith and family first, and also mention some of the great experiences they've had in their professions. For those of you that don't know,
    Ben Zobrist is a professional baseball player for the Tampa Bay Rays, and Julianna Zobrist is a professional singer. Both are very open 
    with their faith, and are always looking for ways to show it. You can see it in the way Ben Zobrist carries himself on the field, and you can
    hear it in the words of Julianna Zobrist's music. This book is also inspiring to young parents, to insure that your kids put faith first. The
    couple writes about stories of God working in their lives, and how in difficult times they look to the Holy Spirit.  The book appeals to me
    because I am a christian baseball player. I learned a lot from Ben Zobrist in this book, and I plan to apply it to my life. The book is also
    appealing to me because I am a die hard Rays fan, and I look up to Ben Zobrist.  This book is a phenomenal and inspirational read for
    people of faith, and I recommend it to anyone. Everyone can learn something from this book.
