Throughout the years Pittsburgh has had the privilege of experiencing many great sport moments. Super Bowls, Word Series, Stanley Cups, NCAA football championships. As exciting and memorable as these accomplishments are the fact is that these are just moments in time. Distant memories. Trophies we can't take with us. Accomplishments that are here today gone tomorrow.

However, Branch Rickey former GM of the Pittsburgh Pirates, left a legacy of impacting others spiritually that will live forever. His heart to see the FCA vision take hold was the genesis of the largest Sports Ministry in the world and has been the vehicle which introduces coaches and athletes across the world to the gospel every year. To think that it all started right here on the North side Pirate offices over 50 years ago should bring Pittsburghers true joy.
